NUT-&-BOLT, TUB-OFF RESTO, RECENTLY COMPLETED, 258 I6, 5-SPEED, HARD DOORS/TOP!!
Showing up at the next Jeep Jamboree in this 1984 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler is going to generate a TON of attention. From the relative rarity of the body style to the spectacular restoration, this well-done 4x4 is the Jeep that everyone's going to be talking about out on the trail.
Stretching a Jeep 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 beautiful burgundy paint gives it a smooth, 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 gaps are 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 big nicely restored bumpers, a chrome grille, and a heavy-duty spare tire mount out back. The roll bar has been color-matched to the body 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 updated, 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 painted to match the bodywork, so it's very attractive, but it's also protected by a set of heavy-duty floor mats so you don't have to worry. A locking center console adds a pair of cup holders and some secure storage, as well as a comfortable place to rest your arm. The factory gauges are in excellent original condition and the knobs on both the 5-speed manual transmission and 2-speed transfer case have a consistent look. Like any Jeep, the doors and top are removable for a full open-air experience, but it also seals up quite well and offers decent comfort when it's all sealed up, making this a no-compromises rock crawler that's equally at home on the street.
The rugged, reliable, torquey 258 cubic inch inline-6 under the hood pretty much guarantees there's no mountain you can't climb. Built for going into the wilderness, the stout six makes this Scrambler feel like it could climb a wall and still makes sense in this day and age. It's impressively clean and well detailed under the hood, suggesting that it's never seen really dirty trails and all the original equipment is intact, from the heavy-duty air cleaner to the heavy-duty radiator up front, built for low-speed climbing. The 5-speed shifter is a lot of fun to row through the gears and a set of Rancho shocks and a modest lift give it the ground clearance to really articulate over the terrain. You'll be impressed by how nicely finished it is underneath, making this a Jeep you can enjoy without worries although you might not want to risk getting it dirty. Those 33x12.5R15 Mickey Thompson tires are brand new and wrap around handsome chrome wheels.
Tasteful 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 even at this price, it's a real bargain. Call today!
