This CJ took a nap for about 20 years in a southern gentleman's back yard which explains why the mileage is so low and is considered to be the actual mileage. It was then bought and nicely restored by a Jeep enthusiast and driven for a while. Now you have the opportunity to own this beautiful example of an '85 Renegade.

One of the sweet things about this Jeep is that there is no evidence at all of any rust or damage to the body. The paint has been nicely refinished in the original Olympic White with black Renegade stripes and lettering in vinyl looking great contrasted against it. Splashes of chrome appear on the front bumper, headlight rings, mirrors, door handles, and Mickey Thompson wheels. The back bumper is black with tow hooks. The soft top is Tan, or Honey colored as the factory called it, made by BesTop. There is also a black vinyl bikini top that is fun to install for summer cruising, and the roll bars are wrapped with BesTop honey colored padding too. While mostly stock, its plain to see that this CJ sits up a bit with about 3 inches of lift on those 33x12.50x15s and there is a spare tire mounted on the back wrapped up in its own cover.

The Honey colored interior of this CJ is super clean and mostly stock except for a couple nice additions. The original factory high back bucket seats are covered in the comfortable Vinyl-Denim material as is the bench seat in the back. There is a three spoke steering wheel with controls and engine gauges set in a black panel mounted in the center of the white dash. There is a grab handle over the glove box on the passenger side and the floor has had a coat of black Rhino-liner applied which was done well, looks great, and has heavy duty Jeep floor mats over it. The shifter for the manual transmission as well as the transfer case is mounted in the floor and a lockable, aftermarket Tuffy center console houses an AM/FM/CD radio which is also Bluetooth and iPod compatible. The speakers are mounted on the sides in the back and integrated with a cup holder for your back-seat passengers.

The engine and drivetrain appear to be original to the Jeep with the engine and transmission showing signs of having been gone through and rebuilt with new seals and gaskets and nicely reinstalled with the wiring neatly routed and in order. The engine is the tried and true 4.2 liter in-line 6-cylinder engine with an aftermarket air filter sitting on top of the two-barrel carb that makes such good low-end power. The transmission is a 5-speed manual Borg Warner unit which feeds power back through a Dana 300 transfer case and then out to an AMC 20 rear axle and a Dana 30 front axle. This Jeep runs extremely well, shifts smoothly, and runs down road great. Power steering and power front disc brakes provide the confidence to take on city traffic, or off-road adventures. New shocks were installed all around as part of the restoration and a Magnaflow muffler adds its voice to the mix. The rubber meets the road (or the dirt) through those white lettered 33x12.50R15 Goodyear Wrangler tires.

Well rested after a 20-year nap and fully awake now with a couple nice upgrades, this great driving, low mileage CJ7 Renegade could be yours.
