“Trading or selling my beautiful 1978 DJ-5F!
It has a straight 6 with 232 ci, 90 hp.
Along with this piece of American motor, you’ll get a set of 4 snow tires and a full spare, the Service Manual, cans of primer, and other miscellaneous bits. I have the original letter platform.

Work that has been done:
-Filters and fluids changed (air, oil, transmission)
-Brakes bled
-Cleaned carburetor
-New front turn signal assemblies installed
-Redone labels for thermometer
-Repaired fuel gauge
-Installed new windshield wiper pump
-Lubricated manual windows
-Lowered gas tank to allow for more rear storage
-Installed kill switch

I have physical and electronic copies of the service manual. If you want to gander at the service manual, email me.

Has been my frequent driver, but times change. I am selling it, because there is no place to install a baby car seat and I have a 2 year old with another on the way.

$3000 OBO. Looking to trade for a Honda Acty Van (which I’d mod the backseat to have seat belts).

Doors currently off the jeep to install new sliding blocks FYI.”

    Hey Robert,
    I took down the ad, because it developed a short that drains the battery. I couldn’t responsibly sell it as was. I’ve instead a battery disconnect switch; we’ll see if that fixes the issue.
    Thanks for the interest,
    John (
