1979 Jeep CJ -- Additional Info:

This is not your average CJ5. When this Jeep rolls into an event, people notice. It stands tall, is dressed sharp and is ready to rock. It's like those people that walk into a room and bring an energy with them that steps the party up a notch. Check out the energy this Jeep brings and see what you think. This Jeep is among the last of the short-wheelbase CJ5s. Their maneuverability and light weight made them very desirable for... off road use and also fun to sport around town in. Visibility in traffic is great as it stands tall on those 33s mounted on American Racing wheels and it looks great in that dark green paint which is not your average paint job. It is obviously the work of an expert craftsman with access to a nice spray booth and the resulting quality is outstanding. There are new front and rear bumpers with a trailer receiver in the rear one so that you can mount a bike rack in it, tow a jet ski or fishing boat, or whatever else you wish with it. The soft top, doors, and spare tire cover are all new Bestop pieces and there is a new spare tire mount that works smoothly too. Swing that spare out of the way and drop the tailgate, and you will find a nicely detailed out cargo area ready for coolers or dogs or people sitting on the sides, hanging on to the roll bar to make the trip from the campsite to the waterfront or maybe the skeet range. Up front the quality of workmanship continues with a beautiful 3-spoke wooden steering wheel and seats reupholstered with new Rugged Ridge seat covers. The dash looks showroom new with the fresh paint, controls that have been nicely detailed out and upgraded Autometer gauges. Also upgraded is the stereo. It is ready to bring the sounds to the party with an aftermarket unit that is iPod compatible pumping the music out through Acoustick speakers mounted behind the shifter and behind the roll bar. The floors are lined throughout and there are Jeep floor mats as well as diamond plate trim pieces inside both doors. Under the hood of this Jeep you will find a neat and clean engine bay with a nicely upgraded 327 cubic inch V8 providing the power. Underneath that polished Edelbrock air topper is a Carter AFB competition series 4-barrel carb which is feeding an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold. Finned Edelbrock valve covers look great in black and brushed aluminum. Long tube headers feed directly into side pipes for a great look and an awesome sound. A new brake booster and master cylinder provide the pressure to the front disc brakes and assure proper brake function while new belts, hoses, plugs, cap, and wires assure reliability. Power flows back through a 4-speed manual transmission to the transfer case and then to solid axles mounted on leaf springs front and rear with manual locking hubs in the front. Goodyear Wrangler 33/12.50s all around mounted on those American Racing wheels get to power to the ground. Come on down and check out this super sharp CJ5. Ask your salesperson about all the build receipts. Then take it home and head out for some adventures with it.
