1982 Jeep Cj8 Scrambler in Fort Worth Texas

 Vehicle Description
Jeep has recently rolled out their very successful Gladiator pickup line, but the idea isnt new. This 1982 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler is proof of concept over thirty years ago, and is dressed in a cool black on black color scheme that works perfectly with the Jeeps off-road mission. With this beautiful frame-up restored 4x4, you can go anywhere and take a bunch of your stuff with you!br / br / The CJ8 was a longer version of the CJ7, which had both the benefit of increasing cargo capacity and improving the on-road ride. Only a handful were built during six years of production, and the numbers in 1981 didnt even break 8k, so finding one this nice today is quite unexpected. It has been expertly restored, and the paint it wears today has an awesome look that maybe isnt as flashy as youd expect for 1982, but works extremely well today. Custom-made silver and gray Scrambler decals have been reinstalled and the few bits of chrome on the grille insert, mirrors, and handles make it seem dressed up. Aggressive rubber flares for the fenders which allow oversized all-terrain tires and protect the bodywork when youre off road. Simple chrome bumpers, a roll bar, hard steel doors, a rear-mounted spare, and the hard top overhead give it a no-nonsense look that suits it / br / Like all CJs, the CJ8 Scrambler is basic inside, catering to the guy who understands that playing outside is a dirty affair. Fortunately, comfort and simplicity can live together in the form of supportive black bucket seats over a floor covered in durable black carpets. Have fun, get dirty, hose it all off and do it again, its the Jeep way. The gauges are in the center of the dash, where theyve lived for decades, and theres a chrome surround to help brighten things up a bit. There is a retro-style AM/FM/AUX radio in the factory slot, so nothing in the dash was cut up and made to look janky, and the dash pad and chrome accents on the dash really dress things up inside. An aftermarket locking center console provides some weatherproof storage and a pair of cup holders (good luck with those on the trail!), and theres a chrome grab bar for passengers. Youll also note there are three pedals on the floor and a highly-desirable 5-speed gearbox, a feature that transforms this from toy to a vehicle that can actually be used in the real world. Theres also a hard half-cab top overhead, offering great protection from sun and rain when youre out having fun, and out back the spray-in bedliner protected bed is spacious enough to handle lots of cargo. This thing looks and feels brand-new inside, but its all been purposely put together to weather any storm. br / br / To go with its added size, this CJ8 Scrambler carries a believed-original 258 cubic inch inline-6 under the squared-off hood. With plenty of torque to move this 4x4 over any terrain, it makes pleasant six-cylinder noises and is the perfect partner to the freshly rebuilt 5-speed transmission, making climbing around off-road a low-stress proposition. Nicely finished with a Weber 2-barrel carburetor, stock exhaust manifolds, and an overall super-clean look that suggests nothing was overlooked during the restoration. It also offers power steering and front disc brakes to help out when the going gets tough, and a soundtrack provided by a fresh exhaust system underneath. In fact, almost everything underneath looks newer, and the entire undercarriage has been coated with black paint to protect it from the elements. Chrome Laredo-style wheels have a traditional Jeep look and carry oversized 31x10.5-15 BFGoodrich all-terrain white-letter tires with plenty of / br / A neat footnote in Jeep history thats suddenly back in fashion, this Scrambler is also a great collectable that can still go anywhere. This may be the cleanest, easy-driving Scrambler weve ever had, and with that stunning look, it wont last long. Call today!br/br/
