1985 Jeep Scrambler CJ-8

Gateway Classic Cars of Denver welcomes this 1985 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler!

The Jeep CJ models are both a series and a range of small, open-bodied off-road vehicles and compact pickup trucks, built and sold by several successive incarnations of the Jeep automobile marque from 1945 to 1986.

the Jeep CJ line was officially ended in 1986. More than 1.5 million CJ Jeeps were built, having continued the same basic body style for 45 years since the Jeep first appeared.[1] Widely regarded as "America's workhorse", the CJs have been described as "probably the most successful utility vehicle ever made."[3] American Motors VP Joseph Cappy said the end of "CJ production will signal an end of a very important era in Jeep history."[4] The Jeep CJ-7 was replaced in 1986 by the similar-looking Jeep Wrangler. The Jeep CJ-8 and CJ-10s were succeeded by the Jeep Comanche pickup.

The Jeep Scrambler CJ-8 (rebuilt trans. T-176 4 speed Manual, about 1500 miles ago.)(rebuilt engine ALSO about 1,500 miles ago) was a long-wheelbase version of the CJ-7, introduced in 1981 and manufactured through 1986. It featured a 103.5 in (2,629 mm) wheelbase[70] and a removable half cab, creating a small pick-up style box instead of using a separate pickup bed. CJ-8s used the traditional transfer case with manual front locking hubs to engage the four-wheel drive. Most had either a four- or five-speed manual transmission, but a three-speed automatic transmission was an option.

The term "Scrambler" comes from an appearance package with which many CJ-8s were equipped, which included tape graphics and special wheels. Former President Ronald Reagan owned a Scrambler "CJ-8" and used it on his California ranch.[74]

A full-length steel hardtop CJ-8 was made for the Alaskan Postal Service, using right-hand drive and automatic transmissions. Instead of the rear tailgate, the steel hardtop used a hinged barn-door opening to the back. Only 230 were produced and sold in the U.S. It was also widely sold in Venezuela and Australia as the CJ8 Overlander, with small differences, including full-length rear windows on the Overlander.[75] Steel hardtops used on these postal Scramblers and Overlanders were known as "World Cab" tops.[76]
