The body on this CJ is in great condition overall. The paint on the Jeep is all brand new, and underneath the jeep looks as clean as on top! As I mentioned before this Jeep was taken care off by an avid entheusiest.The body on the jeep is all steel and is very straight. The jeep started off as a totally rust free body before the resto-mod, so you know the final product is great! The CJ is painted in a beautiful silver metallic and has had the Renegade graphics package. The exterior features custom touches everywhere you look from the beefy full rear tire rack, to the front bumper equipped w/ a Mile Marker 8000lb winch to pull you out of a sticky situation. Handling trails at night will also never be an issue with the 4 front mounted KC HiLites hooked up and ready to go!
The interior is in great shape all around. The original seats have been upgraded to BestTop all weather type hiback buckets. The interior does have a rear seats and two-point harness style seat belts which were not installed at time of the pictures. Rear seat is original and needs a seat cover. The dash is in nice shape with all correct gauges in place and everything functioning as it should. A beautiful black non slip surface has been installed on all the floors. The full soft top and doors are in excellent condition with all locking mechanisms working perfectly! The Jeep will also include a bikini top as well. This Jeep is ready to go from a comfy covered ride to a doors-off, no roof cruiser!
Mechanically, this little CJ runs GREAT! The jeep starts right up and the rebuilt four speed shifts properly and had an all new clutch and slave cylinder installed when the drive train was bolted back together. The 4.2l straight 6 moves this Jeep around with ease and is actually quite peppy and the big carburetor and performance intake help the Jeep breath, then the full headers and magnaflow exhaust dump it all out the back! The motor appears to be a fresh rebuild and resealed with all new gaskets before going back on the frame. I personally have driven the Jeep at a constant 75mph for several hours and it takes it with ease!
The Jeep is very tight and doesn't leak a drop of anything and the cooling system w/ big Aluminum radiator keeps the motor cool even in the Arizona heat. The four wheel drive system functions perfectly and the locking hubs work correctly. All brakes were fully serviced and work perfectly with Discs up front and drums in the rear. The electrical system was updated and the original alternator was replaced with a more dependable AC Delco alternator/regulator combo. This jeep is extremely reliable and starts right up every time. Every possible performance part you can buy has been installed on this Jeep and expense spared!
All in all, this is one heck of a nice Jeep to drive and will get compliments as well as stares everywhere it goes. If you have been searching for a nearly showroom perfect Jeep CJ-5, your search ends here! The car has a clean Arizona Title. Any further questions please call Charlie at 860-966-6015. The car is located in Sunny Scottsdale, AZ!
