Got home about 30 minutes ago. The weather today was less than ideal. I left here at 6:40 this morning, and just got back home, unloaded the Rubicon and returned the trailer and then was back home again at 8:08.
So going to try to answer everyones questions:
Are you gonna part out what you don’t use/need? I could use a center console lid haha
I'll check but I don't think it's in there honestly. I didn't see a center console at all.
Drop the hard top off in Charlottesville when you get back to Va.
I live near Martinsville so not going THAT far into VA . . . for now
Thats either going to be the best $3500 purchase you’ve ever made, or the worst… 😂
Agreed! I'm planning on using the axles, and transfer case for my build, and looking at parting out the rest, but I'm not sure how much of it I will be using right now.
Transfer case, rear axle and hard top and your money ahead
Probably but I'm using the first two
Yeah, I think if you don’t need the hard top and doors, you sell them and you’ve made your money back.
Those doors look pristine.
Heck, the locker pumps if they’re in good shape will sell quickly too, ha.
That was my thoughts as well, the doors are in excellent shape and the top is just in good of a shape as well. Also surprisingly the tub is in fantastic shape, just the front clip is screwed up. I'm probably going to be using the pumps on my setup as well so I'll be holding onto them.
Factory RHD or other? Windshield wipers indicate LHD. Interesting ...
Sorry my current TJ is a Right Hand Drive Impact Orange that I have been diesel swapping going on 4 years now. Going to use the Rubicon parts on my build.
Drop the factory airbox off here in Arizona as you're coming through. Thanks!
I'll have to see if it's still in one piece first
Minor damage, should be able to buff it out and flip it. Wheels match the trailer.
Yeah I think a bit of spit shine and it's good to hit the trails!
Yeah, “my dad’s a TV repairman, he’s got an awesome set of tools, we can fix it.”
Just need a bigger hammer!
Can you take a small detour and swing by SoCal I'm in need of a part or two
That's a little bit more than a small detour . . . .
Score- I might would put the front clip off the RHD on the Rubi, if the frames good. In other word that thing may can be saved- watch for the front shaft being drove into the transfer case.
Nah, I like my Right Hand Drive TJ too much. Also the frame was bent up with the bumper and kinked slightly in the side. I did check the transfer case before I loaded it and it appears to be in perfect shape as well thankfully. That was the piece I was after the most.
It’s a very good bet that the frame is toast - definitely still a great score. Good call on checking the transfer case.
Yeah the frame is toast, which sucks as this very well maintained. there is ZERO rust anywhere on this TJ, kind of shame honestly. The front axle looks good as well, going to pull the axle when I get a chance and give it a hard check over to make sure it's usable, but so far it seems like it's fine. Most of the damage happened above the from bumper and twisted everything above the top of the frame which I consider fortunate for what I'm hoping to do with the parts.
