This Jeep has 120,000 miles, automatic trans w/ a inline 6.
At 119,000 miles engine received new valve lifters, had a valve job done, head machined and new gaskets.
At 110,000 miles spark plugs were changed and a k&n filter was installed in factory air box.
It has D30 front and D35 rear axle with 3.73 gears.
The front axle has a Detroit Trutrac installed.
I have the carpet in but the floor has been bedlined.
It has extended fender flares w/ clear corner turn signal lights.
The top only 2 months old and the windows, when removed, can be stored in the top. The window are larger than normal so it then becomes a bikini top.
It has a 3in suspension lift w/ 1in body.
33x12.50x15 Gdyr Duratracs w/ 15x10 Eagle Alloy wheels. Tires have 6,000 miles on them. Spare is full size and is matching

HERE IS MORE INFO ON THE JEEP

Good looking Jeep. Personally, I wouldn't buy anything with 100K on it. My 04 has 34,000, and no rust, but I wouldn't sell it for $10 grand. Good luck and have fun.

Yeah I think that price is a little too high, for 10k you should get something with absolutely no problems.

The 42rle 4sp OD auto tranny in that Jeep does not like large tires with stock 3.73 gears. In fact, it didn't really like my stock tires when I had them. While you can get by on road with pressing the OD off button everytime you start it, you will not like the power loss. OD will be pretty much useless except going down hill or with a 70mph tail wind. Off road is another problem if you are going anywhere with steep hill climbs and descents. 4lo will not be very low.

A gear swap to 4.88's with those 33" tires will get you back where you need to be.

I would ask for the cost of new gears and install knocked off the price to start with.
