Mystery jeep

So I was driving down federal and saw a jeep on the side of the road. Stopped to see if I could help somehow and no one was there or around or anything so I thought I'd post it up and see if it was anyone's or if if anybody needed a hand. It was a black tj w/ hard top metal cloak high line front fenders old man emu 4 or 5 inch lift drop down tail gate and a sticker on the back window.

No idea, but if it's still there I might run up and get it for a parts vehicle...

Around here it takes a while. Or I seem to think so. The cops have to put a warning on the car which usually takes like 48hrs then they have to wait another 24 before they can tow it. So hopefully it worked out

Shit all I want to do is transplant a CJ5 front end on my TJ. There's so little of the TJ left that I could legitimately call it a CJ...

Ha!

And thanks for the link Mike.... I think i'm going to stick yj or go cj.... I'm not a fan of the mix and matched hoods and to do the tj front end right exceeds my abilities.

I'd go cj, just cuz I like them. I just don't know how much of a headache sticking a cj front on a tj would be. On a yj I guess it's pretty straightforward.
