What should I do? I have an 86 CJ-7 Renegade
. It has a 258, T5, Dana 300, Dana 44 (rear), 59K miles, A/C, Holley 390cfm 4bbl, aliminum head, Clifford intake and exhaust manifolds, Jacobs ignition, 2.5" lift, Rancho's, 32x11.50's, hard top, soft top, and bikini top. I love this vehicle and it is a good looking vehicle. The problem is it needs 3 new lifters, a new cam, a radiator, water pump, oil pan gasket, distributor gasket, main seal, and rear seal. It will cost about $1500 to repair it all and there's no garauntee I won't need more work down the road. This is my second Jeep so I am well aware of what I was getting into when I bought it. It's my daily driver and I'm getting tired of the constant repairs.
Help me here. I'm down in the dumps and very close to sticking a For Sale on it. I've been looking at the new Grand Cherokees. Everytime I see one I think about how comfortable and maintenance free I could be. But then I wake up and think, hey, I'm in a CJ, what could be greater.
Someone talk me out of selling it, please.
