2 trade my CJ or not 2 Trade my CJ, that is the ?
My Jeep 1980 CJ-7; 2.5 I4; SR-4 tranny (no leaks in eather) 4wheel Disk breaks, all new accesories under the hood (starter, water pump, altenator, belts, radiator, hoses, master cylinder, clutch cylinder, rear main, front main seals, oil pan gasket, new seals in Tranny and Transfer case, new breaklines and callipers (all 4), Herculiner, new seats, nice rims, Led tail lights, custom front and rear bumpers, new gauges, heater core, heater blower motor... and I am sure I am missing alot of other stuff.
Ive been quoted $800.00 for a full custom roll cage (replaceing my stock bar included). All is good and I am ready to to it, that is untill my wife pipes in and suggests traiding my CJ and taking the roll cage money and buying a newer jeep...
I know that Id get about $4000 on trade for mine, (a loss concidering what I put into it) but a newer jeep...newer than 1990 is appealing. But Id have to start over on my build. More than anything Id like the confidence to know I could drive the jeep 1000miles to wheel and not be concerned about breaking down. SO do I continue on the CJ or do I jump ship and start over on a newer model? What do you think???
