    Renegade CJ

    So, I think most everyone either knows or has figured out I sold the EOR buggy. I thought I was going to buy a rzr initially but Shannon didn't like them. So, I decided to build a CJ.

    I ended up finding a pretty good deal on a rig already put together with basically the exact parts list I envisioned this week so the process is going to be much faster. I will have a rig at Oscar now rather than the Barbie Jeep or a rzr.

    Current specs:
    86 CJ-7
    5.3/4L60e/Dana 300
    60 front 5:38's and an ARB
    14 bolt rear 5:38's and a yukon grizzly
    ORI struts
    4-link rear
    3-link front
    AGR box and ram assist steering
    40" MTR's

    Plans are to go through the axles. Probably put a set of Yukon shafts in the front while its apart as it currently has outters only. Tie the cage in properly. Change around some of the suspension so it can be lowered a bit. Sell the MTR's and put a set of reds and beadlocks on it. Swap the oil pan and build a nice skid plate for engine and trans.

    Basically it's a very good starting point but the attention to detail is lacking.

    Yeah the specs sound good. What’s the wheelbase? Keeping hydro assist is a good idea.

    I saw the ORI in the tire sale pic and knew it was going to be something good.

    Did you run the VIN to see what model it was? Looks like a Laredo dash in the pic you sent me or perhaps a highly optioned Renegade.

    I didn't but it will have this tub on it after April. Plus, my first CJ was a Renegade and it just sounds cooler.

    I really don't know anything about scouts. Other than it's a half cab something.
