83 cj7
So I sold my 83 cj7 a couple months ago, because it just wasn't what I really wanted. Well I just recently picked up something much better. 1977 cj5 golden eagle, unverified but seems to be a 1 of 2,000 in California only Limited Edition version. Got I for a super screaming deal that I couldn't pass up. Yes, H code as well. But it has a 360 in it instead of the 304, a ford t18 in it, and the dana 20. Definitely needs love, but it'll get there. Yes, it's paint code 7E as well.

Going from a 7 to a 5 sounds like an adventurous decision. However, that 5 looks in great shape from the images. The drivetrain you mentioned is great. Tell us what axle gear ratio you got and plans.

Well I haven't checked the gears yet. I plan on wide trac width and 35s with 4.88 though. And my 7 was comp cut, and I couldn't find a decent enough solid tub to replace it with, or full widths and 37s to go with the comp cut so I sold it.

and the best winch ever made to boot great score
 
I didn’t know what “comp cut” was. Had to google it.
 
Got her home and moving along slowly. And she's started and ran for a couple tries. I put a 2150 carburetor on but need to get the timing right. Doesn't idle yet.

Your tub is in better shape than mine. You got a gem there. Did it not come with a roll bar…
