Selling this jeep because my family is growing & I need the space. This jeep has been a true labor of love. I hope that comes through from my build specs. I don't think you can buy one of these and built it out this way for $15,000. Many many sensible upgrades. No CELs. Minor imperfections in the paint here and there appropriate for the age. Only known issues are listed at the bottom & are easily solved. Runs reliably & smoothly. No knocks or funny sounds of any sort. Below is a list of my build.

I can take out some of the upgrades and put back OEM to lower price for the right buyer.
Sold the hard top and the B&M shifter. Price drop on the LJ including soft top and OEM shifter

What upgrades would you remove and put back to OEM and the price would be?

I took out the b&m shifter and sold the hard top. Current price is 10,500.

Can try and go further but selling the wheels and seats off with having to buy cheapy OEM ones doesn’t pay much.
