$8K sounds kinda high....but I've never bought or sold a used CJ...I say you buy a complete stocker (the more rust the better starting point) and go at it! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Oh yeah, and it don't really matter much if it appeals to me does it? <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

Damn, one more edit...the tranny could be important to know, because if its stock, you'll want to replace it, because a T5 (forgot the year we're talking about here) or T4 or pretty much any stock CJ tranny won't hold up too well to a V8, especially if a 16 year old is drivin' it. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Ya you might be, but that 350 purring under the hood is sorta hard to resist....

8K is sorta pricey but if the engine is in tip top shape and installed right and the body is in good shape I would say go for it.

I just gave 6k for a 85 CJ-7 w/hardtop in darn near perfect condition with stock stuff.

The choice is yours....

Look at this one! Here is the link to the sale ad. Glenn's Willy's



Now you think that $8k is a good deal for yours? I say get a bus ticket and a little more cash from mom or dad and get this one. Call Glenn I am sure you can work something out.

Better question. How's he afford a lifted TJ and still have enough money to buy an overpriced CJ??? He's either full of crap, or he's got rich parents. If it's the second of the two, more power to ya. If you're just bullshitting us, then I have to ask... WHY?

The red will make it go faster, blue is better for rocks, green gives it more power, orange will ren better at extreem angles.
maybe you should go for a <IMG SRC="smilies/rainbow.gif" border="0"> paintjob!

seriously though it sounds high. I paid
$1200 for my cj5 but it already had some sh*t done to it, but it is a '67.

sense the owner doesnt even know what axles it has I would not Trust any of the vehicle, have someone go over it with a fine toothed comb. It sounds very overpriced and like it wasnt put together by someone who knew what they were doing, and the purchaser is kinda naive and doesnt know exactly what he is looking at. Pass this one up there will be a much better deal out there for you

For a base line, I just bought an 85 CJ7 with a warmed over 350 for $6000 in Austin. Stock T5 and 20 rear. No rust, garaged. Got it with an 8k Ramsey, full steel doors and new 32x11.50 BFGMTs.

I'm a dumbass and haven't even wheeled it yet. Instead I'm right in the middle of installing a 465 and fighting off "junk vehicle" tickets because the cops think the jackstand under my oil pan is permanent. Fuckers. <IMG SRC="smilies/flipoff.gif" border="0">
