CJ7 1979

Title Status --
Exterior Color Yellow
Interior Color Black


Not only does this 1979 Jeep CJ7 look bold, but it was also specially given a fuel-injected 4.0-liter motor. So you can dig into all the other details, but we already know this 4x4 has you hooked.

The vibrant yellow paint makes this one instantly noticeable day or night, but the true ruggedness is in the dark side. You see it in the black components, like the Renegade flared fenders, heavy duty step rails, and swing-away rear mount for the full-size spare and 42-inch jack. And of course, you noticed the upgraded front bumper with Badland 9,000 lbs winch. There's even some nice brightwork that adds to this Jeep's utility, like the diamond plate rear corners, reinforced rockers, and upgraded 15-inch polished wheels. So this one is all about looking good while showing off how it can pull real 4x4 duty.

A Jeep like this was meant to be open to the world, and so some of the interior upgrades match the exterior black. This includes the full custom roll cage and bikini top. And we especially like how the front bucket seats have yellow piping to fully match the exterior. While you'll like this CJ for its ruggedness, there's also the right added comfort with a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner, cup holders, and Tuffy armrest locking center console.

We have a receipt from 2018 detailing over $9k of components and work from the masters at Fabwright in Amarillo. Not only was it for cool pieces for the front winch and rear jack, but also for other rugged upgrades for the motor. For example, the engine bay has the unmistakable look of added power. Jeeps have a long history of enjoying the strong inline six motors, but the CJ missed out on the largest displacement: the 4.0-liter. This special CJ now has the desirable displacement courtesy of a 2002 Grand Cherokee, and it's fuel injected and has a K&N cold air intake fitted as well. And because this is full professional installation, the ECU was even properly set up for CJ duty. Combined with the four-speed manual transmission and a new clutch kit, this package is ready to live up to the sturdy Jeep name. The rebuilt lifted suspension, BF Goodrich All-Terrain KO2 T/As, and two-speed 4x4 transfer case are all part of what makes this a true go-anywhere machine. Of course, a fuel-injected classic like this is also easy to take through town, and that's why you have anytime driving features like power steering and front disc brakes.

It's great to see a true 4x4 upgraded in all the right palaces so that looking better also adds more utility, too. So if you love a good Jeep, this is a great deal. Call today!!!
