I never even new that some of these jeeps existed. however a simple full length hard top could be a nice project for our usage with plenty of domestic support.
As much as a rarity as the "Alaskan Tops" are, Flagstaff P.O. had three of them at one time.Originally Posted by Nullifier
I've always lust after CJ-8s.
That thing is AWESOME!!!
I think I'm in heaven.....I've always told my girlfriend that I wanted jumpseats in a Jeep!

Everything happens for a reason...someday we will all figure it out.
A CJ-8 is on my list of 'must owns'.
I have one scouted out, copper in color with a full hardtop and less than 70K miles. But he won't sell.
The one linked above is a really nice example of a resto'd Scrambler. Great link -

Here's another awesome CJ8...
That link shows just how much restoration and modification was done. The guy does AMAZING work (he's got my Jeep at the moment).
That thing is sweet I been eye ballin it when I found it from one of your other posts about that company.
I thinks you need to update your location brotha Jason.. Atleast I hope your still home, rite?

...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'

Nope, I'm back in the sandbox. I've been here over a year and, believe me, I'm asking myself daily what I'm still doing here. I keep coming up with the same answer...lack of other things to do. hahahaha Besides, my Jeep is undergoing an engine swap (5.7L V8 Hemi), so I might as well hang out here in the desert until it's done.
Brad (the Overbuilt Customs guy) is going to start working on another CJ8 soon. The guy he's building it for had him build a red YJ in the past and he's selling that one...something like $50K. I think the red YJ is on the site...sweet rig.
I got to ride in the blue TJ while I was home last month. Thing is INCREDIBLE...will beat a sports car quite easily with that 427 under the hood. Gives you a big grin just sitting in the passenger seat.
I really like that hard top on the CJ8 in the first post...hadn't seen that before. I'm a fan of hard tops because the soft tops drive me insane (first 3 Jeeps had them).
That's a pretty cool looking Jeep. I've never seen one of those hardtops either. When I lived in Alaska I don't remember any of the mail trucks looking like that.
Now that is a travesty.<snip> ...comfortably carry the entire family to soccer games and other errands. <snip>
