No it's not a supercoupe but a 1980 CJ 5. Always wanted one since I was 18 yrs. old but never bought one, now I did. It's already lifted with rims/tires, has a full roll cage, dual exhaust and brand new soft top. It needs a little TLC but that's no problem, I'm a tinkerer.

Looks like fun, I have always liked wranglers. Any updates on the mark?

I sold the Mark VIII a few months ago to a friend.

Bet you can't make it around the block with that thing without a smile on your face! Nice purchase.

Yeah, can't wait till the weather warms up enough to remove the top and doors so that the wind can blow my gray hair....................:D

I just rebuilt a mostly stock '97 TJ for my youngest daughter. It started out as a rusty piece of crap, wound up replacing some floor boards, rocker panels and frame sections. It was a fun project, hope to get it back from MAACO today or tomorrow.

I'm actually thinking about building one for myself now.

Looks like fun!!!

I got a 1970 Ford Bronco with a full fiberglass body and a BIG BLOCK in it.. It has power steering and disc brakes as well as a winch and big tires to go with it.. You could drive it home as it is all ready to go....Rich

Don't plan on going that far but I did add LED corner marker lights front/rear and tail lights.

You didn't put the flares on cause you was worried about other people. You put the flares on cause you was worried about the police giving you tickets for too much tire poke.;)

I've added some step bars, removed the chrome grill, changed the roll bar overhead configuration, gave it a rattle can cherry red paint job and touched up other areas that were black. Next step is adding a radio.............:)
