my bud is going to look at a cj7 this weekend. hes been driving a saturn since he was 16 and hes sick of it. (23 now) i wont be able to go with him to check it out so im making a list of things for him to specificly look at or at least sound like he knows what hes talking about when he askes about them. ive never tried to make up a list like this before so it would be very helpful if yall could add anything to my list, other than "dont let him buy a jeep", or whatever. sorry if my quadratrac comment steps on anyones toes but hes not the kinda guy that will figure out how to maintain it right. 1 hard or soft top?...........soft tops are rather cold in winter but they kick ass in summer time 2 transfer case.......... dana300 good quardratrac bad---- these like to pop chains and eat front ends. 3 is it blowing any oil out the tail pipe? 4 do the tires actually fit on it or are they way to big? 5 tranny...is it a ba-10? ba-10= bad if an auto is a it a th400? th400 good 6 will it go into 4x4 and does 4x4 work? 7 are the contact areas in the clutch linkage totally worn dorn? 6 does all the electrical stuff work? headlights turn signals brke lights 7 what are all the mods? 8 look all over for rust 9 look all over for ****** rigging 10 look around for bondo 11 see if the guages work 12 air? heat? would you mind un-wedging your fullsize from between those trees? your blocking the trail.
