1985 Jeep CJ-8 Scrambler
History
A long wheelbase version of the CJ-7, the Jeep CJ-8 was introduced in 1981 and manufactured through 1986. The American Motor Company built the CJ-8, a 103-inch-wheelbase pickup with lots of rear overhang, as a replacement for the CJ-6. CJ-8s used the traditional transfer case with manual front-locking hubs to engage the four-wheel drive. During that time, most CJ-8s had either a four or five speed manual transmission, but three speed automatic transmissions were also optional.
For many Jeep enthusiasts, the CJ-8 is also known as the "Scrambler," which describes the appearance of the package in which many CJ-8s were presented, which included tape graphics and special wheels. The Jeep CJ-8 "Scrambler," is a limited edition classic and came in hard- or soft-top models. There were only 27,792 CJ-8s produced from 1981 to 1986 and only 2,015 in 1985.
(81-8,355 82-7,759 83-5,405 84-4,130 85-2,015 86-128).
Former President Ronald Reagan owned a CJ-8 and used it on his California Ranch.

This jeep has NO repairs to the tub and no rust thru, it has a solid frame, cab, body panels, without any cracks. Having said that, there are two areas in the back where it looked like at one time someone had added recessed tail lights and a whip style antenna. These two areas are behind the diamond plate, but can be seen on the inside of the bed. I cannot find welding having been done on any part of the tub or frame. It seems to be pretty clean.
86 CJ7 258 cu.in., had about 87,000 miles on it when installed. The odometer say 285xxx miles, but this may not be the original. The jeep certainly doesn't look like it has that many miles on it. I bought this jeep as a project so some parts were added prior to me buying it.

I will accept a bank to bank wire transfer or cash only. Call me to arrange for deposit and final payments and make sure you come and look at it.
Buy it and enjoy your new ride! I know I have and I'm really sorry to see it go. I bought this as a project and the only things left are some leaks. For example the oil pan and the transfer case, but we've sold the farm and I need to liquidate. This is the only vehicle left to sell
