Project "Undo the shortcuts"

The Jeep: 1985 CJ7 - 258 I6 - T5 - Dana 300 - Dana 30 - AMC 20

The Story: We got this for free in bad condition a few years ago. Fixed it up as my first vehicle. We made a lot of shortcuts to cut it on the road for me. Here is that build: Original Build

The reason: My father is about to start treatment for his second bout with cancer. With help from my brothers I would like to fix this up for him, as thats what he has wanted to do ever since he got it.

The plan: Make it driveable without taking shortcuts this time. First step, body off frame!


After initial fix
