 Product Description

1976-86 JEEP CJ-5 & CJ-7 4X4 PERFORMANCE PORTFOLIO   

 

THIS IS A BRAND NEW BOOK WITH 140 PAGES.  THIS IS A MUST HAVE BOOK FOR ANY JEEP CJ FAN.

THE 4X4 MARKET IN THE USA CHANGED RADICALLY DURING THE 1960S.  HAVING STARTED OUT WITH A HEAVY BIAS TOWARDS UTILITY AND COMMERCIAL VEHICLES, IT GRADUALLY CHANGED INTO A MARKET FOR LEISURE VEHICLES.  WITH THE BIRTH OF THE RECREATIONAL SPORT-UTILITY, JEEP SHOE-HORNED MORE POWERFUL ENGINES INTO ITS EXISTING CJ-5 UTILITY, ADDED DECALS AND OTHER COSMETIC GIMMICKRY, AND TURNED IT INTO WHAT THE NEW BREED OF BUYERS WANTED.

HOWEVER, IT WASN UNTIL THE 1970S THAT THE CJ RANGE WAS TURNED OVER MORE OR LESS WHOLESALE TO THE RECREATIOINAL MARKET.  WHEN THE CJ-7 WAS BEING DESIGNED, IT WAS CLEAR THAT POTENTIAL BUYERS WANTED MORE INTERIOR ROOM-AND SO THE MODEL ENDED UP WITH AN EXTRA TEN INCHES IN ITS WHEELBASE.  THEY WANTED SIMPLER TRANSMISSION CONTROLS AND THE OPTION OF AN AUTOMATIC GEARBOX.  ALL THESE FEATURES WERE DESIGNED INTO THE CJ-7 WHICH APPEARED IN 1976-AND ITS CUSTOMERS LOVED IT.

AT THE SAME TIME, THE CJ-5 TOOK ON SOME OF THESE NEWLY-DESIGNED FEATURES, AND OVER THE NEXT DECADE (THE CJ-5 ONLY TO 1983) THE TWO MODELS WERE DEVELOPED VERY MUCH IN PARALLEL.  SPECIAL PACKAGE VERSIONS BEARING EVOCATIVE NAMES SUCH AS GOLDEN EAGLE, RENEGADE, LAREDO AND LIMITED ADDED EQUIPMENT AND COSMETIC FEATURES TO PLEASE BUYERS, AND BY THE END OF CJ-7 PRODUCTION THE STAGE WAS SET FOR THE MUCH MORE ROAD FRIENDLY YJ WRANGLER WHICH APPEARED IN 1986 AS THE SUCCESSOR TO THE MUCH-LOVED CJs.     . .
