Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

: I just brought home my grandfathers '47 CJ2A. It has 24,700 miles and is all orginal. It sat in the barn for the last 30 years. Where do I start restoring it? I hate to tear it all the way down first. Should I start with the body, engine, wiring, suspension? I love it, but looking at it I am over whelmed.

: Thanks,

: Kurt

Where does one start?
First get the engine running, you know carb,fuel pump, new fuel, check the tank for leaks, timing, new oil[30wt.] check all the fluid levels, brakes, be sure it stops before hitting the barn.Then go from there.
