Great Fun! — Great for just wanting to drive around (on and off road)! I wouldn't trade it for anything! The straight 6, 258 is a great engine! Also the 4sp transmission and the manual hand choke are added bonuses!

Pros: IT'S A JEEP!

Cons: J.E.E.P Just Empty Every Pocket

This Is My First Endeavor Into The Jeep World — Davis-Built Jeeps has taken charge to fixing up this Jeep for me. It is an 81 CJ7 with a Chevy 350 small block v8, T-18 transmission, fiberglass body, 4 inch skyjacker springs, 2 inch body lift, 9 inch Currie Custom rear with Detroit soft locker, stock Dana 30 front, hard top and doors, soft top and doors, bikini top, 33x12.5x15 tires, warn 8000lb winch.

Pros: Plenty of power, massive amounts of off road capability

Cons: chugs gas and shifts like a bear from time to time (the t-18 tranny prolly won't be around for long)

Expensive Loud Dirty And Really Great Entertainment But A Big Money Pit! — LOTS OF fun to play in! dependable steers great stops like crap throws alot of mud and excellent traction. NO STUPID RADIO!! SUCKS A BUNCH OF GAS. ONLY ONE SEAT IN THE THING LIMITED ROAD USE NO REAR SUSPENSION OR SHOCKS.

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

Pros: ability to IRRITATE off the neighbors

Cons: keeping it clean

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
