|Jason, MN||I have been lucky enough to purchase a 1986 cj 8 in MN. It is in fair condition with the exceptional frame rust from to many mn winters. It is light brown in color, with an rebuilt motor that runs like a top. It has a pro comp lift with con-fer shackles riding on 31 inch tires. I plan on restoring it this winter and should have it on 35 inch tires by spring. Just thought I would give you an update on my '86 scrambler. I have it disassembled and have the frame almost done. I had to make my own frame from about the middle, back (due to rust). I am using 2X4 3/16 thick square tubing. The only thing left to do on the frame is sand blast and paint. The tub ended up a complete rust bucket that someone tried to cover up with body filler. I think I might go with a fiberglass tub if I can't find a decent used one. If you know of one sitting somewhere please let me know.|
|was: John Jacott||It was destroyed in a collision :( Then I heard it was sold to the Jeep Museum in Toledo. John says "Wrecked, fixed and sold."|
|Hank, CA||I have a bone stock cj8 with a full hard top and considerable tub rust. The frame has surface rust only. It has the wide track diffs and 6 cyl and runs like a top (150k). It also has a clock and tach. This is a coastal California truck. I don't want to sell it, just curious. I plan to fix the rust, install a fuel injection, and lift it.|

I'm told that CJ-8s were built on exported licenses until 1990. I have at least one 1990 registered, built in Israel.
