High School Se­nior Project

Jp Magazine - - Jeep Shots -

Joe Gagliani and his fa­ther com­pleted this project five years ago for Joe’s high school se­nior project. The 1977 Jeep CJ-5 Golden Ea­gle is a frame-off resto­mod com­plete with a num­bers-match­ing 304 V-8, 4-bar­rel, and up­graded HEI ig­ni­tion. A GM TH400 au­to­matic trans­mis­sion with Quadra-Trac trans­fer case car­ries the power to the axles. The Jeep is all steel. The tub was found in an air­craft hangar with 15,000 orig­i­nal miles on it. The sus­pen­sion is a Su­per­lift 4-inch kit with 33x12.50x15 BFG KM2s wrapped around orig­i­nal Golden Ea­gle wheels. The bumper is a Ram­page front for an ’87-’06 Wran­gler retro­fit­ted to fit the front fram­erails. An orig­i­nal Goodyear Tracker A/T is mounted on the spare tire car­rier with an un­touched orig­i­nal Goldie wheel.
