    CJ-8

    Commonly referred to as the Scrambler. AMC's intent was to use the tried and true CJ series as a platform for a compact pickup truck. The Scrambler was introduced when the older J series pickup was still in production, but before the mid 80s Comanche was launched. The CJ8 had a 5 foot bed with a 1400 lb payload and was very popular with Jeep enthusiasts, but not the general public. The CJ8 could be purchased as a base SR model, SR sport or SL sport. 4 cylinder with 4 speed transmission were the base, but 258 6 cylinder and 5 speed or automatic transmissions could be added. All models could be fitted with half soft tops or half hard tops, full tops were not offered in the United States but were available on some export models. The spare tire was mounted to a swing away tire carrier like CJ5 and 7, but later models mounted the spare tire to the side of the roll bar. Renegade and Laredo packages replaced the SR and SL sport editions in 1985. The CJ8 is a very desirable Jeep these days, but with less than 30,000 produced they are some-what scarce. Base CJ8 in 1981 cost $7288.

    1980-82 GM 151 cubic inch 4 cylinder engine produced 82 hp @ 4000 rpm, 125 ft. lb. torque @ 2600 rpm. 1983-85 AMC 150 cubic inch 4 cylinder engine produced 105 hp @ 5000 rpm and 132 ft. lb. torque @ 2800 rpm. Horsepower and torque ratings for the 258 in-line 6 cylinder were 115 @ 3200 rpm and 210 ft. lb. @ 1800 rpm respectively. Transmissions consisted of SR4, T18, T4, T170 4-speed and T5 5-speed manual transmissions Chrysler Torqueflite 999 or 727 automatic transmissions. Dana Model 300 transfer cases were used. Front axle was Dana Model 30; AMC Model 20 was used for rear axle.


    104" wheelbase
    173" overall length and 69" wide
    81" length from door hinge to rear of vehicle
    103" windshield width

    I personally like the CJ-8 scramblers because the wheelbase doesnt have to be strectched for huge lifts and monster tires..I even like the wood bedcaps.Of which i have one original pair left

    T18 and TF727 were never offered in the CJ8. And its a T176, not T170. TF904 was also available with a 4 cylinder.
    81 CJ8 on fullwidths with TBI 360 and some other stuff.
