Showing up at the next Jeep Jamboree in this 1984 Scrambler is going to generate a TON of attention. From the relative rarity of the body style to the thumping ultra-clean engine bay, this well-done, frame-off restored 4x4 is the Jeep that everyone's going to be talking about out on the trail.

Stretching a CJ7 into a mini pickup truck was a clever idea that never quite caught on, making it rather unusual to see a Scrambler today. And what you almost never see are Scramblers restored to this level, making it almost too pretty to risk out in the rough. The bright orange paint gives it a brilliant, almost iridescent look and even with the squared-off bodywork, it's pretty slick. Underneath, the sheetmetal is in great shape with no signs of the usual tin worm issues that can plague these cool little trucklets, and it's been carefully assembled so the fit is better than you'd expect. Scrambler is spelled out on the hood, as if you needed that to know what this is, and it has accessories like chrome bumpers, a matching grille and hinges, and a spare tire hanging off the tailgate in back. The roll bar has been neatly wrapped in tailored pads and the bed itself is covered in spray-on bedliner material, so it's tough enough for anything you can fit in there. When you're heading out with all your gear, THIS is the truck that everyone's going to wish they owned.

Thoroughly freshened, the interior is more 21st century than many of this Jeep's peers. High-back buckets are awesome for crawling over rough terrain, holding you in place while being comfortable enough for all-day drives. The floor is lined with the same spray-in bedliner material used out back, so it's low maintenance and you can just about hose it out when you get home. A center console adds security and that upholstery just looks cool in a '70s kind of way. Other desirable features include a tilt column, a chrome gauge panel, and Jeep-logo floor mats. The other gauges are in excellent shape, including the tach nestled into the dash next to the steering wheel. A brand new bikini top and half doors are included, along with a rear bench seat that makes this a legitimate 4-seater that can still carry a decent load of cargo at the same time.

The 258 cubic inch inline-six under the hood pretty much guarantees there's no mountain you can't climb. Legendary for its reliability and easy torque production, this is the engine that made the CJ series famous. It's impressively clean and well detailed under the hood, suggesting that it's never seen really dirty trails and a few chrome dress-up pieces and an oversized radiator are welcome additions. Long-tube headers help the six breathe a little better and give it a snarky exhaust note thanks to a Flowmaster muffler in back. The 4-speed shifter is a lot of fun to row through the gears and a heavy-duty suspension gives it the ground clearance to really articulate over the terrain. You'll be impressed by how tidy it is underneath, so clean that you'll have second thoughts about using it as intended. Those huge BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires are brand new and wrap around handsome aluminum wheels that are the perfect complement to the show-stopping orange paint.

Highly visible and capable, this has got to be one of the best Scramblers in the world. Try building one to this level and you'll find that the asking price is a screaming bargain. Call today!
