  2. fordtruck0 Says:

    Great episode! Would loved to have seen more of the Fabulous Fords Forever car show!

  3. JimPrower Says:

    reminds me of the ol’ do-it-yourself shows on the original TNN. Nice.

  4. motorztv Says:

    @buulets Thanks for watching–and the comment!

  5. motorztv Says:

    @fordtruck0 We were a little short on time for this episode, but we included some of the best of the best!

  6. motorztv Says:

    @JimPrower Thanks Jim! Which shows? Do you recall their names?

  7. JimPrower Says:

    @motorztv Shadetree Mechanic comes to mind first, but there were several that were a lot like it.

  8. JXintheZ Says:

    Really cool project!

  9. reallunacy Says:

    I really enjoyed the start of the break down. This is stuff I want to do. By the way, everyone needs a Binford 2000

  10. rebelrecycler Says:

    i like it this way of watching the show ……more longer shows weekly be nice on here……..and bout time ya guys get on with the jeep……cant wait for more……..

  11. ahjjones Says:

    Love the Jeep re-build! Keep it up! Glad to see us Jeep guys have something interesting to watch on here. :)

  12. fixinggrace Says:

    This is more my speed on fixing cars and trucks which is a back to basics approach. Regardless of the budget, handy people like to do the job right and learn a few tricks to save time and money. Making the end result look good is a plus as well. Love your show.

  13. HumorusPr4wn Says:

    may I ask why a Jeep has a Buick engine?

  14. foxdmulder Says:

    Welcome back Chris, missed your show, best of luck with the new project.

  15. Robinson4643 Says:

    FINALLY!! Been waiting since you bought the CJ. Happy to see you guys getting new sponsors, you deserve it.

  16. amm1x Says:

    please 2010 camaro video

  17. angrystanmotion Says:

    @HumorusPr4wn: Kaiser-Jeep didn’t have the resources to design their own engines. You can argue with the Buick 231, especially in hindsight.

  18. HumorusPr4wn Says:

    @angrystanmotion but isnt Jeep chrysler? or was this before they merged,

  19. MrJohnjake Says:

    can u do a vid of installing some fog lights please

  20. AngelicTonyDawg Says:

    Love the Tim Allen references , Great job with motorz keep up the good work

  21. motorztv Says:

    @MrJohnjake Watch the next episode ;)

  22. wak133 Says:

    how much does 1 of these run?

  23. sideburns2009 Says:

    @HumorusPr4wn In 1968, this Jeep’s model, they were Kaiser-Jeep, then after that they were bought by AMC which Chrysler then bought in 1987. Chrysler changed the AMC brand to the Eagle brand and kept the Jeep brand and origin. AMC is where Jeep got the infamous 4.0L Inline 6.

  24. motorztv Says:

    @JXintheZ It really is… we’re excited about working on it.

  25. motorztv Says:

    @reallunacy Oh yeah! Argh Argh Argh! Glad you enjoyed the episode. Thanks for watching!

  26. motorztv Says:

    @rebelrecycler Thanks for the feedback man! I really wish we could do weekly shows but it’s not possible at this point. There’s a lot of work that goes into each episode so we need at least 2 weeks. Hopefully that changes one day.

  27. motorztv Says:

    @ahjjones We’ve got more coming, and thanks watching. We are planning to do a lot with the Jeep!

  28. motorztv Says:

    @fixinggrace Thanks for watching… and the feedback! We’ll be sure to include as many tips as possible to save time and money.

  29. motorztv Says:

    @foxdmulder Thanks! We’re stoked to have season 4 kick off with an exciting new project vehicle.

  30. motorztv Says:

    @Robinson4643 Thank you thank you thank you! The CJ has been fun so far… a lot more to come. Having the Sears Blue Tool Crew on board is incredible, let me tell you!! I’m honored.

  31. motorztv Says:

    @amm1x We’ll see what we can do!

  32. motorztv Says:

    @AngelicTonyDawg Thanks Tony! Glad you caught them… hope you liked a few of the Home Improvement scene transitions. I hope to add many more in future episodes. MORE POWER!

  33. motorztv Says:

    @wak133 How much does one of what run? The Jeep?

  34. EricTheCarGuy Says:

    I really enjoyed this episode especially the alpha transitions, you looked a little scary in that welding helmet though. Excellent work, one of the best how to’s on YouTube for sure.

  35. motorztv Says:

    @EricTheCarGuy OMG EricTheCarGuy in the house! I love it… thanks for checking in, bro! Love your how-to car videos too.

  36. wak133 Says:

    @motorztv yea the jeep, b/c i was just looking at trying to do one of these with my dad! thnks!!!

  37. motorztv Says:

    @wak133 This was a rare find, like I said in the video… I picked it up for $2k. Most Jeeps of this age are in horrible condition… and can’t be driven. I like to think I got a good deal!

  38. savoyk Says:

    I like the attention to safety but, another good reason for ear plugs when doing any hotwork is to keep hot metal shavings or, sparks out of your ears. I also insist that my employees wear them while welding. When fabricating or tearing down any equipment is is seldom possible to stay in a position to keep these hazards from affecting you without protection.

  39. motorztv Says:

    @savoyk Good safety tip!! Thanks for sharing. I’ll be sure to mention that one in the future.

  40. bmorrisseau24 Says:

    i honestly love these videos. you look like you have so much fun doing all this and that really makes it enjoyable to watch them. :)

  41. motorztv Says:

    @bmorrisseau24 Officially the Motorz TV Comment of the Week! Thanks!!

  42. motorztv Says:

    @bmorrisseau24 Oh and BTW, you’re right… we have an absolute blast filming Motorz TV… and that goes for my crew too. Glad that you can tell!

  43. AngelicTonyDawg Says:

    @motorztv well a little more grunting and you will fit in just nicly :) and by that point anyone who has seen “Home Imporovement” will know what your doing , all us regular die hard fans of that show got all your little jokes

  44. motorztv Says:

    @AngelicTonyDawg I’m a huge fan and hope to have many more salutes to HI in the future.

  45. 2fast4all Says:

    sweet project, and YES craftsman tools are the BEST!!! Hope you got a craftsman air compressor as well. Is that a red top optima batter? That pretty modern already :P

  46. motorztv Says:

    @2fast4all Yes they are! I’ve been borrowing a Craftsman air compressor from a friend, but I’m happy to say my own 27gal Craftsman Professional air compressor arrives today! As for the Optima battery in the Jeep… LOL that was in there when I bought the Jeep a few months ago. One of the previous owners slapped it in :)

  47. james richard carothers and shari Says:

  49. thebonencp Says:

  51. 21mejia25 Says:

    So any air tools from the blue tool crew ?

  52. motorztv Says:

    @21mejia25 Yes, we’re all stocked up now with all the air tools we need thanks to the Sears Blue Tool Crew!!

  53. 21mejia25 Says:

    @motorztv That is great! I remember awhile ago you were asking for donation of air tools

  54. 21mejia25 Says:

  56. motorztv Says:

    @21mejia25 Since the first episode! We have been getting buy on borrowed tools, but it’s finally nice to have our own air tools thanks to my partnership with Sears.

  60. AnimaliaHolocaust Says:

    4:13 Santa clause laugh!! :) What led me to this video is a 1968 cj5 for sale here for about 3500 dollars. Thinking about buying it.. runs and drives- no lift or anything though. Mostly stock I think.. I’m just a highschool jeep-lover though, trying to get into working on vehicles. :) Any tips? good deal, bad deal?

  61. motorztv Says:

    @AnimaliaHolocaust Ho ho ho! LOL That’s a bit pricey but I can’t see it to give a better opinion. You might want to try talking him down on it.

  62. AnimaliaHolocaust Says:

    @motorztv Thanks for the advice! I’ll ask if he’s firm, and we’ll see how it goes. :) I’ll post a video if I decide to buy it.

  63. motorztv Says:

    @AnimaliaHolocaust I’d love to see it… good luck!

  64. AnimaliaHolocaust Says:

    @motorztv Thanks! :) we’ll see.

  65. AnimaliaHolocaust Says:

    @motorztv Thanks! :) we’ll see.

  66. cactusmanbwl1990 Says:

    just bought a 77 cj-5. i love it. and i’m finding this vid really beneficial.

  67. AnimaliaHolocaust Says:

    Check it out!! Found another 1968 jeep! :) I’m going to hopefully look at it tomorrow! I’ll note you guys the link!

  75. stusvend Says:

    WD40?! Dude, where’s the torch, the hammer, the PB BLASTER? WD40 is a good around the house libricant/solvent but not near the best for loosening 43 year old stubborn, rusted old bolts. Other than that, I am really enjoying this show.

  76. motorztv Says:

    @stusvend Thanks for watching, and the comment. We do have some PB Blaster now but you know what? We’ve had great success with WD40 too.

  77. motorztv Says:

    @TheCaneArtist Wow, thank you for the great feedback and for watching the show!

  78. BrenGun1971 Says:

    @motorztv I understand what you’re saying and absolutely no disrespect intended but this is sponsored by Sears and so you need to sell yourself. For liability reasons you’re not going to advocate torch use and you’re not going to mention a BFH as who is going to go to Sears just buy a hammer? Not saying there isn’t a use for an air impact wrench in tearing down an old jeep but a can of PB Blaster and a manual wrench gets you as far or farther.

    @BrenGun1971 Thanks for the feedback and your perspective!

  85. BrenGun1971 Says:

    @motorztv WD-40 is good for water proofing and lubricating, but not for breaking rust free of old bolts. No wonder you broke the head off a bolt on the hood hinge, someplace that isn’t notorious for that much rust. I used to use WD-40 before I knew better and found out that it was mind over matter that had me convinced that it was working. Nowadays I use both it & PB.Still I have my hat off to you for choosing an old jeep to work on! I’m restoring a ’53 3B now and have been through this.

  89. 1impalaman Says:

    lose the idiotic guitar music. so tired of that crap in car shows.

  90. motorztv Says:

    @1impalaman What would you like to hear for background music instead?

  91. 1impalaman Says:

    @motorztv Background music is a must to help captivate the attention of the viewer. But the heavy guitar riffs are so over done…. Horsepower TV, Trucks, etc….. I’d recommend changing it up. Be original. Don’t play the same type all the time. You obviously want to appeal to a wide audience.

  92. motorztv Says:

    @1impalaman Thanks for the feedback, and I agree. How about some rap or disco? j/k Seriously… some mellow country music?

  94. jessevardaman Says:

    you put rap or hip hop junk on as bumper music and I will boycott your show so fast your head will swim in the rap-hop ghetto

  95. motorztv Says:

    @jessevardaman We were just kidding, of course :)

  96. liquidrum7 Says:

    @motorztv I actually enjoy the heavy guitar rifs. I know it’s overused but when you talk about motors, cars, etc.. that’s the most suitable music. I don’t see HipHop in there, neither techno or dubstep, classic, jazz, blues.. Maybe some bluegrass. In the end rock is the best way to go.

  97. motorztv Says:

    @liquidrum7 Thank you–we agree! We’re looking for more royalty free music we can use for our show so that it’s not always the same. The newer episodes feature some new stuff already.

    How did you have a hardtime getting parts you need? You guys realize that the Jeep CJ5 was one of the most popular vehicles of all time? Though they changed the design in the 70’s you can buy pretty much the whole fucking Jeep on J.C. Whitney! What the hell is with all of your chink made tools? Buy American (Yes you can still find them pay more for them so you should). I have a 40 year old drill that still runs better then the chinese made shit these days. Fuck foreign products especially cars.
