        Mine is orange, but has a metallic sheen to it -- kind of a glaze that gives it a yellowish hue, much like yours.

        It's kind of orange-ish, depending on the lighting.

      I guess I'm not sure what you're talking about. Did I miss something? Sorry.

      I apoligize Patrick... I had a brain freeze and will pay better attention to what I am saying regarding parts. I did deal with the folks at Classic Interprise and have to say... fantastic, professional and very in-tune with r/r of body panels. I am also completely taken off-guard by AMC/ Kaiser... how strong and secure the spot welds and vertical, horizontal runs are so well placed for integrity! All I can add is steel, steel and more steel! Gunner EE, ME & Hi Energy Physics pHd (Bob works just fine Sir.) A lot of letters... but I remain more intuned to being beneath this ol CJ5 each and every day as this Forum's cred seems to breath with each and every posting...

      Hey Patrick, I got a set of headers for my 225 recently. Trying to figure out how to put em in. I see in your pics you have them on yours. is there any way you could send me a picture of how you ran yours? It would be a great help. Thanks Billy.

      How can I change my User name I now have a CJ5 and want to change the "1993blackyj". I registered with this name so I could post a question about the Jeep I was looking at buying. Bought it! Thanks

      I thought I remember you saying you had Herm's power steering kit installed on your 1970ish? The reason I ask is that I am having a REALLY hard time finding a mount for the power steering pump. I found one that fit great except that it sits directly on top of the steering box absolutely not room for hoses. Man I hope you can help me out if not I'm thinking of going another direction.

      Thanks in advance.

      I have a thread started in the builds section, could you move it up to the early CJ section so maybe I can get some responses? I could not find any info by searching. With all the knowledge floating around this forum, there ought to be someone familiar with solder for body work.

      Yeah it's the dual port. It works very well. The Jeep really pulls hard with this intake and the Edelbrock carb.
    15. Phalanxx
      oops, i mean the offenhauser dual port with 4bbl carb...
    16. Phalanxx
      hey patrick,
      i have a question. in your profile, you claim to have the offenhauser intake. is that the dual port witht he seperate upper and lower single planes based from the front 2 or rear 2 barrels or is it just an offenhauser intake?
      if its the dual port with 2 bbl, how do you like it? does it increase torque as much as they claim?
      thanx bud

      I've read a ton of your posts and we have very similar Jeeps, mine being a 1970 CJ5. My question to you is in regards to your spare tire and gas carrier where, what, and how much? Next I'm not sure where to start on my Jeep. I know everybody asks the same question mine appears to be 95% stock with the exception of the steering wheel and possibly column. All I really want to do is make it the safest most reliable daily driver I can. If I look at it as simple as I can I've decided to do a 1,2,3 step approach. Get it running as good as I can which means getting the hesitation out of the RMP curve. Two tighten up the steering if that means installing power steering so be it. Three change out brakes to 11" drums all the way around and hopefully include an emergency brake along the way. I'm dragging on but I just wanted to ask if you agreed with my plan and if there were any BIG safety items that I should look at doing right away that I was overlooking.

Mostly, I have to learn to navigate on this forum and proof read my "proof read" before sending! I close with--Best Regards! P.S. ...and hope message goes to intended recipient.
