It is always a shame when vehicles debut ahead of there time, as we have seen time and time again with models that disappear into obscurity before there chance to become cult classics. Feeling that the light dimmed too soon on one of these forgotten four-wheelers, Ball and Buck have announced that they will be resurrecting the Jeep CJ-8 Scrambler and will be rolling out a collection of m these pickups, complete with modern touches.

Finding donor vehicles across the country, the Ball and Buck CJ-8 Jeeps started their short-run lives as production vehicles that rolled off the line for 5 years in the early 1980s. The pickups receive one of three available power plants, in either a 4.2L I-6 from AMC, a 6.0L V8 GM LS3, or a 2.8L Cummins turbo-diesel package, giving plenty of trailblazing capability to the two-seater rig. Future owners will be able to select from four exterior colors and two trim stylings, allowing for a custom feel to the revamped retro ride. While it may not pack all of the tech seen in the newer Gladiator models, these historic Jeeps sure do have style for miles.
