THIS 1980 JEEP CJ-7 RENEGADE WAS PURCHASED NEW ON MAY 28TH, 1980 FROM McCULLOCH BROTHERS JEEP IN DECATUR, ALABAMA BY A GENTLEMAN FROM NEARBY HUNTSVILLE, AL. HE OWNED IT MANY YEARS AND THEN SOLD IT TO ANOTHER HUNTSVILLE RESIDENT WHO OWNED IT FOR SEVERAL YEARS. IN 1999 IT WAS PURCHASED BY ITS 3RD OWNER WHO LIVED JUST SOUTH OF HUNTSVILLE. THE JEEP HAD ALMOST 90K MILES ON IT AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE IN 1999. THE THRD OWNER OWNED THE JEEP FOR 13+ YEARS AND ONLY PUT 28K MILES ON IT. THIS JEEP HAS NEVER BEEN OUT OF ALABAMA! IT HAS NEVER BEEN EXPOSED TO ROAD SALT, HARSH WINTERS, ETC. IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN GARAGED AND HAS NEVER BEEN DAMAGED. IT STILL WEARS ITS ORIGINAL CHESTNUT BROWN PAINT AND ITS ORIGINAL RENEGADE STRIPES AND DECALS! THE BODY IS NEAR PERFECT AND STILL MAINTAINS ALL OF ITS ORIGINAL STEEL BODY PANELS/TUB. YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE HOW SOLID THE TUB IS! IT HAS NEVER BEEN RE-PAINTED OR UNDERCOATED. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A TRUE SURVIVOR CJ THEN LOOK NO FURTHER. HERE ARE SOME DETAILS ABOUT THIS RARE FIND,

THE PAINT AND BODY ON THIS JEEP ARE IN EXCELLENT ORIGINAL CONDITION. YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE HOW WELL THE PAINT STILL SHINES! IT REALLY IS BEAUTIFUL AND ITS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT IT IS 33 YEARS OLD! THE ORIGINAL RENEGADE DECALS ARE STILL NICE TOO. THE BODY IS NEAR PERFECT. THERE ARE VERY FEW DINGS AND VERY LITTLE RUST TO BE FOUND ANYWHERE. THE FRAME, BODY MOUNTS, FLOORBOARDS, ROCKERS, ETC. ARE ALL ROCK SOLID WITH NO RUST. WHEN YOU CRAWL UNDERNEATH THIS JEEP IT IS VERY OBVIOUS THAT IT HAS NEVER BEEN EXPOSED TO ROAD SALT, ETC. IT IS ALSO QUITE OBVIOUS THAT IT HAS NEVER BEEN IN THE MUD. IT IS SUPER, SUPER SOLID AND SUPER CLEAN UNDERNEATH. THE ONLY RUST TO BE FOUND ON THE JEEP IS UNDER THE FRONT WINDSHIELD ON THE WINDSHIELD FRAME. IT IS MINOR AND COULD EASILY BE REPAIRED IF DESIRED. IT DOES NOT REALLY AFFECT THE OVERALL SHARP APPEARANCE OF THIS CJ AND IS QUITE NORMAL FOR THESE 30 YEAR OLD JEEPS SO I HAVE DECIDED TO LEAVE IT ALONE. IT REALLY IS AN AMAZINGLY ORIGINAL AND CLEAN CJ. IT EVEN STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL SELLING DEALERS STICKER ON THE LEFT REAR OF THE JEEP! INSIDE YOU WILL FIND THE INTERIOR TO BE 90% ORIGINAL. THE DASH IS BEAUTIFUL AND THE ORIGINAL SPORT STEERING WHEEL IS STILL PRESENT AND LOOKS NICE. THE ORIGINAL PAINT IS STILL ON THE FLOORBOARDS FRONT AND REAR (NO RHINO LINING HERE) AND THEY LOOK CLEAN. THE ORIGINAL TAN DENIM SEATS ARE ALL THERE BUT THEY ARE SHOWING THEIR AGE. THE BESTOP SOFT TOP IS IN VERY NICE CONDITION AND THE PADDED ROLL BAR COVER WAS ADDED SEVERAL YEARS AGO BUT LOOKS NEW. OVERALL, IT REALLY IS CLEAN INSIDE. THE SPEEDOMETER STILL WORKS AS DOES THE TACHOMETER, WIPERS, TURN SIGNALS, LIGHTS, ETC. THE FUEL GAUGE DOES NOT WORK NOR DOES THE HORN.
THIS JEEP RUNS AND DRIVES WELL. THE 258 STRAIGHT 6 STARTS EASILY AND RUNS LIKE A TOP. IT DOES NOT SMOKE, RUN HOT, KNOCK, ETC. I REALLY HAVEN'T EVEN NOTICED ANY SIGNIFICANT OIL LEAKS EITHER. THE 4 SPEED TRANSMISSION SHIFTS WELL TOO WITH NO GRINDING. THE 4 WHEEL DRIVE WORKS JUST AS IT SHOULD TOO IN HIGH AND LOW RANGE. THE TIRES ARE LIKE NEW WITH LOTS OF TREAD REMAINING AND THE BRAKES FEEL FINE. I HAVE SOME MAINTENANCE RECORDS FOR THE JEEP AND ALL OF THE ORIGINAL OWNER'S BOOKS AND DOCUMENTS. AGAIN, THIS IS A VERY NICE UNRESTORED (ALMOST UNTOUCHED) CJ. THESE ARE GETTING HARDER AND HARDER TO FIND AND ARE ONLY APPRECIATING IN VALUE.

It's not unusual to feel extra patriotic this time of year, what with the Fourth of July being today and all. As if to celebrate, New York-based research firm Brand Keys conducted a study among 4,500 consumers about what brands they find to be the most patriotic. According to the Detroit Free Press, Jeep took top honors in this study, besting other American stalwart brands including Coca-Cola, Levi's and Hershey's.

Interestingly, the only other automotive brand to make the list was Ford, in the 16th spot (motorcycle fans take note - Harley-Davidson claimed the No. 13 slot). This means consumers found Jeep to be more patriotic than any of the brands in the General Motors portfolio, including Chevrolet, which has long used American themes in its advertising over the decades.
According to Brand Keys, Jeep came in "with a score of 98 out of 100 on a scale representing consumers' emotional engagement expectations," the Detroit Free Press reports. Be sure to read the report to scan the entire Top 25 list for yourself.
The 2014 North American International Auto Show is right around the corner, which means it's high time we found out which cars and trucks would be finalists for the prestigious North American Car and Truck/Utility of the Year awards.
Wed, 12 Mar 2014 11:29:00 EST
The finalists - three in cars and three in three trucks/utilities - are dominated by American brands, with two-thirds of the finalists hailing from either General Motors or Chrysler (don't worry Ford, there's always next year), while outliers from Mazda and Acura can be found in each contest. Here now is the list of finalists for the big prizes:
2014 North American Car of the Year:
The new Jeep Cherokee has been quite a success for Chrysler, but its factory workers are getting tired. The automaker has agreed to hire up to 1,000 part-time, temporary employees at its Toledo Assembly Complex where the CUV and Wrangler are built. It will allow the company to keep Jeep production moving, while giving laborers a break.
According to plant manager Chuck Padden in the Toledo Blade, full-time workers are regularly taking on 60 hours a week, and it's beginning to wear on them. "To get them more time off is important to us, to make sure they're refreshed, and can work safely," said Padden.
Chrysler has already hired 380 temporary, part-time workers for the plant, and 50 have been converted to full-time employees. The company is in the process of interviewing the rest of the new hires now and plans to have all 1,000 in place by the summer. They will work between 10 and 30 hours a week mostly on weekends for $15.78 per hour with limited benefits. The temporary positions will last "as long as demand continues for the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Cherokee," said Jodi Tinson, Chrysler spokesperson for manufacturing and labor communications, to Autoblog in an email.
