1980 Jeep CJ-7
- 4.2 Liter (258) AMC
I'm planning to take my 1980 CJ-7 on a 1,200-mile road trip towing a small U-Haul trailer. The Jeep is in good running shape, but aside from the radiator most of the parts under the hood are original.
Does anyone have recommendations on components to have checked (and possibly replaced) before such a long trip in an older vehicle? I'm planning on changing belts, hoses and oil and installing a new water pump, but any additional tips would be appreciated.
