Legacy Classic Trucks Jeep Scrambler is No Yolk
At the recent Detroit Auto Show, Fiat Chrysler Sergio Marchionne confirmed that Jeep will finally (Finally!) be getting back into the mass-produced pickup truck business (as opposed to the kit-to-turn-your-SUV-into-a-pickup business) in the next few years. But if you can’t wait that long, you may want to talk to the crew at Legacy Classic Trucks about building you one of their tastefully resto-modded Jeep CJ-8 Scramblers.
The extended-wheelbase crypto-pickup version of the CJ-7 illustrated here has been completely disassembled and rebuilt by Legacy Classic Trucks using such modern componentry as hand-fabricated aluminum body panels, super-strong Dana axles and a Boeing Badger 3.0L V6 turbodiesel originally designed for military applications that’s been tuned by Gale Banks and company to produce an estimated 240 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft of torque (A 430 horsepower 6.2L GM LS3 V8 is also available.). Naturally, all these modifications run up a substantial bill: About $100,000 and up.
