1982 DJ-5 Aloha, OR Make Offer


Needs a driveline at the very least.

“Hello, I’m selling my1982 right hand drive Am General Dj5 jeep. I used it to carry mail last year and it’s set up with a trey already. The tags are current but need to be renewed. They expire on the 15th of this month. It did run and drove until just recently. It was shaking so we took off the drive line and noticed it was broken and needed to be replaced. It’s been sitting for a while but should still start up. I never looked for the part and just didn’t have the time to get it replaced. Ive since became a regular and no longer have use for it so. It’s a fun little jeep. Please let me know if you would like to come check it out or have any additional questions.”

1984 DJ-5 Seattle, WA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2800.

Needs a few things fixed.

“Selling my ice cream business. It’s a 1984 DJ5 Jeep (Right Hand Drive) I have ran for five years and comes with my route in Seattle. Has a Star freezer that runs off of a built in inverter backed up by two batteries so you don’t have to unload the ice cream every night. Two coolers in the back gives you plenty of items for verity, up to at least 23. As you can see, kids love seeing this one coming down the street.
Runs good but it’s old and things like the backup lights, gas gage, need to fixed. I just keep it full of gas.
It made lots of money for me every summer.
Touch up paint included. ”

1983 DJ-5 Brownsmills, NJ **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $700.

Steve spotted this one. Body looks solid. Needs some work.

“I have a 1983 postal jeep it’s a 4cly automatic 2wd right hand drive that runs brakes work but at the moment doesn’t drive. It goes into gear but doesn’t go any were my guess it’s the torque converter. I don’t have the time to mess with it so I would like to get $700 firm for it. The body is in pretty decent shape there is some suffice rust but no holes. The rear cross member on the frame could use some reinforcement but the rest of the frame is fine. I have a clean title in my name if you would like to take a look at it please come with a truck trailer or flat bed and cash.”
