This 1981 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler is a great rig. It runs strong and, with its MOPAR Fuel Injection, it is a very capable off-roader. A great combination of sturdy stock equipment and nicely matched after-market components, this one’s a real head-turner. Manufactured between 1981 and 1986, there were only 26,000 of these Scramblers produced. They are pretty scarce, and Scramblers this nice are rarely seen. Especially RUST FREE examples. It has been in New Mexico it’s entire life. I have owned it for about a year in a half.

Odometer zeroed in 2010 as it was replaced. Stock odometer read 13,359 at that time.
This is NOT a frame-off restoration, but it IS a great-looking and performing classic Jeep that will provide plenty of enjoyment.
Paint is not perfect, but still looks good. No body dents or dings–only very minor surface scratching and a couple of chips in the paint typical for off-road vehicles.
Straight frame, no rust, no accidents.Tracks and handles quite well.

It’s a great Jeep. I can’t stress enough how rust free and having original steel means to these trucks. I bought it because of that reason alone. It has been extremely dependable, starts every time. I have also since installed new U joints (4) and a new clutch and pressure plate assembly. I’m asking $16,250. Text or email. Jim 248.495.3965. I don’t need help selling so please don’t call me for that. Thanks
