1984 CJ-8 Scrambler SR
The Scrambler appeared as a mid-year '81 offering and delivered a boodle more room on a 103.5-inch wheelbase. It came with a pickup cab (hard or soft) and a full-length top was rumored but never appeared except much later as an aftermarket product. It came as a base model with a standard four-cylinder, or in SR or SL trim with the 258ci as an option. Almost 28,000 were sold through 1985, but they didn't get hot until about 10 years later when they were discovered by trail runners who liked the extra wheelbase. Now, original CJ-8s are a hot collectible, like Dennis Collin's nearly perfect original '84 SR.
