Spotted this tj.

Saw this tj and had to get a pic. Not sure what look this guy is going for but the tires are awfully tiny

That side step isn't too pretty either, I'm guessing there the smallest stock wheels with regular car highway tires. Eesh that thing needs some TLC.

My old house used to see a guy with about a 4" + lift driving around with tires like that! Every time he would drive buy I would throw-up in my mouth a little.

Maybe... maybe not. If it were on blocks in a yard some where there actually might be a chance at a young kid buying his first jeep cheap and the joy that we all know comes from building a jeep. Whi ever owns this doesnt know it has 4wd. Itll b clean when it does go forsale

Agreed. Doesn't appear that the owner actually appreciates his jeep, which is just wrong. Love your jeep always!

There are many factors her you and the other people here don't know. Dont be quick to judge .

And btw he/she might say the same about you

Probably have it low so a disabled person can get in it. Just a guess.

Agree with Gabriel on the side steps. Um something happened to them. What does the driver's side look like? The side steps were the first thing I noticed.

I was going to put a disclaimer at the end saying I could be wrong but I figured that went without saying. Just saying that it APPEARS to be somewhat of a neglected jeep.

Drivers side looked pretty much like the passenger side. Rusted nerf bar. I don't think they'd serve a real purpose being rusted like that. But you can see the grille and driver side fender is a little rough. I think my jeep shed a tear when I took the pic.

Yeah, I'm not sure about the dinner price at 8.99 though, seems like take out would be a better deal at that point. I guess I will have to see if the op puts up anything on the American food selection they offer before I commit.

Lol this was in a town about 20 miles from my town. I've never been to the buffet but I've heard bad things about the place lol. Could be risky.
