Jeep was built by a professional in the off-road vehicle business for over 30 years and this was his personal Jeep. He bought it at a government vehicle auction (Los Angeles International Airport) VIN 3V0TA24XXEM000351 with very low miles to use as the foundation for a ground-up rebuild. It has about 1,500 miles since build. It starts, runs and drives with no issues. The engine, axles, transfer case and transmission do not leak. Adult owned, built and driven. Always garaged. It has had only very light street and off-roadtrail use.

There is no A/C in this Jeep and it did not have A/C from the factory although one could be added. There are no smog control devices on this vehicle so it will not pass in areas where smog control devices are required. All of the dash controls work (heater, defroster, fan, outside air, headlights, high-low beams, blinkers, windshield wipers), and all of the Auto-meter gauges work. The speedometer is believed to be accurate. The High-Lift jack and spare tire are mounted using the same lug nuts as the wheels on the Jeep. Comes with extra lug nuts and Tuner lug nut tool.
  • Disclosures: If I were to keep this Jeep, I would replace the springs for a softer ride and because the driver side rear spring has sagged slightly. The brakes work fine. However, the rear brakes, when cold, are loud when applied in reverse. I have discussed this issue with the disc brake manufacturer (Stainless Steel Brakes) and they informed me that installing organic brake pads should resolve the issue. The door locks do not match the ignition lock (all CJ's were like that), and the door keys were lost. Jeep comes with new factory door locks and key that are not installed. The Rally fiberglass half door tops have a gap between the Jeep top and the front of of the door tops.
