Sweet! They are a blast!
Now, don't try to get away! I am more muscular, more cunning, faster, and larger than you are, and I am a genius. Why you could hardly pass the entrance examinations to kindergarten.

I really enjoy Coyote hunting. It's very exciting calling in a wild animal. I also try to practice with my .45's as much as I can. I am a member of the NRA and the CRPA.

You'll have a lot of fun with that! I had a 1978 Jeep CJ-5 and we had a blast with it. What size engine does your Jeep have in it? Mine had the V-8, 3 spd, which is one of the reasons I sold it. (Rotten gas mileage). Have Fun!!

I'm on my 4th CJ/TJ jeep. I started with a '76 CJ5 like yours also-with the 258 six, 4 speed tranny. It lasted till I needed something larger and moved to an '82 CJ7, same engine with an automatic. You'll love those old CJ's. There's still tons of accessories for them on the market. I doubt they'll ever go away. Take care of her-she'll take care of you. :)

I had a 1969 CJ5, 283, 4-speed and 5.38 gears wasn't too fast but would climb a tree. I liked it a lot but went a little bigger with a 1970 Ford Bronco.

Cool Jeep! I've spent a minute or two around them. Just got back the one I learned to drive in, grandpa's '53 M38A1 (military CJ-5).Robert, sell the 94. I have a '71 CJ-6 ( 6 not a typo) for sale since I got the '53.
