This 1982 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler is a sharp-looking 4x4. You'll spot terrific investment in a fresh presentation inside and out. So you'll love everything from the real wood in the truck bed to the A/C interior. It all goes towards having one of the finest examples of one of the rarest CJs around.
The iconic look of a CJ Jeep meets the utility of pickup - that's what makes the Scrambler so instantly attractive. But this one has much more going on here. The black paint has a fresh look that makes sure everyone can see the modern clearcoat shine. So this one announces it's a quality machine from the first impression. The decal package looks just as fresh, and it goes with the brown hardtop to give this one the sophistication of a Black & Tan aristocrat. The brightwork looks even more impressive against these darker colors, and so you really recognize the shine on the chrome bumpers, hood hinges, side mirrors, and polished wheels. And all the features seem to be extra thoughtful. For example, the fog lights are real Marchal units, the roll bar is color-matched, and there are proper side steps. Plus, not only do you have real wood for the bed rails, but the bed has glossy real lumber, too. The rear bumper is wide enough for a proper step, and there's still room for a full-size spare on a swing-away mount.
We love a good Jeep because you can still remove the hardtop and doors to open this one up to the world, but the appeal of this one is it also knows how to be a feature-filled pickup that can be properly buttoned-up for everyday kind of use. There has been a solid investment here so that you have full carpeting, a smooth dash, great-looking door panels, and Laredo-style high-back bucket seats that practically look and feel new. There are desirable features like the sliding rear window, a cup holder center console, and cold-blowing air conditioning. There's even a retro-style AM/FM stereo that comes with the sale. The clean/grippy steering wheel, tilt steering column, and a full set of clear gauges - including tach - all make this a great driver.
Under the hood is Jeep's 258 cubic-inch inline-six. This is quite a desirable powerplant because it has spent decades at the heart of the best Jeeps, and you can tell from the full presentation that there has been a solid investment in the engine bay to restore this to basically day-one status. You'll even love to point out details like the correct decals and working courtesy light. The two-speed transfer case and BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A tires give you true 4x4 capability. But far more than just a mud-slinger, this CJ8 has great anytime driving features like power steering, power brakes, and front discs.
Complete with owner's manual, this has a level of fit, finish, and care you may never find again. So if you're looking for a turn-key stunner Jeep, call today!
