For Sale: 1980 Jeep CJ5 in Lithia Springs, Georgia


Vehicle Description

The 1980 Jeep CJ5 is one rugged machine. This is a lifted 4x4 with beefy accessories, and it's presented in the kind of outdoor-ready look that gives the classic CJ an everlasting appeal. And when you see the big investment in fuel-injected V8 power, you'll know this is a go-anywhere machine that really has the muscle you want.

This Jeep was given a full body-off restoration in 2017. It was done by the masters at CJ Jeep Builders, and there was a $23k investment in just the parts and labor. The result is a mean machine with the components to back up its intimidating style. This attitude starts with the paint. Black is always great when you want to be a bit more aggressive, but this really turns it up a notch. It's rugged bedliner paint. It was done with a professional hand to make sure it looks equal parts tough and stylish. The black is also tasteful against the premium Laredo silver graphics as well as polished pieces like grille, bumpers, rockers, and upgraded hood clamps. Plus, the bright 15-inch Pro Comp wheels add to the flair and the off-road prowess. And speaking of off-road ability, you can see this one has all the right pieces, like the lifted suspension, side steps, fender flares, full size spare, and 9500lbs Smittybilt winch that's designed to get you and everyone else out of trouble.

The black theme continues inside with the same thoughtfulness as the exterior. So while this has a rugged look, it also doesn't miss out on the right features to keep you happy. That's why you have a newer set of Corbeau high-back bucket seats with good bolstering, a tilt steering column, an armrest center console, deep/rugged floor mats, and Corbeau rear bench for guests to come along for the fun. While this one was made for the outdoor lifestyle, there's also a bikini top that stretches over the roll bar for those times when you want to keep the sunshine off your shoulders. There's even a set of soft doors that can come with the sale, too. And probably our favorite part of the build is the dash. It has a very stock style at first glance, but soon you realize that the gauges are an upgraded set that include a digital odometer and handy tach. And the radio is a retro-style unit that has modern Bluetooth and upgraded stereo speakers.

The 360 cubic inch V8 nestled under the hood has a very clean look, because it was all part of the big restoration investment. We love the tidy black appearance that includes the powder coated intake, Edelbrock air grabber, and matching finned valve covers. Plus, it's a well-built package with an Edelbrock intake, custom headers, and topped with a FiTech fuel-injection system that adds power and consistency to this already hardy motor. You'll even spot good supporting components, like the electronic ignition, Powermaster alternator, Optima battery, and an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. The mighty V8 fires up readily and has the sweet and powerful rumble of a nice cam. And you get full control thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. This is has been built to be a quality 4x4, and so you have the right pieces, like a Dana 300 transfer case, Dana 30 front axle, AMC 20 rear, two-inch body lift, one-inch suspension lift, and a wide set of BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain T/As. Plus you have a good feeling for all-around control thanks to power steering, power brakes, front discs, and newer polyurethane bushings.

Complete with Build receipts and Service manuals, this CJ5 has a robust style that looks terrific on the street and trail. So you know you want to grab the ultimate classic 4x4. Call today!!!
