AutoHunter Spotlight: 350-Powered 1977 Jeep CJ-7

Riding high on a lift and 35s


Featured on, the online auction platform driven by, is this 1977 Jeep CJ-7. In 2021, it received fresh paint, an interior overhaul, and an upgraded powertrain. Power is provided by a 350ci V8 crate engine and processed by a three-speed automatic transmission and a dual-range transfer case. Features include a custom forward-tilting front clip, a Bestop soft top, 35-inch BFGoodrich tires, a six-inch lift, and Bilstein shocks. Finished in Alpine White over a gray vinyl interior, this CJ-7 comes with a clear title in the seller’s name.  

As part of a series of updates completed in 2021, the body was refinished in Alpine White. It comes equipped with tubular chrome front and rear bumpers, a custom tilt-forward front clip, matte black fender flares, a gray Bestop removable soft top, and chrome nerf bars. More of the exterior is shown in a walk-around video provided by the seller. 

A set of 15-inch American Racing wheels with 35″ x12.50″ BFGoodrich Mud Terrain T/A tires help this Jeep get down the road and over trails.  

The refreshed cabin has gray vinyl seating as well as power steering, a stainless-steel dash fascia, a passenger-side grab-handle, a B&M shifter, a roll bar, newer carpeting, and all-weather floor mats. 

Important vehicle information is displayed on a 90-mph speedometer, a column-mounted 8,000-rpm tachometer, and gauges for the coolant temperature, fuel level, oil pressure, and voltage. The odometer shows 5,904 miles, but the true mileage on this CJ is unknown. 

The 5.7-liter small-block V8 crate engine was installed in 2021 along with the B&M three-speed automatic transmission. A dual-range transfer case sends engine power to all four wheels. The seller reports the fluids were changed, the spark plugs were replaced, and the timing was adjusted in June 2024. 

Additional upgrades such as a six-inch lift, a Rancho steering stabilizer, and Bilstein shocks help this Jeep handle on- and off-road. 

The auction for this 1977 Jeep CJ-7 ends on Tuesday, July 2, 2024 at 11:30 a.m. (PDT).
