Cj '85 CJ7 Cigarette Lighter ???

Does anyone have one of these they want to sell?

The one I HAD was damaged. Fool cut wires and jimmied the contact in back making it useless. Don't know what he did but it's done?

When will I learn that people simply don't care about these vehicles like us owners. I was planning on keeping the look but utilizing it as a phone charger.
Let me know if you have one you no longer need and PM.

That one looks a little rough. Unless it was free Id pass on it. Im sure one in better condition can be found, especially for $39.

If you have the plastic mounting part, you can buy the inner metal part, and any vintage or modern cig lighter element should fit.

Our 74 had the lighter in the dash which didn't work. I removed it and replaced it with a power port which came with a warning not to use for a lighter. Later added a second power port. I've seen add on under the dash power ports at the FLAPS similar to the OEM. If anyone wants the lighter knob with the lighter symbol let me know. I also have a tuning knob for a radio. These knobs are the same as what was on a 74 Chevy I owned.

Can you show me the lighter knob? I may be interested. I have an aftermarket on there that did okay (until) but looking for the 2 bolt mounting base as well.

Thanks. I have the other style that matches all my knobs; the one with chrome ring around knob.

Does anyone know it that coiled heating element on the end that gets hot is replaceable? . . . that seems to be where it broke. If not, I just need that area.
