Saving the Cj5 from the grave

Well I picked up a 1972 CJ5 with a 304 the other day. It pretty much was on its way to the scrap yard and I just couldn't let the guy do that. It needs a lot of work but work has begun. I pulled the intake on it last night and will be cleaning it up to put back on. Floors are beyond repair so will be replacing the floor from front to back and go from there.

you need to buy my 73. good running 304,runs at all angles with new 2100 carburator. t18 trans with 20 case. dana 44 rear 4.10 gears and a detroit. Newer steering gear, 31 tsl's good gas tank, new fuel pump. Begginings of a cage with front hoop.

It has been parked for sometime ie 3-4 years. With a new battery it always starts and goes. body is bad as is the frame. Motor tranny and rear axle should be worth something to ya?
