Car Sales, RestorationApril 18, 20170 Comment

This Week we have a ’77 Renegade CJ-7 Jeep Restoration in Ocala Florida at Palm Beach Customs


This 1977 Renegade is an automatic with a 304 V8 engine. We say this about all the Jeeps that come through, but seriously, this one might be our favorite!








So far, this CJ-7 Jeep just came out of Stage 1 and went in for the final paint and buff. Then it’s assembling all the goodies.



More About This 1977 CJ-7 Jeep Restoration in Ocala Florida at PBC


This 1977 Jeep CJ-7 is built like a Mac Truck!



It has the original 304 V8 engine that has been completely gone through with a fresh rebuild. Along with Edlebrock aluminum intake and Edlebrock CFM carburetor.


This is a great ride for all you Jeepers who don’t want to shift every minute of the day. Of course it has plenty of power with the V8. This is nice, sit-back, put it in drive, and go ride.



The 1977 Jeep CJ-7 has:


Mild 2-inch, brand new set of Ranchero leaf springs and shocks with a set of Yokohama 33x25 sneakers with black satin and pearl charcoal, two-tone rims


We gave it a fresh tune up, all fluids, anti freeze were put in and we're sending you off with a full tank of high-octane gas.


Nice stainless MagnaFlo muffler with a custom bent rear tail-pipe.


Fresh set of offroading "racing" style front seats

The nerf bars and the front and rear bumpers have been stripped down and base coated black with a satin, high-grade urethane clear (including the spare tire rack)


New spray-on bed liner in the Jeep tub. These are durable and easy to clean!  We’re a certified Reflex spray-on bedliner retailer and we've done over 3,800 spray-on liners.


On this Jeep, to give it a little bit of character, we sprayed the dash a gunmetal gray and followed with clear. Also included is the factory Jeep dash-pad with the logo. And matching gunmetal gray hardtop.


The window frame was stripped down to bare metal, epoxy primed and painted inside and out with

fresh paint and clear. We put in a new glass and necessary weather stripping.



Mechanically we went through the jeep as well:


It has newer rotors and pads in the front with all new stainless brake lines.

The brakes in the back are nice.

The whole underside of the jeep was beautifully clean – absolutely no rust. The original chalk markings were still there.

The steam cleaned underneath and painted with black undercoating and 98% of all the fusion welds were removed


Virtually no bondo in this jeep



We used professional grade, high-quality urethane primer then we went with high-grade urethane base coat and high solids clear coat. Just the paint for this jeep is worth $7,500



See the complete pile of parts:

  • New stainless steel hood latches
  • New tail light lenses
  • New front park blinker lenses
  • New side mark amber lenses
  • New side mark red lenses
  • New set of window glass weather stripping and NEW glass
  • Brand new cowl weather stripping that mounts under the window frame
  • Right and left front, complete, door weather stripping kits
  • (Include inner door jam rubbers, outer belt molding, inner belt molding, full channel-run weather stripping)
  • New tailgate weather stripping
