I purchased the Jeep about a year ago and I'm now shifting resources to another motorhead project. This is what's been done since:

New HD Rough Country steering linkage (drag link, tie rod, tie rods ends)
New Moog ball joints
New drive shaft U joints
New steering shaft
New exhaust
New fluids
New relays
New battery
New leaf spring bushings
Door wiper seals
Brand new black paint - Jeep, 1/2 doors & full doors all matching
Refurbished Hard Top - refinished entire surface w/ factory matte textured coating, new seals, new rear interior plastic shroud, new struts
Matching door locks (hard doors & tailgate)
New wiper arm assemblies
New plugs

Motobilt stubby front bumper


Hella Rally 1000 Black Out Fog Lights (not currently installed)

Rear spare tire carrier & Gerry can w/ carrier
Full size spare
Grant steering wheel w/ "Jeep" horn
OE shift knob
Old Man Emu 2" lift leaf springs
General 33" AT tires a/b 60% life left
Steering box reinforcement bracket
New sway bar bushings
New condition Quadratec soft top

Autometer gauges

Tuffy locking center console

Bimini top

Roll bar grab handles

Interior roll bar light

New hood prop rod & latch

Jerry can & rear mount

GPS Speedo (not installed yet)

Extras included ONLY for buy it now price:

Warn VR 8000 winch (brand new, not even used yet)

Holley Sniper Fuel Injection Kit – new in box, everything needed for conversion

Spare like new condition Dana 20 transfer case

The bad:

Leaks oil like most old Jeeps

Could use new shocks & steering stabilizer

Odometer does not work as it is aftermarket, original mileage unknown

Gas gauge does not work but will be fine once the sender is replaced (they’re cheap). The Ohms signal from the sender unit is not compatible with the Autometer gauge but it’s an easy fix – made even easier if done in conjunction with the FI install

This Jeep runs well, idles, shifts, stops, starts, steers all as it should. Brake lights, blinkers, hazards and e-brake all function as well. The work on the Jeep was made to bring it closer to stock and reliable while giving the nod to sensible upgrades. The soft top is not even installed as the Jeep is only driven on blue bird days. The Jeep is currently registered, insured and used as a weekend driver. This is a real Jeep and an engaging driving experience, so while this example is as manageable as this Jeep model can be, it's not a latte sipping cruise control kind of rig. Again, warn winch is NOT included in sale unless purchased for buy it now price.

Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. I will transport to local shipping facility but I will not make arrangements. If local, come by and check it out!

I do not need to sell this Jeep.....at all. So please serious inquires only. I have more photos and will take photos for serious inquires. Ask any questions at all, I want the buyer to be informed. Thank you.
