Classic Car Overview

While some of these rare Scramblers are restored to be the ultimate off-roading machine, this 1981 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler LS-based Restomod goes sooooo much further. Not only do you have the awesome-looking fuel-injected V8 under the hood, but also the beefy axles, lifted stance, four-wheel disc brakes, and attention-grabbing vibrant paint mean this one can go anywhere and be memorable everywhere. The Scrambler is one of those Jeeps that everyone likes to see. It takes the iconic lines of the CJs and gives it the longest body of the series. While the looks are unmistakably Jeep, it is also rarer than the CJ5s and CJ7s. Its this distinction that also explains where there has been plenty of investments in this one even before you know about the motor upgrade. The Teal Blue Metallic is a great confidence color when done like this. It has a radiant style that loves the sunshine. And the metallic element harmonies nicely with the chrome grille and silver Scrambler decals. Its attractive for in-town driving, but its also not so fancy that youll hesitate to have some off-road fun. And you can tell this lifted 4x4 was made to blaze its own trail. You have a custom steel front bumper with a brush guard and integrated Smitybilt winch. Diamond plate rockets, tubular steel side steps, and aluminum doors reinforce the sides. And those extra-wide fender flares cannot even contain the uber-wide 20-inch American Off-Road wheels. It all ends with LED tail lights, more diamond plating, and a steel bumper with a tow hitch. So this custom Scrambler is a great mix of beauty and brawn. The interior is all about being both useful and attractive white being open to the world. That means full liner paint for the bed and cab, crisp newer gauges, and a proper roll bar done in silver to match the exterior. And you can tell they were thoughtful about the upgrades because this has the right pieces to be comfortable. It includes a tilt steering column, a cool sidewinder shifter, bucket seats with a center console in-between, and a bikini top to keep the sunshine off your shoulders. And with all that truck bed space, this one is perfect for tailgating at a ball game. While they invested over every inch of this CJ8, we bet your favorite upgrade will be in the engine bay. The LS/Vortec line of motors is the choice for those who want modern power with classic Chevy small block style robustness. So its nice to see the fuel-injected 5.3-liter V8 upgrade under the hood done with care. Youll love to look at the details, like the custom color-matched engine covers. And as you dig deeper, youll also spot good extras like the aluminum radiator with electric fan, steel braided coolant lines, and Flowmaster mufflers on the dual exhaust. Its a powerful package that also starts up readily and runs smoothly. That makes for a useful setup thats furthered by the upgrade to a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. There are additional great anytime driving features like power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes. But the lifted stance and large Nitto Trail Grappler tires let you know this is more than just a city boy. In fact, this looks like it has been upgraded to heavy-duty axles for true off-road work. This Scrambler knows how to get attention for its power, style, and rarity. Its the kind of custom 4x4 that is limitless fun. Call today!!!
