Don't but it just because of the bumpers and wheels. The ebay listing expired.

The listing is stil there.

The jeep itself looks nice. Tires and rims are cool. The rims are a little bigger than my preferance but they still look ok.
The bumpers...well since you asked for opinions.....They are horrible. The friggin things look wider than the jeep itself. It looks like someone took fullsize truck bumpers from the 80's and made them fit on the wrangler. If I bought that jeep I would honestly rather take the bumpers off and drive the jeep with no bumpers.
Sorry, not trying to be a jerk.

Wow those bumpers look like something out of a Mad Max movie. Unless they are aluminum, they got to be real heavy. The front one looks like it has a built in platform to stand on.

It says it has a towing package, but I would not want to tow anything significant with that receiver built into the rear bumper.

I think there are definite better deals out there if you look.

60's would be dana 60's those are the 1 ton axle's that are under it, They make any stock wrangler axle look like a tooth pick. They are also big and heavy and used in big jeeps. How much money do you have to spend? I would look for a used 2003/04 rubicon. It will give you want you want in a nice package.

I was thinking 10-15k but if I fall in love with one I’ll drop more. I almost got a new orange 2010 JK today before I just grabbed myself and walked away

60's are the axles under the Jeep. They are way too oversized for any Jeep wrangler and look rediculous. Tell you what, you buy this Jeep and I'll do you the favor of offering up my Dana 44 axles with ARB lockers for an even swap for those 60's just because you seem like a nice guy.
