FUEL INJECTED 4.0L MOTOR REBUILT, 3 INCH LIFT, 33 INCH M/T TIRES, SWEET JEEP!
We sell a lot of Jeeps, but we have to say that this 1985 Jeep CJ7 is one of the most well-rounded off-roaders we've ever featured. The big news is a modern fuel-injected 4.0 liter inline-six under the hood, but the clean paint, heavy-duty suspension, and comfortable interior all make this a 4x4 that you can use every day.
There aren't many better tools for going to remote places than the CJ7, and the design captures the best of the classic Jeep look without being too archaic. This one wears a recent white paint job that looks quite good on the upright 4x4, especially with some subtle graphics on the doors. It isn't perfect, but on a Jeep, perfection is kind of a silly notion because you'd be afraid to use it as intended. Nevertheless, it has a great shine, super clean bodywork, and a hood that fits well. The removable doors are a favorite Jeep feature, and when combined with the removable hardtop, you have the best of open-air motoring combined with all-weather security. Big tubular bumpers and matching steps on the sides give it a suitably butch off-road look and rubber fender flares cover the oversized tires. To complete the off-road look, there are safety cages over the taillights, a full-sized spare perched on the tailgate, and a pair of big off-road driving lights on the front bumper. If you can't get there in this Jeep, you probably shouldn't be going.
The interior is familiar Jeep with weatherproof materials and basic controls. However, that doesn't mean it's not user-friendly, with a custom center console with cup holders, recent neoprene seat covers, and a floor that's been covered with spray-in bedliner material so you can just hose it out after a day of fun. The custom 3-spoke steering wheel looks sporty and you'll note that with the engine transplant came some other niceties, including air conditioning and a 5-speed manual gearbox, making this a Jeep that's quite usable in the urban jungle. There's an AM/FM/cassette stereo in the dash along with the usual array of analog Jeep gauges and knobs, and for fun, you can lower the windshield for real in-your-face fun in the dirt. There's a cozy back seat for two and if you look carefully, you'll spot a pair of speakers tucked into the corners just ahead of the rear wheel wells.
Forget the old carbureted six, this one sports Jeep's famous 4.0 liter fuel-injected six, a mainstay of Jeep production throughout the '90s and '00s. It's a neat fit in the CJ's engine bay and all the electronics that made it such a reliable workhorse have been successfully transplanted. It almost looks OEM under the hood and offers easy service, plentiful parts supplies, and legendary reliability. A high-mounted air filter allows it to slog through some pretty deep stuff and the condition of the inner fenders and firewall suggest that this has always been a clean southern vehicle. The 5-speed manual makes this Jeep a comfortable freeway cruiser yet the 2-speed transfer case and 4.10 gears ensure that it's effortless in the rough as well. The front axle includes a TruTrac Dana 30 while there's a Detroit Locker inside the AMC20 rear axle, so it's not going to get stuck. The suspension offers a 2.5-inch lift, a 1-inch body lift which help accommodate those big 33x12.50-15 Mickey Thompson meats on 15x8 Centerline wheels.
Fully sorted and upgraded with all the important parts hardcore Jeepers look for, this CJ is ready to enjoy without a second thought. Call today!
