Look around for the most sought after model jeep to modify and you will quickly learn that the LJ is the hottest jeep out there. It now has it’s own cult following and will be even more popular as the good ones get harder to find.

Oh, and the jeep.
Was a wrecked 2004 Wrangler that had frame damage, so I sourced an undamaged frame and installed it under the tub.
The jeep was finished in 2010 it took about 9 months start to finish.
There isn’t another one exactly like it anywhere.
It runs very strong, will go just about anywhere you point it, and will run as fast as you want on or off the road.
The suspension is very soft and handles bumps with ease. On the rocks, it flexes well and climbs like a cat.
The jeep does not like days with 100 degree temps, it has never overheated, but will if it is left idling in the sun, it will immediately cool off once the rev’s are up or going down the road. This has never been a problem for me, but want any prospective buyer to be aware. It also needs to run on high octane fuel 90 or better, if you want the engine to be at it’s most potential, it will run fine on less, but the timing will need to be brought back a little.
I have no idea of the miles on the running gear, but it was mostly a rock crawler, so no where near it’s age. The engine axles, transmission and transfer case were in my old CJ-7 for about 7 or so years. It was never a daily driver at any point, always trailered to and from the trails. It has been in car shows and competition events, always attracts attention.
It is currently titled as a 1984 CJ-7 but will include the dash VIN and title for 2004 Wrangler LJ.
I am not using this jeep to it’s fullest potential, I hate to sell it, but my priorities have changed. Please ask any questions or request specific pics. My description above is pretty accurate, but may have left off a few items. Will edit as they come to me.
Asking $22,500 or best reasonable offer. You can't build this jeep for this price..
Possible to include tandem axle aluminum trailer with additional $$
No trades right now.
Shipping is the buyer’s responsibility, payment must be in full before the jeep leaves my possession.
