1985 Jeep CJ

Up for sale is an awesome Jeep CJ8 Scrambler. If you are looking for a showpiece this one is not for you. But if you want a Jeep that is ready for the trail or road that needs nothing, this ones for you!

Features a hard top and hard doors. I believe it has a painless wiring harness. The doors have repairs on them and to be honest, not very good repairs!

Under the hood it a small block Chevy 350, a Proform 4 barrel carb, Hedman headers, HEI, Optima battery, new alternator, new brake booster and master cylinder. It is matched up to a 4 speed transmission.

The axles are both Dana 44s, with disc brakes all the way around. Im not sure of the gear ratio but I think its 4.56 because its really low. Don't expect to drive down the highway at 75! The tires are Goodyear 35x12.50 x 17 and are in amazing shape. I have a BFG spare that is around 50% tread. In the front and rear is an ARB locker with a compressor under the hood. I can include an air tank for you to install if you like.

The Jeep has a small body lift and I believe a 4 inch suspension lift. The Warn winch has no cable, control cord, and the motor is shot. It basically there just for mock up.

The inside features 2 bucket seats with very nice covers, 4 point Simpson seat belt, locking center console, upgraded gauges and steering wheel. The heater and defroster work. No radio. The wipers have stopped working and Im not sure why. I'll try to look into it.

Now the question you have been asking the whole time....rust. Yes it has rust in the bed and rust on the driver floor pan. The previous owner put in a floor pan but didn't cut out the old one. There are Rugged Ridge floor mats to cover it.

Not pictured is a spare tire, air tank, Rugged Ridge floor mats, extra new wiper blades.

So lets recap the negative: Rust on floor and bed, tailgate misaligned, wipers not working, winch not connected or working. Not sure if the paint was brushed or rolled on. Poorly repaired doors. Also doors lock but I do not have the key.

Having said all that you could drive this Jeep all over the world today without putting a dime into it. Put a little work into it and you will take a great Jeep and turn it into an awesome Jeep. Unknown Mileage on motor but it runs like a champ.

$500 non refundable deposit is due upon purchase and the remainder will bepaid as a check or cash. If you pay by check, the Jeep will not be released until it clears. You are responsible for shipping but I will assist your shipper in any way I can, helping load, etc... An enclosed trailer may not work for transport as this Jeep is 6'9" tall and about 78" wide. Feel free to ask questions. Im sure I forgot something.
