1986 CJ7 Laredo
1986 CJ7 Laredo, Owned by Subash, he sent us the Jeep to have a budget oriented “mostly” cosmetic restoration done. This Jeep arrived with a 3″ body lift, lots of aftermarket chrome a set of 33″ tires some bad floor rust issues and a old Maaco paint job. Working within the budget we wet sanded and buffed the older Maaco paintjob, Added new Laredo stickers, removed the body lift, putting it back to factory height with polyurethane body mounts. We also replaced the spring bushings with polyurethane with a set of HD shackles, and new shocks. We cut out and replaced the rusty areas and sprayed the interior in Black bedliner. Reupholstered portions of all three seats while utilizing the factory silver seat stripes. Removed the chrome dash center piece and installed a correct black plastic one with all new vent/def/fan pull knobs and function indicators. With the removal of the body lift we put on the factory correct size and style Goodyear tires, polished the wheels, found a good wheel for the spare, and added new lug nuts to give it that new shine. Repair of the window regulators with new felts and window cranks. Removeing the aftermarket tube steps, chrome brush guard and all the chrome hinges and replaced with factory style parts, gave the Jeep that stock look we were going for. Only using quality materials like pro base factory black with high end clear paint. A new Stainless Steel front bumper was added to finish off that factory look. A tune up, oil change and recharge of the A/C rounded out our budget restoration of this very rare Laredo with automatic, A/C, ad the coveted Dana 44 rear.
