Loads Of Fun — You can go anywhere in this CJ and looks great with its new paint job! It's have a super strong 304 8 cylinder dual carb engine with a 3-speed. Also has new seats, gauges, lights, repainted bumpers, replaced fender flares and new bedliner.

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

Pros: Ageless and fun!  You can go anywhere in this CJ and looks great with its new paint job!

Cons: Not practical at times

Its One Of The Best Toys To Have — the acceleration is pretty fast, its got a built straight 6, its lifted 9in and has 40in boggers. its not really built for the road but its awsome to drive in the mud. the axels r stock so we have to work on them sometimes but they hold up pretty good.

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

Pros: its big and fun to drive

Cons: the handaling is not the best

Fun Little Vehicle — I have a 1980 Jeep CJ-5 which is definately not one of the nicest CJs in the world, but its a fun little Jeep that is very fun to play around with. Its all stock, pretty rusty but very trusty. I have a snowplow for it, and i love plowing snow in the winter. And when the snows gone and the rain comes I love to find the nearest mud hole and play around in it. Its a ton of fun and i will probably drive this Jeep till the wheels fall off!

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

Pros: Lots of fun and very realiable!

Cons: Nothing at all

Good — Performance is pretty good. well for repairs we just had to get new tires we got it from a guy who had it made for a racing jeep he got a fiberglass tub put on and we had to fix the back seat. very good appearance. gas mileage is bad and good maintenance is good.. yes fun to go mud bogging.

Cj5 By Christopher

Whats to be said? It was a fiberglass CJ5 with a small block out of a wrecked 85 Corvette. It had the potential to wheelie-over backward because the departure angle would let it. Had to get rid of it ... Read More

Totally Impractical But A Blast To Drive. By Miltsgarage

It takes significant upper body strength to manipulate the manual steering with 33" tires. The short wheel base makes it extremely bouncy and a bit twitchy at speeds over 60 mph. The dual exhaust is... Read More
