I am torn between selling this Jeep and keeping it.  It truly is an excellent running, smooth driving, gorgeous piece of classic American Motors Corp made machinery.  This is the type of Jeep that you can do anything you want in.  If you want to take it off-road, go ahead.  If you want to turn heads rolling down the highway, you can do that too.  This is that type of Jeep.  Now, if you're looking for a completely original, factory fresh AMC CJ-7 Laredo, look elsewhere.  Why? Simple.  This Jeep shows like an original Jeep Laredo, which it is, however has many upgrades that separate it from the others.  It IS a true 1985 CJ-7 Laredo complete with a working tachometer and clock. Also, has a gorgeous set of silver-grey Laredo Stripes completely contrasting the mirror-like red beautiful paint. Where it is different is in the interior, suspension, engine, and off-road accessories.  

A few brief notes on this Jeep:  I bought this Jeep from Texas where, I believe, it spent most, if not all of it's life.  It has a fully Rhino-Lined interior, has after-market seats, no dash-pad, and a highly powered JVC stereo with Polk Audio front speakers and Boss rear built-in speakers made specifically for CJ7s.  It has AMC factory air-conditioning which works great!  This Jeep has Rancho Shocks, a small and subtle shackle lift and sits on 31" BFG Mud-Terrain tires on 15" after-market wheels that look like factory Jeep rims. The tires have a lot of life left.  The transmission is a Jeep T-18 4-Speed trans.  If you are familiar with the T-18, it has a very low 1st gear extremely useful for off-roading, if you chose.  If normal street driving, you would start in 2nd gear.  I never once had this Jeep off-road. It also has a twin stick shifter for 2WD and 4WD High and Low Shifting.  All 4WD and 2WD work.  The engine has an awesome upgraded Clifford Intake, a Holley 4 Barrel carburetor, and an Edelbrock air-cleaner.  The bumpers on this Jeep are custom.  A Pro-9000lb Ramsey winch sits on the front of the Jeep and has a remote. The rear swing-away bumper is custom also and capable of housing a larger tire.

Please look closely at the pictures and feel free to ask as many questions as you wish.  I could go on and on about it, but truth be told, most people want to see good pics.  If you live close-by, I invite you to drive it.  If you're a distant bidder, I want you to know what you're bidding on.  I have every receipt on the work that I have done to it over the last 2+ years. My father was in the automobile business for over 40+ years before he passed.  I learned how to take care of a car from him.  I took care of this Jeep.  If you want to talk about it in person, please contact me at 610-322-8702. Thanks very much and good luck! Lee

Auto critic calls out Corvette, Mustang and Cherokee faithful

Mon, 26 Aug 2013 15:30:00 EST

Most automotive purists fear change, but not without reason. Change, after all, did kill big-block V8s, along with most station wagons and manual transmissions. But change has also brought with it far more performance, safety and fuel economy - not to mention ridding the world of shag carpet interiors, bias-ply tires and those horrible motorized seatbelts of the early '90s.
By this time next year, the Chevy Corvette, Jeep Cherokee and next-generation Ford Mustang will all be on sale and will all, in some way, have angered or offended purists. To those critics, Mark Phelan of the Detroit Free Press is preemptively telling them to stop complaining - at least until they've all been driven. From the Corvette's square taillights and the Cherokee's radical nose to whatever pony car purists will harp on the 2015 Mustang for, Phelan's column points out the positives of automotive evolution and the negatives of staying the course for too long. That's fair enough, but do you think Phelan is on point, or all wet? Head on over to the Detroit Free Press to read his words, then have your say in Comments.

Another crazy custom Jeep Wrangler spotted in Morocco

Sun, 03 Mar 2013 19:57:00 EST

What in the world is the vehicle you see above? Well, um... yeah. We have no idea. According to the video description from YouTube, however, it's a modified Jeep Wrangler, and it comes from the same person who created the equally insane side-by-side merged Wrangler you saw here.
We can clearly make out the Wrangler-shaped passenger compartment up top, but as for the other bits and pieces that make up this rather amazing machine, your guess is as good as ours. At the very least, it seems to us that the car's wheelbase has been given a significant stretch, and the grille may have come from an International LoneStar Harley-Davidson Special Edition semi truck.
What other components are sourced from the massive International hauler? No idea. We suggest you check out the video below and draw your own conclusions. Oh, and if you've got any other ideas, feel free to let us know in the Comments.

Jeep launches new ad with unreleased Michael Jackson track

Fri, 09 May 2014 12:45:00 EST

We've recently heard much about how Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne plans to pump up the volume on Jeep sales, inaugurating new models and global dealerships. But that's the stuff outlined in five-year plans; right now, advertising and special editions are at the fore, and the late Michael Jackson, too. Jeep has begun airing two commercials to push its Altitude Editions, Call of Summer and Lovers of the Game, that feature the song "Love Never Felt So Good" from Jackson's upcoming album of new music.
A little more star power - and timely, too - comes from Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving. While Call of Summer features a few short shots of the former Rookie of the Year and two-time NBA All-Star, Lovers of the Game is all about his white Wrangler Altitude Edition and wrangling shots. You can watch both spots below, and if you want to hear the rest of the music track before the album hits, you can download it from iTunes.
