    CJ-5 Tough Truck Project.


    Members do not see advertisements
    I've been wanting to build a CJ-5 tough truck since a friend mentioned he was thinking of building one. Since he no longer does tough trucks I figures I'd give it a try if I ever find a CJ-5. A couple weeks ago I picked this baby up for $500 and also got a 8000lb winch with it for $250 that's worth $520. A very lucky find. I'm looking forward to the 2014 season!

    I always jump on something I need as soon as I can. Especially when it comes to Jeeps. lol. I might even pick up another CJ-5 here soon for spare parts because it has headers with the exhaust that comes out under the driver and a fiberglass body. Who knows maybe the axles are geared different from what I have right now and even if they aren't I could buy the ring and pinions to make it different that way if I have a smaller or larger event coming up I can just swap out the axles for a better gearing.

    Here's a little CJ-5 update. I got some fenders, painted and mounted them. I also ordered a pair of headers and working on getting the exhaust manifolds off spraying them down with some Gibbs to hopefully avoid any troubles.

    My first event with the CJ-5 will be at the Harrisburg Farmshow Complex if anyone nearby wants to come and watch.
