I've been looking for a CJ7 for about 2 months now. Most of what I've seen has been in pretty bad shape. I went and looked at one today with the following features:
T177(?) rebuilt 2 years ago.
Dana 300 (a little sticky coming out of 4 Lo)
New clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing
New wheel bearings up front
New starter (I think)
EZ Locker in rear(AMC 20 w/ 2 piece axles though)
33x12.5 with 15x10 chrome steel wheels
2 inch body lift
Frame is near perfect
Body is great in/out except some rust on one door at hinges and just a little bit on the floor board.
Hard top is in good condition
Chrome accessories/nerf bars
Now what it needs
That I know of)
Needs cowl seal
Needs valve cover gaskets
Needs clutch master cylinder or rebuild it.
Some bondo repair on the left between front fender and door.
I didn't get time to drive it today, but wanted to know your all's opinion. The guy is asking $4000 or best offer. Another thing I need to mention is that I need to get a vehicle pretty soon. I sold my daily driver and need something quick. I'm going to make an offer, but don't know what yet(?)
Thank in advance
