Everything works on this baby. No major issues, has been well-maintained and cared for. Used off-road but never abused. Mechanically very sound and extremely well built. Cosmetically no holes or dents. Has developed some surface rust since I bought her. If you want a head-turner/show-stopper, this 'lil Jeep only needs some fresh paint and a new soft top. However, as a trail Jeep, she's perfect just as she is. Just the right amount of "patina" in order to avoid worrying about scrapes and dings off-road but not enough to make her look ugly. Same with the soft top. All reciepts have been kept. This is a very reliable Jeep, both on and off road. It has an overdrive so she cruises down the highway with the newer Jeeps just fine with no wobble or wander. Purchased this 'lil Jeep several years ago and shipped it from Washington state to upstate NY. Have loved it ever since. Hate to sell this, but am planning to retire soon and have to down-size.

This Jeep has been built by/with some of the best names in Off-Road engineering, such as Advance Adapters, Novack Enterprises, Walck's 4WD and Olympic 4WD (have all reciepts). Comes with a lot of spare parts, etc. if interested. There are no major mechanical issues at all. Very reliable both on and off road. Has a Warn overdrive for the highway, welded-in full roll cage, Warn 8,000 lb. winch, Super Swamper radial tires X5 with a custom built rear swing-out tire carrier. Rancho lift. Ride is comfortable with Baja-style bucket seats and upgraded guages. She has a throttle lock, line lock, brake-lock and a working heater. Rear pumpkin is a Dana 44, front is a Dana 30 with 5.38 gears and Front and Rear lockers. It sports an 11 inch brake conversion, new clutch and Painless Wiring. T-18 four speed tranny with a granny low. There's an on-board air compresser with an in-line air tank built into the rear bumper. The steel tub has been reinforced and the frame boxed in. Wheelwells were notched for more leg room. This Jeep also has an aluminum radiator as well as a GM tilt steering column and GM power steering. Comes with a set of soft half doors and bikini top (very rare to find these for a Jeep of this age). a "81 Buick LeSbre 4.1 Liter V6. Has a CJ3A windshield frame for more head room (if new top is bought, will need a CJ3a top for proper fit). Appraised and insured for $15,000.00
Nothing needs to be done to his Jeep as she is a very sound and reliable 'lil vehicle. She has just the right amount of "patina" not to have to worry about sctratches, etc. while off-road. However, if you are looking for a show winner, a fresh coat of paint and a new soft top are all it needs to get her on a magazine cover. Sold as is so please ask questions. Cash, Pay-Pal or Bank Check in my name only. Buyer arranges pick-up.
