From what I can tell in the picture the body looks in nice shape. Good find.

It has a few issues but it was worth probably double what I paid for it , the owner was moving to Alabama ASAP for family illness .
Problems are
Hood is dented from flying up while driving .
Left rear has a small dent like they backed into something
No rear seat .
I think it needs a clock spring in the steering column as the windshield wipers don't work .

I think the clockspring is an open recall

I'm sure that's a decent engine, but are 90 day warranties typical for replacement engines?

I doubt that he would drop a $9K motor in that Jeep. He probably only paid a couple Grand for this rig. tongue

That cummins is a emissions legal package, but still a pricey item.

That jeep must have been a base stripper w/o power steering. Did it even have a back seat?
