Buddy RJ got a 1974 CJ5 this weekend...got some work to do. First we have to diagnose and fix a sticky throttle. Then we are going to dive into the electrical and get that straightened up....that is where the biggest problems with it lies. But I got lots of pics and thought I would share.
And here she is
lot of work to do here
oh yeah some 33s....
really rust is minimal
I wish I had this deck
After we tackle the throttle issue we are going to jump into electrical
CJ5's are seweeeet. It looks real nice from the outside for a 74.
it is in a relatively good shape. The pics of the floor plan is seriously the worst (and all) of the rust. Besides the sticky throttle and the electrical problems it has it is in pretty good shape. Think the electrical is where most the problems lies. Something drains the battery when it is parked, blinkers dont work, high beams dont work, only guage that works is Oil Pressure, air/heat, radio (no speakers anyways) and really that is it. Possibly a leaky radiator, but keeping an eye on it. We get the electrical sorted out and we will be in business. Might be willing just to rip the harness out and "start from scratch" with it.
