This is the list of upgrades and maintenance that has been done to it, Please let me know what ya think....

How many miles? Heck, if it was 180,000 I would still buy that in a heartbeat. Everything he did sounds like he did it right. No cut corners and no useless parts.

What's the phone number for that one ? Lol. DO IT !

For a rig at 9k, with all the bells and whistles you have ask why is he selling it?

True, maybe hes hard up or in a pinch. My son picked up an Audi A4 quattro for 3G because the guy needed $$$ fast.

To me, sounds too good to be true.

Ole4Cyli 06-24-2013 02:28 AM

Hell yes.

MarkGLHS 06-24-2013 04:04 AM

I always feel uncomfortable about saying go-for-it w/o any?

NC Bear 06-24-2013 05:06 AM

sounds like a good deal. I sure would not sell my 97 for that.

Neversummer18 06-24-2013 03:38 PM

Haha ya im hoping I will be able tO change the title to bought soon....I guess the guy bought it and was using it as a daily driver/mud machine and bought a car and now has another jeep he's looking at for a good deal with Dana 60's and 44s haha...he got a taste of jeep n wants to just go ham and apparently he has found that one for a deal and is tryin to sell this one to buy the other

Looks good. Those fenders could use a repaintin. The only remote issue I see. It's pretty common.
