Up for sale is my beautiful 1983 jeep cj8 scrambler. This jeep has spent the last 12 years in sunny California on an avocado farm and grape vineyard. It was rarely used and when it was it was just to putt around and check on crops!.It only has 43,400 miles on it!!!!!

The body and frame are in excellent shape and had almost no rust. I had the body removed and sandblasted to make sure there was nothing hiding underneath the faded paint. While the body was off I cleaned up the frame and undercarriage and checked everything to verify it was in good shape. With such low miles everything seemed to be in great working order and condition.

The jeep is equipped with the factory 258 straight 6 engine with an automatic transmission and a Dana 300 transfer case, all stock. I just recently tuned it up with new spark plugs, spark plug wires, cap, rotor, air filter, fuel filter, fuel pump, and all new fluids. The carburetor was also rebuilt. I flushed the transmission fluid and changed out the filter and strainer filter and replaced the pan with a new gasket!The differentials are the Dana 30 up front and model 20 rear, both with new chrome diff covers and new oil. Breaks are in good shape and stops nicely.

The body I had painted inside, underneath and outside with 3 coats of black and 3 coats of clear. I then had the bed only lined for durability and protection. The body was put back on with new body mounts and bolts, and received a wet sand and buff job to give the paint a great mirror finish!! I then had factory scrambler Laredo decals put on to really finish it off with that classic scrambler look we all love!

The interior has new front seats and a great condition factory back seat, with some charcoal gray carpet. The jeep was put back together with brand new stainless steel hinges and hardware. New tail lights and front marker lights were installed as the old ones were faded and oxidized. I also just put in a new windshield.

All in all the jeep was finished and it now looks great and drives really great. It is very smooth when it takes off, the automatic shifts nicely and quietly. It tracks down the road very well and handles all the bumps with ease. It is the perfect Sunday cruiser or show car or beach jeep or whatever you want it to be.Every time I get in and drive it puts a smile on my face, and I constantly get compliments anywhere I go!!!The blinkers and gauges all work with the exception of the gas gauge but I am trying to work on that.The 2 things that I was unable to get to that I would replace is the center console top pad is faded ripped from being in the sun, and the front bumper has 2 small dents in it. Other than that I would say that the jeep is in very excellent condition and it truly drives like it did when it was new. You can tell it has low miles just by the way it feels and drives, so smooth.!!

This jeep has had a ton of time and money put into it and it was already a really nice jeep to start out with so it has received great care throughout its whole life.Please bid with confidence and you will not be disappointed with you're purchase!! It is a true classic jeep and it looks, feels, and drives like one. It will last many years to come if shown the same respect it already has! Thanks for looking and Happy Bidding!!!

I am happy to help with shipping I have a friend that moves cars and deals with shippers.

Please only bid if you have the money and are ready to pay, I am great to deal with and will get you you're jeep quick. Thanks!
