CHEVY 350 V8, 5 SPD MANUAL TRANS, RECENT MAINTENANCE & UPGRADES, NICE SCRAMBLER!
What's that you say? You need the go-anywhere utility of a Jeep CJ7 but would like a little bit of carrying capacity to go with it? Well then step right up, because this awesome 1984 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler delivers in a big way.
We have receipts adding up to about $4000 just in the last year, making this is one of the better Scramblers we've seen in a long time. The handsome copper paint is very much in fashion today, unlike all the brown and orange versions you saw running around back when they were new, and it fits the Scrambler just fine. Fender flares help cover the fat off-road tires and look great on the classic body, and a custom hardtop and steel doors add some practicality to a machine otherwise intended for pure fun (a bikini soft top is also included). Note the addition of a chrome grille, tubular step bars, taillight guards, and heavy duty front and rear bumpers with tow hooks that make this Jeep look ready to tackle just about anything.
The interior is basic, as you'd expect, able to keep you firmly in place during serious off-road adventures, but made of durable materials that can be hosed off and ready to go in a matter of minutes. The bucket seats are new additions that look perfect in the vintage Jeep, and it appears that the floors have been finished with spray-on bedliner material, so they're just about bulletproof. Those steel doors feature padded door panels and vent windows that offer some civility that the original canvas doors may have lacked. The original gauges are still in place in the flat, simple dashboard, augmented by the usual auxiliary gauges to better watch the engine's vitals, and there's a recent Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo head unit in the center. You'll also find an under-dash A/C unit that's fully functional, so it'll help keep you cool on the trails, top or no top. A fat wood-rimmed wheel is easy to grip and looks a lot better than the original, and the shifter now manages five forward gears instead of four, but we'll get to that in a moment.
Power is never an issue for this Scrambler, thanks to the professionally-installed 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 under the hood. Looking like it was born there, the brawny V8 delivers neck-snapping acceleration as well as the ability to climb just about anything on the trail when combined with the Jeep's 2-speed transfer case and 4-wheel drive system. An Edelbrock intake, 4-barrel carburetor, and a fresh dual exhaust system help build horsepower without making it too radical to climb trails at walking speeds. The suspension has been lifted four inches with a lot of new suspension components, and it's remarkably clean under there for such a capable off-roader. A 5-speed manual transmission gives you an overdrive gear, so highway cruising is relaxed, and the two-speed transfer case and heavy-duty axles make it trail-ready. It's fitted with handsome aluminum wheels wearing 33x12.5x15 BFGoodrich All-Terrain radials.
Sure, you could try to find one nicer and then spend $40 grand to build it, or you could just give us a call and take this one home today. Call now!
