Whether you're planning to conquer challenging mountain trails or simply make an impact cruising the asphalt, this 1982 Jeep CJ5 is ready to oblige. It's a great looking, strong running ride, with a freshly painted exterior and comfortable interior accommodations - and it's powered by a rock-solid solid drivetrain.
A lot of work has obviously been put in to bring this Jeep to top form. It wears a vibrant shade of red paint whose fresh condition suggests it was only recently applied -it's got quite a shine to it, along with a smooth, even texture. A quartet of fiberglass wheel wells painted gloss black provides an effective visual contrast, while newly added side mirrors and clean rubber seals further elevate the look of this very appealing classic. Ultra-clean, polished tube bumpers are in place both fore and aft and a sturdy gloss black roll bar looms over the cabin for rollover protection. Stance-wise, this CJ5 strikes a nice balance, as its noticeable but still practical lift equips it with plenty of wheel clearance yet isn't extreme enough to adversely affect ride quality in more commonly encountered driving conditions. Crystal clear headlights illuminate the road ahead, while LED taillights in back offer more visibility than their traditional counterparts.
The pair of black vinyl racing-style buckets sitting between the vertical bars of the roll cage provide yet another indication of the action-oriented theme of this vintage off-roader. Up front, the newly painted dash, clad in glossy red paint to match the exterior, carries a collection of all new gauges to keep tabs on motoring functions, interspersed with hardware that appears to have been newly added - check out that chrome door on the glove compartment. Should this Jeep's next lucky owner prefer more traditional accommodations than the racing seats now in place - that team with a conventional vinyl-covered rear bench seat - a pair of more traditional buckets are included and a set of Stroud harness style seatbelts are on board as an added measure of safety. Below, the entire floor wears a Rhino-style liner - a feature that will likely come in handy, considering this classic Jeep has been so thoroughly configured for the kind of spirited fun that tends to bring dirt inside the cabin.
With a few well-chosen upgrades taking their place alongside factory components, this Jeep is ready for action without any delay. The 258 cubic inch inline six taking center stage in the tidy, well-organized engine compartment has been armed with a 2 barrel Weber carb that's crowned by a chrome, open element air cleaner, as well as a Hedman header to reduce backpressure and is in very good form, starting right up with a turn of the key and looking sharp with its newly painted block and valve cover. Fresh Accel plug wires and an HEI ignition maximize available spark as the powerplant teams with a 4-speed manual transmission that's shifting smoothly. When the open road calls, 4-wheel drive surefootedness is within easy reach via a lever sitting side by side with the shifter on the transmission tunnel - with this CJ5's substantial wheel clearance and beefy rubber gripping the terrain, its agility over rugged terrain is substantial. Power steering makes it easy to navigate in any situation, while power brakes featuring discs up front bring low-effort, fade resistant stops to its set of 15" wheels wearing 33x12.5R15 BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A tires.
This 1982 Jeep CJ5 is equipped for action, with an eager, capable powerplant anchoring its high-functioning drivetrain, and its vintage curb appeal is undeniable. Call today!
