Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is excited to offer this sharp 1981 Jeep CJ8. This 1981 Jeep Scrambler CJ8 is a sharp-looking 4x4. More than just stylish, you will love to discover that this has been LS swapped with a LQ4 6.0L V8. It makes for a better driver and makes it way more reliable. And there's even great paperwork to tell this Jeep's tale, too. So, the beauty of this Scrambler is far more than just skin deep. The iconic look of a CJ Jeep meets the utility of pickup - that is what makes the Scrambler so instantly attractive. But this one has much more going on here. The awesome Orange paint was given a high-quality respray. It has the kind of gloss and shine that really reminds you the advantages of discovering a well taken care of classic. Plus, the decal package is a comprehensive style that looks good against the deep orange. It highlights the style lines in the hood, fenders, and rockers. Plus, this two-tone complement the full brightwork package that includes the grille, bumpers, side mirrors, and 15-inch wheels (including the full-size spare in the bed.). This Jeep was born with desirable options, like the pricey hardtop and full doors. The interior shows more of the thoughtful care over the years. At first glance, it just looks like a preserved time capsule. But as you dig a little deeper, you see that the seats were reupholstered to look stock but are now a supple tan leather. The modern radio is put away in the center console. So, it makes it even better to open this one up to the world while driving all-day with your favorite music. A center console, tilt steering column, and a full set of new gauges - including tach - all make this a great driver. And as this Scrambler is, it still has all the right features for an outdoor lifestyle. It ranges from the rugged floor mats with deep channels to the safety of the color-matched roll bar. Under the hood is GM 6.0L LS Beast! This is quite a desirable powerplant because it has spent decades at the heart of the GM vehicle, and the presentation here is just as tidy and cared for as the rest of this Scrambler. You can tell from the full presentation that here has been a solid investment in the engine bay. But you will also see the right upgrades like Fox shocks and Dana 44 front and Dana 60 rear axle. The two-speed transfer case and 37X14.50 tires give you true 4x4 capability. But far more than just a mud slinger, this CJ8 has great anytime driving features like power steering, Wilwood power brakes, and front discs.
