Picked up this one for $300, came with a plow, pto winch, and full steel cab. Runs and drives, but needs a lot of work. Pulling the tub tomorow and am going to pretty much restore it! Comments? Opinions? Fried dough?uploadfromtaptalk1435445765501.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1435445808733.jpg

Straight six?  Can't beat the old Jeeps.  I had a 58 Willy's years ago, and a 70ish CJ5 but the body was literally falling off the frame.  I found a CJ7 body, so did a rebuild as a 7.

Nope....straight 4. It is a Jeep F-134 Hurricane motor, with a 3 speed stick, twin stick transfer case for the PTO winch, and 4 hi/lo.

The tub is gone to you know where, might need the side of a box truck to fix all the holes! Rear spring mounts are broke in usual spots for these, which isn't a problem! Can't wait to wheel it and push some snow!

Sure will! My neighbor is currently building a 92' Wrangler, and has a 98' Cherokee for parts (Motor, Trans, and Axles) and said if I helped him pull the motor, I could have everything else off the parts one! List of stuff coming off of that is the following: Seats, Gas Tank, Radio, Speakers, Leaf Springs, Shocks, Window Motors, Floorboards, Various Body Panels, and the Front and Rear Bumpers!

Other than the tub the rest of the truck looks pretty decent. Lots of good parts. Hope the frame is solid.  My brother inlaw put a volkswagen diesel into a vintage jeep. I recall it had a pto at rear of tub.

As a matter of fact I do! The only thing left of the CJ is the plow setup. Traded the rest minus a few parts for a bunch of Sinplicity attatchments. Oh and spent a grand on this ..1968 Jeepster, it has 38.5 Super Swamper Irok's on 15x12 beadlock rims, front and rear lockers, a 3 speed stick, and a 2/4 hi/lo transfer case.


Aaaaaaand a 400 hp V-6!
Upgrades to motor listed below....total in its lifetime it has had about 10 grand done to it! It is a Dauntless 225 V-6, built by buick for Jeep, then Jeep bought it out.

Fully rebuilt,
bored .30 over,
Summit racing pistons & con rods
Buick 231 crank conversion & bearings
Aftermarket high-comp rings
Clifford Performance (6=8) heads
All new gaskets
Isky cams
Isky Hydraulic lifters
E3 plugs
Ford Racing plug wires
HEI distributor
2 brl Offenhauser intake
Offenhauser spacer block
4 brl Edelbrock 750 cfm Carb
Summit racing water pump
Summit racing alternator
Summit racing starter
K & N filter(s)!
Machined oil sumps
6=8 high-flow headers (2") w/ 5" tips out sides under cab!


Future plans are to add a FULL rollcage to the engine area, cab, and two down the back of the bed. Also going to install an onboard air and power system, put on a 12,000 pound Rough country winch, some bilstien shocks, leaf springs from F-250, and new lift brackets! Lift will be about 14 inches and paired with the tires and spring over conversion i'm doing on the axles, a new pitman arm will be in order, if not fully hydraulic steering!

Wow sounds like a real mud bogger.  My first Jeep was a 65 CJ5, pretty stock except for the GM power steering setup and a stock SBC.  Had to get rid of it once kids came into the equation, but now the last one has graduated and soon I'll be back into a CJ5.  This one should have better daily drivability and more heat than the 65.

They're cool trucks, but be careful of that short wheelbase.They will lay down if you give them a chance, but they'll go places a pack mule won't.
