1979 CJ7,
86,000 miles.

I would drive this Jeep anywhere, and I have, I've driven it to Silver Lake several times, to Grayling, West Branch, and up to Bad Axe a bunch of times, the previous owner drove it from Rhode Island to deliver it to me in Michigan, it's very dependable and very capable, it drives great on the road and wheels even better.

The drive line is pretty much stock, but it has power lock diff lockers in the stock axles, I believe it has one piece shafts in the rear, 3 speed manual trans, 5 - 35" MTR's in great shape, urethane motor and trans mounts, steering box brace, new clutch, york compressor and a two gallon tank under the hood. The stock roll bar now has a rear section and windshield bars, newer Bestop soft top in excellent condition, Cobra 40 channel CB, the seats are in good shape, I did the Blazer blower motor upgrade a long time ago so the heat is great, did the HEI ignition upgrade too, it has Warn rock sliders, and custom 2"x4" bumpers with tire carrier on the rear, D ring mounts front & rear, the Warn bumpers in the pics have been replaced.

The body is not great, it's solid enough, just not pretty up close, the floors and body mounts are good, it's begging for a set of tube fenders cuz the stock ones are rusty.

Now the bad news, the passenger side front rear spring hanger has pushed up through the frame, the typical spot where these CJ frames rust, and the rear frame rails could use some attention too, I don't have the time or the tools to do the frame work and that is honestly the only reason I am considering selling it, fix the frame, and you've got a solid, reliable, and capable Jeep.

258 cid Engine pretty much stock, other than a GM HEI distributor

York OBA system

T-150 3 speed trans

Dana 20 T-Case

Front Dana 30 with power lock locker

Rear AMC 20 with power lock locker and one piece shafts???

4" Skyjacker springs

35" x 12.50" x 15" MTR's on American Racing aluminum wheels

Polyurethane bushings everywhere

$3,500.00 and I'll throw in any and every CJ part I have laying around the garage, any less and I'll just keep it until I can find someone to do the work.
