13 years but then it's hardly the same Jeep with the upgrades and rebuilds.

Same CJ-7 after 15 years and numerous mods and unmods.

Re: How long have you owned your Jeep?

My dad bought it fresh off the assembly line in '76 and I just stuck a new frame and body on it- along with lots of other little parts to get it in good shape again. While I'm pushing for mods, my dad is pushing to keep it mostly stock. So far we've managed to compromise well, and seeing as how the engine, tranny, xfer case, and both axles seem to be on there last legs I don't mind driving it for another year or two and then passing it back to my dad.
At any rate, yes this CJ is closing in on 25 years in the same family.

Re: How long have you owned your Jeep?

My Dad bought the '71 CJ5 slightly used in '73. Traded his '50 CJ3A on it!!!!
I got the '71 from him in '91, when his legs got too weak to get up in it.
Since I got it, added glass tub, new front clip. 2.5 lift, Conn-Fer shackles, lockright, saginaw steering, T18(6.32) tranny, and a host of other goods.

Re: How long have you owned your Jeep?

It seems like I am the original owner since very little is original anymore. It started as a 80 CJ-7 that I purchased in 87. The only thing original is the frame and T case. Just put a Wrangler tub in Pacific Blue on , installed a 4.0, t18,scout axles, and wrangler wiring, column w/ intermittant wipers. So in current condition I am the original owner.

Re: How long have you owned your Jeep?

There is a newspaper reporter here in Philly that has a 1946 CJ-2A restored to original condition. I think Brownbagg has a '46 CJ-2A, also.

There is a man who is a scoutmaster from a neighboring troop to ours who owns an original condition 1981 CJ-8 Scrambler.

I'm the original owner of my stock 1986 Cherokee XJ.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Bought mine used 10 years ago today. The day I bought it was also day I quit smoking.
