FREE golden eagle tj for 5 years

hey all!!!! ok so my parents have these friends who have a son in his late 30s. He got arrested 3 times for dunk driving here in NJ and he lost his license for 10 years. So they asked me if i would mind driving the jeep for the next few years instead of it sitting in storage costing them more $. it got dropped off to me today. pics to follow all i know is its a 2006 colden eagle sitting on 33s with 4-5 inches of lift.
My question is what options came with the golden eagle? Its in good shape its been off roaded but nothing crazy. looking foward to enjoying it.
now do i sell my 92 with cj from clip or do i park mine for a few years????

Man that's nice! Been a few years since I've seen one. I agree with Rubicon06Va...drive it a while then ask if you can buy it. Might get a good deal.

As for the Golden Eagle edition, here is what I found:
The main thing is the DANA 44 rear end. Golden Eagle package: a heavy-duty Dana 44 rear axle, 30-inch off-road tires, two-tone seats with Golden Eagle embroidery, an upgraded seven-speaker audio system, a silver center-stack bezel, gas-charged shocks, 15-inch gold-aluminum wheels, and Golden Eagle decals on the exterior, a standard 6-speed manual transmission or optional 4-speed automatic

Personally, and friends of the family or not, I wouldn't take on that responsibility. If anything happens to that Jeep while you have possession of it, like an engine, transmission, etc. type of problem, they'd blame you. Heck even just normal wear & tear at the end of that 5 years might be considered by them to be excessive. Trail damage, dents from hit & run drivers, vandalism, or if you got into an accident... there are a lot of potential hazzards that could cause your family friends to no longer be family friends if something very clear about such potential problems isn't put in writing before you take possession of it.

Or if you damage it while on the trail (should you choose to take it there) they could possibly come after you for damage. If you want to drive I'd get something in writing saying any normal wear and tear is something that would have been done anyways. At least something to that extent, because how well do you know these friends of your parents and their son? If you don't know them that well...then you could get into legal trouble with the parents and or the son as well .

I hate to agree with the above posts...but yeah...and I know in Indiana it could get a little "screwy" if there was an accident and who is responsible who repairs what how is it titled insured.......might be ahead to see about "buying" it now with the plan to sell it back to them when there son can drive again for a set price....would than be careful of how attached you get to it 'cause you might loose it.....but IMO good possibility you COULD end up with it fairly cheaply.

Yea no doubt you'd have to have every detail because if not it could get ugly. But I imagine he knows them pretty well to have a jeep for 5 years lol.

Good luck with it and enjoy it

I would be too afraid to drive it much. Even if something happened that was not my fault, I'd feel bad about it. Maybe drive just enough to keep stuff running and burn off condensation in the motor and recharge the battery as a favor to them but not daily driving.

Although a nice rig, I would have to pass also. Just too much liability.

I don't even like to drive any of my family's vehicles across town. I wouldn't touch that.
I might see if they'd sell it cheap though.

Liability issues aside, advise them to sell it (make an offer if you're interested). Who holds on to a run of the mill vehicle for 5-10 years without any prospect of the owner legally driving it? We aren't looking at a Shelby Cobra here.

I'd offer to buy it, but otherwise it'd be in moth balls. I wouldn't just drive it....to much liability
