Description for Jeep CJ 1983

Don't look now, but Jeeps are red hot and we can't seem to keep them in stock. The fun promised by this 1983 Jeep CJ7 with hits bright red paint, giant tires, and tidy interior isn't just a promise, and more and more buyers are discovering how much fun it is to go out and play in the dirt. With so many of these being used as intended back when they were new, it explains why they're hot collectors' items today: there just aren't that many nice ones left. This CJ7 is very clean and straight, having been freshened a few years ago and given the right upgrades to make it fun to drive and great to look at. The vivid red paint seems right for a vehicle that's built purely for fun and given that it prefers to get dirty, it actually looks terrific. A big winch up front suggests go-anywhere capabilities and black rubber fender flares are probably mandatory with those giant meats. It's also got a set of modest steps, mesh headlight protectors, and a beefy spare tire rack big enough to carry one of those meaty Goodyear tires without effort. This one sure looks the part.The interior is fairly stock, but someone went the extra mile to not only make it functional, but attractive as well. The high-back bucket seats are comfortable yet hose off at the end of a day on the trails and the heavy-duty spray-in bedliner on the floor is just pure genius. You'll note that someone took their time, as it wasn't just sprayed, but each part was disassembled and everything was quite carefully masked, so the results are above and cleaner than you'd expect. There's also a center console that provides some secure storage and this one includes an under-dash A/C system that's fully operational. The gauges look original, but they're actually very clever Speedhut GPS gauges that are more accurate but have an OEM look. There's also a JVC AM/FM/CD stereo in the dash, and the combination of a hardtop, steel doors, A/C, and a stereo make this Jeep a vehicle you can drive every day year-round. Someone spent a ton of money under the skin, starting with a freshly rebuilt 258 cubic inch inline-six that was completed in December 2016, about 1250 miles ago. Not necessarily built for all-out horsepower, the low-end torque it provides is ideal for crawling through the truly rough stuff. However, that's not to say it isn't quick, because on the streets this bright red Jeep will get the drop on much faster hardware if they're not paying attention. The engine bay wasn't necessarily restored when the engine was out, so it has a functional look instead of shiny perfection, but on a Jeep, that's what you want, right? A 4-speed manual transmission is linked to a 2-speed transfer case, and the original axles are fitted with a mild lift kit to give those big tires a little extra room. The underside is original and a little scaly, but most of what you're seeing is orange dirt, not rust, because this Jeep is quite solid. Shiny aluminum wheels wear recent 31x10.5-15 Goodyear Wrangler tires that give it the perfect off-road stance.Look through our inventory and you'll see that Jeeps move through here pretty quickly, and when they're as well-finished as this, we're pretty confident it won't last long.
