DESCRIPTION

With fresh paint, an upgraded interior, and a ton of stout components, this 1983 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler has been given all the right investments you'd want in classic and capable 4x4. So if quick enough to grab this one, you can skip all the work and go right to the fun part.
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 looks are unmistakably Jeep, it is a much rarer sight Jeep sold nearly eight times more CJ5s & 7s in '83 than the Scrambler pickup. It's this distinction that also explains where there has been plenty of recent investments in this one. It has a fresh application of Tangerine Orange that has the kind of gloss and clearcoat shine that will make you instantly stand out on the street or trail. And all that black trim and Scrambler stripe package goes great with the new black wheels. As the truck of Jeeps, this one has great versatile upgrades like the spray-in bedliner, KC fog lights, Rugged Ridge side steps, and Pro Comp heavy duty bumpers w/shackles.
Inside, it has been given the right investments to be a great pickup. The driver and passenger get bucket seats that are covered in newer application of a nearly bulletproof vinyl. In between is a locking center console that also has the welcomed addition of cup holders. The controls are laid out exactly how you want them. You get a grippy Grant GT three-spoke steering wheel, the gearstick is an easy reach, and there's a short stalk floor shifter for the four-wheel drive. Plus, gauges, heater controls, and upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo are clustered in the center of the dash. The hardtop has been sealed to the cab for the ultimate in weatherproofing and let's face it, the black hardtop fits the exterior color scheme so well. But anyone who wants the full open air experience can still remove the seal.
One look under the hood, and you can tell there was plenty invested in keeping the engine bay looking and performing its best. AMC's 258 cubic-inch (4.2-liter) motor has been a long-standing reliable motor for Jeeps. This one has recently been given a tune-up that also included new wires, coil, and distributor. It runs cool in all conditions thanks to an upgraded aluminum radiator. That's especially good to know because there have been other great investments in keeping this a go-anywhere Jeep. The list includes new tie rods, HD steering box, shocks, stabilizers, sway bars, ball joints, and axle seals. Add this to the tall ground clearance, two-speed 4x4 transfer case, and Kevlar reinforced Goodyear Wrangler MT/R tires. Plus, the control of the four-speed manual transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes are great to have in all conditions.
Complete with maintenance records, this turnkey-ready Scrambler grabs attention wherever it goes, and since it's a go-anywhere classic Jeep, we know it will be going out of our showroom quickly. Call today!!!
