TJ "Rubicon" on 35's, Long Arm Suspension, Locked, Loaded and Built!

Up for sale is my 1998 TJ 4.0L (113,xxx miles). Truck does have a pair of 03-06 Rubicon D44 Axles with factory air lockers. 5 speed manual transmission. Montana truck with no rust, very clean and well kept. Has been more than just a mall crawler, she shines up nice, but does have some minor trail wear & tear.

The following is the most accurate description breakdown of the Jeep:

Mechanical Operation/Function: 10/10
This thing performs wonders off road, with a fresh long arm suspension kit, it will out-articulate and out-crawl most other Jeeps. The engine runs extremely strong with plenty of low end torque. Engine doesn’t knock, tick or consume oil, and gets routine oil changes at 3K miles. The axles were gone through this spring to ensure that the air lockers were operational and the internal components were safe and sound. Both lockers work and makes the truck extremely capable off road. Unlike other Jeeps, this thing drives tight with no loose front end parts, “death wobble” or choppy ride. The long arm kit not only provides optimal off road performance, but a better street ride as well.

Exterior Aesthetics: 6.5/10
Moving onto the exterior of the truck. Rust-wise, this thing is spotless, and is exactly what you would expect from a Montana truck. As far as the body is concerned, it is once again rust-free and structurally sound. There are some minor “bumps and bruises” from normal/off-road use, but nothing major. Minor rock chips, a couple dings here and there, and light scratches from branches and leaves are to be expected. While the Jeep may not win an award at your local car show, it cleans up and shines with little to no effort, and is a great dual purpose rig! Truck is equipped with a Genuine Mopar tan soft top that is in excellent shape and has no fading, rips or tears. The bumpers and rock sliders are considered “rock armor” and have been used. Expect some missing paint on the black armor parts and skid plates.

Interior Aesthetics: 8/10
Now onto the interior, grey in color. The dash is in excellent shape, and all the radio/heat/AC knobs and buttons work great. The ARB air locker switches are mounted in the center of the dash and are operable. There are no cracks or missing pieces to the dash. All gauges work as well as the steering wheel controls. The seats are in good shape for being 15 years old. Each front seat does have some cracking/separation in the vinyl right where your butt slides on/off. Aside from the typical “buttrub” on the edges, the seats are in great shape with no other rips, tears or holes. The carpet was removed so dirt/mud wouldn’t sit and hold moisture or nasty smells. The floor boards are in excellent shape as well with no rust. The truck is equipped with a Tuffy full security console and the truck also has an aftermarket Sony head unit with USB and AUX inputs.

Keep in mind, this is $14,704 in parts ONLY! Just imagine what labor would run (I can). It's simply a great wheeling truck that is extremely capable and a fun daily driver. And with 113,xxx miles, the 4.0L is just breaking in. Also, after every single wheeling outing, the tires and wheels were removed, and the underside was pressure washed inside & out (Frame flush included). This truck has never been “ridden hard and put away wet,” I have taken a great amount of pride in it and like my stuff looking its best.

$11,950 OBO


I don't need to sell it, but i've thrown a very fair price out there, and I’m relatively firm at this price. I’m Located in MN, 25 min north of Twin Cities

Thanks
