Cool upgrades meet with some original style, and it's all offered at an exceptional price. That's what makes this 1978 Jeep CJ5 Renegade such a hot ticket.

This Jeep is distinctive from the first moment you lay eyes on it. The Viper Red paint instantly conveys the modern investment in this classic icon. The black Renegade lettering is the perfect match for the darkly painted trim this 4x4 has to offer. After all, with the 15-inch Pacer wheels, bumpers, hood latches, windshield hinges, and iconic seven-slot grille all make for quite a striking package. You'll also enjoy a deep black presentation of the original touches that a true upgraded Renegade offers, like the fender flares and roll bar. Even the bikini top follows this color scheme. It's a total impression that looks just as good driving down High Street as it does exploring the high lands.

Use the Bully side steps to climb up into a world that merges new and iconic features. The full dark presentation looks great against the exterior red paint, and it also makes some important elements stand out, like the newer Equus gauges in the dash. Grip is important no matter if your hands are on the small diameter three-spoke steering wheel or the long handle shifter with cool skull shift knob. It's a sporty appearance that continues on the low-back bucket seats that look great from a recent investment in Rugged Ridge replacements. This one is setup exactly how you want an outdoor machine to be. That's why you have great upgrades like a lockable center console, and the marine-quality Pyle Hydra front speakers for the AM/FM/CD stereo. So security and durability are ensured in any convertible configuration.

This one even looks mean under the hood. The blacked-out presentation continues with a dark engine bay that contains a motor that prefers glossy black to chrome. But more than just look tough, the 304 cubic-inch AMC motor is that perfect power plant that combines V8 muscle with Jeep-level robustness. On the road, this total package gives you an extra wallop of power that you can control with the three-speed manual transmission. And it has the kind of rumble out of the header-fed side exhaust that will get you respect from muscle cars. On the trail, this V8 is a great partner with the sturdy 4x4 components like the two-speed transfer case and Dana 44 rear end. Add in power steering, front disc brakes, and the grip of General Grabber tires, and this is truly an unbeatable package.

Bold packaging, the right features, and V8 power – this is the CJ5 Renegade that lives up to its name. So you know a deal like this won't stay here for long. Call now!
