Clean Scramblers are getting harder to come by these days.

With the introduction of the all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator, there has been a growing demand for classic Jeep trucks including the Comanche, J10 and the most iconic Jeep pickup of all time, the CJ-8. While many Jeeps are either overly modified or completely worn out, this 1982 Jeep CJ-8 listed through Art & Speed Classic Car Gallery looks like it's all original but hides a few tasteful modifications.

This Jeep appears to be fresh off a recent restoration showing a beautiful red paint job with gold metallic flakes, and it rides on a two-inch Trailmaster lift and new 31x10.50 tires for a perfect ride height regardless of whether or not it will be taken off road. It also has a single-piece fiberglass front clip, which makes it easier to access the engine compartment for maintenance and repairs – welcome to Jeep life! Other upgrades include new polyurethane bushings for the leaf springs and sway bar and a new fuel tank.

Despite all the new components, this Jeep is still ready for the trails with a 4.2-liter inline-six engine under the hood matched to the four-speed manual transmission. Rather than swapping out to a V8, this CJ-8 retains its factory six-cylinder engine, which is reliable and practically indestructible. This Jeep still uses its factory steel body, and the cargo bed is impressively clean for a 37-year-old pickup. Of course, being a classic CJ, this CJ-8 is ready for open-air driving with its factory steel removable full doors and a one-piece fiberglass removable hardtop.
