Jeep were owned by the American Motor Company (AMC) in the mid-1970s, and they responded to the growth of the leisure industry by building a modern version of the military Jeep: the CJ-7. The new vehicle had a longer wheelbase and Hot six-cylinder power, and was also the first jeep to become available with a Turbo-I Hydramatic gearbox. Hard top and soft top versions were available, but they all used the same rugged separate ladder-style frame which was almost identical to I hat used on the World War II Jeeps. Semi-elliptical springs were used all around on I lie twin-live axle set-up, with part-time four-wheel drive coming on the manual version and the Quadratrac permanent four-wheel drive being optional on both the manual and automatic. As many were used off-road, the Jeep came with a four-point roll cage, but otherwise was little changed styling-wise from the original Jeep shape.

Hi Jeff Nice to have talked to you I can't believe the interest I have in the CJ7 I have had it completely redone, it is a frame off restoration, with all new metal. I brought it about four years ago and just had a friend of mine in Md who works as a correction officer had the prison body shop do all the work, It took three years but turned out great. I just ordered a complete a/c factory system. I was going to install this summer but it is still in the boxes, I will include it, I have two other dealers and one friend who are interested in it, but I will let you sell it since I bought the Dodge from you.
The CJ-7 featured a longer wheel base than the CJ-5 and handled better. It was introduced in 1976 and ONLY 379,299 were built during 11 years of production.
The CJ-7 featured an all-wheel drive system called Quadra-Trac, as well as a part-time two speed transfer case. Other features included an optional molded hardtop, and steel doors. The CJ-7 was also available in Renegade, an upgraded Laredo model, and the Top of the line Golden Eagle Limited Edition. Noticeable by their different body decals(Eagle on Hood and "I will soar on the wings of Eagles"...Isaiah 40:31). The Golden Eagle Limited Edition model featured nicer Golden Eagle Tan/Beige Leather seats, steering wheel tilt, and a chrome package that included the bumpers, front grill, and mirrors.

The CJ-7 continues to be used in the sport of mud racing, with either the stock body or a fiberglass replica. It is also a favorite for rock crawling.
Mine has a completely rebuilt 258 cu in (4.2 L) AMC 6cyl Engine, with Headers and many other upgrades. The transmission is a Tremec T-150 (3 speed manual) with a Hurst Shifter. Comes with a Hard top and a soft top. Includes Two extra front doors painted to match still in the boxes. A brand new Extra Mopar steering box, and a KYB Steering Stabilizer bar, both still in the Mopar box's is included.
