Got a sweet deal on 2 cj-5\'s

I was shopping in the local junkyard, and found a cj5 complete and a cj5 frame set up as a buggy with the entire drive line and a steel plate with a seat mounted on it. One has a 6 cyl and the other a 4 cyl.. I only paid 100$ for them. I am still not sure of what all I have but it looks good.

97 TJ 31's and mostly stock but seeing what I can do about that..

I need a deal like that so I can have a nice trail rig, even if you don't use them you can part them out for big $$.

Re: Got a sweet deal on 2 cj-5\'s

It is against the rules to get on and brag about cheap Jeeps and not post pictures. At any rate it sounds like you got a bargain. I suppose you blackmailed or used some other form of subterfuge to get the salvage yard to sell at that kind of price. I can't even get the local salvage yard to sell me an axle for that kind of cash. Green, green with envy. My wife wouldn't let me keep them anyway, but I am still envious.
