    I had a radiator that wouldn't cool in winter. It was clean as a pin on the outside, even looked to have been boiled out. I had gotten in in a pile of parts, so the history was unknown. Turns out...

    The casting numbers on the side of the block do not tell much, because of the lack of reliable record keeping from the factory. Military, industrial, civilian, truck, wagon, FC, and Jeepsters all...

    I'm a huge fan of your vision. I really like the way the intake and exhaust turned out. It puts me in mind of the MRAP Cougars were that we built in 2007-2009 were set up. The exhaust was run the...

    I would make every effort to use the front fenders you have. They won't be that difficult to bend back into shape, just some time and patience. The floor pans are pretty easy if you choose to remove...

    Welcome CaptB,

    That is a good looking CJ5 that you have. The body looks pretty good, sans the floor boards as you said. Not a huge deal at all. We look forward to seeing more on your project.

    Armadillo eggs are some of my favorites off the smoker. It depends on the jalapeños that you use, if you need the milk or not. It would be a fair bet that JB's might require the whole carton.
