Clean title! This Jeep looks awesome (and NO RUST)... but it needs someone with more time than I've had to get it to it's full potential. It's a solid foundation to take as little or as FAR as YOU want.

1982 Jeep CJ-7 Renegade
The engine has been rebuilt. The clutch is smooth, with no chatter, good brakes.
Swapped in a MotorCraft 2150 Carb in place of stock carb and emissions crap - upgraded ignition coil (TFI), plugs, cables and new distributor with new ECM and new battery.
The rockers are nice and straight and do not have the typical rust spots in front of the doors. Also no rust under the rollbar mounts. There are very small rust holes on the floors, but nothing that needs to be addressed.
Body stripped and painted with navy blue bedliner paint inside / out of tub with all new khaki bikini top, matching new seat covers over good condition seats and brackets, with new seat belts all around.
What NEEDS to be done:
Still chasing out what the previous owner did to this poor thing - lots of field engineering on lighting had to be ripped out. But we make 2 steps forward and 2 steps back on electrical -- it NEEDS a new wiring harness ($500 - $800 + 2 weekends of time) - we've spent way too much time and effort chasing rabbits.
It WAS running very recently, but not today (no spark) - the engine runs strong and solid... we had a mechanic run up a large tab on us before we had to yank it back from him. So currently we need to get a solid baseline in place (wiring harness) before doing any more work.
The front drive shaft was high centered by previous owner and jacked up the front Dana 30 needs to be rebuilt ($300 in parts). Then the replacement front drive shaft can be installed for 4WD again.
The gas tank really needs to be dropped and cleaned out - and a new fuel sender / fuel filler hose installed.
Previous owner jacked up a bunch of dash wiring, so none of the gaugeswork - we'd suggest a new speedo with fuel / temp and pull the rest.
Honestly, it's at a point where I think the next owner may want to drop in a v-8 fuel injected motor if you're gonna do it, do it right. It's just more of an undertaking than we have time or heart left for.
We're moving and can't take it with us and don't have time to keep working on it... looking for someone that can invest the time to do some of the rest of the work.
It should NOT be a daily driver for all you young drivers out there thinking it would look cool... all the Jeep owners who've driven lifted, larger tire, no doors (no A/C and no heat) Jeeps know what I'm talking about. But it does look cool! :-)
This Jeep deserves to live as more than some hunting or camp Jeep --textorcall and leave a voicemail for more info(972) 528-0700
