ICON4x4Design's 1982 Jeep CJ7
Thought I would share this neat project we just completed for a client. He had owned this CJ7 since new, but felt that it's mechanical design was a bit archaic for his taste. So while it was an exceptional original truck with very low miles, he did not find it very usefull in modern driving situations. So we set out to restore it for him while upgrading much of the mechanical content, and restyling the cosmetics. We stopped short of a custom chassis, but redesigned just about everything else.
