Jeeps History: 

Willys Overland built the first prototypes for a commercial version in 1944 after being one of the main two manufacturers of the military jeeps at the time. Sadly, that jeep line ended in 1984. But don’t doubt a thing, because they look and drive beautiful, then and now. In fact, they were called “America’s Workhorse” and described as being amongst “…the most successful utility vehicles ever made.” Also, CJ stands for Civilian Jeep and fits perfectly with its description!!

“The Beast” CJ-7 Jeep Restoration:

This jeep restoration was done for a dad and his two sons.

We installed 35 inch BFG ko2 all-terrain tires after installing a 4-inch suspension as well as a 1-inch body lift kit.

When we delivered the car, nothing but laughter and joy came about. Watch the video below to hear from the client himself!

1984 CJ-7 Nevada Jeep Restoration:


At the time of this jeep restoration, we chose to restore this Jeep as a ¾ restoration to keep the buy-it price reasonable. This Jeep ended up being perfect for a real Jeeper.

The jeep body came into the shop pretty much rust free.  In fact, we chose to leave all the factory fusion welds on the rear quarters from the factory assembly as is. We also kept the original “sunshine” yellow color.what we did on this was a full strip down and all moldings all off, the windshield was taken apart and all new rubber was put around the windshield. All the lights have been replaced.

Before painting, we disassembled the truck, took the top off and prepped the paint. Then we totally D chromed, primed and we did the base and clear coat on the Jeep.

Everything works and there were no air gaps or rattles. This jeep also got stainless hinges, cool
aftermarket stainless mirrors and a nice set of Pro Comp 33 twelve fives tires.

It left with new plugs, wires, fuel pump, air filter, oil change, new alternator, serp. belt, antifreeze, differential oil, rough country leaf springs, a new set of shocks, awesome exhaust with a stainless steel catalytic converter, with the 6 cylinder header with the exhaust custom bent to fit into the cat.


Here is a walk around the yellow CJ7 Jeep after it was restored:

1984 Renegade CJ7 jeep restoration: 

This jeep was a 3/4 restoration as it came with a reman motor and a new clutch when it came into the shop. We gave the renegade fresh paint, new rims, and tires, shocks, brakes, wheel cylinders, plastic frame cover and new lights. We also put all new radiator support grommets and new battery and we did a complete tune-up.

  3. Randy Jarrell

    I have a 1983 CJ-7 that I believe was an original California Jeep. It’s been well taken care of and has a solid body and frame (I think). I would love to turn into a reliable daily driver with a more reliable engine, radiator (maybe electric fans and efi), cleaned up interior, small lift (2.5”) and classic Jeep stripe graphic pkg, nice soft top, bikini top and soft doors. A/C would be nice option as well.

    • John Russo

      and we can set up a time to talk ,I will also reply back with some info
      thanks John
