I grabbed one up. Finally!

Been looking for a Jeep for quite sometime and this baby popped up and I grabbed her today!

Picasa Web Albums - ralphsantoyo - jeep cj7

Edit: Maybe I should put some more info about it.

1982 CJ 7 with only 138,000 miles on the clock. There's absolutely no rust anywhere. Manual I6.

That is a great looking jeep! I have always wanted to paint mine white. What are your plans for her?

I love the look of Jeeps low with tires that fit perfectly. The highest I might lift her is 2.5 inches with 33's, I have a friend who has this set up and I think it's gorgeous. Tires are brand new so I'm leaving those as is for now. I'm going to school as an engineer, so hopefully in the next few years I'll be able to swap in a v8. I don't do to serious off roading at the moment but who knows how long that will last so the axles and gearing will stay for now. If that changes definitely do some research and go from there. But for now I'm going to enjoy her as is.

Is that spice or nutmeg? Nutmeg stuff is very hard to find. Look at the floors for rust near the footwells and at the base of the rollbar.

Nice Rig. Reminds me of the '85 CJ-7 I had a long time ago.

As I looked through all the photos, I kept thinking "So, that's what one looks like without rust!"

Nice job!!

For 1982 model year that should be nutmeg color interior.

Nice find and at a good price for $7500.00?
