Engine:6 cyl 258
Drive Type: 4WD
Warranty: Vehicle does NOT have an existing warranty
Frame-off restoration completed in 2012. Frame professionally sandblasted and painted. Rebuilt both axles (Dana 44 rear and AMC 30 front). New 3.53 gears, leaf springs and shocks. New Jasper engine (@3000 miles on it now). T 176 4 speed manual transmission. 1989 Wrangler tub, undercoated with Eastwood product and inside was Herculined. Professional paint job on the outside. Painless wiring kit. All new gauges. New gas tank, brakes, all stainless brake lines, fuel lines, even flexible brake lines are braided. 1" body lift, 1.5 inch shackle lift. 33" Pro Comp tires. Vintage seats with "CJ" logo (pictured). I used an HEI distributor, so no coil. All accessories (PS pump, alternator, starter, radiator, power brake booster) brand new. Even lower steering column is new. PSC hi performance steering box. Clearly, no expense was spared. Everything on this Jeep is either new or refurbished. Odometer: Before the restoration, the old Jeep had 126,000 miles. I used the best odometer I had, which stated 16,901. It now states 19,800 miles. So I have put @3000 miles on it since completion. This is one of the cleanest Jeeps you'll find. Not used off road, but she'd love to go :). Only a few minor issues: Gas gauge does not work. Worked for awhile, then quit. Small paint bubble on passenger's door (pictured), couple other nicks and scratches, nothing major. $20,000 invested in this project, reserve price is much less than that. If you're looking for a clean, tough CJ, look no further!

We've known for some time that the new, Fiat-based baby Jeep (which may or may not be called the Jeepster) is set to arrive at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. What we weren't sure of was whether its platform mate, the so-called Fiat 500X, would be doing so alongside or at a later date. Well, according to Reuters, we'll get to see the first all-wheel-drive 500 later this year in the City of Lights.
Yes, we can expect the 500X to arrive at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, according to an official with an Italian trade union. The unnamed source cited retooling at Fiat's Melfi factory, in southern Italy, which currently produces the Grande Punto. It's expected that the newest member of the growing 500 family will replace the Suzuki SX4-based Fiat Sedici, although when the X will go on sale remains an open question.
According to Reuters, both the Jeepster and 500X will be built alongside each other in Italy. Whether the 500X will cross the pond with it's slat-grilled cousin, though, remains to be seen (we're leaning towards yes).
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.
Striving for improved fuel economy, we already knew that Chrysler will begin using a nine-speed automatic transmission in some of its new products this year, but what we haven't known is that volume at which this gearbox will be used. According to Bloomberg, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has been quoted as saying that the automaker expects to sell close to 200,000 units equipped with this new transmission in 2013. Those gear-rich trannies will be spread out across three models, consisting of the redesigned Chrysler 200, the still-unnamed Jeep Liberty replacement and the Dodge Dart.
This transmission should play a pivotal role in making Chrysler vehicles more competitive in their respective segments. Just for comparison, one of the Dart's key competitors, the Toyota Corolla, still uses a four-speed automatic, and a previous report indicates that the next-generation 200 could get up to 38 miles per gallon on the highway, which is better than most non-hybrid midsize sedans on the market. Marchionne says that the new Jeep model is expected during the second quarter of this year, but there is no word as to when the new 200 or nine-speed Dart will debut, but clearly Dodge would like to have the transmission in its compact yesterday. As for that volume figure, it definitely doesn't seem out of reach since the Dart, Liberty and 200 combined for a total of more than 225,000 units in 2012.
How many more gears can we expect in future cars? Probably not many more, since the CEO of transmission-builder ZF, Stefan Sommer, previously stated that nine speeds was the "natural limit" for transmissions.
