One evening in late spring I took my family for a ride in the jeepfan.com 78 CJ-5 which was recently re-assembled from a new Holley Truck Avenger carburetor and some exhaust work. Upon returning home there were 3 CJ’s parked in front of my house, Rich, Mark, and Mike. They were out for some pre-summer air and paid a visit, luckily I returned home in time to catch them.
The very first thing that caught my eye was a bright yellow CJ-5 Renegade. I grabbed the camera and had Mike bring the Jeep into my yard for a few pictures.
The Jeep is a 1974 CJ-5 Renegade that has been restored to near factory condition. The 304 under the hood is completely stock and is still mated to the T-15 3 speed transmission. The interior is still stock and only has a few add-ons like a tach and temperature gauge.
The original steel body was replaced with a Four Wheel Hardware fiberglass tub and fenders. The hood, grill, and windshield remain steel. A small SuperLift lift was added to replace the worn out leaf springs.
All this Jeep needs is a complete set of factory aluminum slots!
