THE ORIGINAL RENEGADE DECALS ARE STILL NICE TOO. THE BODY IS NEAR PERFECT. THERE ARE VERY FEW DINGS AND VERY LITTLE RUST TO BE FOUND ANYWHERE. THE FRAME, BODY MOUNTS, FLOORBOARDS, ROCKERS, ETC. ARE ALL ROCK SOLID WITH NO RUST. WHEN YOU CRAWL UNDERNEATH THIS JEEP IT IS VERY OBVIOUS THAT IT HAS NEVER BEEN EXPOSED TO ROAD SALT, ETC. IT IS ALSO QUITE OBVIOUS THAT IT HAS NEVER BEEN IN THE MUD. IT IS SUPER, SUPER SOLID AND SUPER CLEAN UNDERNEATH. THE ONLY RUST TO BE FOUND ON THE JEEP IS UNDER THE FRONT WINDSHIELD ON THE WINDSHIELD FRAME. IT IS MINOR AND COULD EASILY BE REPAIRED IF DESIRED. IT DOES NOT REALLY AFFECT THE OVERALL SHARP APPEARANCE OF THIS CJ AND IS QUITE NORMAL FOR THESE 30 YEAR OLD JEEPS SO I HAVE DECIDED TO LEAVE IT ALONE. IT REALLY IS AN AMAZINGLY ORIGINAL AND CLEAN CJ. IT EVEN STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL SELLING DEALERS STICKER ON THE LEFT REAR OF THE JEEP! INSIDE YOU WILL FIND THE INTERIOR TO BE 90% ORIGINAL. THE DASH IS BEAUTIFUL AND THE ORIGINAL SPORT STEERING WHEEL IS STILL PRESENT AND LOOKS NICE. THE ORIGINAL PAINT IS STILL ON THE FLOORBOARDS FRONT AND REAR (NO RHINO LINING HERE) AND THEY LOOK CLEAN. THE ORIGINAL TAN DENIM SEATS ARE ALL THERE BUT THEY ARE SHOWING THEIR AGE. THE BESTOP SOFT TOP IS IN VERY NICE CONDITION AND THE PADDED ROLL BAR COVER WAS ADDED SEVERAL YEARS AGO BUT LOOKS NEW. OVERALL, IT REALLY IS CLEAN INSIDE. THE SPEEDOMETER STILL WORKS AS DOES THE TACHOMETER, WIPERS, TURN SIGNALS, LIGHTS, ETC. THE FUEL GAUGE DOES NOT WORK NOR DOES THE HORN.
THIS JEEP RUNS AND DRIVES WELL. THE 258 STRAIGHT 6 STARTS EASILY AND RUNS LIKE A TOP. IT DOES NOT SMOKE, RUN HOT, KNOCK, ETC. I REALLY HAVEN'T EVEN NOTICED ANY SIGNIFICANT OIL LEAKS EITHER. THE 4 SPEED TRANSMISSION SHIFTS WELL TOO WITH NO GRINDING. THE 4 WHEEL DRIVE WORKS JUST AS IT SHOULD TOO IN HIGH AND LOW RANGE. THE TIRES ARE LIKE NEW WITH LOTS OF TREAD REMAINING AND THE BRAKES FEEL FINE. I HAVE SOME MAINTENANCE RECORDS FOR THE JEEP AND ALL OF THE ORIGINAL OWNER'S BOOKS AND DOCUMENTS. AGAIN, THIS IS A VERY NICE UNRESTORED (ALMOST UNTOUCHED) CJ. THESE ARE GETTING HARDER AND HARDER TO FIND AND ARE ONLY APPRECIATING IN VALUE.

Last year was good to Jeep. Chrysler has announced its trail-rated brand set an all-time global sales record in 2012 by moving 701,626 units. That number easily surpasses the previous record set in 1999 when Jeep sold 675,494 models. All told, the brand saw a 19-percent sales increase worldwide over 2011, and much of that swell can be traced directly to the Wrangler. While the Grand Cherokee led Jeep sales, the Wrangler posted record numbers both globally and within the US, moving 194,142 and 141,669 units in each market, respectively.

Meanwhile, the Compass beat its previous global sales record with 103,321 units rolling off of dealer lots. In the US, Jeep sold 62,010 Patriot units, breaking that model's previous record as well. Jeep's impressive performance in 2012 marks the second year in a row the brand has seen double-digit percentage sales increases. Check out the full press release below.
Consumer Reports has released its 2014 Car Brand Report Cards, with Lexus again reigning at the top and doing so with the same industry-topping score of 79 that it registered in last year's Report Cards. This year, the institute credited its lineup for being "usually quiet, comfortable, and fuel-efficient," noting it's the only brand on the list "to achieve an excellent average overall reliability score." The Car Brand Report Cars list is meant to rank the best all-around vehicles based on CR testing and reliability results tallied by subscribers it surveyed. Each brand included must have sufficient test and reliability data for at least three models, a standard which left out 11 marques including Fiat, Jaguar, Land Rover and Porsche.

This 2014 Brand Report Cars edition is the first of a new format in which sub-brands have been broken out from their parent brands, with Acura using this year to move up the leaderboard into second place with a score of 75 for its "reliable, well-finished and somewhat sporty models." The top three was rounded out by Audi, climbing from eighth to third by scoring a 74 for "well-crafted interiors, nice handling and good gas mileage." Audi scored highest in the road-test portion, its improved reliability aiding its rise. The top nine was completed by Subaru, Toyota, Mazda, Honda, Infiniti and Mercedes-Benz.
Ford and Jeep weighed in at the other end of the rankings, Jeep taking the lowest overall score in the road tests and hampered by "a mix of spotty reliability." Ford was sunk by reliability issues with its MyFord Touch infotainment system which consumers found troublesome enough to negate its cars earning "solid test scores" for being "very nice to drive." Perhaps the rumored switch from Microsoft to Blackberry's QNX for the next generation SYNC will help them out. Cadillac's score also took a hit for infotainment reasons after it was the leading US brand last year, the CUE system in the XTS dragging Cadillac to the bottom of all General Motors brands.
Chrysler's spate of successful products is about to be marred by a trio of recalls. The Pentastar is recalling 51,477 Ram trucks and Jeep SUVs. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there have been no reported accidents, injuries or deaths related to the affected vehicles.
The largest action covers the Ram 1500, which is seeing 45,961 trucks being recalled. Models built between June 26, 2012 and February 5, 2013 are being recalled due to a potential software issue in the electronic stability control. Apparently, the system can be randomly deactivated upon vehicle startup.
Chrysler is also recalling 4,458 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee models. Covering everything but the SRT models, the potentially defective SUVs were built between January 14 and March 20, 2013. This recall focuses on "premium headlights," which means cars equipped with LED running lights. During the switch from the bright daytime running lamp setting to the low-intensity parking light setting, an electrical spike can cause one of the Jeep's computers to go into a safe mode, turning off the LEDs. This violates Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
