For Sale: 1982 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

A cool icon meets rarity, 4x4 prowess, and A/C interior, and plenty of flair in this 1981 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler.


The Scrambler is one of those Jeeps that everyone likes to see. It takes the iconic lines of the CJs and gives it the longest body of the series. While the looks are unmistakably Jeep, it is also rarer than the CJ5s and CJ7s. It's this distinction that also explains where there have been plenty of investments in this one. The bright green is an older application but it continues to have a vibrant style that could almost glow in the dark. So while most shades of green would help a 4x4 blend in with nature, this electric level of lime makes sure this one stands out anywhere you go. And as the truck of Jeeps, this one can go virtually anywhere. It has very versatile upgrades like the spotlights up front with a Warn XD9000 winch in-between. Along the side are rock slider rockers, tubular steel side steps, and Dick Cepek wheels. The rear has liner paint in the bed and a trailer hitch. There's even a rear-facing seat back there that would be perfect for everything from fishing trips to drive-ins.


This comes with all the best roof/door configurations. That means a full hardtop and metal doors when you want a buttoned-up pickup. There's a bikini top to let you be open to the world while keeping the sunshine off your shoulders. Or the half doors, soft windows, and a windjammer backing go with the bikini top of an easy full convertible. And no matter how you choose to motor, this one also has the best features for on or off-road. After all, the cold-blowing air conditioning is welcomed everywhere you roam. There are dual bucket seats with wide side bolsters and full headsets. This also has an AM/FM/stereo with Bluetooth, a locking center console, and cup holders. There's an added roll cage in the car for added strength and safety. Plus, you have a grippy wood-rimmed steering wheel on a tilt column, a tall shifter, and clear gauges with handy tach.


Under the hood is the correct 258 cubic-inch (4.2-liter) inline-six. These motors have been mainstays in the Jeep family so it makes plenty of power and torque to keep you running on the trail. And speaking of the off-road, you have some terrific upgrades, like the air locking differentials, Rubicon extended struts, JKS suspension components, BF Goodrich All-Terrain tires, and a two-speed 4x4 transfer case. Plus, power steering, power brakes, and front discs are great for everywhere. And the five-speed manual transmission keeps you in complete control in all situations.


Complete with maintenance records, this Scrambler has the rarity, premium features, terrific top configurations, and true 4x4 ability that makes it a jack of all trades. So don't miss this deal. Call today!!!
