The new Jeep Gladiator has re-ignited the passion for the classic Jeep CJ8 Scrambler. This example really loves to show that vintage flair inside and out. But the real secret here is that you have been upgraded to small block V8 power to take full advantage of what this 4x4 has to offer. The CJ8 Scrambler has the unmistakable look of a classic Jeep with the iconic grille, removable panels, and go-anywhere stance. While 1981 was the inaugural year for the Scrambler, it\'s production was still far below its other CJ siblings. That means owning one puts you in a rare fraternity. So it\'s ideal to have an example like this that has the look of a good classic, but never loses that utility feeling that\'s quintessential to a Jeep. So the maroon paint strikes that ideal balance where there\'s a nice shine, but it has an earthy tone and off-road ready presentation that looks ideal for a trim into nature. It has an overall thoughtful look where pieces like the Scrambler hood decal goes with the fender flares, bumpers, black hard top, and padded roll bar. The full-length stripes are a coordinated two-tone gray that tuck under the rockers so they remain complete with the doors on or off. And the shining grille sets the tone for other brightwork, like hood latches and upgraded 15-inch wheels. More than just look good, the longest of the CJs has a handy truck bed has been coated with liner paint. And there are other convenient features like the trailer hitch and full-size spare on the swing-away mount. This Scrambler is all about allowing you to choose your level of open air. The hardtop and doors fit correctly to give you the feeling of a true single cab truck. Or you can remove it all to enjoy the true Jeep lifestyle. No matter how you choose to experience this Scrambler, you\'ll feel the quality from recent investments in essential areas, including Bestop bucket seats, a locking center console, and a smooth dash pad. Plus, there are great upgrades including the B&M floor shifter and an AM/FM/CD stereo that as a USB input and Bluetooth. We bet your favorite upgrade will be in the engine bay. There\'s a long tradition of Chevy small block V8s fitting cleanly into the CJ. So this 350 cubic-inch V8 has the kind of clean installation that looks like it belonged here since day one. It has the right features for a strong powerhouse, including a four-barrel carburetor and a newer distributor. It fires up nicely with a proper V8 tune from the dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers. The upgraded V8 power is nice for off-road work, especially when combined with the two-speed 4x4 transfer case, tall stance, and BF Goodrich All Terrain tires. And features like power steering, the three-speed automatic transmission, and power brakes w/discs up front reaffirm this one is happy living the everyday life. This is the updated and upgraded rare Jeep Scrambler that has all the features you want. So you know you don\'t want to let it slip away. Call today!!!
