Jeep Scrambler Basic Info:

The Jeep Scrambler is a classic limited edition! There were only 27,792 scramblers produced from 1981 to 1986.



AMC built the CJ-8, which is a 103-inch-wheelbase pickup with plenty of rear overhang as an upgrade to the prior CJ-6.

The CJ-8 came in hard or soft top models. The Scrambler was a very modest seller, but an upswing in popularity in the 1990's has turned the old CJ-8 into a very hot item with lots of room for trick modifications, engine modifications and overall storage compared to other models.

From the windshield forward, the Jeep Scrambler is all Jeep in appearance. In soft top form it is America's only roadster pickup. I personally prefer the hardtop, but that's just my two cents.  In most of its essential mechanical components, the Scrambler is identical to both the CJ-5 and CJ-7. The standard engine was the good old Pontiac-built 82 horsepower 4 cylinder 151 cubic inch engine, optional engine was the 110 horsepower in-line 6 cylinder 258 engine. The AMC 304 and 360 were not given as a factory option.  Which is too bad because of the size.

The CJ-8 had a $7288.00 price tag back in 1981, $7922 with HT and options. While in 1983 it went up to $7563/$8392.  That's not much of a difference.  I only wish I bought one back them, but jeep performance chips are readily available these days.

The last 2 years of production saw price drops as each successive year, fewer Scramblers were produced.
Production Totals are as follows: 1981; 8355 / 1982; 7759 / 1983; 5405 / 1984; 4130 / 1985; 2015 / 1986; 128
