I’ve owned this CJ since 06/2015 and it’s only been driven in the summer or on nice days.
I’ve always garage kept and never driven it in the rain, salt or snow.
Previously, it’s only lived in Texas or southern Virginia until I purchased it.
100% solid frame with no rust or repairs at all.
Clean Autocheck vehicle history available with no recorded accidents or title issues.
Lots of newer parts & it Jeep also comes with a large amount of brand new parts as well.
It runs, shifts and drives great having been regularly driven over the last 2 summers.
Engine runs very strong, starts easily and gets good MPG (could be leaned out for better MPG).
Clutch has about 50% life left.
4 wheel drive works great.
This Jeep gets 18 MPG @ 70 MPH on the highway turning 1835 RPM in 4th gear.
I recently purchased a hardtop and doors to sell with the Jeep since it’s the winter.
The tub previously had a tiny amount of rust on the lower rockers / interior wheel wells which I ground down to clean metal, sealed with rust converter and painted. Side plates have been added as well.
All original floor pans. There is only one small patch that was added by a previous owner. (See photos).
Oil changed every 3,000 miles.
All emissions equipment & water heated intake plumbing have been removed and plugged.
The only reason I’m selling the Jeep is because I have another CJ-7 I’m currently building.
- Wheels are perfect without a scratch, any off roading I've done with the Jeep has been only in sand locally.
Clean and clear title in hand.
More pictures are available if needed.

Springs could use a leaf pulled from each spring pack to ride softer (no parts needed).

All Lights work but the turn signal switch is bad, won’t indicate for right turns, only left ($34.99).
New heater core needs to be installed for heat to work (included in parts).
- I do not have keys for the hard top or doors (can easily be bought and installed).
