Possible repalcement for rolled CJ5, questions
Okay as some have read I rolled my CJ5 and the frame is way to bent and most body panels are beyond usage. I started looking for a donor frame and tub to put my running gear into and found the following. I am going to look at it tonight.
1978 Jeep CJ7, rebuilt 258, T150, D20, 30f, 20r.
It was an East coast rig, so basically the body rusted off, so it was replaced with a fiberglass tub and fenders (that he said are perfect), full hardtop, metal half doors, all glass is great, runs great, no smoke, BUT thinks the frame needs to be replaced from rust. (I might have a line on a new frame though).
Hes want's $500.00 no more, no less, and said he can drive it to me.
Without looking at it, does this sound alright, I will basically be putting my running gear into it, and of course a lot of roll cage [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Are 7's the same as 5's from the front forwards, just a little longer in the back?
Thanks for any input.
