Well, it may be worth 4 grand, but how hard has it been run? If you want to use the stuff, make sure it wont require a rebuild to make it run well after a month. Think of why the guy put on a lift and bigger tires? Was the engine throttled? I looked at alot, and thought that a lift and better tires was the way to go, then I remembered to see how hard it had been run, turned out most of them had been beaten to shit.....Just somehting to think about.

I went and looked at the same Jeep three years ago, or at least the same on paper. One thing, this one had a re-built 304.

Asking price was $2999.99.
304 was shot after the junk re-build. tires were bad. didn't have any mirrors. All said I offer $1500 and with a NO I walked away.

The year of the CJ-7 matters less than what condition it is in. I just bought a '77 CJ-7 with a 304 V-8, auto trans, stock Borg Warner Quadratrac transfer case, stock Dana 30 front axle and AMC model 20 rear axle. The body is in absolutely pristine perfect condition with no dents, no dent repairs, and no rust inside or out. I brought a creeper with me when I looked at the Jeep, and spent as much time looking at the bottom side of the Jeep as I did the top side, and there is NO rust anywhere. The engine runs good, the transmission works like it should, everything seemed ok, and the 32x11.50 tires are brand new and mounted on very nice aluminum wheels. I've been looking for a CJ-7 for five years, and have never seen one in this good of shape. When I found this one I bought it the same day I first saw it. It did cost me $5000 though, so they can be expensive if they are in good enough shape. You can see a picture of my CJ-7 on this web page:
