I couldn't agree more. For me, it's worthless just sitting. I drive it as much as I can so long as it's not raining and there is no salt on the roads.

I've owned several jeeps - 86 CJ7, 83 CJ7 w/ Chevy 350+TH 350, Qty 2 CJ2A's, and an 82 CJ8 which I still have.

Just my opinion, but looking for a jeep and looking for a shop to work on it just doesn't make sense. If you own or want to own one of these vehicles, in my opinion, you should plan to work on it, or learn to work on it. Its just part of the deal, and part of the reason for owning them. They're old, dead simple vehicles.

I think you'll tire of paying someone else to do the work, and eventually tire of it.

Have you ever added bench seating? In the CJ8 for example?

No, but have been in one that had it. Years ago a buddy of mine had a wicked tricked out CJ2 built for him while he was overseas. We took it to Moab for the EJS and met a buddy if his from CA that had a back seat in his CJ8. The V6 in the CJ2 blew on the first trail and I spent the remainder of the week crammed into the back seat of the CJ8. Very uncomfortable.

I believe the CJ seat is nearly bolt in. You need the back seat out of a CJ7 and the brackets as well. I believe that CJ's had both fixed (earlier) and folding (later) rear seats. My CJ7 had a folding rear seat. My guess is that any YJ rear seat would work as well, but you can probably google that to verify.

Another way I've seen it done is to add two benches on each side of the bed. This is (was?) a common arrangement for the jeep tour companies in Sedona.

My own CJ8 (full hardtop - RARE!!!) spends its life in the barn and gets fired up in the winter a few times to skid some logs out of the woods.

Saw this on craigslist. Probably not really streetable, but the price actually sounds pretty good if it's in nice shape. The fabrication looks good (not a hill billy special). Bet there's a build thread on pirate4x4.com for it.

Getting close.

Anyone know the merits / limits of a regular registration vs historical tags? As I understand it, historical vehicles are exempt from inspection but should not be used on highways. Anything else?

Will this 85 CJ8 have to go one way or the other? This one has a modest lift; is that a problem registration wise? Preclude me from highways? I test drive it to 60mph and it felt fine but I don’t plan on much (if any) highway use for safety reasons.

You can drive it on the highway. You can't use it as a daily driver. A modest lift shouldn't be a problem.
