Re: what to look for in a cj when buying?
I'd pass on this Jeep unless it was just a killer deal, a 77 with a T-18 is a nice older Cj-7, but personally I wouldn't get any Cj-7 that was older then an 83. Why, cause you get the widetrack axles, the Dana 300, you can look for one with a T-176 4 spd. tranny (the best CJ tranmission next after the T-18) plus the body and frame will probably be in better shape. Old jeeps are just to much of a project for me anymore, I got too many projects as is, an almost complete rebuild of a 28 year old jeep just doesn't sound appealing to me not when you can a newer 7 for cheap.
