Jeep History
THIS JEEP WAS BUILT IN TOLEDO, H AND SHIPPED UP TO VANCOUVER, A. IT WAS DRIVEN BY ITS FIRST OWNER UNTIL 1997. (ITS ODOMETER IS STILL IN KILOMETERS)
IN 1997 THE SECOND OWNER OF THE JEEP HAD THE BODY TAKEN OFF THE FROM AND COMPLETELY GUTTED AND CLEANED UP. THE OWNER SANDBLASTED THE FRAME AND BODY TO PERFECTION. THEN HE WORKED ON RESTORING THE CJ8 TO ITS ORIGINAL CONDITION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE LIFT THAT HE PUT ON IT.
HE ALSO HAD THE ENGINE COMPLETELY FACTORY REBUILT AND HAS THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF GRUMBLE TO IT. NEEDLESS TO SAY HE GOT IT DIALED IN REAL NICE LIKE.
YOU CAN SEE EVERYTHING DONE TO THE JEEP SINCE 1997 HAS PAPER WORK TO SHOW FOR IT.
AFTER THAT THIS JEEP LITERALLY SAT IN HIS HEATED POLE BARN YEAR ROUND ONLY TAKING IT OUT DURING THE SUMMER TO DRIVE IT INTO TOWN WITH HIS KIDS.
I TOLD YOU THAT TO TELL YOU THIS. THE JEEP HAS NOT SEEN RAIN OR SNOW IN 17 YEARS AT ALL. THERE IS NOT A LICK OF RUST ON THIS THING! NONE NOT AT ALL. YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME COME CHECK IT OUT FOR YOURSELF THIS THING IS CLEAN. (PLEASE CHECK OUT THE COLD START AND WALK AROUND VIDEO TO SEE IT FOR YOURSELF.
I PURCHASED THE VEHICLE EARLY IN 2015 AND GAVE THE CJ8 SOME BASIC MAINTENANCE AND SOME UPGRADES. NOW FOR ME THE BIGGEST EXAMPLE OF HOW GOOD OF CONDITION THIS JEEP IS IN WAS THAT I DROVE IT FROM VANCOUVER ISLAND ALL THE WAY TO MY HOME IN FORT WAYNE, N. THAT IS OVER 2,OOO+ MILES. WE DID IT IN JUST OVER 39 HOURS. (photos of the trip included in photos)
LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN. WE DROVE IT CROSS COUNTRY THIS SUMMER AND WE DID NOT HAVE ONE ISSUE AT ALL.
MILAGE FROM THE TRIP: 14.5 MPG
