Jeep experts opinion needed
I'm looking at getting a new toy to play around with on weekends and cruise around with. I've always wanted an older jeep. Well i found one. Looking for some input on it to see what some of y'all think.
Here are the specs:
1981 Jeep CJ7 wrangler 8000 miles since rebuilt in 2002
Rebuilt 304 V8 w/ fuel injection
Rebuilt 999 auto trans with B&M shifter
Both differentials rebuilt:
Bearing and seals
Added Summers one piece axles in the rear diff
Added disc brakes to rear diff
New paint (although I think it’s not perfect it’s still looks good)
New Corbeau seats with 5 point harness
New gauges in 09
New electric fuel pump in 09
Come with 3 tops: hard w/hard doors-black, soft w/soft doors-tan, and bikini-black
New body bushings
New “be-cool” aluminum radiator
4” lift with rancho shocks
5 new tires
Overall, it looks pretty good and is in decent shape. no rust or dents. I've talked to the guy about it a few times and i'm going to go drive it around on Saturday. Looking to get a few opinions about it from people that know a little more about Jeeps than i do. I know enough to be dangerous and that's about it. Guy wants $9500 for it, but i've got him down to $8500 so far.
