1981 Jeep CJ-8 Scrambler
All original steel, no fiberglass or aftermarket panels.
This Jeep is driven regularly so mileage stated will change.
87,451 ORIGINAL miles as of the date of this listing.
258 I-6, Ford 300 ignition upgrade and Motor-craft Carburetor upgrade
AMC 20 Rear and Dana 30 Front 2.72 ratio
New body mounts with 1″ of lift.
Original Wheels with 5 Dick Cepek Crusher 31×10.5 Tires <90%.
Herculiner applied to bed and cabin about 3-4 years ago.
New Dash Lights.
New Dash Control Cables.
Front full winch mount custom bumper.
Has orginal Kayline half soft top and doors. Does need new weatherstripping and door hardware but frames are in good shape.
Bestop Element Half Doors and Door Enclosures to go with it.
Safari Top for the warmer weather.
Has a few little extra equipment items.
Have a few replacement parts (cowl seal, break cylinders, etc… that I planned on refreshing at some point that hasn’t come yet.)
Runs great and can drive anywhere, I would take this Jeep on a trip anytime, and have. Drives great at highway speeds, straight and true. Of course I wouldn’t drive it in a decent rain storm without a newer top, you will get a little wet, hence the need for new door seals.
4WD high and low work excellent and this jeep will crawl along nicely when needed.
Jeep was originally white in color and has been painted black. Paint is in fairly good shape but not a showroom finish.
There is one spot that could use repair on the passenger side in front of the door opening. No rust coming through at this point but there is a mild bulge where it will in the future. This is a common problem area on CJ’s.
Not really needing to sell but would like to get into something else that I can haul the kids around in a little safer and she really doesn’t get the attention she really deserves.
Price is $16,500.00 or best REASONABLE offer. Not going to give it away. Title in hand.
The prices on these just keep rising!
Serious inquiries only will be greatly appreciated!

Wanted to try it on here before it goes on eBay.
Thanks for checking it out!!
