1976 Jeep CJ-7 - 5.7L Tuned Port Injection V8 - 700R4 Automatic Transmission - Fiberglass Body - Full Roll Cage - Ford 9 Rear End - Dana 30 Front - Blue Exterior - Black Interior Featured here is an amazing custom-built Jeep assembled with one intention, off-road performance! Based on a 1976 Jeep CJ-7, this build has no shortage of high-performance upgrades and heavy-duty fabrications. The stock steel body that is often plagued with rust issues has been replaced with a fiberglass body with a custom flip-up front end. The body has been painted a deep blue and the finish was polished to a nice luster. Other exterior upgrades include chrome rear-view mirrors, stainless bumpers, LED trail lights, and bumper-mounted high-intensity driving lights. Under the hood, a Chevrolet Tuned Port Injection 5.7-liter V8 now replaces the original AMC Jeep powerplant. This fuel-injected V8 breathes through a set of Hooker fender exit headers and flows through a dual exhaust with a set of Flowmaster mufflers. A GM Performance HD ignition with GM Soft Touch Rev Limiter fires the combustion and this hot setup stays cool with an aluminum radiator equipped with a custom-fabricated fan shroud and 6-bladed flex fan. Power is transferred through a 700R4 4-speed automatic lightly modified with B&M transmission performance parts. Underneath the stock frame has been updated with a lift kit made up of HD leaf springs and shackles with polyurethane bushings. A full roll cage not only protects the passengers and driver but also firms up the stock chassis. The steering box is reinforced with a bolt-on brace and the spring U-bolts are protected with skid plates and both differentials have had heavy-duty anti-roll braces fabricated to keep the axles planted and stable. The front axle has been replaced with Dana 30 with an air locker and Warner manual locking hubs and the rear axle is a Ford 9 unit. Sky Jacker adjustable shocks are installed out back with dual front shocks up front with custom fabricated mounts. This Jeep features power brakes with front disc and rear drums and power steering. All the brake and fuel lines are brand new and mounted in a manner that protects them from trail impact. Large 17 XD alloy wheels are fitted with oversized Nitto Terra Grabber All Terrain Radial Tires providing additional lift and ground clearance. Inside the cockpit of this Jeep features four Kirkey Racing seats all equipped with RCI and Diest safety harnesses and are mounted securely to the rollbar to keep the riders safely planted inside. A custom dashboard features AutoMeter gauges monitoring fuel level, fuel pressure, water temperature, transmission temperature, voltage, and oil pressure. An AutoMeter speedometer replaces the stock unit in the dash and a Sport Comp Monster tachometer with shift light is mounted near the steering column on the roll bar. The factory heater system is in place with controls mounted in the dash. A Grant steering wheel sits at the top of a tilt steering column and the gear selection is provided by a Hurst Quarter Stick shifter. The trail tunes come from a dash Pioneer AM/FM/CD player that plays through a set of four speakers. Owning a Jeep is unlike any other special vehicle ownership experience. You get to feel the wind in your hair and the sun in your face like a convertible, but you are not limited to the roads! You can explore two tracks and dune trails off the beaten path, unlike other traditional classic cars. This Jeep also possesses the power and thunder you get from a muscle car ownership. It has also been said while a clean Jeep looks great sitting at a car show, they may even look a little better and covered with a little trail mud after an afternoon adventure out in the woods or even cruising the beach.
