Experience The Legendary Jeep Scrambler

The Purest form of "Jeep"

Owned by discerning ranchers, such the one Nancy Reagan gave to Ronald Reagan for working their ranch outside of Santa Barbara, California. The 1981-1986 Jeep Scrambler enjoyed a longer wheelbase than typical Jeeps of the time, making it safer, more useful, and more pleasurable to drive. For Legacy Classic Trucks, this was the obvious starting point for creating the Ultimate Jeep. Now offered as a regular production vehicle from Legacy, these Jeep Restorations feature the finest in modern appointments in a classic package.

The Legacy Scrambler Conversion is a complete Turnkey vehicle, based off of the 1981-1986 Jeep CJ-8 Scrambler. Legacy can start with any Jeep CJ 5, 7, or 8 and turn it into a long wheelbase off-road warrior capable of going to the most remote places on the planet. Whether just cruising around Malibu or a distant expedition travel, the Legacy Scrambler Conversion is a highly configurable vehicle that will not disappoint.

Off-Roading Adventure

While driving a Jeep has always been about enjoying the elements, The Legacy does a surprisingly nice job of softening the experience.

Legacy Scrambler Conversion

Is there is anything more Honest and American than a Jeep? Maybe it is the wind blowing in your hair, or its ability to effortless whisk you into the backcountry. Perhaps it is because of its deep roots in the American Military. For all who have ever journeyed off-road, there is a story to be told about a Jeep. It’s the workingman’s hero, now refined and re-envisioned by Legacy Classic Trucks.
