    Moved and can’t keep this. 6 cylinder auto. 93,500 miles. Comes with another engine and transmission that I bought because the current transmission sometimes heats up on highway trips and acts weird. I never had a problem driving it locally, so never put in the replacement. 50 or 60k on the new drivetrain.
    Also comes with a transfer case from a truck. Never looked into the wether the splines match up, but it does have some beefier parts that can swap into the one on the Jeep.
    Stock DANA 44 rear and 30 front. 33x12.5 tires. Two spares. 1¼” body lift and it’s on JK springs for a little suspension boost. Comes with 4” springs but needs shocks for them. Currie steering linkage. Front fenders are bolted on sheet metal so You can bend them back after driving through the woods. Dash is half gone since I was gonna do a flat dash and an iPad as gauge cluster. It’s a Jeep, so the Check engine light is on because of the evap emissions system. Oh, and it does have matching doors. Jeep is currently in Dudley, NC

    I’m holding out for $4500, but make an offer if you don’t think that’s fair.

    Feel free to contact me with any questions.

    Does this have a title? Can it drive on the highway?

    Titled. Had a tag on it. passes safety, but I don’t think it will pass emissions until that evap leak is fixed.

    Did you do the modifications? How long have you owned it?

    He’s owned it longer than what should’ve been allowed.

    If you get hard up and needing some cash, I’d be willing to rehabilitate it. But it won’t be anywhere near the proximity of 6k.

    Jeez, story of my life.

    Some surface rust on the floorboards and the rear frame crossbar behind the bumper. I’ll see if I can get someone to get a picture of the engine compartment. (I’m in New Mexico now)

    Bought it in 2009. It started as a daily driver and then became an off-road toy and farm truck. I’ve done all the “modifications”, in that I put stuff on when I needed it and removed things as they weren’t needed. I was trying to strip it down to the basics and my dream was to tube out the back and make it an off road only buggy. But dreams take more money than I was willing to commit.

    Yeah, figured treating an LJ like a side by side would piss off some Jeep fans, but it served my purposes well.
    So what’s your offer?
