Joined a while ago, just been reading and taking in all the information. Decided it was time to share my build and join in with fun here.
I have an 1986 CJ7 that i am rebuilding. Got the tub off this week, and the old engine out, putting an LS that I built in it.

Trying to get my limit in, been looking through the posts for a while now, decided to break down and register to get it all out of the way...
I think you have to buy a star to be able to post pics.

Just found this site. I hope the site is still really active. So far I have found a lot of good info.
Interested in Jeeps and Toyota truck mods

We have a 2006 Jeep Liberty CRD 2.8L diesel.
I seem to have a great deal of difficulty picking out parts that are worth buying for this thing / Parts that will last a decent amount of time after being installed.
So far I haven't been getting much for recommendations for parts either.
I search before I post. I know there are some things that get posted over and over again. Apparently I really suck at searching.
I can't even find my own posts on the 6.5 diesel forums - An area where sometimes I can even answer a question or 2. And like on all forums the same questions are repeated almost daily

I've been on here for a few years enjoying the content.. Figured it was time to step out of the dark and say Hello..
My jeep build is getting more and more serious, I hope to offer some support to others.

|Bjlee86||Hey from South Carolina. New here and have a great deal to learn. I'm also new to the jeep culture, but did some muddin in my high school days. I've been looking into getting a Jeep for a while and finally found one that caught my eye, an 84 CJ-7. Its a project, but runs well. I'm sure ill be asking plenty of questions, but just to make sure I'm not shunned, I'll search first before posting.|

[QUOTE=marno11;38900610]Awesome bonnet man, did you make that?
Yes I did, glad you like it. I have a build thread in the Willys section titled "47 Willys after-build thread" or something like that.

Hey people. More of a re-introduction. I'm not totally new here, but about the time I was settling in, I totaled my truck last Dec when I had a seizure coming home from a VA appointment. I have been without a 4x4 since, almost a year. I'm going to be back in a Jeep CJ5, but I wonder how many of these old warriors are still going out there. I've had 2 Jeeps before, both CJ5s, and both prior to the internet. After years in big trucks, I'm coming home to a CJ5. I've got money down on a 1979 that I will take delivery of in Jan.
This Jeep was built as a sand toy, and I want to run trails with it, and take it on camping trips (overlanding) so I've got many changes to make, but that's half the fun right?. Being a "real" Jeep, and not a "soccer mom grocery getter", it will also make a perfect summer no-top no-doors cruising vehicle. It is powered by a 1970s Dodge truck drivetrain, 360 with a Torqueflite 727 trans and D20 T-case. Axles are SOA D44 front and Chrysler 9.25 rear with 4.88 gears and 4 wheel disc brakes. The rear has a Detroit locker.
I'm U.S. Army retired. Been married 21 years and we have one of each. Big dog lover. We have 3, and one of them is a TBI/PTSD service dog that goes everywhere I do. The Jeep will be build to accommodate her as my wife won't wheel, and the kids are college age. I also have some mangled up discs in my back and neck, and walk with a cane, so a suspension seat is the first thing, and a possible coilover setup in the future to soften out the ride in such a short bouncy leaf sprung vehicle. I love the CJ5s, but was much younger when I had my first two.
Looking forward to reading, learning, and sharing. Well, here she is as I will get her.
Thinking pretty strongly that I will "Army up" the Jeep in a M38A1 style. Partly as a tribute to all my brothers and sisters who have served before, with, and after me, but also because I just never got over thinking that military vehicles are cool as I aged. Other option is my standard fall back design of black truck with red steelies.
There will be a build thread. It will be a long drawn out one too, Expensive hobbies and VA disability don't go well together. I will also ask for advice along the way. All minor things at first, until about this time next year when I'll really tear into her in the garage over the winter. I've got 2.5 years.
I won't get this one delivered for 2 months yet. It's killing me. I'm chomping at the bit, to get her ready for a trip to Alaska by summer 2019, and still be able to wheel on the weekends.
Yahoo... Indiana to Prudhoe Bay in a CJ5!
