CALAMITY JANE : 1974 Jeep CJ5 Renegade – Jetset Blue Metallic

WAYALIFE 1974 Jeep CJ5 Renegade
When I think about Jeeps, an image of an old CJ is typically what comes to mind and if there’s been one Jeep that Cindy and I have owned and wished we had never sold, it’d be our old 1981 Jeep CJ7. While getting another CJ has always been on our old iron wish list, we had never really looked for one in earnest and when we came across this 1974 CJ5 Renegade up in Truckee, CA, we knew we had to buy it. Although it is an intermediate CJ and might be a bit harder to find parts for, it was pretty much bone stock and came complete with a 305 V8 under the hood, original Renegade factory aluminum wheels and Jeep/WARN 8074 winch! Needless to say, on August 16, 2016, we brought her home with us and named her, Calamity Jane.

    Hi Eddie and Cindi. Love all your jeeps. I have a 74 CJ5 I’m rebuilding and been going through all your videos. I have questions if you wouldn’t mind helping with. Like for example what body mounts you use? Would you share a build list?
    Even if you can’t, great work!
