1979 Jeep CJ CJ7
Complete custom restoration, retains the best of what Jeep has to offer but replaced or upgraded the weaker links that plague all Jeeps. This Jeep needs nothing, is ready to drive across the country, and prepared to take on any trail along the way. Always garaged since purchased. Frame off rebuild included bead blasting the frame then sealed with black Imron process, Body was disassembled stripped and repainted Harley Davidson teal with custom artwork, it looks show but it was built for fun! All hoses, lines, and brackets were replaced. When this Jeep fires up you know it's something special by the way it sounds from the custom exhaust from and custom built 4.2 engine with Mopar performance kit & fuel injection added, not an aftermarket kit. Engine was completely rebuilt to the highest standard with all parts painted, powder coated, or chromed. The drivetrain was also completely disassembled and rebuilt to the same standard. 3.50 :1 gears for good highwayspeed in the diffs,241 transfer case with a 2.7:1 low range,Dana 30 in front with Motomaster u-joints, Superwinch hubs and the ARB locker. Model 20 in the rear with Summers brothers 1 piece axles, ARB, CV joint drive lines, 1" brake drums added to the rear, disc in front with a dual diaphragm GM power booster makes it stop better than Jeep ever imagined, 35" Dick Cepek Baja Claws, with full size spare, custom painted Neeper Diablo rims,sway bar dissconnects, Currie Brothers axle U-bolts & skid plates, 400 turbo automatic with a bullet proof rebuild, upgrade and deep sump aluminum pan.

The interior is all custom, seats are custom upholstered from a Wrangler with matching fold up rear seat, the front seats are showing some wear. Custom locking center console with CB and cup holders. The whole Jeep was built by the owner of a 4X4 shop out of NM, who managed a transmission shop prior to starting one of the most acclaimed 4X4 shops in the southwest. The same guys that built many of the trails in Chokecherry Canyon had their machines built, upgraded, or modified at All Wheel Drive. Built for his daughter it got the best of everything, and ended up on the cover of Four Wheel Drive magazine when they came out to a rock crawling event. Although it hasn't seen many miles since then it has been meticulously maintained with all synthetic Amsoil & BG fluids, and anything else it ever needed. A two inch poly body lift was added to accommodate the 35" tires with new 9000 adjustable shocks, comes with extra variable ratio steering gear box, and custom engineered swivel tow bar. New Jeep ECM to better match the application. There are some stone chips and scratches but absolutely no rust anywhere and clean as they come. Too many upgrades and new parts to list. The $20K investment did not include labor. When your building something to be the best and enjoy doing it we call that a labor of love! I think the funds from the sale went to a college education. The Jeep was sold for $20K before the latest improvements and worth every penny. After looking at some of the prices of similar modified or restored Jeeps I can honestly say you can get way more bang for your buck here! It's like taking a fully restored Jeep, then making it bullet proof, then you have to spend the funds on a nice paint job to finish the job. All the paperwork goes with and a new 4 Wheel Drive magazine! Priced lower than ever as it must sell, there is no reserve on this auction so you are bidding to buy. Since the original purchase it's been in a collection in Golden, Co.and that's where it will ship from.
