This 1978 Jeep CJ7 Renegade really maximizes the ruggedness of this
iconic 4x4. That means upgraded V8 power, a lifted suspension, and
all the best exterior upgrades to make sure you're the one leading
on the trail.
The silver/gray color for this Jeep looks like it was formed from
rock, and the Renegade decals look like you struck gold. So
certainly has the right style for an outdoors machine. And on the
more practical side, we bet this won't show as much dust from a day
out on the trail. And that's something you better be thinking about
because a proper CJ is all about the off-road lifestyle. So this
one has plenty of upgrades that show it's meant for fun in nature.
You see this first up front with the beefy steel bumper that holds
the Smittybilt winch, high-lift jack, tow hooks, and spotlights.
This upgraded ruggedness continues with the Renegade's fender
flares that allow for those meaty tires. And we love both the look
and the robustness of the extra armor body panels that wrap around
the rear. That leads to another strong black steel bumper with tow
hooks, a trailer hitch, and a full-size spare.
The interior is nicely appointed for both added comfort and
ruggedness. That may seem like opposites, but you understand what
it means when you sit in the high-back bucket seats. They are
robust Bestop units with nice bolstering. You also have shoulder
belts on the roll bar and a lockbox armrest center console with cup
holders in-between. And the radio has been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD
unit with USB and Bluetooth. There are the right driver features
with the classic three-spoke steering wheel, nice action on the
shifters, and gull gauges with a proper tach. And what you're
likely going to enjoy the most is all the freedom to choose how
open you want to be to the world. There are removable half doors,
soft door tops, a bikini top, and a full convertible roof (minus
the easily sourceable frame.)
Under the hood is AMC's big 360 cubic-inch V8. This is larger than
anything that was offered from the factory, and so that would often
be enough muscle for most people. But this one takes it further
with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake,
aluminum, and long tube headers feeding the side exhaust. The
four-speed manual transmission gives you proper control over this
upgraded powerhouse, and the full package delivers the kind of
torque that secures the CJ7's go-anywhere reputation. On the trail,
this stout V8 is a great partner with 4x4 components like the
two-speed transfer case, lifted suspension, and an awesome set of
Falken Wildpeak all-terrain tires. But as you look at the upgraded
off-road components in the undercarriage photos, you can see a
fresher style that gives this one added confidence in all
conditions. So the power steering, power brakes, and front disc
brakes make for a good in-town cruiser, too.
Complete with owner's manual, this Jeep has both eye-catching
appeal and all the right hardy upgrades to lead the pack. It's the
best of style and substance. Call today!!!
