Looks like a Dana 30 front differential, by the cover and shape.

From what I can see...and assuming no rust since in NM I would offer $6500...don't get me wrong the $7700 is probably a pretty fair price....but IMO the PO doesn't know a lot about Jeeps based IMO on the way the add reads....a lot of things listed as Mods and upgrades are generally considered "snake oil" by a lot of people. Also the way I read it, it does not have a complete (weather proof) top, that is between $350 and $2100 depending on what you get. $350 being used or cheap aftermarket (which May leak) and $2100 being new HT...just bargaining advice.....Good Luck!!

I dunno but I think I'd pass on that particular TJ. He has so many questionable mods on it that there's no telling its true condition & quality. ESPECIALLY that mindless dangerous side gasoline tank mount that leads me to believe its current owner is at least close to being an idiot.

I agree completely. I'm not sure what would possess someone to put gas cans on the side like that! 7700 sounds like alot of money to me. If your going to spend it then the best thing to do is find a stock jeep. Or else one that just has a few mods done.
