1981 Jeep CJ-7
SOLD - 12/14/06

I bought this 1981 Jeep CJ-7 on June 11, 2002 as a project to restore and eventually make into a daily driver. When I got it, the steering was completely shot, brakes non-exsistent and virtually every piece of emissions equipment was ripped out from under the hood. In truth, there was a lot more wrong with it than that and for the first couple of months, I had really wondered what the hell I got myself into. I'll tell you one thing, if you aren't capable or willing to do 99% of all the work required to bring a vehicle like this back to life, don't buy one as you'll go broke in a hurry taking it to a mechanic. However, if you are capable and willing, these are just about the easiest and best vehicles you could hope to work on as the technology is simple and parts readily available everywhere and for cheap!

A ton of skinned knuckls later, a lot of hard work and more money thrown at it than I probably should have, my CJ is finally a daily driver that looks great, drive great and I love it!


UPDATE: 12/14/06
As of December 14, 2006, my beloved CJ7 has been sold to a guy who just beat cancer and was looking enjoy life a little more. And, it is my sincerest hope that he'll be able to do just that with this wonderful little Jeep :)

Featured Mod
Got oversize tires and no way to carry a full size spare? Then you need a LoD heavy duty rock bumper/swing away tire carrier system. This thing is extremely beefy, well built, can hold up to a 37" tire, has two shackle mounts, a trailer hitch and it's completely rattle free. The best part.... it's really affordable!!
