Summary:

A mean machine with a 4x4 dream

Faults:

The carbuerator was just replaced.

It now has a Holley 600 4 barrell.

The coil has been replaced and the engine recently tuned.

The C.V. joint has been out since I have had the Jeep (3 months).

The seats are worn.

There is no A/C or cruise control.

General Comments:

The Jeep was recently purchased for the cheap price of $500.00.

It is in decent shape.

It has full time 4x4.

Gas is as bad as it gets.

It is a very comfortable ride with lots of power and can turn on a dime.

It is very spacious for camping.

Summary:

It is the greatest ride ever built!!

Faults:

Well I bought it and it needed a new carburator so I put one in, then the heater core went out and now I'm replacing carpet.

Then spark plugs and wires needed replacing and now it needs a new headlight.

Door panels are in bad condition, but hey, it is very old...

Front window is kind of foggy, A/c doesn't work and the vents were all taken out anyways.

Cruise control doesn't work..

Windows you have to push up and down.

General Comments:

It is very powerful and can turn on a silver dollar, seats are very comfortable, I love it.
