  • New Guy, Sort of...

    2 years ago I made one post, so technically I was new back then but I recently rediscovered the CJ forum.

    I've had my 1985 CJ7 since 1992. It was my daily driver through high school, college and for a year after that. In 2003, I blew the clutch. I have the parts to fix it, but since then I got married, bought a house, and now have a 1 yr old son. So the Jeep sits.

    I considered selling it, but with the rough condition of the body, I would get very little for it, and I'd want another one eventually anyway. My loving wife told me not to sell it because she didn't want to hear me complain about it being gone and she acknowledged that whether she likes it or not I would get back into it one day.

    Getting back on the forum REALLY makes me want to tear into my Jeep and get it back on the road.


    1985 CJ7
    305 Chevy V8, from an 85 Monte Carlo, mostly stock except for Edelbrock intake & carb, MSD ignition, Mallory Unilite Distributor.
    Ford T-18 w/ granny low, Novak adapter to Dana 300 T-case
    Stock D30 and AMC20 axles.
    4" suspension lift, Skyjacker front and Pro-Comp rear
    33x12.5 Pro-Comp M/T on 15x10 Black Steel Rockcrawler wheels
    AGR power steering box.

    Many other small mods, too many to remember or list.

      Hey, welcome back to the Jeepthing! I guess it was dormant in you for a while, but now it's back. Fix that baby up! You have a future Jeeper to teach, after all.
      And as for your wife, she's a good one since she understands. Maybe you can convert her over to the dark side too! My hubby did it with me, now nothing but a Jeep will sit in my driveway!

        Good for you that you didn't get rid of it.
        Now, you know that as soon as your Jeep detects extra money in the bank, it will start haunting your dreams and demanding new parts.
        And definitely welcome to the forums here!

            Welcome back and congrats on the kid! I have four.
            Because I have four, I need another Jeep!
            Luckily, my wife loves the Jeep (86 CJ7) and won't allow me to sell it either.

            Oh yeah...and my Jeep doesn't wait until I have cash in the haunts my dreams all the time asking for stuff!
