1979 Jeep CJ7 Renegade Levi's Package
Why This Car Is Special
In 1979, Jeep and it's then parent company AMD, offered a Special
Edition Package for the CJs, called The Renegade Levi's Package.
The package included jean-style vinyl padding on the dash and sun
visors, padded roof material similar to denim jeans, replica Levi's
stitching on the seats, and vinyl seat material that looked like
A Levi's badge sat above the Jeep lettering on the cowl. Buyers had
a choice of tan or blue materials for the interior and top. "The
Levi's Package was a brilliant marketing campaign. Levi's jeans
were known the world over," Jeep advertising said, pointing out
that it tied together two very American brands. Jeep offered the
package all the way until 1986.
We have one of those special Jeep's here at Adventure Classics. Our
Jeep CJ7 Levi's Renegade shows only a touch over 54,000 miles and
is ready to show, cruise or to hit the trails.
A 304 cubic inch V8 engine came as an option in our Jeep which is
well known for its reliability, good horsepower and fuel economy.
This engine not only has a great sound that lets everyone know it
is a V8 under the hood, but it appears to be entirely factory stock
with all the components it came with when it was brand new. The
engine is backed by a stout 4-speed manual transmission.
This Jeep had a V8 and a 4-speed from the factory, so it is capable
of handling the power. Four-wheel drive with power steering and
power brakes make this Jeep easy to control and just as comfortable
on the street as it is in the woods.
A lift kit has been added to fit the 33x12.50R15 BF Goodrich Mud
Terrain tires nicely under the body. They look great and add to the
capability of this CJ7.
The interior Jeep on this Jeep Levi is just as Jeep intended it,
utilitarian. You have the gauges you need to keep an eye on the
engine, the shifters for the transmission and transfer case, and a
couple of Levi's clad bucket seats in the front and two more in the
The interior area is painted in the body color matched paint of
blue and has the roll bar, rubber floor mats, custom stereo system,
and the Bimini top that provides shade for you and your
Bright Blue paint always looks good on a Jeep, and ours comes in
the Levi's Blue shade. It has the Blue Levi's Renegade decals on
the hood as well as Levi's lettering, decals, and lower side
This Jeep looks tough with the BF Goodrich All Terrain TA tires
mounted on chrome mag wheels with the lift kit needed to clearance
the big meats. It features fender flares on all four corners to
keep the mud off the paint.
A heavy-duty rear swing gate holds the spare tire in place and has
a custom tire cover over the spare tire.
The Jeep CJ or "Civilian Jeep" is the predecessor to the Jeep
Wrangler. They are tough, reliable and incredibly fun.
Whether you want a daily driver, a beach cruiser or a Jeep to
tackle tough trails and rock climbing, you just found it. This Jeep
CJ7 Levi's Edition Renegade was built to handle it all and it does
it with that rare package to boot.
