1982 CJ7 Renegade

I bought my '82 Jeep CJ7 Renegade when I was 17 years old. Unfortunately, I had a little too much fun with it and pretty much destroyed it before my 19th birthday.
When I turned 31 I resurrected the old girl and gave it a complete frame off restoration in my garage. I added a few things such as a fuel injected 350 V8 and a TH400 tranny with B&M floor shifter. I kept the dana 300 transfer case.
It also has 37" Toyo tires, American Racing wheels, a 4" suspension lift and a 2" body lift, Corbeau Racing Seats with Harnesses and a Bestop Supertop and Doors. It received a fresh coat of custom paint and I added the custom decals for good measure.
Now my Jeep is my favorite toy and gets lots of looks. It has received many awards at numerous car shows, but I still drive it like it was meant to be driven. I still want to upgrade the axles to Dana 44s and I haven't figured out what I want for bumpers and steps yet, but I will post more pics once they are installed.Larry's Comment: That's a very nice looking Renegade, Heath.
I'll bet it screams down the road with that 350 V8.
