With a 10-inch longer wheelbase than the CJ-5, the Jeep CJ-7 (1976-86) gave the Civilian Jeep much-needed interior space. The new tub also allowed for rectangular shaped doors, making it easier for folks to enter and exit the Jeep. Boasting options like a fiberglass hardtop, air conditioning, and an automatic transmission, the AMC Jeep CJ-7 was slowly evolving into a more passenger-friendly vehicle. You could also opt for such luxuries as steel doors, tilt steering, and high-back bucket seats. The CJ7’s longer wheelbase, combined with a wider track gave the Jeep better on-road manners, and a new “Quadra-Trac” system brought AWD mainstream. Engine options included, but weren’t limited to, the venerable AMC 258 4.2L inline six, 304 5.0L V8, and a new AMC 2.5L four-cylinder. The Jeep CJ-7 is one of the most influential vehicles in off-roading history. Make sure yours carries on that legacy with these restoration, off-road, and aftermarket parts.
