Replaced body with fiberglass.

Replaced wheels/tires.

Replaced transmission with 350 turbo.

Replaced axles with Dana 44s, and lock rights in front and rear.

General Comments:

There is absolutely nothing like a CJ! Any Jeep with EFI is just not the real thing! I don't own a top for my Jeep, so it is purely a summer fair weather ride. The comfort factor is a complete non-issue for me, as the ruggedness of the CJ7 is a direct result of it's tank like ride. Show me any other vehicle this fun for $10,000. I can go anywhere, and when in 4WD on pavement I can out run almost all sports cars for the first 1/8th mile!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
