I bought my Jeep with a blown engine and no tires.

I Just finished building it after a long total rebuild. It's an '85 CJ7 with a 383 stroker, 700R4 transmission, Dana 300 twin sticked, Detroit locker out back in a 9" Ford differential, and an ARB Air locker in the front Dana 44. It also has 4.56 gears at both ends.

The body is mostly fiberglass except for the hood and windshield frame. It has a Custom Aqualu Dash and an on-board air system powered by a York 210 compressor.

The front and rear bumpers are air tanks. The axles are by Moser, drive shafts by Tom Woods, steering By AGR, Borgeson and a Grant steering wheel...

The list goes on.

Larry's Comment: Nice work, Glenn.

You have a beauty of a Jeep in that '85 CJ7.

Nice work

You did a nice job on this Jeep. What did you do as far as the suspension? I have an '84 CJ7 Renegade that I am restoring and I like the looks of the suspension on your Jeep.
Thanks for any info.

Hey there...
The Suspension on my Jeep is a 4" spring lift on all four corners, I bought the spring kit from, it included the 4 springs, a set of shocks and a drop pitman arm. Good luck with your build. Check out more of my Jeep Build and Fun on YouTube, mudnut59.
