The CJ7 came out in 1976 and was an upgrade to its predecessor the CJ5. The CJ-7 had a 93.5 inch wheelbase and was seen as the most exhilarating development in the 4x4 market in years. It shared many features of the CJ5, including the engine and transmission, but had many changes such as wider door openings, more leg room for front and rear passengers and an optional plastic hardtop.

The CJ7 was the first CJ that offered both the Quadra-Trac and Hydra-Matic four-wheel drive system. The standard base motor was an inline six cylinder that was 232 cubic inches through a bore and stroke of 3.75 x 3.50 inches. This engine produced 100 bhp @ 3600 rpm. Since this really didn't cut it for most jeep drivers, there was always the optional 258 cubic inch inline six cylinder or the 304 cubic inch V8. There were also trim and convenience packages such as the Renegade package. Locking rear differentials and winches were available options too which most buyers wanted for off-road use.
