Your not going to believe it. This guy drives 3+ hours down to my house to look at the Jeep today. After starting it up he listens and is bothered by an exhaust leak on the passenger side. I burn my hands tightening up some loose header bolts then he says "now the driver side is louder than the pass. side". We took nearly an hour trying to make it sound like a cadillac (mind you, this would be this guy's first Jeep so he clearly doesn't understand the Jeep thing yet). He takes it for a spin then comes back and says "it's built to the tilt. Think I'm going to pass. I'm considering building my own now".

WTF. Oh well, I've been pretty depressed about selling it this week anyhow (mad at the world type of depressed) so maybe this is a sign that I need to work evenings at McDonalds and hang onto the CJ. Pig Gig 2009 (when we return to Michigan maybe) here I come.

Good thing was he noticed a leak of brake fluid from the master cylinder. I checked it out and it's coming from the top resevoir rubber gasket so that's an easy fix before I go to get an inspection for Missouri plates.

If it is a CLEAN CJ I would hang on to it. I got rid of a clean 83 CJ7 about 10 years ago and when I woke up the next day I knew I had made a big mistake. I found a CJ5 and wreched on it for a few years, and kept thinking to my self "Man I wish I would have kept that super clean CJ7". So I still got the goddamn CJ5, and last year I finally found a super clean CJ7 again....and there is no way in hell I will ever get rid of this CJ7. Do your self a favor, get a second job working at Taco Bell, and keep the CJ7. here is the pic of the CJ5 Which I am trying to sell, and my CJ7 which I will never sell.



Which one would you sell?

It's a CJ, not a TJ. I guess I shouldn't complain. Yes it's true I have too much money wrapped up in this hobby, but so do all of you and at least my house is appreciating in value in St. Louis compared to the house we left in Michigan that has depreciated $75k in the last 5 months.

BTW, I've been pissy as hell all week thinking about selling my CJ. Now I've got a 12" boner. Yes, my wife has been referring to the Jeep as my mistress for years, but I had no idea it held all my mojo. Gonna get lucky tonight! :beerbang: :beerbang:

Think I forgot to mention that this guy was confused by the high pinion front axle and his buddy had to tell him that it was good to reduce driveline angle. Then he was disappointed that the STEEL 1350 lbs. trailer I was going to sell him for $1500 was not aluminum. BTW, he is a sandrail guy, not a Jeep guy so I think his expectations may have been a bit off.

Wow.....do not sell that CJ. especially to some sand rail guy, he will probably end up cutting it to pieces. Nice CJ. What lift and axles you running on that puppy

That thing is sweet! Don't sell it!

I think if I had to go out and buy a Jeep again.. I'd go for a CJ. I think fully modded CJ's look the best of any Jeep.

Don't sell it you'll regret it and not only for the reasons you think. You'll be mad at the world, it will affect your job performance eventually culminating in the loss of your job. As you already have noticed, it affects you're mojo and that will affect your wife. So now you unemployed, pissed as hell, can't have sex and that's not even the worst of it. Your wife'll get pissed as hell, not be having sex with you, and eventually leave. Then you'll be left with weekends and holidays, no sex except what you try solo but you'll need viagra for that but you'll be so pissed at pfizer that you'll refuse to take so still no sex, you'll end up working at McDonalds which would have solved the problem in the first place..... Only this time it won't be to save the CJ. You'll end up with french fry grease burned arms but maybe you'll get in to the management program....

damn this is like a country song....

What will really do you in tho, is the loss of those bitchin' piano hinged fenders which you'll be reminded of when you're drunk at the bar.

You funny.

BTW, I want to clear up some confusion by one of my earlier posts. I really don't have a 12" boner. It's 10" but I shaved me balls so it looks 12".

Oh, and I have waggy springs SOA with D60 axles.

Does anyone know why WRIF rocks in 2005?

I miss Drew and Mike. They should go syndicate so I can hear them in St. Louis.
