3 Speed Manual | 4x4 | Low Original Miles | Price Dropped

In brief: This is NOT a project Jeep, so unlike most used Jeeps this one is good to go without any hidden costs. But keep in mind that this wasn’t built for the showroom. I drove the Jeep 4-5 times a week, so most of the professional work/modifications was done for safety and driveability.

You’ll find more information below. It’s not exhaustive so please get in touch if you require further detail or have any questions.

Here are the basics:

  • Clear California Title in my name and in hand.

  • Registered until 07/17.

  • Passed California smog certification 07/16/15.

  • Less than 63,000 original miles.


  • Purchased a couple of years ago as a hobby (3rd owner).

  • All of the recent work was done at local specialized shops: Jeeps R Us and Jeep Care. Further most of the invoices have been documented for verification.

  • I’m moving out of now California, so unfortunately I can’t take her with me.
