My new addition - 1984 CJ7

Recommended Posts

Jeep is out of the shop for awhile, time to finish gear break-in period. Still some tweaks to be made, but love driving this ol CJ! Power Brakes & Hydraulic clutch make a great improvement!!

Big thanks to Sean & John for all help & laughs!

Been awhile since I’ve updated...

Busted the lockright during the June annual cruise night acting like a 16yo... Took me awhile but I finally installed new spartan locker in Oct.

Also scored a hard to find Factory 20gal tank setup & low (100k) mileage dash/gauge cluster to replace the crappy aftermarket speedometer in mine...

I’ve also replaced all the window & weather seals in the doors. Up next is installing new hinge bushings/liners for the doors.

Also have new Pro Comp 51 Series (D-Window) wheels with 2.5” backspacing. The current wheels have 3.75” backspace, which if I had stock CJ steering arms wouldn’t be an issue. I don’t like spacers, so opted for new wheels. When they get here I’m going to make a jig/template from my OEM CJ wagon wheel for the center cap bolt pattern. Then I will drill the new wheels to fit the OEM chrome caps!

(Pic for reference... not my caps, found on Google)

I’m also debating installing sound deadener & carpet and/or vinyl flooring. Something to help hold the heat in during the cooler months.

Will also need to replace the Waterpump, have heater core recored & replace heater fan (original has bearing whine). Waterpump is leaking. Cant recall if I replaced it 5 1/2yrs ago when I rebuilt the head & timing set...

Recent goif-off pics!

Are you putting in a Blazer heater fan? I did that a few years ago and it puts out a lot of wind.


I’ve though about it. A bit curious how it will affect the battery tray? The stock fan motor sits very close to it, I know the blazer fan is larger.

It is close, but I had no issues with the battery tray on mine. I will try to remember to look closely at the clearance when I get back yo it later tonight or tomorrow.

Any luck on checking on this Dain? I've been reading a few different people's accounts. Some have to clearance the battery tray, some do not. Could just be how good they were at getting the enlarged opening evenly opened up from center.

Can’t really get a pic, but I have about a mm of clearance above the blower motor before I hit the bottom of the battery tray. Close.
