    This jeep is a 78 CJ5 with a 3 speed and a inline 6cyl. My stepson decided it would look cooler rolled through a ditch and a fence. He was wrong. Now it has come time for me to rebuild it. My daily driver's transmission is about to go out, so instead of putting $2000 into that car (which is money I really don't have right now), I'm going to part it out and use that money to fix this jeep. The frame is twisted, which I will have to have untwisted locally, but I also need some of the mechanical pieces. It runs right now, but is not drivable. I have most of the body parts to make it whole again (though not as beautiful as I would like), but I'm looking for places I can get the mechanical stuff cheaper. What are the best forums online for this, or the best online shops/catalogs?

    Thanks in advance, and I would also like to hear any other suggestions on the matter. I may go snap some pics of the jeep as it is now, so it may be easier to see what I'm dealing with.

    It's going to have an inline 6, not a 4, and I would have beat the kid senseless.

    it was his jeep. he was paying for it. I was more concerned about injuries and lawsuits. But he's gone now for a bit, and I'm taking the Jeep over. It makes more sense to me to put $2000 into the jeep than into my pos sebring...

    As much as I hate the people there, a good resource (or at least it used to be) is Jeepsunlimited.
