Fair Weather Daily Driver

Jp Magazine - - Jeep Shots -

“My wife im­me­di­ately adopted it for her daily driver,” says Sonoma, Cal­i­for­nia, res­i­dent Tom Fogle, in his sub­mis­sion of their 1983 CJ-7 Rene­gade. This beauty was pro­vid­ing trans­porta­tion as a hunt­ing ve­hi­cle in northern Cal­i­for­nia when it was ac­quired by the Fogles in 2017. The paint and body de­cals are all orig­i­nal, and Tom says there isn’t any body dam­age. The en­gine has un­known miles and runs very well, but needed a se­ri­ous emis­sions up­grade to pass the rigid Cal­i­for­nia smog test­ing, so they in­stalled a C.A.R.B. le­gal throt­tle body in­jec­tion sys­tem and it passes with fly­ing col­ors. The orig­i­nal trans­mis­sion was re­placed with a five-speed man­ual at some point in its pre­vi­ous life. They have plans for a road trip through the South­ern Cal­i­for­nia desert and the Sier­ras. Happy trails!
