Nearly 30 years in production, the CJ-5 outlasted all the other Jeep
utilities by a comfortable margin. All told, 603,303 were manufactured,
making them the most plentiful CJ by a bunch. Many special editions
existed for the CJ-5, including the 1972 Super Jeep and the 1977-83
Golden Eagle. The CJ-5 has been the basis for countless trail buildups,
and probably logged more trail miles than any other Jeep. Shown here is
a '73 Renegade. This package featured a 304cid V-8 (the first V-8 in
a short-wheelbase utility, in 1972), mag wheels, and a host of other goodies that
included a Powr-Lok rear limited-slip. It belongs to Dan Chaffin of
Nathrop, Colorado. (Jim Allen)
