1978 Jeep CJ7 Review

Custom Cj7 Offroader — This was a beast. 4 in lift, 4.3L chevy V6, turbo 400 trans with mega shifter, dana 20 transfer, scout dana 44s front and rear. 4 point seat belts, fiberglass body, 33" tires. I bought this one partly together and fixed all the little things. This was only time I got to take her offroad. No lockers but a very stout machine. I had to sell her to buy the 2007, so I didn't get to play that much. When to a good home though. A real Frankenstein of a jeep but the only thing I would of changed was going with fuel injection instead of a carb. horrible hill climber though, stalled on me every time. I was considering propane conversion, when I sold it. Still may build another one for offroad only and try a alternative fuel.

Pros: The power and stoutness

Cons: Carb not a good option for offroad

If you are looking for a commuter car, this isn't it. I get 15MPG city & HWY. On road manners are borderline treacherous. Don't buy this car for your 16 year old daughter to drive to school. Old J... Read More
