1949 CJ-3A Purchased 3 years ago. It had been sitting in a barn for about 10 years. Converted to 12v, restored body & brakes. Want to rebuild engine this winter.
I’m working on a ’46. How much lift did you add to yours. It looks great. I replaced my shocks and springs but wouild like to add a little lift. Any suggestions?
Jeff – When converting to 12v. Make sure you convert EVERYTHING on the jeep to 12 v. bulbs, gauges, starter, etc… I used the 1 wire alternator. Very easy.
Al – Thanks for the complament. My paint is Desert Gold – Omni Au Mtk 23577 A

I am in the process of restoring a 1950 as well. Mine is in good shape but wanted to start by converting to 12 volt with new wiring. What items are needed to complete the 12 volt conversion?
I love the color of your CJ-3A. I’m in the process of restoring a 1953 CJ-3A and have been looking for the right color yellow. Will you share the color and or paint code used on your jeep.
