red 84 Jeep CJ7

Kandy Apple Red 1984 Jeep CJ-7



This jeep is originally from California and rolled into our shop with almost no rust. This was a  3/4 restoration and ended up looking like a brand new jeep without having to lift it off the frame.



It originally came with the hard doors and hard top and clean underneath and body in general, for the use of it. We gave it a 2-inch lift, using 33 BF Goodrich k-o tunes. we went with new 15′ steel wheels with a blacked out look. We went with the original CJ Red color and 4 coats of high-grade urethane clear coat and ultra fined and buffed to give it that “Show Car” gloss.



As we were doing this build you’ll see in the pictures we went with a brand new front windshield, rubber weatherstrips, wipers and wiper blades. The doors were taken apart and dismantled and all the glass was removed.

Every one of these cj7 s usually has two cracks on the inside of the door (fatigue cracks) right next to where the vent window locks into place right about 25% up the front of the door.
So, we welded those nice so they’re solid again. We then put them into primer and base and clear and then wet sanded and buffed and then we put them on a nice soft table and put the new glass back in clean. Typically, just to do the doors you’re looking at a day’s worth of labor probably a half a day to paint them and I’m gonna say a few hours to wet sand them buff and a few hours to assemble. The doors are not a 5-minute project; you can blow a day or a day and a half on a set of doors.



The jeep got brand new steel latches, hood latches, park lights, side marker lights and a full stainless steel exhaust with Bora stainless muffler. We redid the brakes and belts and belts and battery too.

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!!

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.
