For Sale: 1981 Jeep CJ7 in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

Metallic paint, an upgraded interior, and a fresh Chevy performance ZZ4 V8 under the hood means this 1981 Jeep CJ 7 is a 4x4 with flash AND substance.


You know this off-roader means business the moment you lay eyes on it. The bold copper-brown paint has a great metallic element that tells you there has been some serious investment in this Jeep. But at the same, time it doesn't betray the kind of earthtone that looks great on these trail kings. Plus, there's plenty of features you'll love for camping and off-road function, including the 2.5-inch Skyjacker lift in the suspension, proper Renegade-style fender flares, bright tubular side steps, front tow hooks, and a proper trailer hitch w/electric hookup on the rear. But even with all of this rough-n-ready appearance, this Jeep is also ready for a night on the town. The bright grille, front bumper, mirror mounts, hinges, rockers, and 15-inch alloys add a touch of class. You also get full doors, half doors, and a bikini top. So no matter if it's a night amongst the starts or a night on the town, this CJ is ready to impress.


Inside, the upgrades continue. It starts with a set of high-back bucket seats that have large headrests and terrific bolstering. In-between is a center console that features everything from lockable storage, to cup holders, to a kill switch. You'll also notice more practical upgrades, like the full harnesses for the rear seats and a more comprehensive safety cage. Plus, you have an upgraded AM/FM/XM stereo system that includes auxiliary inputs and Bluetooth. This has the classic Jeep gauges looking clean and clear. And with the addition of features like Hurst shifter and Suntune tach, it gives you a clear indication that there is something special under the hood.


For versatile power and limitless upgradeability, it's hard to beat the Chevy small block 350 V8. This is a fresh ZZ4 crate motor that's rated at 355 horsepower right out of the box. It includes aluminum high-flow heads, forged steel crankshaft, high-silicon pistons, and a hydraulic roller camshaft. It inhales deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and headers let it exhale with power. The four-speed manual transmission gives you the optimal control to harness this power on the street or trail. The two-speed 4x4 transfer case and BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/As (including full-size spare on the rear) are great for when the pavement ends. Plus, power steering and front disc brakes are great for everywhere.


Complete with owner's manual and maintenance records, this is a fresh, powerful, and all-around awesome CJ. So at a price like this, you know you need to hurry to catch this deal. Call today!!!
