I'm thinking of buying a jeep cj-7 (late 70's I believe) for my first vehicle. I'll be able to get it it dirt cheap too, about 4 to 600 bucks. The problem is, it has all those stupid liitle things that need to be fixed in order to pass inspection: a cracked windshield, problably bad brakes (pads, lines) , You can't even see through the vinyl windows, the tires MIGHT be good, there is some rust under the hood ( on certain engine components ), and it has a dysfunctional plow. Fun, huh. anyway, my friend lives down the road and said he saw it being driven last winter, but a lot could have happened between then and now. I was just wondering how much anybody thinks all this would cost, and a cheap place to get the parts.

Depends how much you can do yourself. If you can do your own brakes, you can get front and rear shoes/pads for ~$50. Brake lines are all over the place - depends what you need but I'd say under $100. Just clicked on the top link on google - http://www.windshieldstogo.com/ - $231 for a new windshield installed or $100 DIY. These are just ballpark figures. Wink

Depends how fancy you want to get, but probably about $500.
