1981 Jeep CJ

It doesn't get much better than a classic 4x4 with a terrific color combo and fuel-injected V8 power. That makes this 1981 Jeep CJ5 the coolest go-anywhere classic you can pick up for under $20k.The deep green paint gives this Jeep a look like it could hide among the pine trees, and when parked downtown, this CJ5 feels like it's itching for an adventure. And that's really the point of owning a classic like this. You can take it to the beach or into the backwoods, but for those times with its just part of the grocery run, the rest of us in the parking lot are wondering what journey you'll be off to next. And since this adventurer is still an American classic, there's plenty of room for attractive brightwork on places like the diamond plate front bumper, side mirrors, and those five-spoke off-road wheels. As much as we like how the deep, dark black soft top and doors look against the green, it looks even better when you take these off. That's because the tan interior coordinates nicely with the earthy tones of the exterior. While the bucket seats are covered in a durable vinyl, they are comfortable enough to make the trail an easy ride. In between is a latching center console that provides both comfort and security. The controls are laid out in typical Jeep fashion, with an upgraded grippy three-spoke steering wheel, long-throw shifter for the four-speed manual, and a shorter stalk for the four-wheel drive. Plus, heater controls and gauges clustered in the center of the dash. While all of this has that great classic Jeep appearance, there are also some nice upgrades like the provision for an AM/FM/CD stereo for comfort, and a full roll cage for added safety with your utility.When you're looking for the most flexibility and usability, it's hard to beat the 304 cubic-inch V8. This was the top engine option from the factory, and it has been enhanced even further with fuel injection. That means extra power and torque for the trail, as well as a sweet rumble with the Hedman headers feeding the dual exhaust. 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 over 75 years. Power steering and front disc brakes help maintain control for those wicked trails. Plus, the large Kelly Safari MSR tires are great for those days when you take the highway well beyond where it ends.Complete with owner's manual, this is a distinctive and powerful turnkey 4x4 for an affordable price. So you know a package this attractive is going to be leaving us soon. Call today!!!
