    I found this list on the CJ2A page. I have searched to no avail (perhaps I am using the wrong keywords). Do we have anything like this for the CJ5's?

    I'd be pretty interested in making one of these that we could fill in - do you think that a public Google Doc would help? I am happy to set one up and host it.

    I fully support this idea. Perhaps we can even start for that same CJ2A list and amend/add as needed.

    Can we ask the admin to make a sticky note of this post?

    That's great! Thanks for the reminder that I set one up and forgot to post it....wondering if this might be better done in a spreadsheet with tabs? We could also add links and part numbers.

    I took the above info from the first post and made a tab for the CJ2A. Then I made tabs for the other Jeeps, and removed all the parts to a separate tab called "Parts List." IDea being that people who are certain about what is what can copy the parts from the "parts list" tab and place them where they belong on the Jeep model tabs.

    I will have a go at the V6 Tux tab and note what I think I know for my year, hopefully someone like @Keys5a can edit /proof. TBH I don't know much and my Jeep was hacked so it's mostly blank.

    This is editable to anyone with the link:

    You might want to reach out to some of our members that are the original owners of their Jeeps. Wyomike for one is the original owner of his 71 renegade II.
