Although great solid machine, I like the plush ride. And its a 5 speed which I am all about. Below is some pictures. Of course has some dings here adn there I know I got it from a kid and he built it since 2003 so I got out of him. He is still in touch with me and I know its was beating however is solid inside out. Has 111K miles on it. Straight 6 5 speed. Bedlined inside and all muddy of course which is why I like it. Has hard top and hard doors and bikini top which is all I wanted. I will be putting my Duratrac wranglers on it I am not a fan of the TSL thornbirds. Was told it has a 6.5 lift in it. I see adjustable spacers in front. Tom Woods driveshafts front and rear. SYE in back of course. No t-case drop. Sits about as high as my YJ with SOA lift which was like 5.5" lift. Eitherway just curious brand of stuff and what you can identify. Rear axle is a Dynatrac with LSD i believe. Has AGR steering box. All tierodds are huge and shafts are too. Highs teering kit I was told but doesn't look it to me. Curious about picture with SYE and the parts attaching shaft. It does have a small leak out of the shaft but the inside I think where the nut goes onto output shaft. I'll have to see if he needs to replace star washer that goes in there. Otherwise curious y'alls input and what parts are what for sway bars and crap like that. I know its quick crap pics with iphone but let me know.
Also curious what y'all think a good price is for all thats there. No major rust or close to rot on frame. Bushings on body are mint. Common trail dings on body work, big pumpers! love those. Clutch felt perfect and gears work. I couldn't go for a long test ride at all, i just checked clutch cause rear spider gears are broke. Frotn wheel pulled it fine. I didn't go more than length to get on trailer. I got with it the superduty rear tire carrier that swings out with tailgate as well.
You've got some expensive parts under there! Good idea to ditch the Thornbirds, I hear they suck off road. The front sway bar is a Currie set up ($300) and it works like the Tera flex Anti-rock kit,no need to disconnect off-road, the rear is an aftermarket maybe from Addco? The front trac bar is a JKS adjustable ($216),cant see the rear, the front ACOS spacers are JKS ($235) they are a minimum of 1 1/4" of lift and adjustable from there. The t-case looks to me like a fixed flange like the 241 the Rubicons have. Check the tag on the back of the case, if it is s 241 it will have a 4.1:1 lo.
It looks like it's a 97 or early 98, I would only guess that depending on your area, that TJ would sell for around $6500??? After all, it does need new gears...So that is merely a guess.
I think you have a nice platform to work from, it's always nice to buy something that already has some good parts on it. Good luck with it!
