Mosing Motorcars is offering this 1977 Jeep CJ7 that was reported
to have been overhauled not long after the previous owner bought it
about 17 years ago. It is painted in John Deere Yellow and upgrades
include a suspension lift, 35? BFGoodrich mud tires, a custom roll
cage, 4.56:1 gears, onboard air, a winch, and more.
The reported body refurbishment included media blasting, floorboard
replacement, rust treatment, and application of two types of primer
followed by industrial-grade John Deere Yellow paint with two
layers of clear coat. There are various scratches and small dents
from off road trips as you would expect with a vehicle like
Further modifications include Warn rocker guards, a custom roll
cage with seat belt attachments, a MORE front bumper with a Warn
9000 winch, and a custom rear bumper with a swing-out spare tire
carrier. KC Daylighter off road lights are mounted up front along
with flush-mounted LED reverse and tail lights. BFGoodrich
Mud-Terrain tires are sized 35?x12.50? and mounted on 15? Ultra 164
aluminum wheels, including the spare.
The suspension has been modified to include Rancho 9000 adjustable
shocks, a Holbrook Specialties Long Leaf kit with polyurethane
bushings, and MORE shackles. The Brakes were upgraded to front and
rear discs, a custom booster and Navajo master cylinder, a
proportioning valve, and stainless front lines.
The cockpit has black vinyl front bucket seats and a lockable
center console and rear storage boxes by Tuffy. Further
modifications include an aftermarket steering wheel mounted to a
tilt column from a Jeep J20. A Cobra 29 LTD Classic CB radio is
mounted beneath the dash. The engine-driven York compressor will
fill a 2-gallon air tank and is controlled via a dash-mounted
switches including a pressure gauge and pneumatic switches for the
ARB air lockers. The odometer reads 71k miles but the true mileage
It is powered by a 304ci AMC V8 with a custom-modified GM throttle
body fuel injection system. There is a 20-gallon fuel tank with a
GM fuel pump. The electrical system has been upgraded with
harnesses from a Painless Wiring, and two Optima dry-cell batteries
are connected to a dual-insulator solenoid and control switch.
Power is sent to the rear or all four wheels through a rebuilt
3-speed automatic Turbo 400 transmission with a low-stall torque
converter and a Dana 300 transfer case with a 4:1 low gear kit and
Dana 44 differentials with 4.56:1 gears, ARB air lockers, and a
Warn full-floating rear hub lock kit.
A reported service in July 2018 by Holbrook Specialties in
Gladstone, Oregon replaced the rear differential bearings, ARB
ring, and O-rings.
