1976 CJ-7 Renegade
Jeepdom leaped ahead for 1976 with the introduction of the CJ-7. With a wheelbase extended from 84 to 93.4 inches, full doors with roll-up windows, and an optional factory-installed fiberglass hardtop, the CJ-7 easily became an everyday Jeep, but one that didn't lose much trail prowess in the process. A full-time four-wheel drive system, Quadra-Trac (which used the Borg-Warner 13-39 transfer case), debuted as well the CJ's first automatic transmission option, the GM-sourced TH400.
