1979 Jeep CJ

Hello up for sale is my total custom CJ5 crawler built mainly by Southern Offroad in Pelham, L.

The Jeep is totally custom from front to back, ull roll cage, MC V8, :1 dual transfer case with custom front drive shaft, n board air and the list goes on at the bottom. The jeep has won a few amateur comps but for the last few years its just been sitting around, wice a year I fire it up and roll around but I’ve slowly come to realize she needs a new home. The jeep was built to be street legal in AL except for the beadlocks but I’ve never known any one to get a ticket for that.

I would definitely have the motor tuned and give everything a good once over before going very far but she fires right up and drives around the block just fine.

The jeep is sold as is, hich is running but it has been off the road for a few years sitting covered. She needs new bushings at a few of the shock mount points and the driver side rear brake bleed broke off while doing some maintenance. The air compressor works and builds pressure in the tank but it leaks out, hough i think it may be the accessory hose I used to check it, lso the passenger side seat has been used as a cat scratching post a few times.

The jeep was built with 37” tires in mind but we got a great deal on the 42"s and never looked back.

I have a set of rims with super small tires on them to so it can fit on a U-haul trailer or small car trailer.

I never had to get a tag for it cause I mostly took it to events or off road parks and a few places close by. It’s too old to have a title in Alabama but the bill of sale is the title here in AL, ve called the DMV to make sure its all one would need.

Any questions please ask.

I am selling it locally as well so i reserve the right to pull it.

Serious buyers only! I am in and out of town selling it so I got local friends and family who can help out with in person stuff. Local pick up only.
