A Smokey and the Bandit themed 1984 Jeep CJ-8 Scrambler on 44’ Super Swampers, yup I’m sold. As if that isn’t enough add in a 351 stroker pushing 525 HP through a 4 speed manual!
Seriously what’s not to love here? Part truck, part Jeep, 100% awesome! Sure the CJ-8 has some damage on the body and isn’t super clean. What do you expect out of a Scrambler built for Rock crawling and mimicking a car known for its impressive maneuvers. This isn’t a mall crawler after all.
All of that aside I’m not sure why they chose to replicate a GM product with a Ford powered Jeep. In fact this CJ-8 shares nothing in common with any of the movies at all, oh who cares this scrambler is too cool and is everything you could ever want!
If you’re like me and don’t care about historical accuracy based off of a movie, go find this Jeep Scrambler and give it a new home.
