1983 Jeep CJ description
Unbelievable completely renovated 1983 Jeep CJ7 for sale!
This project took me a full 4 months of work to completely strip down and rebuild. I have literally spared no expense on this jeep and have well over $30,000 invested in it. I built it so that rust will never be an issue with all stainless nuts/bolts/components and a fully rhino lined body. The engine has also been extensively worked on and I have her running like a top. This is the most unique Jeep you are going to find. Lots of cool custom features. I'll let the list below speak for itself. This is the best jeep out there and a bargain at this price.
