Tub is 8 years old, F134 engine, 3 speed, hi/lo transfer case, manual locking hubs, newer radiator, new rear main seal, new pinion seal and diff cover gaskets. D24 front, d44 rear, t90, new master cylinder, brakes, tires, steel and rubber lines. What's a fair offer?

Theres overspray all over the place, seams coming apart on the seats, etc. Pics cant tell us how well the drivetrain sounds/feels, so only you know that. I might be wrong, since I'm not currant on the early CJ's value, but I wouldn't think much more than $4k. The lack of care/quality control on the paint work alone make me question the care and quality control that went into the rest of the "restoration". Not trying to knock on it or you, just my observation of the pics provided.

Thanks for the information. Is there anything in particular I should keep an eye/ear out for with the F134 and T90?

Wrong dash, missing glove box cover
Has a replacement tub, wonder how the frame looks if the original tub rotted away
I can tell it's been sitting for awhile
Diamond plate bumper and frame rail cover is a big turnoff IMO
F-134 is a good engine, but don't plan on driving anywhere close to fast
The T90 has a history of popping out of second gear while letting off the accelerator at higher RPMs
Good title, everything works as it should $1800-$2800

Good information. What year is the dash from?

I would take it out and drive it. Make sure everything works stops good. If it drives like crap walk away.
