1985 Jeep CJ 7 Renegade

Rarely do you get the opportunity to purchase a restored classic CJ at such a value price. But beyond the fresh paint and interior, this 1985 Jeep CJ7 has been upgraded to a performance small block Chevy V8 to remind you that this 4x4 is still the king of the trails.The CJ7 is the quintessential Jeep, combining the classic upright grille, topless fun, and a rugged but friendly demeanor. The Renegade was the top-of-the-line and it looks the part, especially dressed in a Cobalt-like blue, with blue and orange accents. Even the black coordinates nicely with the fender flares, fog light covers, side mirrors and bikini top all providing a good-looking dark touch. This kind of overall presentation could be considered upper class if this lifted Jeep wasn't so obviously ready to get down-n-dirty too. After all, a Jeep's only real jewelry is the full-size rear-mounted spare tire.Because owning a Jeep is an outdoor experience, this one pays special attention to matching the interior with the exterior. Nearly everything looks new, including the rugged black vinyl seating. The front buckets are comfortable on the trail, and when it's time to go out on the town, they are sharp. Plus, the rugged black floor mats mean you can still clean out this Jeep with a garden hose. You'll slip behind the grippy sports steering wheel, and between the power steering and the easy to reach gearstick, any terrain is a breeze. Plus, the original gauge package is bright and clear against the blue panel, so you always know where you stand, even out on the trail.The original motor in the CJ7 left a lot of room for improvement, so it was swapped for a desireable 350 cubic inches of Chevy V8 power. This nearly bulletproof powerplant is almost infinitely upgradeable, which is why it already benefits from performance components such as an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, and performance headers. It cackles to life through a throaty Flowmaster dual exhaust system that gives this Jeep a hint of muscle car growl. There's even an aluminum radiator to make sure this upgrade stays cool. CJ7s are the off road kings, so the four-speed manual transmission is linked to a two-speed transfer case for true 4x4 ability. The ground clearance gives the suspension plenty travel when it really counts, and the BF Goodrich All-Terrain tires are engineered to find traction on any surface. Stopping is also well in hand with front disc brakes.The CJ7 is an enduring icon that always has a place in enthusiast's hearts. So when you can get your hands on a great looking, upgraded power, and recently restored example (photos included) for such an affordable price, well then, you know this deal will be leaving us soon.
