    Just bought this 1980 CJ5 last week. It's in pretty rough shape. Paid $2,900 for it. The previous owner had just sank the motor in a mud pit. In the first week it's gotten 3 oil changes, new transmission fluid, transfer case fluid, front and rear differential fluid, power steering fluid, brake fluid, and every other fluid you can come up with.... headlight fluid??? 😂

    It's gotten a new transmission mount, rear inner and outter axle seals and bearings, drum brake shoes and cylinders, a new brake line, and U-joints in both drive shafts.

    Sometime in the past a previous owner has put a body lift in along with some new leaf springs. The body lift isn't too bad and makes it easy to work on but the springs are causing some horrible drive shafts angles and I'm turn some of the worst vibration I've ever felt. On top of that it also needs a new clutch kit. Here are some pictures of it. Hopefully this thread will help some of yall out and in turn maybe yall can help me sometimes haha. Let me know if yall have any questions.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
