And so it begins - I bought this Jeep.

Which online forum is the best in terms of size and user technical commentary?
I see there are several.

Obligatory "before" photo;


1976 CJ7 80k miles.
258 3 speed
Engine starts and runs, frame seem to be in good shape.
Body will meet Omix-Ada Corporation.

Paid $800
Winter project.
I plan on keeping it stock.

Pro’s
1.Has the most traffic = questions answered quickly
2.Easy to search and tons of the best info and builders

Con’s
1. Heavy population of smart ass’s

I've noticed that.
All it takes is a couple of assholes to ruin a discussion board.

Pirate sees itself as the been there done that crowd and has little patience for the"basic" questions. Wranglerforum, and jeepforum are the two I occasionally head to.

Just a heads up check your steering box mount.

Mine was basically stock and it had cracks all through it.

Most of pirate is a DIY forum and a relatively advanced one. Also it's not much of a restoration forum, it more of a keep the grill and hood forum so I would stick to something else for keeping it stock.

I hoped to imply that with the "been there done that" comment but understand the need to expand on the statement.

Just did. This one looks just fine.
The Jeep was not really beat, mostly on road use.

Yes true
If you go in the hardcore jeep section and start asking how to set you’re timing they get all weird … stick to non hardcore jeep section for stock basic stuff and its not bad
