    I've got a 62 CJ6 with a F134 that has sat in my garage for 3 years being slowly worked on... Hoping in the next month or so get it running again and on the road.

    It's been a while since someone added a "6". Intermediate, not early. 304, T15, D20, power steering, Whitco top, original interior. 1972_jeep_cj6_1564519757891c3e7bebd2b9IMG_1481_DxO-940x696.jpg

    I've found a CJ 6 that is in the process of being rebuilt and the owner needs to sell. Motor has been rebuilt and body/frame look to be in decent condition. Not familiar with the CJ6 and how popular or valuable it is. Was wondering what a decent price for one is and is it worth buying and putting money into as a DD or put it on the market. I have a 78 cj 7 being restored and a 1960 cj 5 that needs to be restored. Trying to decide if the 6 is a better option to mess with than the 5. Realize that this is very sketchy info but looking for someone with knowledge and experience to help walk me through this opportunity. Newbie to the site and found this thread and hoped you fellows can give me some input and insight to look for and be aware of. Got lots to learn. Thanks

    A CJ6 is the same as a CJ5, but 20 inches longer. They have a lot more room for people and gear inside, but less maneuverability on tight trails.

    That is one heck of a thread. Lots of info. I guess my main question is how do the 6s compare to the 8s in desirability and value? Should I just stay on track with my 60 cj5 or consider getting into the 6 and building a more desirable vehicle from an investment stand as well as being a better candidate for a daily driver. Not really into trailing or heavy off roading. Like the idea of the longer wheel base and more bed room. The 5 is complete and has a good body but the 134 is frozen. Not sure about the other parts of the drivetrain. Into it for very little. Can get the 6 for around 2k with a rebuilt motor. Not sure about the build quality at this time. Just found it and am considering my options.

    Here is the CJ6 that I started way back in 15, I think.

    I'm happy with it, but there always projects. Hopefully power Saginaw will be next, and a d30.

    Well last year I had three CJ-6s and now I'm down to just one. It's compostwerks 62 Perkins. Sold two to Mr. Sullivan in NH. I just covered it up for the winter, cuz I have the M416 and 46 in the barn this winter to finish them up.

    Resized_20191129_111257.jpeg Resized_20191129_111257.jpeg Farm Jeep Willy is a 1958 CJ6 with a custom 2x5x1/4" frame, Aqualu body, swapped in 225, SM465, Dana 20, Scout 44 front with Ford internal spline hubs, Chevy spindles and backing plates, narrowed to early Jeep width, and a Dana 60, also appropriately narrowed. 15x8 Wheel Vintiques with 33x10.50x15 BFG All Terrains, Warn VR8000 winch, and now weighs around 4400# I think. It tows a camper regularly, has towed a 6500# skid steer on a two axle trailer a few times, used in the brush as the paint can attest to, and is waiting for power steering and brakes. Its Rhino lined inside because I have 4 children who love playing in it and using it like a jungle gym.

    That's kinda my feeling as well. Just not familiar with the 6s and trying to decide if its worth changing projects. My concern is still, how popular are the 6s in the jeep community and are they sought after, much like the 8s?

    My take is that they are popular with the classic jeep crowd, but not sought after like the 8s.

    That seems to be the input I'm getting from all avenues searched. Thanks again for the info.
