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

The Jeep Liberty has already had plenty of attention for possible fires thanks to the first-gen model's fuel tank, but now the midsize Jeep is under the microscope of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for another fire-related concern. NHTSA has opened an investigation for the 2012 Liberty after receiving two reports of electrical fires in the driver's door.
Wed, 04 Sep 2013 09:33:00 EST
According to the investigation summary, around 80,000 vehicles could potentially be affected by this problem. In both reported fires, the drivers noticed smoke and then flames from the master power window switch, and they had to pull to a stop and exit through the passenger side of the SUV. According to Autoguide, there was one injury to a motorist who suffered burned fingers while trying to open the driver's door.
Interestingly, the Dodge Nitro is not yet involved in this investigation, even though it was still around for the 2012 model year; the Nitro ended production in 2011 about a year before the final Liberty rolled off the line for the 2013 model year. Scroll down for the official NHTSA investigation summary.
Jeep will be bringing an all-new, limited-edition model to the European market called the Wrangler Polar. Based on the Wrangler Sahara and set to make its debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Wrangler Polar sports new Hyrdro Blue paint, gloss black 18-inch wheels, a body-color hardtop, and the regular mix of Mopar styling accessories. Billet Silver Metallic and Bright White are available for those that don't dig the glossy blue, while a two-door variant will be available in addition to the four-door pictured above.

The Polar's interior features similar tweaks; Pearl White contrast stitching can be found on both the seats and steering wheel, while ceramic White bezels and other accents give a nice contrasting look to the cabin.
Underhood sits an engine that should make American Wrangler enthusiasts weep - a 2.8-liter, four-cylinder turbodiesel. With 200 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque channeled through a five-speed automatic transmission, the Wrangler Polar should handle itself just fine on normal roads. British buyers will also be able to select the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. For rougher stuff, Dana axles can be found front and rear (Dana 30 up front and Dana 44 in back), while the Command-Trac four-wheel-drive system and its two-speed transfer case should be enough for when the roads disappear.
Just a year after it burst onto the scene, Jeep has already made a pretty substantial addition to its V6-powered Cherokee, which has proven to be an extremely popular seller so far for the brand, adding a new stop-start system for the midsize, off-road-ready CUV.
The addition of stop-start included a few aerodynamic tweaks to the Cherokee's polarizing body, resulting in a wallet-pleasing increase in fuel economy. According to the EPA, the front-drive, V6-powered Jeep will now return 21 miles per gallon in the city and 29 mpg on the highway, up from 19 city and 28 highway. Four-wheel-drive, V6-powered Cherokees, meanwhile, will now return 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, up from 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg.
With 271 horsepower, 239 pound-feet of torque and these newly enhanced figures, it's refreshing to see a larger, naturally aspirated engine that is still able to take the fight to today's crop of small-displacement, turbocharged four-cylinders.
