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
  • Hood
  • 2 - (both sides) metal door skins
  • Various badges, emblems
  • Door-handles
  • Window handles
  • Shifter gasket/surround
  • Glove-box door
  • Horn-button
  • 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.
  • 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.
That's it! Wish I could keep it. Good luck!

Jeep Wrangler Mojo and Cherokee Dakar teased ahead of Moab Easter Safari

Wed, 02 Apr 2014 09:32:00 EST

Jeep has an annual tradition of debuting wild, new concepts during its Easter Jeep Safari, and this year looks to be no different. The automaker has already confirmed two of the six vehicles for 2014 - the Cherokee Dakar (pictured above) and Wrangler Mojo. This year's event runs in Moab, Utah, from April 12-20.
There are no official details about either of the concepts yet - Jeep will release more info on the new models next week. Judging by the pictures, though, the Cherokee Dakar appears to be lifted with some knobby off-road tires. The Wrangler Mojo looks to have a bulging hood that might hide a more powerful engine underneath.
Past vehicles at the Easter Jeep Safari have included a Hemi V8-powered Wrangler, a classically inspired pickup and modernized Jeep Forward Control. Since this is the brand's chance to express itself every year, hopefully it has some more sensational concepts up its sleeve. Scroll down to read the little information that has been revealed about this year's models so far.

Jeep Cherokee sales rival Wrangler after two months

Sun, 29 Dec 2013 19:02:00 EST

In our First Drive article on the 2014 Jeep Cherokee we said, "our informal and thoroughly unscientific opinion is they're going to sell tons of them. Why? Because it is very good." So far, it appears the public concurs. Of course, it's very early - the new compact utility has logged just one month of confirmed sales, but Larry Vellequette at Automotive News says dealers have told him that the second month of sales will be even better, a message that mirrors what we've heard from company execs.
In its first, severely truncated month on sale, the Cherokee sold 579 units. With all of November to play with, though, dealers moved 10,169 of them - compared to 11,753 Wranglers and 14,798 Grand Cherokees. That helped propel Jeep to a 30-percent year-on-year improvement for the month, Chrysler Group to a 16-percent improvement and the group's 44th consecutive month of sales growth, exceeding analyst expectations in posting its best November numbers since 2007.
If it can just keep replicating the its first month of sales, the finalist in North American Truck of the Year voting will smoke the trade done by the outgoing Liberty, which didn't break 7,900 units in a month in the last four years of its life (and normally didn't get close to even that). In March this year, Chrysler said it wants to build 250,000 Cherokees in its Toledo assembly plant for global sales. It's early yet, but with second-month sales quoted as being as "strong as death," the bookies might be resetting the odds.

Marchionne: Midsize pickup still not in the cards; Ram 1500, Jeep Wrangler could use aluminum

Wed, 07 May 2014 11:32:00 EST

During the Fiat-Chrysler briefings on Tuesday, Reid Bigland, head of Ram Trucks, outlined the new product plans for his brand, including confirmation that an all-new light-duty Ram 1500 will launch in 2017. From there, discussions spun off in two directions, with the main questions being: will Ram build a midsize pickup? And, following Ford's move to extensively use aluminum in its new 2015 F-150, will Chrysler be using this weight-saving material for the next round of its fullsize truck, as well?
"I think there is room for a Ram 1000," Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne (pictured above) told members of the media, saying this is a conversation the automaker has been having internally for several years now. "We've tried this ... we've actually taken it to clinics," Marchionne stated, adding that the "response has been lukewarm."
"I have better use of aluminum in this house than a pickup truck." - Sergio Marchionne
