Jeep 1978 Cj 7 on 2040-cars
Nolensville, Tennessee, United States
Below I tried to add my you tube links, but I cant seem to get them working. I hope you can cut and past it is worth to hear her run!!!
I bought this Jeep in 2011 just after it had a frame off restoration. The work was great and done by the owner's brother. However, he built her a no power no nonsense, 25" tired every day commuter. When I got it, I drove it for a year while I put together the cash to re-do what had been done. Below is a list of what work I have done to the Jeep to make it more of a Jeep than a yuppie day cruiser.
Pulled the inline 6 cyl and put in a Chevy 350 with about 310hp
Replaced all steering components.
Switched all brakes to slotted and drilled disk with chevy s10 calipers
New 8" brake booster and larger than spec master cylinder
Redesigned interior of the cab. Changed dash to custom with custom dials.
Put in a new transfer case and sticks, added a new sound system, custom roll bars. And a false rear floor for door storage.
New 35" tires
New rear and front with all new gears.
New paint job, less than a year ago.
The engine has been shined up and tricked out at a heavy cost.
New springs and shocks
New aluminum radiator and shroud
New custom welded front bumper with 10,000lb winch
Matching back bumpers
Custom security system
I know I am forgetting some things so I will wrap it up like this. 4 years he did a frame off on the jeep and put 2,800 miles on it. 1 and a half years ago I started my build.
Six months later I was done and now for the past almost two years, it has been my every day driver. I have put 10890 miles on it in that time. I have changed all fluids and rotated tires every 1000 miles. I detail (including the undercarriage) at least once a month.
I have a set of soft doors, a set of half steel and half soft doors. I have a whole shelf of extra parts that come with the purchase, like a starter extra can lights, and other misc. parts. There is also a brand new, never used soft top.
If you are funded and interested, please feel free to call me or come by to see her. I live south of Nashville and my phone number is 615-879-5872

The jig is up, the noose is out, we finally found it: the Renegade that Jeep has made, retrieved for a bounty.
Okay, enough of that. Meet the Renegade - Jeep's cute little compact crossover that makes its official debut here at the Geneva Motor Show. We recently brought you a massive Deep Dive into what makes the Renegade tick, and we're now getting our first live look at the tiny Jeep, live from its coming out party in Switzerland.
With the exception of associate editor Jonathon Ramsey, who doesn't know what he's talking about, we at Autoblog are kind of smitten with the little Jeep - it's a really unique package, featuring details that really make it kind of special (notice that jerry can pattern in the taillights, for example). Jeep will offer the Renegade with either a 1.4-liter turbo-four (from the Fiat 500L) or a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated four (from the Dodge Dart), with either a six-speed manual transmission or a nine-speed automatic. There will even be a Trailhawk version with four-wheel drive - properly trail-rated, to boot. The Renegade also features a nifty new My Sky removable roof panel system, giving this little cutie sort of a baby Wrangler feel.
As a brand within Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, SRT may have an uncertain future, but it's pumping out some seriously mean machines anyway. The supercharged Hellcat V8 may be gobbling up most of the headlines with its 707 horsepower, but even the Grand Cherokee SRT is getting some small updates for the 2015 model year.
Most importantly for many enthusiasts, the Grand Cherokee SRT is getting a slight power bump. Don't expect the 700+ hp from the Hellcat, but this SUV sees a modest 5-hp and 5-pound-feet of torque improvement to bring output to 475 hp and 470 lb-ft for its 6.4-liter V8 with an eight-speed automatic. The minor change doesn't change the sprint to 60 miles per hour, clocking in at the same 4.8 seconds, or the tow rating at 7,200 pounds. Still, more grunt is never a bad idea.
Another new addition is the Active Noise Canceling system as a standard feature for this powerful SUV. It adds four microphones around the vehicle and uses the stereo system to nullify extraneous sound. However, Jeep claims that the meaty exhaust note from the V8 still gets through into the cabin for driver enjoyment.
This nine-year-old girl might be better at rock crawling than some people twice her age. But is it worth putting her in danger to do it? According to her father on the Jeep Experience Facebook page, her name is Faith, and she has been offroading with her family since she was two. At nine years old, she's now driving her dad's Jeep over the rocks by herself.
As you can see she's belted in and under her father's direct supervision and guidance. She shows immense confidence for someone her age and follows her dad's instructions on exactly what to do. Although, this could still be a very dangerous situation if something went wrong.
Previously, we saw a similar video with a six-year-old on a motorcycle driving on public roads through the desert. Voters decided by only a six-point margin that the adult should be in trouble for letting the kid ride the bike. Here, we have a slightly older child driving a vehicle off road. Where do you fall in this case? Is it still wrong to hand over control to a child? Let us know in the poll below and scroll down to watch the video.
