800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1982 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler Restomod is a rugged build of a cool off-road machine. But as you dig deeper, you're going to see extra versatility in everywhere from the fuel-injected V8 power to the three-row seating. And so you'll realize all the big investment were about both off-road prescience and overall usability.
The Desert Sand paint not only has a name fit for an off-road machine, but also it has a cool satin finish that adds extra distinction. It has the right modern look for a vehicle that has less than 5,750 miles on it. We also like this paint because it provides a nice background for all the beefy black details. You really see pieces like the fender flares, rocker guards, grille guard, rear bumper w/trailer hitch, and front bumper with a big tubular bull bar to clear a path. And this blackout has very handy features, including the rear rack with spare fuel cans and the jack mounted to the hood. Since that dark wheel and tire package helps to elevate the stance, there's also electronically deploying side steps. So there's plenty of cool style within the brawny features of this custom build.
The black soft top looks great when it's in place because it coordinates nicely with the other exterior black pieces. But we bet you'll really love taking it down to show off the interior. This is an awesome setup where the front buckets have a fresh look and plenty of bolstering. Plus, we know you love the look of the alligator skin texture on the durable vinyl. The headrests have a cool/custom CJ8 logo, too. This custom build takes full advantage of the Scrambler's longer wheelbase and gives you two rear rows! They both have seatbelts are finished in the same cool alligator texture. There's added comfort with a cup holder center console, Grant sports steering wheel on a tilt column, and a Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input to plug in your phone.
With such a rugged look on the outside, you really want this kind of muscle to back it up. So under the hood is an upgrade to a 350 cubic-inch Chevy crate motor. The V8 has a clean look that reminds you this is a fresh build, and there are nice details, like how the ridges in the air topper match the Edelbrock valve covers. Plus, the Edelbrock electronic fuel injection adds power and consistency. The mighty V8 exhales from full length headers that add power with contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. As you check out those pipes in the undercarriage photos, you'll also spot nice upgrades like a strong G2 Dana 60 rear end, Bilstein shocks, and Pro-Comp Xtreme Terrain tires. These go with the two-speed 4x4 transfer case to deliver a capable off-road ability. But there's more to this build. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes are great for on or off the pavement. And the way this one has a solid feeling from the driver's seat tells you that lifted Jeep is also nice for in-town driving.
This custom CJ8 has an awesome powerful look that also doesn't skip out on the right comforts. So it's a great restomod that you need to get your hand on right now.
