For sale in our Dallas showroom is this awesome 1981 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler. This CJ8 comes furnished with a bad to the bone Deep grey Kevlar camoliner. So, you can go through any type of terrain and not worry about scratching the paint.

This is the first year for Jeep to make the CJ-8 and they only produced 8,355 of them. So, it’s quite difficult to find a CJ-8 as nice as this one. They stopped production of the CJ-8 in 1986.

The CJ-8 comes equipped with a 4.0 L six-cylinder engine with a 5-speed manual transmission that came out of a 2002 Jeep Wrangler. The original inline six engine in the CJ-8 was only putting out 110HP and the new stump pulling 4.0L out of the 2002 wrangler puts out 190HP. It also comes with a carb conversion that gives it enough torque to climb up a 90-degree wall while in low gear. All wiring has been replaced and every gauge and light works. This CJ-8 has a 3-inch lift kit that’s sitting on 36-inch Maxxis all terrain tires wrapped around 20’’ Moto Metal rims.

This very detailed restoration took a little over a year and a half to complete and attention to detail and high-end parts were the focus.

Don’t miss out on this well restored Beast. To view this 1981 Jeep CJ-8 in greater detail including HD pictures and videos, visit www.GatewayClassicCars.com. Or call 817-310-9400
