Jeep has been at the forefront of the four-wheel drive train. The company was founded in 1945 to provide a cheap and effective 4x4 vehicle during World War II. The Jeep name itself was slang used by US Army soldiers for new vehicles. The brand also inspired the British Series I Land Rover. When Jeep launched the first ever CJ, which stands for Civilian Jeep, in 1945, it inadvertently became the first and the oldest four-wheel drive mass-production SUV. Their CJ series were built well into 1985, while the Jeep CJ-7 was produced from 1976 to 1986 and featured many variants. Here's a chance to own a fabulous 1986 Jeep CJ-7 Renegade with a few tasteful upgrades and 186,000 miles on the odometer.
This 1986 Jeep CJ-7 Renegade comes coated in Brilliant Blue. At the same time, the soft top is finished in black. The Renegade decal can be seen on the sides of the hood, while a blue and white strip runs the sides of the Jeep. The front fascia features the instantly recognizable Jeep large grille flanked by round KC HID headlights, and in the lower center, a 20" LED lightbar is attached for greater visibility. Bumpers are an important addition to any 4x4 vehicle; this features a Smittybilt powder-coated front tubular bumper with a bull bar. At the back can be seen a full-sized spare wheel and the same Smittybilt powder-coated tubular bumper for the rear alongside the bull bar. The seller reports that the rear is lined with a Rhino bed liner. Once the soft top is removed, the integrated cage is also seen to be painted in the body color. The interior features a spartan finish in simple black and blue. Adding a little bit of modernism to the aftermarket Armor glove box and the center console is a new Alpine audio system with Bluetooth, USB, AUX input, and a wireless remote control for the LED light bar.
The Renegade variant of the CJ-7 came with a few engine options. This particular 1986 Jeep CJ-7 Renegade bears the fuel injected 4.2L AMC inline-6 engine coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission. Upgrades include a Holley Sniper fuel injection system, a Holley Sniper ignition system, and a new wiring harness.
