For Sale: 1979 Jeep CJ7 in Fairmont City, Illinois


Vehicle Description

For sale in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom is an awesome 1979 Jeep CJ-7. From the beginning, the CJ line of Jeeps were built for the sole purposes of utility and capability. They were go anywhere vehicles. Throw it at them, and they can handle it. Their simplicity, versatility, and performance led to a following bordering on fanaticism, and has produced many great Restomods such as the one before you here. Beginning in 2003, this CJ-7 has undergone a frame-up restoration. The parts list reads more like a dream build, and will satisfy even the most intense Jeep entusiast. The entire tub is new heavy duty fiberglass that has been reinforced with Kevlar for those particularly tough trails. Rhino Liner bed spray was used throughout the top side to protect the body from the inevitable abuse that a Jeep will see. The Dana 30 front and Dana 20 rear axles are more than up to the task of spinning the 33x12.5 General Grabber tires, and feature a Tom Woods Double Cardan driveshaft in the rear, and 2” driveshaft in the front. There is also a Dana 20 transfer case with the twin stick conversion. The transfer case and T-150 3 speed transmission were both rebuilt by Custom Transmission in Copperas Cove, Texas. That 3 speed is mounted to the tried and true Ford 302 CID V8. That motor has been rebuilt, and also features a Holley 600 CFM carburetor, Edelbrock intake manifold, 7 quart Moroso deep sump oil pan, shorty headers, and an in-line, low pressure fuel pump. This stout V8 wedged in the lightweight body of a classic Jeep gives a serious advantage in the power-to-weight category, and is more than enough to motivate this SUV down the road, or up a mountain. Other major new parts on the vehicle include a new dash, gauges, all wiring from bumper to bumper by Painless Wiring, brake discs and drums, brake lines, master cylinder, and calipers, a heavy duty steering gearbox, drag links, ties rod ends, and Pro Comp 2.5” lift springs with ES3000 shocks. And if somehow, you manage to roll this beauty over while abusing your favorite trail, the front roll bar with frame tie-ins at all six points is there to make sure you live to tell the tale. This CJ-7 has been a serious labor of love for someone, and is ready to be your next adventure buddy. Check it out today!
