For Sale: 1978 Jeep CJ7 in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

Awesome paint, an upgraded fuel-injected V8 motor, four-on-the-floor, and a robust presentation inside and out come together on this 1978 Jeep CJ7 Renegade restomod to deliver a custom 4x4 that is equal parts style and substance. So dig into the details on a stunner that only has 1k miles on the build.

This Jeep has a recognizable style and quality from the moment it comes into view. The upgraded green paint has a deep gloss and smooth feel that is unmistakably a modern quality application. And the good body panels make for an excellent canvas for the paint. This quality color also makes for a good backdrop to showcase the Renegade graphics decal package. It all looks crisp and clean from a recent investment, but the colors all fit with the classic 1970s earthy vibe for a proper classic Jeep appearance. Plus, the added polished components add to the usefulness as well as the style. For example, the tubular front bumper looks awesome while also giving you a handy bull bar, and there's a trailer hitch welded into the rear one. There's more brightness showing off the side steps, rocker guards, tail light guards, and 15-inch wheels. And speaking of brightness, you have both LED headlights and KC Dayligher spotlights that can basically turn midnight into noon. Color-matched fender flares, the full-size spare, and the tall stance complete this very capable style. And the full soft top with doors fits well, has tinted windows, and is the right earthy tan look to harmonize with the full package. So this is quite a thoughtfully restored CJ.

A proper Jeep likes to be open to the world. So this restored interior is not only fresh, but they made sure it was absolutely rugged. That's why you have features like liner paint on the floor and deep channel rubber floor mats. And the Rugged Ridge upholstery looks good while also giving you a similar attractive tan as the soft top. It's a thoughtful setup with nice extras like a cup holder center console, an AM/FM stereo w/aux input, and upgraded stereo speakers. You even have provisions for R134a air conditioning (it likely just needs a recharge to blow cold again.) There's a tall floor shifter, a Jeep sports steering wheel on a tilt column, and a retro-style gauge package in the dash that now features a handy tach within the speedo.

The engine bay continues this Jeep's full fresh style, and the polished components add the right flair. Within all this shine is the substance of the powerful 304 cubic-inch V8. It has been topped with a FiTech electronic fuel injection system for the best in power and consistency. You also have a Davis United electronic ignition, an aluminum radiator, and shorty headers for an all-around strong-running powerhouse. The four-speed manual transmission gives you proper control over this upgraded motor. Plus, the two-speed 4x4 transfer case, lifted suspension, and BF Goodrich All-Terrain tires make for a terrific off-road package. But something this attractive is also just great for rolling through town. So there's power steering, power brakes, and front discs for an easy overall cruiser.

Powerful, rugged, and loaded - this Jeep is a full professional build that has the style and substance to be both at the head of the trail and in front at the valet stand. So if you want a classic CJ that's the best of everything, call today!
