Neec CJ7 info

I am selling my 93 YJ due to money factors. I would like to get a CJ7 and I cant find any information on what years came with what axles, engines, trannies, and what to look for in these. I will use it as a daily driver and need something with power and will probably end up with 33s with 4 inches of lift. I want a V8, auto or manual, CJ7. What would I look for? Thanks, Tom

The last year for the V-8 was 1979. The 3 speed manual was the T150. AMC 20 rear, Dana 30 front. Dana 20 Tcase.

Re: Neec CJ7 info

The tech page, http://www.off-road.com/jeep/tech , has all sorts of good info on virtually every major component. I did kind of a quick run down for CJ model variations in a post a month or so ago on this subject. (not that it was exhaustive or authoritative...just what I felt was some helpful info. ) Other folks (JEEPN, jo-jo, Turtle, etc) added alot of info in that same post too. You might try a search to find it... I don't have a clue now what the topic was.

Re: Neec CJ7 info

http://www.off-road.com/jeep/swb/articles/specgrid.htm also has some great stuff. If you find one, check out the VIN# at http://specialtyparts.com/vins/vehilceid.htm to make sure what year it is. Personally I like the '78 to '82 era, no emissions crap, the split is in 1980, and the widetrack split was in 1981/2 as well on the CJ 7's & 8's. The early 80's had weaker transmissions but better transfers, coupled with smaller motors. Axles are the same throughout except for wide/narrow track. The '78 did have larger brakes though, but not by a lot. The mid 80's saw shoulder belts instead of lap belts. Beware of the curved shifter if looking in the 80's range, it was indicative of a weak tranny, the T-176 (best tranny available at the time) has a straight shifter. <font color=blue> Shain</font color=blue> is right, also do a search on this topic.

Re: Neec CJ7 info

I hate to tell you but my 1980 has a factory 304. I believe that they also put some in 81's

Re: Neec CJ7 info

Actually 1980 was the year the 304 was dropped, so no 1981 jeeps came with them.

Re: Neec CJ7 info

I was wondering if anyone was gonna call me on that one. What I was actually thinking was: '79 was the last year for the 304 and T150 combo. Now, I even doubt that. This is a topic I shouldn't have even gotten involved in. There are toooooo many others here that actually know what they're talking about.

Re: Neec CJ7 info

Have a 79 CJ7 with 304 V8 and T-18 4 speed, I am not sure if it was factory original or a dealer option though. I still have the original window sticker with all of that info.

Wadda ya mean I can't drive it to Europe??
