Couple quick questions!
 
I'm currently in Alaska but there's nothing around that I like, so I've been searching around where I used to live and stumbled upon this.

97' Lifted Jeep Wrangler *Perfect TJ*

The things that worry me is the ebrake not working and the front away bar being disconnected. I'm more worried on the sway bar, is this expensive to fix? Or could I drive it the way it is (as the current owner does).

Also does this seem like a fair price for this TJ?

Thanks guys.

I'm a newbie but seems a little high to me.

if you can get it for 8500 it be good, theres a lot on there he hasnt listed that ive seen on there.. seats for one.. sway bars easy fix and ebrake.. i say just needs adjusted..

Yea that's a pretty good deal. He has a lot of upgrades on there plus it's a rubicon. I wouldn't pay more that 9k though. Make that your max. Aim for 8.5 like he said.

thedaringmove 02-16-2013 08:29 PM

Don't forget to take off the stickers and make it yours!

I dont think its a rubicon. He said its a sahara edition... unless they made 97 Jeep rubicon sahara editions?

Take off the Rubicon stickers, the pocket flares, and the silly"if you can read this, then roll me over" that every stock 4 door soccer mom Jeep around me has on the window, and then ya got something there

They didn't make Rubicons in 97.

If he just put the rubicon sticker on I'd question whether he has dana 44 axels.

Hopefully that's an old picture and we didnt catch a jeep owner lying...

How can I tell if it has Dana 44 axels? With all the fixes that need to be done and you guys saying around 8.5k to 9k, ill try and offer 8 grand to offset the price of having to ship it up here and fixing the small things. I don't know if it means anything but I'm 99% sure I saw this ad a few months ago but for around 14k.

D44 has a metal drain plug

Sounds like he did the axle work,it's been re geared, and has an arb locker (1000.00 just to buy)

Definitely make it look your way

If you still know someone in that area since you used to live around there I would have them go check it out and maybe make the deal for you. There's a lot of scammers on Craigslist. Not all of them but you can't be to carefully when your going to send someone that kind of money.

BigBoots 02-16-2013 09:21 PM

I would have a friend get it checked out by a mechanic and do all the dealing for me. Also he sent me a picture of underneath ill try to post on here with my phone.

BigBoots 02-16-2013 09:32 PM

Here's a picture of underneath.

Why do people put fake rubicon stickers on? Someone who's not into jeeps wouldn't know what it means and someone who is into jeeps would know its not really a rubicon
