This jeep is a head turner and a lot of fun to drive.

Like any vehicle driven regularly there are a few dings and things that can be replaced, I will list everything you may be concerned about below and I will be critical

First, the speedometer and fuel gauge don't currently work, I do have a replacement unit that should work by replacing and mixing current parts.

Steel doors and full soft top have never been installed, although I have all the hardware and frame, it will need put together. I also have a family style roll bar from a YJ that needs painted and a full fiberglass hard top with a sun roof and lift gate that needs a little repair and paint. I will throw these in at the right price. 

A small crack is about to form in the drivers seat and a Levi's button is missing. There are a few chips in the paint from interstate driving and a nice sized scratch in the drivers side rocker panel (photo included). Emergency brake has never been hooked up and I've not taken the time to clean up the wiring under the hood so one may want to organize that.

Shocks are older and would make a nicer ride if replaced: myself nor my wife mind the ride so it's not terrible. There is no air conditioning and I have never ran the heater, heater coil was bypassed many years ago.

Since the last paint job, I have replaced the following.

Professionally Rebuilt Edlebrock 4-barrel carburetor. All lighting and light wiring, Battery,solenoid, alternator and starter are all new along with some electrical wiring. Breather/air intake and valve covers, radiator reservoir are new along with the master cylinder. Drum brakes work great and have been serviced. Windshield is new along with a mirror and an interior matching console is included.

This is a nice jeep that you can ride from 10mph to 85mph with no worries. I had a value placed on it from a local vintage dealer and he valued it at $10k as you see photographed, NADA books it at an average value of $8,500 with a 304 or larger motor so you will not be disappointed in what you get with this purchase.

Text or call with questions, I have a short video of me starting, revving and walking around the jeep as it idles I can send you along with any additional picture requests. 304-545-0455

NHTSA still mulling crash tests for recalled Jeeps

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 19:00:00 EST

Well, no one should ever accuse the government of not giving things plenty of thought. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is still debating whether it will retest any of the 1.56 million 1992 to 1998 Grand Cherokees and 2002 to 2007 Libertys that were part of a recall regarding fires after rear-end collisions. And yes, this debate has been going on for over a month. In other news...
The recall dustup started in early June, when Chrysler took the unusual position of refusing a recall request from NHTSA regarding placement of the fuel tank on the effected vehicles. NHTSA said a collision could cause a fire, a position Chrysler took issue with. Extensive negotiations ensued, with Chrysler agreeing to fit certain Jeeps with trailer hitches, which it said would provide some protection to fuel tanks mounted behind the rear axle in the event of a collision.
Part of the issue rests with the amount of data that needs to be processed, according to The Detroit News. NHTSA administrator David Strickland said during a Washington Auto Press Association meeting, "There's a lot of data and Chrysler is being very cooperative in giving us more data." Until that information has been sorted, it looks like re-testing will still be up for debate.

Jeep gunning to build 250,000 Cherokees a year

Thu, 21 Mar 2013 11:28:00 EST

Contrary to what a certain politician may have said last year about Jeep moving to China, the automaker is in fact doing the opposite, with plans to greatly increase the production capacity at its Toledo North Assembly plant in Ohio. The Detroit Free Press is reporting that there are big plans for the 2014 Jeep Cherokee and Toledo North, as a local union president has informed the newspaper that Chrysler is planning to produce around 250,000 examples of the new midsize utility per year.
To put this number into context, 250,000 units is more than what Jeep Liberty sales totaled here over the last three years combined. Even taking into consideration that the 250,000 units will be distributed beyond US borders, that's an ambitious volume figure full-stop - and that's without taking into consideration the new Cherokee's love/hate design. In its favor, though, Jeep is making remarkable inroads globally as of late, and the Cherokee's size could work well in emerging markets. To get that kind of output from Toledo's Cherokee assembly line, Chrysler will reportedly hire 1,105 new workers - that's in addition to the 200 workers already being hired to build the popular Jeep Wrangler, which is itself expected to top 220,000 units this year.

Radical 2016 Jeep Wrangler suggested by job listings?

Fri, 31 May 2013 19:00:00 EST

With most inside the industry expecting the next-generation Jeep Wrangler to arrive for the 2016 model year, it makes sense that the automaker would be looking for some choice candidates to to fill program openings as the off-roader goes through its development. A recent ad on suggests to some that the lightweight Wrangler Stitch Concept, revealed just two months ago and shown above, provides some clues about the off-road icon's next iteration.
According to Automotive News, the job descriptions - which don't name the model specifically - hint that the next-generation Wrangler will benefit from a serious diet. The ads appear to seek those familiar with advanced high-strength steels, hinting that lightweight aluminum body panels may appear on the 4x4. In addition, there are suggestions that Jeep may fit the Wrangler replacement with air suspension, as seen on the Ram and Grand Cherokee, to retain ample off-road clearance yet lower that chassis to improve aerodynamics at highway speeds. The job postings reportedly also lend credence to the idea of a diesel Wrangler.
It seems every bit of the next-generation Wrangler is up for review, as it will be the first time this iconic model is redesigned under Fiat ownership. Questions remain whether or not the Jeep will retain its clip-down hood, easy-to-remove door pins and folding front windshield - loyalists expect them, but fuel economy and safety standards may crimp their cases for survival.
