It's definitely a Jeep thing, now you can understand.

When it comes to buying a Jeep, choosing between a Wrangler and CJ can be a hard choice sometimes because newer Jeeps have obvious modern conveniences while older Jeeps have classic styling and ruggedness. This 1983 Jeep CJ-7 restomod is the best of both worlds, and it's up for sale through Shelton Classics & Performance.

From the outside, this Jeep might look like a run-of-the-mill CJ-7 with a substantial lift kit, but this classic body design hides a completely modern driveline. Under the hood, this 1983 Jeep CJ-7 uses a fuel-injected 392 CID V8 that has been further upgraded with MSD and Mallory ignition components, and a set of dual Flowmaster mufflers should give this Jeep a mean exhaust note. This Jeep also benefits from four-wheel disc brakes with a Wilwood master cylinder, a five-speed manual transmission and a modern, high-dollar axles.

Despite being almost 40 years old, the body work done to this CJ-7 makes it look brand new. On top of that, this Jeep has a mean stance with its 15-inch American Racing wheels wearing some meaty 33x12.5 tires, and for a little extra traction, this Jeep even comes with a set of tire chains, too! The seats have been redone in a stylish two-tone material that matches the roll bar padding, and for the ultimate open-air experience, this CJ has a soft top with easy-to-remove half doors as well as a bimini top to add a little sun protection during topless driving.
