Jeeps are a timeless representation of a go-anywhere 4x4 spirit. So it's great to find an example like this 1979 Jeep CJ7 that samples from the best of this vintage line and adds in plenty of cool/modern upgrades... all for a very attractive price.
This Jeep is distinctive from the first moment you lay eyes on it. The electric blue metallic paint instantly conveys the modern investment in this classic icon. The Renegade trim also sends the right message. After all, it has the .....
vintage look that complements the classic V8 badging and overall iconic CJ design lines. And the black is the perfect setup for the all darkly painted function this 4x4 has to offer. It includes tubular rock rails that perform double duty as steps, diamond plate rockers, hood pins, Poison Spyder Customs hood louver, trailer hitch, and 15-inch Pro-Comp wheels. But our favorite part showcasing style and function is the front end. The rugged Metalcloak front bumper has an attached shovel, and you've even been upgraded to LED headlights.
Inside continues the black and blue theme nicely. It starts with updated seating with weather-friendly neoprene seat covers. Plus, liner paint on the floors keeps cleanups a snap, and the rugged floor mats up front are ready to catch any dirt or mud that happens to get tracked back in the Jeep. There is a locking center console that is big enough to fit any loose items in for those bumpy trail rides. Everything is within easy reach, such as the four-wheel drive shifter. Beyond the three-spoke steering wheel is a center mounted large speedo. Plus, all the knobs, padding, auxiliary gauges, and lighting look fresh. You can choose to stay buttoned-up to the world with the removable hardtop and full side doors, but that's not what Jeep life is really about. And so we know you'll love being open and showing off the color-matched roll bar and pre-runner style spare tire mount. Plus, with the spare gas can, fire extinguisher, and Rotopax tool kit, this one is ready for an adventure.
Unlatch the hood, and beyond the shine of the valve covers, you'll find the rough-n-ready function of a 290 cubic-inch AMC V8. Besides just looking good, it has a Flowmaster dual exhaust to give you the right sound and fury this machine deserves. It feeds a stout Ford 9-inch rear end and Dana 44 front axle when the 4x4 is engaged. Plus, this engine has gone through a thorough servicing in the last 8,000 miles that will keep it strong on the trail. This includes new plug wires, distributor cap, heater core, fan, radiator, flywheel, and starter. Steering feels great with a new steering box, pitman arm, and steering shaft. Plus, on or off-road this Jeep feels solid thanks to new brakes and a complete set of urethane bushings. But when you check out all of these components in the undercarriage pictures, the real standouts are the updated pieces that really allow this Jeep to be the leader on the trail. It includes the Daystar one-inch body lift, new leaf shackles, new tie rod assembly, and all shocks, including stabilizer, by the masters at Skyjacker (and also adds an addition 2.5 inches of lift.) Add in features that are welcomed anywhere like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, and the anytime grip of BF Goodrich All-Terrain tires. Yes, this Jeep is truly the complete package.
Here's a custom Jeep that's been enhanced to excel on or off the pavement and look unique doing it. Just remember, you weren't the only one who saw this exceptional 4x4, so hurry up and call today!
