More Information & Pictures

1985 Scrambler/CJ8

Off Frame restortation in 2011, color is Jeep Mango Tango available in 2011 model year
2005 GM 6.0 liter/auto transmission – LQ9/4L65e installed in 2017
The LQ9 is the higher horsepower version of the 6.0 that was installed in Cadillac Escalade and Yukon Denali
Used Novak-Adapt.com as the source for most of the conversion parts
Sanderson ceramic coated headers, Magna-Flo mufflers, true dual exhaust, quiet most of the time, loud when you step on it

Had 258 cu. in. inline 6 and T-5, 5 speed manual when I bought it

Full doors and half doors

Full length ACME hardtop
Do not have the half cab or bulkhead as the half cab wouldn’t fit with the roll bar
Have 2 Bestop soft tops and back windows but only one set of side windows
Mesh and solid bikini tops

Warn 8274 winch – old but works
Custom front and rear bumpers, front set up to flat tow, Jeep wired to flat tow

New Rancho 9000 shocks in 2020
2-1/2″ Rancho spring lift with maybe another 1″ of shackle lift, rides really smooth for a lifted CJ, the longer wheelbase helps too
Front sway bar has manual disconnects (pins that can be pulled out) but I’ve never tried to remove them

Dana 44 rear end, factory front end
ARB air lockers front and rear, 4.56 gears
33×12.5×15 Maxxis Buckshot tires from 2010 but have about 1/2 tread left, spare is a Maxxis Bighorn
Goes about 55 mph at 2000 rpm – similar to 6.0 powered 2500 HD pickup
Gets about 15 MPG

All seats (Bestop) were replaced in 2017

Rhino lined before I owned it and then had Raptor Liner applied over that as part of the restoration

Jeep was originally from Los Angles but I bought it from a guy in Louisiana

The paint is not perfect but is very good, there are some scratches on the hood and 2 small rust spots, about 1/4″ across in front of the drivers door where a lot of CJs rust
Paint was wet sanded so it doesn’t have orange peel and shines great when clean, there are a few small flaws in the paint where the it looks like the paint gun threw out some solids
Overall the jeep looks very good to excellent

The jeep runs great and has lots of power, will easily spin the tires even with the rear differential locked
I drive it on sunny days to work or on errands, put about 3000 miles a year on it
Speedo was replaced with a new one in May of 2016, old one showed about 158000
Selling because I want something new to work on and need the money to finance a new project – wife wants a pool, we’ll see…

Price is firm
