This Jeep CJ-5 Laredo was purchased new in 1980 from the Sacramento Jeep dealer. (See original picture of the "pink slip") It was primarily used as the family vehicle for trips to Lake Tahoe. It was stored since 1996 in the family's ranch in San Luis Obispo.
It had approximately 13k original miles when it was brought out of storage and was brought back to life by the original owner with additional upgrades and enhancements. The date and mileage stamp is indicated underneath the hood. A 304 V-8 motor is paired to a T5 transmission (5 speed).
No expense was spared : Upgrades included: new front and rear Dana 60 one piece axles, ARB lockers installed (see glove box) ,the brand new best top soft top system and mean green alternator and starter.
