Travel Off-Road or On-Road in a Jeep CJ
An AMC vehicle, the Jeep model CJ has a 10-inch longer wheelbase than the previous model CJ-5. Lengthening the wheelbase provided enough room to offer C7s with automatic transmissions. The longer wheelbase means you have extra room inside to pack sports gear, gadgets, and items you need for overnight stays. Along with the appeal to ones sense of adventure as well as owning and driving a classic Jeep, these J-series 4 by 4 used cars continue to hold their value to buyers seeking vehicles to travel on different terrains.Choose From These CJ-7 Models

- Transmissions: Vehicles include three and four-speed manuals, three-speed automatics, and all-wheel drive Quadra-Tac systems. When using four-wheel drive, drivers use a control lever to engage the system. Some models have permanent full-time systems that automatically detect traction depending on whether youre driving off-road or on highways.
- Transfer Cases: A component of the drivetrain, the transfer case ensures that power transfers from the transmission to the front and rear axles. Jeep used Dana 20, Dana 300, and Borg-Warner #1339 transfer cases in the CJ-7 models and compatible Dana axles to improve efficiency.
- Other Features: Laredo models have leather bucket seats, tilted steering wheels, and chrome bumpers and front grill covers. Golden Eagles include a hood eagle decal and a rear-mounted spare. These seventh generation cars have wider chassis that improve overall stability so drivers can maneuver safely in all types of weather.
Plaques installed on the dashboard display "Last of a Great Breed." That slogan hints at the Jeeps long-lasting appeal. Drive one to enter a mud racing competition or make a few modifications and travel over rocks. Moreover, you could load it with a surfboard for a beach trip, stock it full of camping gear, or load it with bags of groceries. Some owners use Jeeps to pull stumps, move equipment, and mow grass. If you purchase a Jamboree CJ-7, youll own a showpiece as the car was one of the rarest Jeeps made. It was the only model that AMC numbered.
