...but definitely back in the family.

I only lasted a year before the bug bit again. :)Picked this up yesterday:




1963 CJ5
Odd-fire buick V6
3-speed (I'm assuming t90, but haven't verified)
D18
Closed knuckle D25/27
Dana 44 rear (again haven't verified, but that's what was stock)
Ross steering delete - I think its a Saginaw box, but haven't verified)
worn out 31's
M38a1 hood
Very functional tow bar
goofy but comfy forklift seats
Body is a bit rusty, but not too bad, and I love the Patina...gonna matte clear coat it to preserve it. Need some tips on that.

I'll eventually find my way over to EarlyCJ5.com, but I thought I'd introduce it over here.

Oops, mods I meant to put this in the "other vehicles" section. Please move if so inclined.

Saginaw box, I think?


Cutlass hubs. Operation from 2 to 4 and back is butter smooth. I have read that they weren't as popular as Warn, but that they're pretty stout for normal use.

Saginaw box but the mount is kind of gnarly. I'm sure you will redo the mount when you get into the project.

Haha, yeah the rest of the install is pretty clean through the frame rail, but the angle iron upper mount is a bit "hodge-podge". Looks plenty strong for street and mild-wheeling, just rough, and probably not up to the task of big tires or big trails.
