$9.00 vanilla malt
Purchased this 7 about 20 years ago while working in Houston. It’s originally a dark brown but had an Earl Schieb paint job in red with no body prep before I bought it. The paint in the body lines is popped and will flake in small pieces if you put a thumb nail under it. I Had already put a 1986 CJ-7 D44 in the rear, upgraded to 4.10 gears with a mechanical locker after buying it. It has always been some what reliable Jeep but early in the summer of 2019 around 177k it developed a loud lower end knock. After side lining it, we decided this past winter to go with an LS swap. We are currently have this being done local by a builder who does everything and you get the turn key completed vehicle, so I probably won’t be able to answer too many questions. the motor is currently at the performance shop getting tanked & Magnafluxed and new cam bearings & the like installed. We are staying with stock parts and stock hp. With wanting reliability being the main goal for long term driving, that seemed the best for us. I will add pics as we go, but hopefully in the next 6 weeks should have the Jeep.
