The 1972 Jeep CJ5 is one rugged machine. This is a lifted 4×4 with V8 power and all the right accessories to get you into or out of trouble. And the best part is, it’s all wrapped in quite a handsome package.
This Jeep gets the look right from the first impression. After all, the dark green is a true off road theme – almost like it could hide amongst the pine trees. The paint also has an attractive metallic element that gives this a radiance that loves the sunshine. It’s handsome, and at the same time, it never loses any of that proper Jeep ruggedness. You also see this in the black elements, like the tubular front push bar with fog lights, upgraded tubular side steps, Renegade-style fender flares, and upgraded rear bumper with tow hitch. And while we like the look of dark green and darker accessories, those wide 15-inch American Racing wheels add both style and substance.
Inside are fresh-looking low back bucket seats with covers in a nearly bulletproof vinyl. The rear seat is also covered in matching vinyl, and so it’s just as tough. There are the right thoughtful and useful features, like the CB radio and the rear seat is offset so you can carry a large fuel can within the more secure interior. It’s easy to be out in nature with pieces like the all-weather carpeting and a bikini top to keep the sunshine off your shoulders. The roll bar is always a good addition, and the soft top frame and mounts even come with the sale. The full mix of features just seems right for an off-road ready Jeep, and best of all, the grip of the Lecarra steering wheel really lets you take control.
Under this hood is the Jeep/AMC 304 cubic-inch V8. This is a torque master, and so it delivers the kind of rock-crawling muscle you want in a Jeep. Plus, the engine bay has a clean look of a good investment. It includes newer items like the distributor, belts, hoses, wires, and an aluminum radiator. This is truly off-road ready with the two-speed 4×4 transfer case, lifted stance, Rough Country shocks, and a deep tread on the BF Goodrich All Terrain tires.
This CJ5 has a robust look that look great everywhere. So you know you want to grab the ultimate classic 4×4.
