She's for sale. As much as I wanted the cj5/304 I need to seriously downsize my project list. And since I am considering a move to warmer climates, I can pick something up wherever I land.

Finally got most of my fuel issues straightened out. Fuel sender, pum, and rebuild of the carburetor (and subsequent issues with that) the old girl runs once again. Now, however, I still seem to be overheating and have a pretty bad skip throughout the throttle range. Tune-up is next. Although I may just forego using the plow this winter and just use the snowblower so I can tear into it and redo the top end. ... Looking into 4 core all aluminum or copper/brass radiators. ... Does anybody actually re-core radiators anymore?

I'm worse than Corey when it comes to taking pictures. I spent 3 whole days fixing the frame and wiring enough to be able to drive it to Greenville. Needless to say for those who were there, I have more than a few bugs to work out. ... More to come as I debug the old girl .

Okay so with the parade on Monday the cat is out of the bag. After selling my tj and paying off my electric bill I had enough money left over to get me a "new" jeep. A 1974 cj5 in decent shape with a 304 and a plow.
