This ’86 CJ-7 was moderately stock under the skin, but Ross Gillespie still piloted it everywhere the big Jeeps went. Under the hood is the 258ci inline-six, which now runs thanks to Mopar multiport fuel injection. The T-5 transmission is still between the framerails with the Dana 300 behind it. However, the Dana 300 has been clocked up for a flatter belly and stuffed with 4:1 gears. The front Dana 30 and rear Dana 44 are still present and accounted for, but they now have 4.56 gears and ARB Air Lockers in them. Custom Alcan springs team up with a 1-inch body lift to clear some 35-inch Goodyear MT/Rs.
