V8 power, the best off-road upgrades, and the right amount of added comfort – this 1978 Jeep CJ7 is a rare opportunity at quite an affordable go-anywhere machine.

A Jeep like this is an adventitious machine. After all, the paint is a very basic and weathered black that just wants to make you fearless about going full-stem into the brush. And the low price on this can leave room in your budget for a respray, but this one already seems to put the right attitude forward. That’s because the investment in this one so far has been about keeping it a hardy off-roader. That means a steel front bumper with an integrated brush guard and a mount for the new Smittybilt 9500 winch. The sides show off the fender flares and lifted stance. The rear has a full-size spare on a swing-away mount and it’s hard to miss the neon orange of the hi-jack lift mounted to the rear.

The interior keeps the off-road ready theme going. Liner paint on the floor, rugged rubber mats, and plenty of cargo space in the back. You have the right driving essentials, like high back bucket seats with weather-resistant covers, shoulder belts, upgraded gauges, and an upgraded full roll bar. While this one is off-road ready, it also has some nice updates, like the tilt steering column, cup holder, and an AM/FM/CD stereo w/Bluetooth. This also has a full hardtop, doors, and working heater. This is a combo that’s quite alluring for those who are first to hit the trails before dawn.

Under the hood is the 304 cubic-inch motor. It’s great to have a hardy Jeep V8, and this one even has good updates like a four-barrel carburetor and HEI distributor. This has power steering, front disc brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission. They make driving easier, but you may want to make more investments here if you’re looking for an on-road Jeep. There’s a two-speed 4×4 transfer case, a new set of meaty off-road tires, a two-inch body lift, and Rancho shocks as part of the three-inch suspension lift. It all goes to show how there have been good investments in a proper 4×4.

This is currently on a salvage/rebuilt title. It’s all part of a style that gives you the best of essential Jeep. That means a beefy 4×4 that has the V8 power and high ground clearance that’s perfect for the hunt camp or sand dunes. So if you’re ready for a true outdoor lifestyle, then you know exactly how great this value-priced CJ is. Call today!!!
