Thanks Yeah this is a cool site. I should correct myself the last CJ was a CJ10. Little know fact.
 
Shrewsbury, Ma. named for the Earl of Shrewsbury. A little known fact, the Earl was credited with the invention of the sandwich. put that in your totaly useless information file.
:ww:from the republic of Texas.
Good looking machine, or at least it was before you took it apart.:cool:

Paint a big 5 pointed star of the hood, love that military look.
 
I did think of that. On my 05 Rubicon I painted the headlight bezels black and added head light guards. There is no chome on my Rubicon. And I'm thinking of taking all the crome off the CJ7 too. See when people hear you have a Rubicon the say wannabe. Guy just picked it up blah blah blah. but I'm a true Jeep guy to the core.

The cons are bad *** to be sure, too bad most are wasted on the wanna be's.

Well then I'm a Jeep guy . LOL I had to rebuild my 71 CJ5 (Dauntless Buick 225 V6 )
and I replaced the tub on the CJ7 last time. Now it's the frame. allmost done.
 
Well I rolled the rolling frame out of the garage tonight Winched it into the back yard with my Rubicon. Where the bodytube sits up on cement blocks.
I hope to have some pictures.
 
The YJ tube is on the new CJ7 frame. 6 of the body mounts are now in.
