So, I became a Jeep fan years and years ago, and fell in love with the CJ-6's. Maybe because the rarer the truck, the more I want one. [aahh] So after a 3 year search I found one, brought it back to Langley, and now, I don't know what to do with it.

It definatly needs work before I can even drive it. I'm thinking of turning it into a pavement princess, just because of how rare this thing is.

But the desire to wheel is there. Lift, maybe some Krawlers on there... I dunno... nothing too big, maybe just 6" lift and some 35" Krawlers.... just enough to be able to climb a few hills and splash in the mud... ;)

My parents told me I could become anything I wanted..... So I became a lesbian.

Pic of Jeep.... not one that I can post... unless the 35mm kind taped to my lap top counts...

Pic of me... that's a different story.

Pics of Jeep will be going up soon once I get back into Langley and have my new Cam with me... my digi cam is the best thing I ever bought [36]

The Jeep is in some serious hurting condition right now. I need new windows and tires to start out with, some work on the electrical to get my wipers working, replacing the wipers is a good idea too... I've got a 5 speed for it (it still has the original 3) but need to do all the work to get that in and a new transfer case, etc etc. All this is just to get it legal to drive... and I'm sure I'm leaving some out.

So when I post pics, remember, she's a work in progress... hopefully more work this summer.

I consider myself a professional lesbian, but that is besides the point.[cheers] j/k you r who u are, ya know...but anyways

I've owned a CJ6 before and can tell you a leaf over axle lift gave me more than enough height for 33" tires, probably could have gone for 35"s. Mine had a buick V6 in it apparantly stock???? The previous owner had swapped out the standard tranny and put in a TH350 and it cruised nice!!! highway and all, the thing rocked, although the condition sounds like it was similiar to yours, no roof, only bikini top, only half doors, no back seat, only the passenger side heater worked, leaked oil worse that Exon Valdez. But I loved it...nothing like cruising down the freeway @ 70MPH with the front window down. Can't say how it was offroad, never kept it long enough:( If I ever meet u at a funinbc get together let me know in advance and I'll bring pics (got no scanner for old schools pics to post)
[36] good luck can't wait to see pics I love those. I think I'll prolly get razzed, but... I think they are one of the nicer Jeeps ever made.[36][cheers]

awesome, was wondering what a CJ6 looked like.. http://www.off-road.com/jeep/tech/cj-6.htm...so I looked and I used to own one, a 74 or 75 with the 304 in it...was a nice rig, had tons of fun in it.[8D]

How is it, now matter where I go, if I say something sarcastic, someone ALWAYS takes it the wrong way... no offence was meant, and I certainly wasn't wanting to come off as cranky or anything...

And the "work on it naked" idea is an interesting one... possibly when the weather warms up... lol...

I'll officially by living in Langley end of this month, and I plan on getting out to a few events... been browsing the pics and they sure as heck make me homesick. V6Toy, I'd love advice from someone who has been there. I've been the passenger/bystander many a times, but this is my first rig (unless you count wheeling army trucks). As I've stated many a times, I'm a newbie, I admit to it, I came for advice from those less newbie than me :D

Well, the Jeep got towed to Kamloops to my parents farm where it is getting stripped and worked on... Sadly I couldn't keep it in Langley, but once it's fixed it will be back. Since my dad is the one pulling it apart that when I'm finished exams I can put it back together, there will be no naked mechanics on this Jeep... because I'm not doing that with my father [:0]



But I'm always up for a good mud wrestling bout... :D

Here's a pic of me pressure washing the green buildup on my Heep... I mean Jeep....

Everything on it is still original, and I'm in the process of pulling everything apart. It's got the original Buick V-6 "Dauntless" (tee hee hee) engine, as well as a 3 speed tranny. I've got a 5 speed for it, as well as axles from a 77 CJ-7 I can put in there if I want to (although I have a feeling I'm going to want bigger/better than that). I know I'm going to want to put stronger suspension in there as it's the super old school style.

I've never built up a truck before, and need this one as a daily driver (too poor to operate 2 vehicles) as well as my wheeling toy, so I don't want it to go too big. So- who suggests what for axle's? What type of things will I need to do to get the 5 speed tranny in there and working properly? Suggestions for beefing up my suspension? I'm su clueless on this thing, but so in love with her, I'd love some specific advice and suggestions on it. [cheers] Thanks guys!

If you want, I've got pics of the engine, suspension, and all that jazz too. Yay for finally seeing my Jeep in person!!!! (been in storage in a different province than I'm living in).

Ummmmm.... what exactly is a dyke supposed to look like? [f]

I start the real work in 2 weeks when I get back to BC... Dad plans on having the thing in pieces for me when i get there, although I'm trying to remind him that this is my Jeep and I want to be there helping and learning.

I was thinking of going with about 6" lift and 35's for tires. Got a buddy with a Yota that size, and it seems pretty good on and off road. Especially since my Jeep is about the same size wheelbase and everything as a Yota pick up.

I got this Jeep because it's unlike all the others... now I'm noticing how "rare" can equal "headache" for finding parts and the age old question- mod and wheel, or restore? Ah well. Thanks for the input, keep those suggestions coming!

Once the thing runs properly and is road worthy I will be getting a soft top made for it... actually thinking of a bikini top too.. and yeah... will have to get it custom made due to the length of the truck [16] yet another added expense. Ah well. I've already got a set of soft doors... apparently the buddy whose house I had it stored at for a few years decided to grab some CJ-5 soft doors for it, even though he has a CJ-7 [31] Works out well for me, free set of doors in that horrible tacky brown that Jeeps had for a while.

Thanks for the advice guys. I really appreciate it. When I get some work done, I will be posting pics as the project goes along to get advice and comments.
