For Sale: 1982 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

Sleek paint, rugged features, and a hot-rodded version of a classic Jeep powerhouse make this 1982 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler an excellent and capable 4x4. So if you're quick enough to grab this one, you can skip doing all the detail work and go right to the fun part.

The distinction is this Scrambler's calling card. It has a bold Orange Metallic finish that has the kind of gloss and shine that will make you instantly stand out on the street or trail. And all that black trim and Scrambler stripe package goes excellent with the grille, wide fender flares, rock sliders, tubular side steps, hardtop roof, roll bar, tail light guards, and full rhino-lined bed. Add in the upgraded stance, meaty tires (including full-size spare,) Mickey Thompson beadlock wheels, and thick steel D-rings, and you'll decide that it's ready for off-road work no matter how pretty it is. But we also love a scrambler because its distinction goes down to its core. The face has the same CJ face that's at the bedrock of the SUV movement, but the production numbers are far rarer for this pickup than the other CJ siblings.

Inside, it has been given the suitable investments to be a great pickup. The driver and passenger get bucket seats that are covered in durable vinyl. There's also liner paint on the floor. So it's a robust setup ready for taking off the hardtop and doors to open this Jeep up to the world fully. It's also nicely equipped with a center console, a tilt steering column, and full gauges, including the upper-level tach and clock. And those switches under the dash for the air-locking hubs let you know this one loves to have fun.

One look under the hood, and you can tell there was plenty invested in keeping the engine bay looking and performing its best. AMC's 258 cubic-inch (4.2-liter) motor has been a long-standing reliable motor for Jeeps. This one has been hot-rodded with the best features for added power. It includes a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an Offenhauser intake, and headers. It makes for quite a healthy powerhouse, but you won't be thinking about this one for the quarter-mile. The extra muscle works with features like the low first gear on the four-speed to give you some serious torque right from the start. Add this to the tall ground clearance, two-speed 4x4 transfer case, air-locking hubs, and Nitto Mud Grappler tires for a capable machine. Power steering and front disc brakes are welcomed features on dirt and asphalt.

This Scrambler grabs attention wherever it goes, and since it's a go-anywhere classic Jeep, we know it will be going out of our showroom quickly. Call now!
