Wow it's got a lot of mods.. Who put them on? How long have they been on there? How Much $$? Do they have reciepts? It sounds like it is set up nicely. What size motor does it have? Tranny? How does it drive? Make sure everything works. If there is not a lot of damage from previous user then it may be a good deal.

Well, it's a 2004, with standard 4.0L engine and tranny.

I haven't driven yet. Just wondering how this list of mods looks to you experieced off-roaders.

sounds pretty darn good...sounds like he got everything including the sye and new driveshaft...as long as everything is working and it is in good condition and it drives good then it seems like a very good deal...depending on price though

There's quite a bit of love that's been given to that jeep. You'd definitely have a turn key 4wheeler to play with. Sounds like all avenues have been addressed and that is very stoutly built jeep (of course just by seeing what's on it, and not seeing it myself). What are they asking for that?

Sounds decent from what you have written: What about the other control arms are they Tera flex or RE or something else?
