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

Chrysler highlights Mopar lineup for SEMA

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 13:01:00 EST

SEMA is all about aftermarket parts, and in Auburn Hills that all comes down to one name: Mopar. After having previewed its lineup for this year's Vegas tuner expo earlier this month, Chrysler has now revealed what may not quite be its full dossier of modified show cars, but a good portion of them.
All told Mopar is preparing 20 vehicles for display at SEMA this year. Among them you'll find the Ram Sun Chaser, a 1500 Quad Cab show truck kitted out in two-tone orange and black paint, a roof rack for surfboards, onboard shower and convertible tailgate. The white Fiat 500L is called the Adventurer and is modified for a more rugged look that could hint at the upcoming crossover version. The Jeep Cherokee Trail Carver upgrades on the Trailhawk package with everything from roof basket to rock rails. To counterbalance the off-roaders, there's also a modified Chrysler 300S with a deep black paint job, special grille, Varvatos-edition wheels and more.
All four concepts details so far have Katzkin interiors as well, and there's also an unspecified Dodge Durango with a storm-trooper look in the gallery above. But for more details on what Mopar has installed on the Ram, 500L, Cherokee and 300, you'll want to delve into the press release below.

Chrysler's Woodward Dream Cruise festivities include Ram concept truck debut

Tue, 13 Aug 2013 07:00:00 EST

The streets will be crowded next weekend along Woodward Avenue in Royal Oak, Michigan for the 19th Annual Woodward Dream Cruise. As part of the run-up to the festivities, Chrysler has announced that all of its brands - Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Fiat, SRT and Mopar - will bring along their latest vehicles. Also included will be a collection of classic American cars and various activities for attendees at the official Chrysler location on the corner of Woodward and 13 Mile Road.
Special to this year, Ram brand director Bob Hegbloom and head of design John Dehner will unveil a Ram concept truck on Saturday. Chrysler will also bring Ryan Friedlinghaus of West Coast Customs fame along to show off a few custom Chrysler-made vehicles of his own. Fans of the brand on Facebook will get the chance to virtually customize a vehicle from the automaker's portfolio, with the winner getting their dream car built for them by Chrysler. Pretty cool stuff, no?
As in past years, Ford and General Motors will have an official presence at the event as well, and you can expect to see plenty of cars of all makes and models from all parts of the globe. The madness starts this Friday, August 16, from 4:30 PM to 10 PM, with the main event taking place on Saturday, from 9 AM to 9 PM. For more details on the show, including events and their times, check out the press release below.

2013 AEV Brute Double Cab

Fri, 11 Jan 2013 11:57:00 EST

These are the guys who bring an M777 howitzer to a knife fight. In terms of overall rugged utility, the all-new 2013 Brute Double Cab from American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) is about as overkill as they come, and we can't seem to get enough of the beasts that this company produces. Unlike most aftermarket firms, always striving to lower cost and increase volume (but at the expense of quality), Michigan-based AEV takes pride in its OEM-quality design, engineering, manufacturing and testing. Everything is as good, or better, than the stuff from the factory, and they have been doing it this way for more than 15 years.
Launched at the recent 2012 SEMA show was the 2013 AEV Brute Double Cab. Its debut marked the company's expansion to a four-door Brute on the newer JK platform (drawing inspiration from the Land Rover Defender 130). I recently spent a few hours with the new truck in sunny Southern California, though unfortunately, due to time constraints, I was limited to pavement-only driving impressions.
