VERY NICE, 304 V8, MANUAL, POWER FRONT DISCS & STEERING, 4X4, GREAT COLOR, CLEAN
It doesn't get much better than a classic Jeep with added off-road ability and V8 power. That makes this 1979 Jeep CJ7 the coolest piece of silver you can pick up for under $20k.
The hood announces the Renegade model, but this is more than just a trim level...It's an attitude. Trail-ready lifted suspension, Bimini top, and chunky truck tires make this instantly recognizable as an off-road rebel. Even with all this shining silver paint, there's still plenty of room for attractive chrome on the bumpers, front panel, and wheels. Possibly the best piece is the full-size spare mounted on the swing away rear hinge. It's essential for the times when you're miles from civilization, but in the city, this is great rear end jewelry. While this Jeep may appear to have a lone wolf attitude, you better be prepared for the social lifestyle that this 4x4 commands. Jeep enthusiasts wave to each other the way motorcyclists do, and everyone recognizes the iconic round headlights and seven-slot grille from blocks away.
Inside, the Jeep is basic as it was intended, but that also means it's virtually indestructible. The entire interior was designed to be cleaned up with a garden hose, and this one has been upgraded with a spray-on bedliner over the entire floor area for even more robustness. While the bucket seats are covered in a nearly bulletproof vinyl, they are comfortable enough to make the trail an easy ride. The controls are laid out in typical Jeep fashion, with a grippy three-spoke steering wheel, long-throw shifter for the three-speed manual, and heater controls and gauges clustered in the center of the dash. The AM/FM/cassette stereo has a complete analogue face for the period-correct feeling and added durability when things get wet or dusty inside.
In a no-nonsense Jeep like this one, the engine bay has a nice original feel. Power comes from a 304 cubic-inch V8 topped with a two-barrel carburetor. This was the top engine option from the factory, and its sound and torque will impress. But what will really make you want this Jeep is its trusty four-wheel drive system with two-speed transfer case. This sturdy setup is the backbone of Jeep's reputation for providing the military, and civilians, with 4x4 vehicles for nearly 75 years. Power steering and power brakes with discs up front help maintain control for those wicked trails. Plus, the large Kenda Klever M/T tires are the kind of upgrade you'd do before blazing your own path, but now you don't have to lay out that expense.
Tradition is alive and well for Jeep fans, and the CJ7 holds a very special place in the off-roading hall of fame. They have personality, rugged looks, and everyday fun that makes them a popular choice among 4x4 fans. Call now!!
