1986 Jeep CJ-7 (last year of the CJ)
This Jeep lived north west of Austin for years under cover. I bought it and took it south. Only minor surface rust was on the floor boards under the roll bar there is no rust through on the tub. The frame is also solid. There are two small spots of rust one each side. The driver’s side near the “J” in the Jeep emblem and the passenger’s side near the rear of the door opening. The hood has a small spot of rust through on the passenger’s side. The windshield frame is rusted out on the lower left side. These are very minor and easy to fix.
I used this jeep mainly for hunting. It has not been plated since 2011. It has spent the last 5 years at my deer lease. I have verified that all lights work as they should, horn works, a new set of wiper blades and it should pass inspection. Yes it leaks yes it squeaks it is 32 years old.

This Jeep was lifted 2” with Old Man Emu YJ springs. The front springs are longer and wider than the CJ springs resulting in a better ride. When I lifted it I chose the heavier springs for the hard top and winch.
This Jeep could be used for hunting, off-road or restoration. The title is a “Rebuilt Salvage Title”. I bought it this way. The fact that the tub and frame were void of any major rust was enough for me to look past the “Rebuilt Salvage Title”. The burning question: Why are you selling? I have multiple 4x4 vehicles and a new driver coming up. I need the space in my fleet and my current hunting situation doesn’t have the need for the Jeep that I had in the past.
Jeep prices are all over the place and subjective to seller and buyer. That said I’ll start at $5000.
New TWT price $4,000.
