1978 Jeep Other Renegade Sport Utility 2-Door

This is a 1978 Jeep CJ-7 Renegade Levis Edition. It underwent a frame off restoration by a previous owner. The age of the restoration is unknown. Mileage is unknown. From what I have been able to gather from the past owner is that it was done about 5-10 years ago but driven very little as the owner who restored it passed away. I have made a few mechanical and cosmetic repairs and upgrades to bring it to close to perfection. It is in excellent condition. The frame was powder coated. Frame gets washed and dried with the jeep. The inside, firewall, and under side were painted with flat black when restored. It doesn't have rattle can spray paint all over everything to make it look clean. The engine and trans must have been rebuilt during the restoration although I do not have paperwork to confirm. They are in phenomenal working condition. I have owned many jeeps and none have run as perfect as this one. I recently installed a HEI distributor for increased performance and replaced all fluids and seals in the engine. The transfer case was also re-sealed. There are no drips on the garage floor. Jeep has been kept in an air conditioned garage.

They have very little wear and have no dry rot.Full soft top enclosure with soft doors. Allows for a full top instead of bikini top. Much cooler in the summer for everyone.Comes with a spare tire carrier. Not guarantying all parts are there. I will include what I have. It is not painted to match the jeep.Custom aluminum tailgate extender to make it have extra cargo space. See pic.Front floor matsNew center gauge cluster. Note the fuel and temp stopped working shortly after installed. I recommend replacing it with the speed hut center gauge that looks like original.New Heater core.Aftermarket oil pressure and battery gauge.Rock Sliders with step. No they do not cover up a rusted out jeep. I can remove them for pics if you would like.
Condition issues to disclose because I do not want someone to be unhappy....The inside has spray in bed liner. It does need to be touched up around the jeep. I believe its raptor bed liner based on past experience. This is the only thing I have not done to leave it up to the new owner if they want to line-x or touch it up. See pictures. The paint is in beautiful condition. There is a chip in the front grill and in the drivers side fender. Smaller than half a dime. Also, there is one impression left by the top in the back of the jeep above the tail light. It is 1 inch long by 1/8 inch high near where the top goes into the rail. See pictures. On the driver and passenger floor boards there are pot marks from past surface rust that could be sanded out prior to touching up line-x. They do not go through and are solid. They are strictly a cosmetic nuance. See pics.
Overall this Jeep is in amazing shape. Never been off road...that I can tell. Maintained by a Jeep only mechanic. He can attest to condition. Ready to go to car shows. Title in hand. Buyer pays for and arranges shipping. Will deliver within 100 miles. Please call with questions. (813) 220-3035
