Nothing says, "I'll go anywhere" quite like a Jeep CJ7, especially one with substantial upgrades under the skin. V8 power, an upgraded suspension, and a full cosmetic makeover make this 1976 Jeep CJ7 Renegade the ultimate way to get dirty.
It might just be the most recognizable automobile in the entire world. It has been on every continent and crossed the most forbidding lands in the world. Even more than 40 years after it arrived on the scene, the evergreen Jeep has kept its rugged good looks. Someone spent big on this one, restoring it to almost new condition cosmetically, including the gorgeous red paint and black Renegade graphics. CJ7s were notorious for rusting, particularly around the rear of the body, but this one was spared that fate thanks to a lifetime someplace warm. The paint is nice enough that you'll probably think twice about plunging into the brush with it, but you'll definitely have the hardware to get wherever you need to go. Sure, there are a few nicks and scratches, but at least you won't be the first one to mark the paint. Accessories include a chrome front bumper, matching step plates, crystal headlights, plus a mesh grille that does little to disguise the Jeep's timeless looks but keeps the bugs out of the radiator.
WWII GIs would have killed for an interior like this in their Jeeps, but it remains simple and durable in the best off-roading tradition. New BesTop seat covers actually look expensive and upscale, yet wash off with a hose. The dash is a single sheet of brushed stainless steel with all the original gauges reinstalled (plus a few extras), so it has a clean look that's 100% Jeep. Shockingly, this Jeep also offers a fantastic Kenwood custom stereo system with Pioneer all-weather speakers, a tilt steering column with the original wheel, and a custom shifter for the manual gearbox, so it's hardly a hardship to drive it daily. Spray-on bedliner material protects the floors so there's no denying that it's still basic and rugged. For some protection from the elements, it also includes a bikini top and matching half doors for inclement weather.
Mechanically, this Jeep is virtually invincible. The engine you want is the rugged, torquey AMC 304 cubic inch V8, although this one has a few welcome upgrades. Up top, there's an Edelbrock carburetor and intake, a chrome air cleaner, and a factory-style ignition system. A big radiator keeps it cool when you're just crawling and it sounds awesome with a true dual exhaust system that dumps out the sides. Power steering and power brakes mean that the big tires don't hinder on-road performance and it's very user-friendly in the dirt. The factory manual transmission is linked to a 2-speed transfer case and heavy-duty axles front and rear, and you'll note that the suspension offers an additional few inches of lift thanks to a lift kit and a set of beefy shocks, a steering stabilizer, and a rebuilt front suspension to guarantee traction in the rough. Cool black wheels simulate the bead-lock look and wear massive 35x12.50-15 General off-road tires to complete the go-anywhere look
