Just a few things I have noticed in the Short time that I have owned this Jeep.....

1. It leans to the Drivers side....More in the Rear of it than anything...Kinda Like Suspension Sag....Is this a normal thing for these guys or is it something I need to look into.....

2. Sometimes when driving it around a corner I can feel something in the Rear kinda "Kick Loose" or Shift Back...If that makes any sense....But when I crawl under it,,,,It seems like everything is still "Right and Tight".....Any thoughts on this????

3. Despite the 2 things listed above....The Kewl factor for me is just Never Ending....I LOVE to drive this Jeep...

1. Was your father mainly the only person in the Jeep when it was driven. No passengers most of the time. If the answers is yes, it is could drive sag. Very common during the 70's and 80's on most vehicles. New springs will cure this.

2. Spring packs being lose and or wore out can cause this Also tired shocks. A locking rear end can amplify this affect.

3. Iwant to see a picture of your purdy MUG shot in the Jeep.

No thanks needed. Just sharing from what I learned while working for dad. Back in the day that was how most trucks around here were set up.

Man that thing is in great shape. I thought it was a newer jeep from the pic in the other post. Sounds to me like the left side leaf spring is sagging. You can get leaf spring support kit.."add a leaf" or something like that. One tip..JCWhitney has a ton of stuff for Jeeps! Jeep Helper Spring at JC Whitney

I don't own a jeep, but have worked on them and my friend owned an 85 or 86 CJ7.

      Hello everyone, I have a new to me 86 Bayou 300 that I just bought last night to get around the property. It wouldn't start when I bought it but it did turn over with starting fluid, PO said the carb neeeded cleaned. I cleaned the carb today but need to get the choke wired up as it was not wired up when purchased.
      I'm hoping one of you can help me get this choke wired up. Coming from the carb it has 2 wires. 1 is yellow and 1 is black. The PO said I needed to ground one and put the other one on a switch.
      Should I do it this way or is there another/better way to do it? I'd really appreciate any help I could get!! Thanks in advance!

      I am selling my Honda trx 70.
      It is all original everything, I have owned it since 1988 and it runs excellent and everything works as it should. Trans is good, brakes are good, steering, levers & cables, tires....everything perfect.
      The only issue with it is that it needs a seat cover since the original one is cracked in a couple places
      Plastic is scratched up a little but has zero cracks. The decals are all there but some are a little rough. ( It is 28 years old)
      It's stored indoors and has been for about 20 years.
      Perfect for small kids or bigger kids. I am 290 lbs and it carries me anywhere and everywhere. surprising power for a 70cc.
      Starts on the first or second pull (If I remember to turn on the gas)
      Asking $750 or make me an offer - can email pics if interested. (not sure how to put them on here.
      I am in central Arizona -Payson, Az. email me at [email protected]
