A cool icon meets rarity, 4x4 prowess, custom rugged upgrades, an A/C interior, and plenty of V8 power in this 1983 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler.
The Scrambler is one of those Jeeps that everyone likes to see. It takes the iconic lines of the CJs and gives it the longest body of the series. While the look is unmistakably Jeep, it is also rarer than the CJ5s and CJ7s. It's this distinction that also explains where there has been plenty of investments in this one. The gray paint has an interesting tone in the pictures because it's actually liner paint. So if it's good enough to protect a pickup bed from a Home Depot run, then it absolutely enhances the 4x4 ruggedness of this Jeep's whole body. Up front is a robust steel bumper with brush bar and a Smittybilt winch. The rear is upgraded with a swing-away mount with full-size spare and bumper jack. Oh yeah, this one can play as hard as you do.
The custom liner paint application continues inside, which is exactly what you want. After all, since the hardtop and doors are removable, you get a great coordinated package no matter how much you decide to share this Jeep with the world. There's even a new bikini top that comes with the sale in case you want an open-air experience while keeping the sunshine off your shoulders. The driver and passenger get bucket seats that are covered in newer application of a nearly bulletproof vinyl. In between is an armrest center console that also doubles as a lock box. The controls are laid out exactly how you want them. You get a grippy classic Jeep wheel, the gearstick is an easy reach, and there's a short stalk floor shifter for the four-wheel drive. In the cenote of the dash is a full upgraded gauge panel and an AM/FM/CD stereo. You might have also notice the air conditioning vents installed below the dash. It makes this one of the most comfortable CJs you can get your hands on right now.
Jeep's 304 cubic-inch V8 is already an awesomely stout powerhouse, and this one has been upgraded further. It now has a mild cam and Holley four-barrel carburetor. Plus, this has great supporting components, like a Painless wiring harness, Mallory distributor, and an aluminum radiator. So it makes for a stout package that fires up eagerly and runs strong. The four-speed manual transmission gives you proper control over the V8 power. The two-speed 4x4 transfer case, lifted stance, and BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/As are a great package for off-road work. Plus, the power steering and front disc brakes make enjoying this Scrambler in town easy, too.
Complete with service manuals, this has the custom look, 4x4 prowess, and terrific features you want. So your dream Jeep is ready if you're quick enough to grab it. Call today!!!
