    Hi from where the jeep was born

    I owned a mail jeep when I was a kid and loved it .So I took a leap last month and acquired a 73 CJ5.
    My plans for it are modest, but I have been there before and things quickly change 🙄 and I am already looking at a 2.5 spring lift and I haven't even replaced all the wheel cylinders and brake lines yet. I am sure after I order a 2.5" spring set I will want a 4".

    Ohhhh what have I done 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Know a guy that took an old school mail jeep, The one with the sliding doors and dropped a .040 over 350 Chevy in with a two speed power glide. That jeep was ALOT of fun to drive!!

    I am redoing the brakes right now.
    Master and wheels new ss lines to replace the rotted ones.
    And a new exhaust manifold because the original was broken
