Damn , that thing looks like it'd climb a wall to chew your mother's leg off then leap back down and demand you give her something more ....looks like a lot of bloodied knuckles and time spent lying beneath it , if ya ask me . The OP for 17 grand just seems a stretch when you can get a 2door 2007 or 2008 JK with mild mileage and build , but it's all a personal pref.....

thanks..yeah, we spent many,many hours putting this one together and a hell of a lot of money in parts.If I sell it for 15 I won't clear a dollar an hour for the time spent..But,my wife and I love building them so it's all good..And,until it does sell,I get to enjoy driving it nearly every day.It performs like a 68 camaro SS on the street..

Agreed. That bad boy is worth every cent of 15k and then some. It looks new. You say it runs like its new. And it's kind of a unique one-of-a-kind piece of art. What new car can you buy today for 15 grand? A Chevy Spark lol? It's worth 15k because that's what I'm willing to pay for it and I have the money. That's how markets are determined. Anyone think they own a CJ that holds a candle to that beauty at any price? Until I see pics that rig stands alone as 'best in show'IMO

thanks Brother.I know you have the money.I'm just waiting on you to get off of it.Until then I will keep the battery charged,fresh gas in it,the cobwebs out of the carb and the exhaust blown out..It's a tough job but someone has to do it..
