The Jeep CJ-8 Scrambler was a long wheelbase version of the CJ-7.
The wheelbase of the CJ-8 was extended to 103 inches and featured a
pick-up style box behind the rear seat. Introduced in 1981 and
manufactured through 1986, fewer than 30,000 total units were
produced and there are few nice CJ-8s around today. This 1985 Jeep
Scrambler is a fully restored example of this rare CJ model. The
body was refinished in Sebring Red w/correct Scrambler trim and it
is sharp. All body and floor pans are solid and the fiberglass cab
roof is removable. The bed has been fitted with a heavy-duty
multi-point roll bar, a Corbau bench seat, rear-mount spare and
wooden side rails. Both front and rear bumpers are chrome and
sidestep bars have been installed. Inside, the Corbeau bucket seats
are upholstered in black vinyl and a nice center console has been
installed. Other features include a Dual AM/FM/Bluetooth sound
system, custom door cards, Grant wheel and full Equus gauge package
w/tach. This Scrambler is powered by an AMC workhorse, the 258ci
4.2L straight-six that is virtually bulletproof. The 4.2 has been
fitted with a Weber 2-barrel carburetor setup, a popular
performance conversion for this generation Jeep. A 4-speed manual
transmission is mated to a 2wd/4wd/Hi-Lo Dana 300 transfer case and
manual front hubs. The chassis is equipped with power steering,
power disc/drum brakes, front/rear leaf spring suspension, new HD
shocks and steering stabilizer. Polished alloy wheels mount new
33x12.5Rx15LT Ironman All-Country radial tires. This CJ-8 is ready
for the new owner who will appreciate the great look and muscle of
this rare Jeep. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
