1977 Jeep CJ

I'm sure the modern Jeep Wrangler is a heck of an off-roader, but even though they've tried to copy the look, it's impossible to replicate the ideal proportions and traditional look of the CJ7. And if you're looking for one that is truly "trail rated" and ready to get dirty, then this 1977 Jeep CJ7 deserves a closer inspection.First off, this CJ is still made of steel, not a fiberglass tub, which makes a difference to real Jeep aficionados. Like many of its siblings, this one got a long list of upgrades that only enhanced what was already a very capable package. The look is unmistakable, but it's pure Jeep taken to the next level. The silver paint is OK, but you already know you aren't buying this Jeep because it's a trailer queen. Silver may or may not be its original color, but at this point it doesn't really matter because it's been thoroughly vetted and upgraded to handle the rough stuff. The cool stripe down the center of the hood shows some real artistic talent and does nothing to diminish its off-road cred. Big fender flares cover the wide by huge tires, a stainless grille dresses it up, and the heavy-duty polished diamond-plate accents are more than just pretty, they reinforce critical areas of the Jeep's tub. There's a set of tubular steps that help you climb aboard and there's no mistaking the familiar Jeep face that's elemental in its simplicity.The black and gray interior looks freshened, too, with seat covers that are in excellent condition, a few well-chosen upgrades, and a back seat that can carry two folks who really, really like each other. Durable floor coverings mean you can hose it out when you get home from a day in the sun and there's a custom brushed stainless gauge panel framing a combination of aftermarket and original factory gauges. Other upgrades include a locking Bestop center console, a JVC AM/FM/CD stereo system, color-matched silver knobs, and a fat Grant steering wheel that looks great. There's a custom shifter to manage the 4-speed manual transmission, and in the rough there's a matching shifter for the 2-speed transfer case. For weather protection there's a full top and doors, as well as a bikini top that at least keeps the sun off you and the worst of the rain.The engine is AMC's torquey 258 cubic inch inline-six that powered Jeeps for most of a generation. Upgrades include an HEI ignition system, but there's not much else, so reliability is uncompromised. Looking around you'll see that it's been nicely maintained throughout its life and there's just about nothing made by man that's as reliable as this motor. Power steering is probably mandatory on something with tires this big, and the suspension was built for off-road duty and includes a set of new shocks and a heavy-duty steering stabilizer. Both axles are factory units, so they're burly enough for the rough and there's enough gear inside to make the big tires feel agile, even on surface streets. Giant 31x10.50-15 Toyo off-road radials have been stuffed onto a set of shiny aluminum wheels to complete the look.We sell a lot of CJs but rarely do we find one that suggests so much fun. Yes, there are perfect Jeeps out there, but if you like to get dirty and have a little fun, this CJ7 is calling your name. Call today!
