CJ-7 soft top

A friend of mine is looking for a soft top for his CJ-7. Anyone have one taking up space in the garage?

Return to main site

Please note that if you click on the "Mid-Illini Jeepers" text in the blue bar at the top of any forum page, it will take you back to the main site home page. This function tends to break when I update the forum, as it's custom code, and I usually forget how to add it back again. Such was the case t...

Anybody use one of these, or something like it? All this drive-by-wire computer gobbledy-gook is not on my Jeeps!

MIJC Banquet thanks

A big thanks to both the recognized and unsung heroes of the club (like the elves who book the hall and rearrange the tables before everyone gets there) who make the banquet happen. We had a great time. Also thanks to all the folks who gave Thomas a pop-tab or two. You thirsty fish ended up giving h...

Re: 98 4.0 lower radiator hose

Jeeps are surprisingly unskilled at keeping fluids where they are supposed to be. However, a rear diff cover gasket is a cheap and fairly easy repair, and it gives you an excuse to change out the gear oil. If the puddle is in the middle of the rear axle that's probably all it is. It could also be th...

My weekend freelance work is one of the reasons I feel like I cannot/should not hold an office in the club, as I only get to a few meetings per year and almost no wheeling event...

Also, regarding the MIJC Facebook "page" and "group". Jill added me as an admin to both this week. Further research indicates I was wrong; we can't merge a Facebook page with a group. I suggested to Larry W. that we keep the group (which has all our activity) and ditch the page, after giving warning...

A few comments. Although I'm on Facebook, and you could even say that most people are, not everybody is, and I think it's unfair to ask people to join that third-party website to participate in the conversation or view club pictures (even if all the important stuff happens on the forum). Yes, it's f...

I was asked at a club meeting earlier this year to look into the Facebook issue, which I agree does cause some confusion. One of the Facebook pages is a "page", where only the administrator of the page (and duly authorized deputies) can post. The other, which is the one with all the activity, is a "...

Re: Proposed 2020 calendar of events

It would be important to make sure that the American Legion could still accommodate us on the 18th before we make such a change. I don't know if January 11th was already checked out with them.

Re: Nominations for Club President

Frank and I started talking in the context of, "well, NOW what?" Specifically, what happens if nobody wants to be president, and the snowball effect from there. Does that mean that Larry Haas becomes the de-facto president, or at least has the job of leading the monthly meetings? What if this sentim...

Re: 98 4.0 lower radiator hose

It sounds like you've got it figured out, but the other thing I was going to suggest is to use a quality american-made hose clamp so you can tighten it down without stripping it, and make sure it's positioned optimally on the hose and pipe. If you get it on there crooked or too shallow, part of it c...

Re: Jeep value

I think all the standard Jeep stuff applies too... has it been wheeled (lower price if it has, higher if it's fairly pristine), if lifted, was it done correctly, etc. For tops, I'd look at what kind of shape the soft top is in, if there is one. At that age, if it's original and well-used, the window...
