Just bought a Jeep

I am going to go pick it up tomorrow.

It is a 75 CJ5 the guy says that the engine cranks but doesn't fire. I am thinking it is probably the electronic box.
He also said that the frame not rusted. He also says that is has dana rears,a three speed trans, and 258 6cyl.

Here are a few pics:






Once I get it, Im going to get it running, and make a trail rig out of it.

Where is a good place to buy jeep parts. I am pretty possitve that I am going to lift it....

1996 Ford F350, 7.3 PSD, crew cab, 8ft(Line X'd) bed, 4x4, 5 speed manual, 4.11 gears, 285/75/16 Nitto Terra Grapplers, 222,000 miles, DP-Tuner Chip NS 1200 high idle stock 60Tow 80econo 120Race, 3x4" down pipe, 4" exhaust straight piped with 5" polished SS tip, gutted EBPV, chrome nerf bars, autometer ultra lite pyro and boost gauges, alpine cd player, alpine speakers, Garmin GPS.

Check 4 wheel parts, or google depends on what parts you want, just shop around. Looks like its clean, it should run good, if not you can always drop a 350 in it. My 81 cj has the same motor, if it will ever die that's what I'm going to do!

98 GMC Sierra 1500 xcab sb 4x4 hypertech tuned 160000mi.

My other diesel has a 105 foot ladder on top-IAFF 2195

4wd.com go online and order a catalog. I had a 77 CJ5 and they had just about every part I needed for that jeep.

2006 Dodge Laramie Quad cab 4X4 muffler delete, that's it.

that is awesome man... they are a blast... the 4.0 won't die... its a shame it was sacraficed to the global warming gods...

early '99 converted to late '99 F-350 dually, 4x4, 4 door, long bed, 6 speed. Midwest transmissions 05+ zf-6 transmission with their short throw shifter and SB clutch. Rosewood 180cc with 80% nozzles, Termy modded 17* HPOP, International bellowed up pipes, fs-2500, DP Tunes. A few other things here and there...
dually club member.. Why replace 5 tires when you can replace seven? I like my training wheels...
