I want that so much it hurts! Does she have any interest at all in selling?

Thanks for sharing the photos. Nice front bumpers on the Overlanders. And the side steps on the Laredo go well with the front bumper. Always nice to see the parts unique to the Overlander.

From what I've seen the Laredo exports had Laredo on the hood instead of us having Scrambler on the hood.

Thanks Kim no probs ..will post a few more of the interior..Yeh it looks like the side steps was something Jeep Aus put on the Laredo Overlanders only to match there front bumper












Was the Laredo on the hood an export option only?

Im not really sure ..Its probably something Jeep Aus put together ..Its an 8/84 model(close to when Jeep aus was nearly finished up) So jeep aus probably had some Overlanders they couldn't sell and some left over Laredo options and threw them together ...I have only ever seen them in Australia but they could be elsewhere ??

I have some photos from back when I was pursuing mine of this jeep and 2 others in the exact same color all parked together I believe. A Laredo export cj8 is truly and incredible piece And this one is likely the best one left IMHO. The color you see there is common not necessarily common but it's a 1984 only color which makes sense for an Overlander and it's called cinnamon metallic. the interior would be the final year of "nutmeg" which was here in the states those years also. :drool: :bow: Thanks for sharing these are the best photos I've seen of this jeep to date :thumbsup:

I've seen more pics of that Laredo Overlander online. I don't remember where I found them exactly but I saved them. There was also a "twin" with it that had the original wheels.

Floor shift automatic like a Postal! Awesome aftermarket air conditioning!Aftermarket center console, but still has room for emergency break! Even has Laredo badge on glovebox!

And that rearend! the interior tub walls are carpeted! A Scrambler (Overlander) rollbar pad! And the bumperettes are complete and still there!

I'm in heaven.
