Vehicle Description

Here's a rare final-year 1985 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler 4x4 that's nicely presented with plenty of great personally touches to really standout. But what you like best of all is the fact that something this distinguished is also so affordable.

The Scrambler is one of those Jeeps that everyone likes to see. It takes the iconic lines of the CJs and gives it the longest body of the series. While the looks are unmistakably Jeep, it is also quite rare. There were only 1,050 example produced in 1987, the Scrambler's final year. Now just imagine how many vehicles have survived the last three decades to look this complete and nice. It's a true two-tone setup with the red and the black used as interesting accents against each other, like on the headlight surrounds or 15-inch wheels. Look closely at this total package, it has some great features for utility such as the auxiliary lights on the bumper, side steps, trailer hitch, and vent covers on the removable doors.

This Scrambler is all about allowing you to choose your level of open air. It is a sung hardtop pickup when you need closed security, but then you also have a sunroof to let a little nature inside. Or you can remove the doors and top to have the best features of Jeep and pickup truck utility combined. That makes this Scrambler versatile and ideal for everyone from longboard surfers, to those who occasionally bring home large projects. The driver and passenger get bucket seats that are covered in a nearly bulletproof vinyl, and they are comfortable enough to make the trail an easy ride. In between is a latching center console that also has the welcomed addition of cup holders. The controls are laid out in typical Jeep fashion, with a grippy three-spoke steering wheel, column-mounted automatic transmission selector, and a short stalk floor shifter for the four-wheel drive. Plus, heater controls and gauges are clustered in the center of the dash.

Under the hood, the AMC inline-six has a nice presentation, and it's backed up by reliable components like an MSD ignition, K&N air filter, and newer hoses. These motors have been mainstays in the Jeep family so it makes plenty of power and torque to keep you running on the trail. Of course, the 4x4 capability with two-speed transfer case is exactly what you want in any off-road situation. But far more than just a mud slinger, this CJ8 has great anytime driving features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, and the grip of Goodyear Wrangler tires.
