    Default My CJ-7 Jeep

    Hi….guys, I have an abandoned CJ7 standing in my farm house in bahawalnagar. Body is almost rusted. 1C Engine needs a lot of repair. And there is some other work required like brakes, suspension (jeep goes to right when brakes are applied that’s old problem with this jeep is it some thing wrong with suspension?), tyres etc. etc. Now I am thinking to rebuild this jeep. First I want to know an experienced and competent mechanic, who can rebuild this. . Please tell me if you know any in Lahore? Second I have come to know that Fiberglass bodies are also available for CJ. Anybody knows how much it cost approx for a fiberglass body? At least it will solve the problem of rust in future. Any suggestions…

    Forget Fiber glass body. I sugesst you visit the large militarry contractor's go downs in I/10 islamabad, CT Sadar Road Rawalpindi or one in Lahore, the body shell wont cost you more than 30k besides a boatload of spare parts. you can certainly modify the brakes and suspension for better handling... the engines are dime a dozen at these stores or check on in Peshawer... take a note of every thing make a budget and there you go.... CJ 7 with a bit of nicely done chrome work will look sexy .... and if you find some one to paint it right (like the desert military color)
    Matchles G3L 1941, Triumph TRW 1951, Matchless G3LS 1952, Triumph T 100S 1968, Matchless G2 1958, BSA B-31 1952.......... I am insane!

    1C engine is too weak to handle the CJ-7 due to heavier body of the Jeep. Go for 1B, 2B or 3B engine.

    The most ecnomical yet powerful enuff engine would be a 2L or 2L-T
    Its 2400 cc.....you can also go for a 2800CC hulix engine....but 1B and 2B are oldies now and heavy on fuel.
    You can get a good 2L for about 40,000 and a 2L-T for about 50,000 with 5-speed gear box.
