For pure off-roading fun, there's still only one Jeep. Vehicles like this ultra-clean and entirely stock 1986 CJ7 Renegade have been a staple of having fun in the mud for decades, and even with all of today's technology and performance, they're still the vehicle to beat when the trail truly turns against you.

Finding an all-steel CJ that hasn't been bashed to death on the rocks, modified beyond recognition, or eaten alive by the tinworm is no easy task, yet this bright Sebring Red soft top shows off its original bodywork with pride. Sure, it's probably gone to a few remote places, but nobody has abused this Jeep, and the extra details throughout indicate that someone truly loved it. The rockers are protected by bright metal panels, and the paint has a great shine because it's brand new and was professionally done. With basic panels and soft doors, there aren't really any panel gaps to align, but the hood snugs down easily with the chrome latches, and the drop-down tailgate is in excellent condition. Simple bumpers have been fitted so as to be both light and effective, and the traditional Jeep grille nestled between those fat fenders is flanked by a set of KC off-road lights. Rubber fender flares cover the tires and keep the mudslinging to a minimum, and you'll probably want to lower the windshield for the full frontal experience. Alternatively, you could install the hardtop and steel doors and it's a fantastic foul-weather warrior, too!

Inside, it's rugged and basic, with black vinyl seats designed to be cleaned with a hose. Rubber floor mats are there for the same reason, but that doesn't mean the CJ is bereft of comfort and convenience features. There's a full array of gauges, which are critical when you're out in the wilderness, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo that still sounds decent, even in the wide-open Jeep's cabin, and yes, this one carries ultra-rare factory A/C! The top and matching doors are relatively easy to remove and stow if you've got a buddy, and give the Jeep its traditional military-bred look and offer impressive all-weather comfort. The paint on the floors and the upholstery on the seats are simply too nice to be original, so there's been a good amount of money spent on it recently and it shows.

Power comes from AMC's durable and reliable 258 cubic inch inline-six, which admittedly doesn't win any horsepower contests, but when you're going off-road, horsepower isn't exactly what you need or want. Instead, you want a smooth flow of power (which this engine delivers), good low-speed torque (in spades), and bullet proof reliability (check). It's all original and nicely maintained, and again there are signs that this Jeep was not abused or neglected, and there's a lot of new stuff under the hood. Underneath, it's extremely solid with a stock 4-speed gearbox, 2-speed transfer case, and stout axles at both ends, all of which make this CJ highly maneuverable in the brush. It's not all jacked up and even the exhaust system is a stock replacement setup, more proof that this Jeep lived most of its life on pavement. Flashy chrome wheels dress it up and wear big 30x9.50x15 Michelin LTX radials.

Go ahead, just try to find a loaded CJ7 Renegade with a hardtop. Now try to find one that remains as-built and beautifully maintained with no stories attached. The class just got a lot smaller. Better yet, according to the clean Autocheck, this one boasts only 2 owners in it's life and have obviously been very well cared for. Call today!
