Honestly at this point rust isn't my concern, it's passing mvi. If I can't do that, then it becomes a nice garage ornament. I've got someone interested coming over today, so we'll see.

True. You never know why it really had a paint job. If you really like it. Have a professional look it over

3. Stock Axles and Gears

4. 350/350 conversion - I was excited about this one, I've always been a car guy...I've owned a couple mustangs. Love the v8 power and sound. But didn't realize that Jeeps weren't built for this kind of power and you have to pay close attention to the drivetrain or some real damage can be done. Then the most important part, I was so nieve that I just assumed it would pass Missouri Inspection. Yeah no, not even close...

Then the most important part, I was so nieve that I just assumed it would pass Missouri Inspection. Yeah no, not even close...

5. The body is actually the best part...Straight and looks pretty good.

I realize that most of these items can be fixed...It's possible the frame isn't as bad as I'm thinking it is. I bought the Jeep, because my Mustang was pretty much finished and "thought" I wanted a "project"...I still do, but this is much more than I intended for.

Again...If I would have just been smart enough spend some time on this site and know what to look for, then I probably wouldn't have gotten taken as bad as I did...I don't blame the PO, he answered all my questions...He just didn't "give up" any information...he knew was a noob.

Anyway...Longer explanation than I'm sure you care to hear...I'm not done with Jeeps, I just want one that can pass MVI.

What the hell is wrong with it that is so horrible?

Babasnoopy I got my 90 2.5 with 48,000 original miles from an 85 year old Jeep nut. It sat in a huge heated garage for years. $3,000. I replaced brakes, clutch, master/slave, belts, fluids, wires, plugs, and basically all the sensors. It runs well now. I also lifted it 2", and put 31" Duratracs on. I love this Jeep.

Wasn't trying to be shady. I just wanted an honest opinion about what people thought. I know personally if someone asks what people think, I personally don't want to bash them for asking too much or tell them it's a piece of crap for the price. By me posting it like that I was hoping to get brutal honesty which is what I was looking for. I wasn't trying to be sneaky or anything. The Jeep is listed in the for sale section and it's under my name so nothing shady about it. DJ

Either way, $3500-$4000 works for me as I will more than double my investment. DJ
