Jeep expert, automotive instructor and author of the "Jeep Owner's Bible, Moses Ludel demystifies the most complex service procedures. Is it time to rebuild the axles or install a locking differential on your vintage Jeep vehicle? Does your CJ model need a frame-off restoration? Between these covers you will find the unit repair and overhaul steps for completely rebuilding a 1946-1971 Jeep CJ! If engine, transmission, transfer case, axle, steering, electrical or metal restoration seem difficult or beyond your skills, here is the fix! Moses Ludel, Jeep vehicle expert, automotive instructor and author of the "Jeep Owner's Bible, demystifies the most complex service procedures. Talking with hundreds of enthusiasts at his Camp Jeep workshops, Moses discovered that hobbyists and professional Jeep vehicle mechanics alike want heavily illustrated, step-by-step 'how-to' manuals. For the Jeep vehicle owner who finds the typical workshop manual impossible to decipher, Moses Ludel breaks ground with this book. No longer will you struggle with pages of text and an occasional photograph. The author and photographer/illustrator of more than 2,500 magazine tech articles and five popular "Owner's Bible books, Moses undertook the "Jeep CJ Rebuilder's Manual to meet the needs of Jeep vehicle owners and restorers. With this ambitious effort, Moses launches a series of 'how-to' rebuild manuals with a photograph marking eachtechnical step. For an authentic restoration to original equipment standards or sensible upgrades that will enhance the performance of your vintage Jeep CJ, this is the book. Moses Ludel brings his mastery of Jeep technology into your shop!
