  • Vehicle Overview

    1986 CJ7 that my father and I built together 23 years ago in our garage. I was lucky enough to inherit this from him before my parents moved out of state. But this is the project that really sparked my interest in vehicles and the off-road world. As it sits right now, it's a Small Block Chevy with a TH350 transmission and a Dana 300 transfer case. Stock front axle, and a Dana 44 in the rear out of an International Scout. 2.5" suspension lift, with a 2.5" body lift, running on 33x12.50x15 Goodyear Wrangler MT/R tires right now. Honestly, nothing fancy, but she runs good and gets the job done for what she is!
