    Sure, you CAN do anything and it has been done but there are quite a few differences and it depends on the years also. Don't quote me on this but I believe a '54-'71 CJ5 has a 1" longer wheelbase...

    I was unaware that you couldn't get these parts because I made my own "spring poppets". In my case they were just a ball bearing and a spring. In the US, places like Mcmaster carr have pretty much...

    Nice looking jeep Amy!
    I'd dig in and check all those wheel cylinders. You'll have to bleed anyway and they're pretty cheap so if there is any question it's worth replacing them. You'll probably...

    Hi Dave,
    If you are going to work on the brakes, I'd suggest upgrading to the 11"x2" Wagoneer style; well, unless you want to go all out and convert it to disc. The Wagoneer brakes offer quite a...

    Nice! I really envy all of you that live in relatively rust-free climates. Not that I'd like to live in them; to hot for me....but the winters and road salt up here absolutely destroy stuff.
