First up is this 1982 CJ7 Jeep Renegade. Well that's what it started its life out as, but now it resembles something else. Secondly there is the "monster truck" chassis which is also pretty impressive. These two projects are waiting to be finished, and are being offered reluctantly through Tuff Stuff 4x4 Spares in Adelaide.
So how did these projects come to be offered, you are probably asking?
Well, I guess there are plenty of grease monkeys out there that can appreciate that when you fall in love with four-wheel driving, spend $95,000 and follow up with a marriage breakup, you have one helluva unfinished project!
The CJ is finished in stunning Pennzoil Yellow and looks a treat. Most of the work has been done. It just needs a motor and a few finishing touches to drive away. The Jeep has a 50mm chassis to body lift kit and sits above a Jeep City raised suspension, twin Rancho and ProComp shocks on each corner! It is fitted with brand new Sunraysia rims (5) and tyres which have done zero kilometres. The front of the vehicle is a full tilt style and the roll cage is fully padded. This is fitted with a 'bikini top'. There is also a fully enclosed soft top and frame supplied, along with a swing away spare wheel carrier. The Jeep is fitted with super wide fibreglass flares (and the moulds are also included so you make additional flares for your mates), fibreglass half doors as well as full canvas doors.
Inside there is a sports steering wheel, bucket seats and rear 'dickie' seat for the kids. The gearbox is still in the vehicle and has been reconditioned, as has the transfer case and front and rear tailshafts. Now the 'Monster truck' chassis is sitting on 14" wide mags with 39" super wide brand new Mickey Thompson tyres (5). The chassis has been seam welded and plate strengthened, then hot dip galvanised. There is a 6" suspension lift, extended shackles all round and at the rear there are 10 shockers. The rear diff is a brand new Dana 60 and the front is a Dana 40. Both are fitted with the "rock crusher" diff, brace girdles and protector plates. The chassis has been treated to a full disc brake conversion as well as new brake lines and bias adjuster. A?large capacity alloy fuel tank sits at the rear ready for plumbing. The chassis can take any large capacity petrol or diesel engine. The project Jeep has been housed under cover for 5 years and is now ready for new hands to finish it.
