I purchased this survivor only 2 months ago with the intention of restoring but unfortunately, a family member needs help so I am selling in order to do that.
The reason I purchased this vehicle is because it runs really good! The V6 starts right up, the the auto transmission seems to shift fine. All the lights work! Yes, headlights, brake-lights, and turn-signals all work! Heater fan runs and the wipers work. It also has nearly new tires. I don't know exactly how old they are but they have full tread on all 4. In other words, it has the major mechanical in good working order. The cosmetics are another story. As you can see from the pics, it has they typical rust in the typical places (floor, rockers, tail-gate, etc.). The hood also has a crease across it where someone let it flap up against the windshield frame. Not to worry though, I have the following spare body-parts that come with the vehicle. They're used but mostly solid and perfectly usable as replacements or to use sections from if preferred.
- 2 - (both sides) front fenders
- 2 - (both sides) metal door skins
- Various badges, emblems
- Window handles
- Shifter gasket/surround
- Glove-box door
- Brake-light trim pieces
Currently, the vehicle is setup with the half-cab and as you may know, the top is removable, which give you several options. It can be run as a roadster, converted to a soft-top, a full hard-top or fix up the half-cab and leave as is.
***Whenever I list an item I like to list any known issues so there are no surprises, so here is where I reveal all that I know that could be of concern to a potential buyer.
That's it! Wish I could keep it. Good luck!
- There is rust. Floors, rockers and tail-gate are the main areas. Tail-gate is solid but has the rust at the lower edge.
- Seats are pretty far gone. I mean, the padding would need to be replaced before recovering, I think. Not an expert here.
- When looking at the vehicle from behind, it has a slight lean toward the driver side. Not sure if that's a saggy spring or what but it drives ok.
- Exhaust has some leaks. Needs at least some repair if not replaced.
- There is no actual Title on this vehicle. I purchased with a simple bill of sale. Title is not required in Georgia on 1986 and older vehicles. Vehicle is registered to me in Georgia.

Hey, Jeep fans. If you think the idea of a funky-looking, car-based Cherokee revival is offensive, have a listen to what might be in store for the next-gen Jeep Wrangler. Automotive News is reporting that as Jeep develops the 2016 Wrangler, weight reduction is a crucial target, and the Wrangler's rugged solid axles could be sacrificed in the name of better fuel economy.

We've already heard the next Wrangler will go on a serious diet using aluminum body panels and an air suspension system, so the idea of a four-wheel independent suspension setup for this OG SUV isn't all that surprising. Besides, it's not like an independent suspension would limit the Wrangler's off-road abilities - just check out the Hummer H1. In fact, it might be the aftermarket parts companies - not Wrangler enthusiasts - who would be most disappointed by such a drastic suspension change, as the article states that the Wrangler's solid axles and coil-link suspension make it the most popular SUV for customization.
There are probably still a couple years before we'll start hearing any concrete details about the 2016 Wrangler, at which time it will be interesting to see how stricter fuel economy and crash safety regulations have been balanced with traditional Wrangler cues like its removable doors and roof and folding windshield. Let us know in the comments below if a Wrangler sans solid axles is any less of a Wrangler.
Ice skates are spectacular on frozen water, yet they are dreadful everyday footwear. I consider the Jeep Wrangler equally as specialized.

I recently spent a week with a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4X4. Introduced for the 2007 model year, the Wrangler Unlimited is a standard JK two-door with 20.6 inches added to its wheelbase and two additional doors bolted to its passenger compartment. While Jeep offers the Unlimited in seven different trim levels, the desirable Rubicon is the most capable when the pavement ends, as it boasts a slew of hardcore off-road tools including front and rear electronic locking differentials and a front sway bar that can be disengaged at the touch of a button for improved articulation. My I-Look-Like-A-Traffic-Cone test model started with a base price of $34,095 (plus $995 destination). Options including a five-speed automatic transmission, Uconnect, tow package and a premium soft top, drove the bottom line up to $38,630.
In an unusual move, Chrysler is idling its recently hired second shift of 2014 Jeep Cherokee builders because, Chrysler spokeswoman Jodi Tinson said in a statement, it already has built the "critical number of vehicles we need to stock dealerships once containment is released," Automotive News reports.
After the "critical" 9,430 Cherokees were built, the layoff was enacted so as not to strain the automaker's logistics partners before the Cherokee is actually released. Chrysler says the temporary layoff will last about two weeks, with 500 workers out of work and another 600 reassigned at the Toledo Assembly Complex where the sports utility vehicle was being built. The second-shift workers were hired on August 19.
Chrysler previously insisted that it would release the Cherokee to dealerships by the end of the third quarter, and it initially planned to start selling the SUVs in mid-August. Apparently the Cherokee needed a software fix before hitting showrooms, which is how Chrysler explains why the release schedule is out of whack. We're thinking that this software fix addresses the "powertrain calibration" issue that delayed the first media test drives of the model. According to the Toledo Blade, Chrysler has admitted it is doing "extended quality validation testing" but refused to provide more information.
