Re: 1976 CJ5 Project

Day before yesterday, I got the emblems put back on and got a 12v/usb outlet put in the dash along with a mount for my phone/nav device. Yesterday I pulled the lift shackles off the front and put new stock shackles back on. Then pulled whatever heavy duty springs they had in the back and installed some Crown standard duty rear leaves. I may replace the front leaves in the near future with new just because.

1976 CJ5 Project

Since the previous owners hacked up the stock radio spot I decided to just shove one of my commercial Motorolas in there. Need to get a trim ring made up for it.

Re: 1976 CJ5 Project

Ammo can center console in the CJ to replace the cheaply made low buck thing that was in there before. The old one locked but was made out of particle board and vinyl so would have been easy to break into, and the previous owners were fishers I guess cause it was full of old lures and used hooks. It was also too low to work as an arm rest. Still on the fence on if I should paint it or leave it. Pretty sure I'm going to upholster at least part of the lid and add a basic cupholder or set of cupholders.





Pretty sure this was the old unit that was in there but in vinyl instead of denim.

Pretty much just been driving it and enjoying it. Little stuff here and there. Trying to get miles on it to build trust in it to take it up to Oklahoma and Arkansas for camping trips.

This is indeed a successful build. It seems like these kids are happy going being the passenger of this classic jeep.
