Hot Rodded 1981 Jeep CJ-5 with AMC 360 V8 - Too much fun
*This video is old, needs to be updated. The engine/drivetrain has been vastly improved since this video was filmed.*
My daily driver 1981 Jeep CJ-5 with a .030 over AMC 360 V8 with a little bit of work done to it.
Edelbrock 600cfm Performer carb
Edelbrock Performer Intake
CompCams 268H AMC camshaft with matched timing set
Stock ignition system for the most part
Everything else is explained in the video. Filmed on a high 20 F degree day. This Jeep is too much fun and the AMC V8's are very strong motors. This one has about 6,000 miles on it since the engine rebuild. The speedometer is accurate give or take 2-3mph, checked with a GPS.
The T176 is a great transmission and has never skipped a beat. I've wheeled it pretty hard and put it through some hell on the street and at the strip with several tire size/gear combinations. 3rd gear redlines at about 90mph with the current setup. I've never really gotten much into 4th gear.
For you guys who have shown concern regarding the suspension, steering, etc... It has all been refurbished/upgraded to stock/better than stock condition. It drives very well, straight and true down the road and is almost nothing like the stereotypical CJ when it comes to its road manners.
First Start AMC 360 Rebuild for Jeep CJ7
This is the very first time we actaully tried to start the engine after a complete rebuild of the AMC 360. We've been working on our first complete vehicle rebuild/restoration a Jeep CJ7. Getting closer and closer to driving her around. Had some trouble with the video cutting in and out, so I'll apologize in advance.
