new guy here from Tennessee. I'm the proud owner of a 1950 CJ-3A originally owned by country music singer Eddie Arnold. I've owned this jeep for close to 10 years, and I'm about to start restoring and beefing it up for some off road use. I'm wanting to keep the body pretty close to stock, but I'm wanting it to be stronger, more powerful, and more capable off road. I joined the forum mostly to get some ideas about what other people are doing.

That's cool, did you get it from Eddie Arnold himself or were there other owners before you?

I would personally restore it to original but that's just how I prefer em. There's lots of options for more power. Just depends on how much modification you want to do. Some people go with the F head 4 cyl or there's many of em out there with V6s or V8s.
