How can I trace the history of my 1980 CJ5? I would lie to know how long it has been in Arizona. Also, my serial number is only 13 digits. Is that correct?

Registration records are private in most if not all states so asking the DMV probably won't get you anywhere. Try Carfax to see what they show.
