    Been bugging my buddy for decades to sell it to me. Got him at a weak moment. 1980, straight, no rot. Another rabbit hole. It's shooting related because I'm gonna put a center rifle rack in it. Mike

    Mike,
    Your buddy sold you a lemon. I’ve never seen tires with smooth brown tread on them . On a serious note, nice buy, I love those jeeps.

    But, they are so comfortable. Easy to enter and exit. Plus they have a fantastic turning radius. Plus, the older ones are so stable on the road.

    Nothing better than old jeeps, black rifles and dead coyotes.

    He really took advantage of you for sure.
    Someone stole the roof, the doors, those oversize exhaust pipes are at a weird angle and I'll bet the A/C doesn't work either.

    Nice score !
    It's crazy how the hunting tv shows make everyone believe you must have a $16,000 polaris buggy to be a successful hunter when you can get something like your Jeep, that is street legal so you don't have to tow it, much quieter, much cheaper, etc., etc.
    I rebuilt a 1998 4runner I got for $1,200 at a lien sale and that thing gets me up some 4x4 roads that are pretty rough.

    OH Yeah --good for you. Sold my last CJ5 in the 80s-it was a 66-- always wanted and still want one since. Have a great time with it.

    I had a 60's V6. I'm glad it's gone and don't miss it. The only vehicle I ever doubled my money on.

    I'll be the odd man out and say it doesn't "have" to be a money pit.

    There's keeping up with the Jones's and then there's keeping up with it's intended mission as a varmint chaser. Stay on top of maintenance and spend monies for gas,food,and guns/ammo.

    Nice rig,thanks for the pics. Keep'm coming.

    I have had at least one JEEP in the fold, since the first one back in 1952. Have had the pick up, flat fender's and the present one a Cherokee, with does everything I want, along with plowing the snow in winter. One I wish I still had was a 42 Willys flat fender all tricked out and powered by v-6 buick.
