This is what I picked up. This is the ebay listing from when the guy bought the jeep in 12/07. He has since rebuilt the transmission, did all new brake lines and cables, and did some other stuff. I am going to fix the rot when I get the jeep. Minor and he has the metal. Its only going to cost me 300 bucks to fix it and paint the hood, which has some peeling. The rot is right under the driver door. The rest of the metal is good. The Jeep started right up and it has a current inspection sticker. The guy was driving it up until about November, when he bought a newer wrangler. Frame is good too. The only blemish on the body is the rot.









The jeep does not come with the plow. This is how it looks. Has about 84k on it now.








This is my first post. So what do you guys think? I paid 1500 for it.

The rear of the frame looked good, along with the shackles. Just some surface rust, but it is minimal.

The plow isn't on the jeep. The seller kept it. I didn't want it anyway so no big deal. He does have half doors I am taking. They are blue so they also need some paint. My friend sold me some goodyear wrangler AT/S(P) in 31x10.5. They have 1500 miles on them and I am getting them cheap. Probably 200 bucks. I thought that was a good price.

Nice looking forum you guys have. I look forward to checking out all the Jeeps you guys have.

Hey buddy welcome to the Jeep side. I am the moderator on BoRn and saw your post on Joes thread about selling his Jeep. Have fun with it. Jeeps are as bad a bikes for being an addiction.

Thanks man and nice avatar pic. Looks like turn 6. I did a few penguin schools up in NH. Fun times. I just hope the Jeep is as good as it looked when I checked it out. Its my first Jeep, and I am excited, but I am praying I am not about to open a massive can of worms, hahaha.

Thanks man. I am fired up to pick it up. The owner's father died and he needed it gone. I guess thats why he let it go for that price. He paid much more for it, and put some money in to it, so I think I did pretty well price wise.

It looks like you made a really good deal. I'm sure you'll find numerous other "projects" in addition to the rot, but hopefully all the hard/expensive stuff is done -- and you can work on those things while you still use and enjoy it.

Congrats on joining the site and on the new jeep, pretty sharp looking. I would hold on to that snow plow may need it next winter to shovel driveways lol.

The owner is keeping it so I don't even have the option, haha. It definitely would have come in handy in New England too, but it is what it is. Looks like I will be picking the Jeep up next week instead of this weekend because the owner was unable to take the plow off due to lack of time. No big deal, but I would like to get working on that rot.

Thanks. The rot does not appear to be too bad, and only in one spot, but it goes right to the embossed Jeep logo. Is there any place I can get a replacement Jeep logo to weld in? I was looking at some websites but i haven't found anything. The steel replacement part going on does not have the logo on it.

I hope this Jeep is as nice as my buddy, who has been wrenching on Jeeps for 30 years, thinks it is. If it is, its a home run. If not, well, things could get interesting, and by interesting I mean EXPENSIVE, haha.
