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.

Among the design concepts Jeep has prepared for Beijing Motor Show this year are a pair of Cherokees dressed up in contrasting schemes.

In one corner we have the Sageland concept pictured above, drawing its inspiration from Shangri-La with an Ivory Peal tri-coat and bronze trim for the grille, fascia appliqués, roof rack, sunroof, mirror caps and exhaust tips. Inside it's all earth tones with light gray Nappa leather seats and red and blue top-stitching inspired by traditional Chinese themes.
Meanwhile the Urbane concept (pictured right) takes the Cherokee in a different direction with steel blue metallic paintjob and black accents. Inside it adopts the theme of Chinese calligraphy with Piano Black accepts and dark red Nappa leather.
Jeep is hard at work on the next-generation Wrangler, though the truck is still a few years from hitting the trails. The new model will still be aimed at off-roaders, but rumors suggest it will be a little more comfortable than previous versions to appeal to more people.

According to Road and Track, Jeep is developing a power-retractable top as an expensive option for the Wrangler. There is no word if the top in question is a sliding canvas rollback like the ones found on many European vehicles or a full convertible hardtop or softtop, nor do we know whether it would be made available on two- or four-door models. It might be a nice feature for some buyers but would certainly add complexity to a truck already known for its ruggedness. We asked Jeep for confirmation, but Jeep spokesperson Todd Goyer could only remind us that the company "can't comment about future products."
In news that is likely to irk the faithful, R&T reports the next model may also ditch its folding windshield for improved safety and possibly even get rid of its rear-mounted, full-size spare tire. The new Wrangler won't go completely soft, though, and will reportedly still feature removable doors and solid axles.
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.
