A Jeep with the looks of a Hummer H1, but scaled down in size. It makes for a very unique looking Jeep. There are all sorts of accessories for Jeeps out there from spare tire covers, wheels, tops, lights and lots more, but a full change of the body is a sure way to make your Jeep unique. Add a bright paint color and a 5.3L 'LS' engine under the hood, and you've got yourself a very unique Jeep.
The set of vertical openings which make up a grille area, framed by headlights at the front isn't the only change to the body. Box fenders at the front and rear have a look similar to an early BMW M3, especially with the smooth section between. The hood/front fender section is one piece that cants forward to expose the engine. It makes for easy access to the engine and front suspension. Not only is this a lifted Jeep that features a unique body, it's painted in a bright orange color that makes it hard to miss. The paint is in great condition - it's even and glossy throughout. The Outland soft-top also shows well with windows that are clean and clear, and is free of tears.
Just like the exterior, the interior is full of custom touches. The bright orange color from the exterior has been carried over to the dashboard, while a truck bed-liner spray coats the floors. 'CJ' embossed high back bucket seats are mounted on either side of the custom metal center section of the dashboard. The dashboard now houses all the gauges in the center, other than the tach that is mounted up near the “A-pillar” on the roll cage. The gauges are neatly laid out and evenly spaced. A stereo is mounted at the lower portion of the center dashboard which meets up with the custom center console. In the console is a B&M shifter, and selectors for the 4 wheel drive system. A standard bench back seat is mounted at the rear, which has nice upholstery just like the front seats.
The engine is a 5.3L Vortec V8 pulled from a 2002 Chevy Avalanche that had 51k miles on it. As you would expect, a whole lot of custom work was done to make the Avalanche drivetrain fit in the Jeep. A full binder of receipts accompanies the Jeep which show all the parts and work that has been done. Highlights under this Jeep are Bilstein shocks, Rancho Steering Stabilizer, polyurethane bushings, and a custom exhaust. The 15-inch black wheels are wrapped in 33” Toyo All Terrain tires.
Rugged looks reminiscent of the Hummer H1, a bright paint color, custom interior, and a V8 under the hood are just a few of the great attributes of this custom Jeep. It's a truly unique CJ with power under the hood to back up the tough looks. Ready for the trail, or a cruise through town, this Jeep is sure to turn heads and get you wherever you want to go.
