6 cylinder 258. Busted odometer. At least 150,000 on motor. Still runs good. Some lifter noise when it warms up. Chrysler 999 Automatic transmission. Dana 300 transfer case that’s getting tired. Still works but makes some noise. Engine, tranny and transfer case are original-never been touched. Used to be column shift now its B&M floor shifter. Power steering.
Total rebuild about 8 years ago except for motor and tranny.
All new 8 years ago.
Matkins extreme level one frame.
Metal body from Taiwan.
New windshield frame.
New seats and belts
Urethane body mounts
3 inch lift springs
Genuine Gear lockers front and back so all 4 wheels turn even if 3 are in the air. If you’re not familiar
with them just google them. They ratchet when turning.
One piece rear axles. Not splined.
23 gallon trail quest (I think) fuel tank. Mil spec.
I have the original half top. I could make it work if I needed to.
Also have back seat if the chipmunks haven’t moved in. Was brand new. I’ll check the box.
I have the doors too. Both work.
33 x 12.5 pro comp mud terrains on 12 inch rusted chrome rims. Still solid just not pretty. Plus spare. All with 95 percent tread.
Rims are only 2 inch off-set so they clear the frame when turning. Fender flares were needed because it has almost a one foot wider wheelbase than stock.
Also almost a foot taller than stock because of the Matkins frame, the springs and the tires.
The extra foot of width makes it legal.
Locking front hubs.
Front disc, rear drum brakes. Needs master cylinder installed. I have it.
Heavy duty steering box mount to handle the big tires. Original steering box.
Rattle can black (rustoleum)
Was never a garage Queen. I rebuilt it so I could use it. Comes with Meyers power angle plow that I modified to compensate for the lift.
Now it needs help. I don’t have time to work on it anymore. Body is starting to rust and it needs help in the usual places. Driver floor is rusted through in one spot because of road salt. Passenger side is solid. Most of the body is solid and will fix up easily.
Bed separator is not currently installed but I have it. It just bolts in.
Wiring is a mess but it all works. Hasn’t been registered since 2013. Needs body work, mechanical attention and TLC. Needs someone who knows jeeps. But it’s well worth the effort.
Not ready to drive but could be with a little effort. I’m selling it as is.
