Just curious, who all out there owns a Jeep? I know Jeep owners are a pretty close knit family, just wondering if any of my fellow brothers were on this board. I currently own a 98 TJ Sport, 6 cyl. 5-speed. Am looking for a CJ-5, CJ-7. Have owned Levi edition CJ, and a Quadra-trac Wagoneer. What do you have? [8D]

I bought a 2001 Jeep Cherokee sport in October, I love it. They only regret was not getting one sooner. When we got almost 2 feet of snow this winter I was glad I had it. I dont know how I ever survived with out the 4X4. Six

I have a 1985 CJ7 and could probably sink another 20 grand into it before I was satisfied. But then again, I still wouldn't be satisfied. Jeep=Just Empty Every Pocket

I got a 1987 Jeep Cherokee Utility with a stock D44 in the rear. So far I've lifted it 2 inches, upgraded the stereo, installed a CB, and hard mounted a Garmin GPS III+. Oh, and I lined the floor with bedliner.

I've got a 1963 Willys CJ5 "kit" in the garage no engine right now. It has 12 forward gears (a three speed split twice) and 4 reverses! :-) It has 5.88 third members. I also have 1978 J10 pickup in the yard, no transmission. They've all been sitting for about 2 years. That's my investment in precious metals! TF [^]

Cherokee Sport, '99 . . . my winter car. Yeah, I'd buy another in a heartbeat. Got a friend who's a certified, card-carrying Jeep fiend: he's got three CJ7's. In the winter he puts the top on. Sometimes.

Had 3 Heeps, last one put the nail in the Jeep/Chrysler coffin. It leaked EVERY fluid it had(and one it didn't (rain)) spent more money on floor-dry than gas. That and every one became a rusted POS in no time. Seen the new jeep Cherokee-the cheaper, boxy version-it seems almost like an import with small lightweight doors and cheap plastic interior. I dont have any experience with the grand cherokee-it looks like a halfway decent vehicle.

Had an '83 CJ-7. Must have been some sort of lemon as it had 3 rearends under it in 35,000 miles. Transfer case gave it up at 50,000 with very little 4x4 use. Girls loved it though, the only vehicle I've owned where they would run and jump in at a stop light. Used to put it in lo on the beach and jump out and jog beside it as it crawled along. Windshield folding flat was cool too.

Even has the "rare" Levi package. Orig paint in good shape too, after numerour Rubicon trips and other crazy adventures. It is now in semi-retirement and sees duty as a desert machine (gets there on a tow bar) and around the ranch - my version of a quad. I bought this thing in the early 80's , sold it to buy my first house, then bought it back again a few years back, and now its part of the family forever.

There aren't any legit local places. This past weekend was a huge offroad event in Gore Virginia. About 2 hours away. West of Winchester. Some of the best trails on the East coat, like Tellico. The closes place is Peters Mill which is out near Shenandoah. Out 66 and about 10 miles down 81. If you want more info, just msg me and I can give you exact directions. I'll probably take my jeep to the shoot on the 21st.

I own an 88 Jeep Commanche. The engine is a 4.0 straight 6. Great Engine. The transmission sucks. I am on the second one. The blinker switch is worn out and so is the ignition. The clear coat has peeled and it looks like crap. The only reason I keep it is because it is payed off. I would never buy another Jeep or any Chrysler product.

I keep noticing this.. how come everyone with a ZJ has a 97 like mine? Did they just make a whole bunch more of them that year or what? Also, anyone know of a good doal exhaust system for one of these with the 5.2? I prefer dual to single pipe designs but can't seem to find on. It may be that the underside just doesn't have room for one, but it's worth some more looking.

Yeah, I have a 79 cj7 that about 4 years ago started a total ground up resto. on. It took me 2 years to complete. EVERY nut and bolt came off it. EVERY bearing, EVERY seal, the real deal. I didnt go nuts with a huge lift though. Went 4 inches over stock. It is a 304 rebuilt about 70000 ago, with a TH400 auto tranny built strong, quadratrac, AMC rear with one piece axles. I built a custom stainless dash with auto meter guages in it. ( I SWEAR I WILL NEVER WORK WITH STAINLESS AGAIN!) etc,,, I still could use seats because as it was just being finished, I got divorced and never had the $ to get them. I am more tied to my Jeep than anything else I own. Probably will end up homeless and unemployed living out of it, before I think of selling it. Dont get me started talking Jeeps, my wife will never get me off this damn computer. Brian

I have a 80 cj5, rusted to be damned. Original 4 banger, has had a few carbourators put on it. The seats are covered with an old shelter half that I trimmed and tied to the seat pads with some light rope. has a low low 4x4 and hi low 4x4 and standard 4 speed shift. My son originally had painted it a light color, with brown splotches. Kinda looked like a holstein cow. Actually it only has about 17 and a half thousand miles on it. They used to drive it out to asseteague (spelling) island off the Va coast and chase the ponies with it. Stayed parked a goodly number of years til I got ahold of it and got it running. Runs like a striped assed ape now. It's fun. Got to be the butt ugliest jeep in the state of Az, but it's mine and I love it. Kelly
