    Default Bought a 1980 CJ 7 Jeep yesterday

    Bought a 1980 CJ 7 Jeep yesterday! Had been looking for while and tossed the idea back and forth and then realized I wanted to get into a new hobby and try something else. I have driven the Jeep Wranglers but never an older model so I look forward to it. Has new 33's on new black wheels. Of course a manual tranny with granny low. It's RED! I am presently looking to sell the hardtop and doors as I just plan on driving it in spring/summer with just a bikini top, which it came with. It also came with a lot of new parts.

    Husband has been into Jeeps since I met him and has owned a ton of them, presently owning a 1981 CJ5.

    Will post pic when I get a chance.

    Cool

    Good for you Chris...

    I loved JEEPIN...

    After my 3rd Back Surgery and my next injury that Medically Retired me I had to give up Wheelin...

    It was one of the saddest days of my life as we really loved going out in the JEEP and Trail Riding...

    I ended up selling my last JEEP as it was way to built to be a regular street driver...

    One day maybe I'll be able to get a tamer one to drive in the nice weather...

    I've had a few, we still have the Grand Cherokee, I had a few CJ's, last one was a 1983... My last one was a 1999 TJ, I built that one, 6" lift, 35's, ARB in the front, Detroit Locker in the rear, two onboard air systems as well as an onboard welder... I miss that TJ...

    Enjoy yours and Happy JEEPIN!!!

    Ok HOPEFULLY I will post some pics tomorrow. I did wash it on Christmas day BUT I have been waiting to get the hardtop and doors off before I took a pic. I HATE hardtops, well, tops period so the top and doors are for sale, and of course I have to get the backseat out and scrap it!

    Gabe has had a TON of Jeeps, and he likes the CJ 5's the best and then the 7's. This is really strange for me and David, I don't plan on doing THAT in my Jeep, lol!

    Well, first off to sell the top and doors so I have some MONEY!!!! Then I would like to get a full roll cage extension,some good harnesses and a winch. I have a bikini top for it and I got a lot of cool accessories too when I bought it.

    Husband currently has a 1981 CJ 5. So we are going to take the Jeeps out this coming year and see what happens!

    This one is his:

    I'm in the middle of sanding my hardtop and masking it to spray so that I can sell it. Maybe tomorrow I can get some pics!
