This 1971 Jeep CJ5 Renegade offers an iconic classic appearance
with some terrific upgrades you want in a go-anywhere 4x4. But
while the features are great, we already know the value price has
This CJ already has a striking first impression. A bright silver
body combines with the blackout package of the black tubular
bumpers, roll bar, diamond plate rockers, fender flares, side
mirrors, tubular side steps, Renegade decals and trim to create a
cool two-tone style. The black turbine-style wheels add even more
distinction. Plus, this one seems to sit a little taller than the
rest. But more than just appearance, you're going to be attracted
to this one, because the iconic shape is built from a fiberglass
body. This means you don't worry about body corrosion whenever you
get into the deepest water traps around. And you might have noticed
from the pictures, this one has the kind of extra lights that show
you the way even if it's midnight in the wilderness.
Inside, the black and silver continues. Even the bikini top nicely
coordinates with the whole color theme. The front bucket seats have
a nice bolstering and all of them have a durable Black Mountain
covering. The dash is a full silver and black presentation, and it
contains everything from a full gauge package, to switches for the
extra lights. There's even an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input. So
this rugged Jeep also knows how to charge your cell phone.
Few people remember that the Buick V6 was available in the CJ5 for
a few years. That's why this motor fits so easily into the engine
bay. Since this has a lightweight body and the control of a
three-speed manual transmission, this unique Jeep feels peppy in
all situations. Plus, it's really fun to tilt the full front end
toward the windshield to show this off (and it's also terrific
access for any work you want to do.) Also, true to a Jeep, the
two-speed 4x4 transfer case combines with the short wheelbase and
good ground clearance to really let you get back to nature.
Classic Jeep looks and very handy upgrades combine at quite an
affordable price. So don't let's this total package deal slip away.
