Here's a 1985 Jeep CJ7 that has been built for proper Jeep fun. And
more than just a go-anywhere 4x4, this one seems to have that extra
level of shine that really looks good rolling through town,
The green paint looks like it could blend with nature, but there's
also a nice luster that shows this is an upgrade later in life.
It's also the perfect complementing color to the black pinstripe,
mirrors, and windshield rubber. In fact, there are more dark
elements that also add to this CJ's utility. The custom front
bumper, tubular side steps, fender flares, and custom rear bumper
with trailer hitch all have a cool look and add to the usefulness
we all want in a 4x4 like this. But it's not just the blackout side
that shows off-road prowess. You have bright 15-inch Cragar wheels
(including full-size spare) that hold meaty tires and show off the
lifted suspension. Plus, the iconic CJ shape is built with a
fiberglass body. This means you don't worry about body corrosion
whenever you get into the deepest water traps around.
You have a full set of soft doors and the choice of a bikini top or
a full soft top. With all of this done in black, it gives the
exterior the look of a two-tone. But we really know Jeeps are meant
to be open to the world. So there's plenty more darkness inside as
this one mixes vintage pieces with newer elements. For example, the
classic low-back front bucket seats have newer covers and shoulder
belts. You'll also appreciate comfortable upgrades like the cup
holders, center console, good carpeting, and an AM/FM stereo with
USB input and Bluetooth. The driver gets a grippy Jeep's steering
wheel, and beyond that, the dash has the CJ's central mounted
speedometer and all the right supporting gauges. This includes a
tach that's quite useful with the stick shift.
We like how the full front end lifts up for added distinction and
excellent access to the full motor. Jeep's six-cylinder engines are
true torque kings, and so it's great to have the 232 cubic-inch
unit under the hood. It has a clean look of good maintenance, and
it runs well with the inherent smooth nature of the inline-six.
There's even an aluminum radiator to help keep everything cool. And
you take proper control over it all with the four-speed manual
transmission. A two-speed transfer case, lifted suspension, and
General Grabber off-road tires make for a good 4x4. But this also
has power steering, power brakes, and front discs for all-around
Classic Jeep style and very handy upgrades combine at quite an
affordable price. So don't let this total package deal slip away.
