Default "Black Foot" CJ-7

I bought this Jeep back in 08 at a Garage sale of all places ! My intent was to clean it up paint it up, fix the trans leak and sell it ! Well 4 years latter here’s what I have, and I couldn’t think of selling it now…

I did most of this CJ myself with help from friends and the cooperation and help from my Wife. Up to this point, I’ve never had a shop do any work for me, but this time I have to Thank Jared and his Guy’s at Unlimited Offroad Centers, in Fenton, who took care of the Dana 44 axles and steering, Thanks Guy’s!

I’m going to follow Itchy’s lead and skip writing a novel, so here are some details and a bunch of pic’s (mostly in build order)…

Looks Great! You should take it back by the garage sale house and show the previous owner how it turned out.

Thanks. The rocker knockers are bolted to the side and underneath they are mounted in between the center body mount and body. I had to trim the body mounts down for them to fit in place. The tires are 36x14.5x15 Swamper radials.

WTF? The only crap I find at garage sales are baby clothes and fake China.....
Turned out real nice. Love the satin black.
What did you use to flip your u-bolts? That cleans up a spring under real nice.

Thanks Itchy ! I see your 5er is look'n good too! Did you notice the seats ? They are the ones I got from you ! The rear flip set up is from a Chevy pick-up from the junk yard, and the front's are from Dynatrac for a Wagoneer

http://www.dynatrac.com/products/par...uboltkits.html

I just bought them but I'm sure someone with your mad skill's could fab them up easily.

That's funny you say that because I did just that a few days ago, and he couldn't believe it was the same Jeep! He asked me to bring him a photo so he could show his daughter.

Yeah I figured they were the Dyna Trac kit. Those are nice. if I end up switching back to the spring under I will run those as well.
