The commanding stance, rugged interior, and a serious small block V8 upgrade make this 1981 Jeep CJ7 a distinctly desirable 4x4. And it has a level of quality inside and out that makes it desirable for more than just its off-road prowess.
They always say a Jeep will take you out to the most remote parts of the country, and so the black metallic paint fits nicely on this CJ. After all, there's a radiant glow within the darkness that will remind you of the kind of starry night you get .....
when you're far away from any urban light pollution. It looks good right now, and professional detail should unlock a show car kind of style if that's what you want. But really, we like it because you don't have to be flashy when you're this rugged. The rest of this blackout package has beefy upgrades. It includes the diamond plate rockers, matching wraparound rear plates, steel side steps, and fenders flared big enough to contain the big Mickey Thompson wheels. And the steel bumpers are particularly nice. The front has integrated tow hooks and KC auxiliary lights, and the rear is also both robust and useful with the tow hooks and trailer hitch attached to the steel.
The sale comes with an emergency-use tan soft top, but really, a Jeep is just built to be open to the world. That's why this one has There's liner paint surrounding the inner tub, rugged floor mats, and a more comprehensive roll cage. This one also goes the extra mile to give you added comfort with features like an AM/FM stereo w/Aux input, and a lockbox armrest center console with cup holders. It's a better river with Corbeau front bucket seats that have good bolstering and proper harnesses. You also get an upgraded sports steering wheel, an Ididit tilt steering column, and a full gauge package now set in a handsome billet dash panel.
This classic Jeep has proper Chevy power under the hood. This is a 305 cubic inch V8, and it got an Edelbrock upgrade trio with ribbed valve covers, a polished air grabber, and a Performer aluminum intake. It has also been topped with a Holley and four-barrel carburetor. There are also good supporting components like an aluminum radiator, an electric fan, steel braided lines, and an Optima red top battery. And the shorty headers let this V8 exhale with added power and authority into the dual exhaust and Magnaflow mufflers. The Muncie SM465 four-speed manual transmission gives you proper control over this upgraded powerhouse and a nice and low first gear for plenty of low-end torque. This works with the two-speed 4x4 transfer case lifted suspension, a front sway bar quick disconnect, and Nitto Mud Grappler tires make it plenty capable in the rough. Plus, power steering, power brakes, and front discs make for a solid cruiser experience.
This is a build that gives you everything you want for both comfort and ability. That makes for an awesome classic Jeep that you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
