Background:

I purchased this Jeep in January of this year as a winter project to pass the time and keep my mind and body occupied during the doldrums of winter and Covid lock downs. During the last 8 months, the Jeep has gone through significant maintenance, clean-up and detailing.

The condition of the frame, body and undercarriage from a rust/rot standpoint is outstanding. Prior to me, The Jeep spent its life in Georgia. For the next guy or gal, this is a really solid base to work from with a lot of general maintenance completed and a fresh interior.

It's is currently on a new set of 33’s with custom steel wheels. It came with a lift of unknown make estimated to be around 4”.

General condition is overall good but not perfect. There are nicks and dings, the paint has rock chips (crappy touch ups) and checking in some areas but there is no body filler or major damage. The engine runs smooth, it starts stops drives and shifts.

What it needs: While allot of things are done it could still use a little more tlc. New ball joints/steering/suspension maintenance, a rear main seal (valve cover is freshly done) and an AC re-charge are in order.

I spent approximately 2 years lurking here on this forum learning planning and researching before I pulled the trigger on this one. Almost all the maintenance items have been based on the outstanding threads, tutorials and recommendations found here on the forum.

The reason I’m selling. After allot of consideration, I have decided to go after a new JL 2-door with a manual transmission.

Note: The spare tire trash bag (and camping gear shown) does not go with the sale. All the things listed in the details section go with. The original factory front and rear seats are available and can be included if you would like them.

Interior and undercarriage pictures to follow. Happy to provide further details and or pictures.


Thanks,
Chris

Nice-looking jeep. Looks like you didn't skimp on what you did do to it.
Question: Do the seats have covers on them or, are they out of a newer model Jeep? I didn't see where you noted that but could have missed it. Thanks, and good luck.

Thanks! The front seats and mounts are full new replacements from Corbeau. They are a general purpose design, not Jeep specific but have a nice clean OEM type appearance and physically fit in the TJ space well. I have the original seats that go with if someone wants them.
