Alot Of Fun For The Right Person. — Has 3 inch body lift 6 inch suspension lift (sping over axle) sits on 31 inch off road tires. Use on offroad trails, camping and canoeing. It handles not bad on the highway but is much better in the bush.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It can go just about any where I care to take it.

Cons: Could use a little more horse power.

Not Your Common Vehicle. — I have owned this baby for 20 years now. It turned 30 in November of 2008. As far as I am concerned, it will be with me for the rest of my life. This is not a common vehicle, and it is not for common people.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It never quits.

Cons: It does not drive like a car. the center of gravity is about 10 inches higher than any passenger vehicle. You DO NOT corner abruptly.

79 Cj-7 — It's a 28 year old Jeep I bought very cheep and need a lot of work but I did most to all of the work myself. It was a rare jeep with the 258 inline six with a automatic transmission and full time 4X4 so the gas mileage wasn't the greatest but for something that old ok.

Pros: Small and agile

Cons: the heat didn't work

Great Jeep — I traded my 1964.5 Mustang for this 1979 Jeep CJ7 while I was in high school. My father purchased the Jeep and I was still working on the Mustang restoration when I made the trade deal with my Dad. This Jeep was so much fun. I had her on 3 wheels, 2 wheels, and 0 wheels (yes, airborne) many times while 4-wheeling. The Jeep inflicted much physical pain to my body while doing stupid stuff as a high school student who didnt know better. I learned a lot about life, pain, and repair bills with this Jeep.

Pros: Learned a lot about life in this little Jeep

Cons: Learned a lot about life in this little Jeep
