I buy and sell 4X4 oil/gas fleet trucks and ship them all over the world. Some of the local dealers-mechanics-wholsalers I work with get older 4x4 trade ins that they are not willing to sell or finance on their lot because of age, miles, modifications, lift kits etc. This 1972 Jeep Commando belongs to a mechanic friend of mine, he took it in trade for payment and then started fixing it up. I have own and have owned a lot of vintage 4x4s, I know how they drive and can judge a good one from a bad one. If you are not familiar with vintage 4x4 vehicles that have been modified such as this I urge you to educate yourself before bidding. If you are local I urge you to inspect this Jeep in person, sold as is where is... Good luck and happy bidding!!!!

I am located in Durango Colorado, I will consider helping with delivery within 100 miles for .85 a mile after the Jeep is paid for in full.
The Good Stuff:
Here's what I know so far, this old rig starts, runs and drives pretty darn good for being so big and modified. Under the hood is an excellent running 258 6 cylinder engine, is very dry, super clean, no leaks that I see, valve cover has been resealed, has a Weber carb, a wrapped Hedman header, clean custom exhaust with a Flowmaster Muffler (it sounds great) 4 speed trans, twin stick transfer case, clutch is good, brakes are decent, steering is pretty tight, windshield wipers work, fan motor under the dash works, all gauges work, overall very mechanically sound. Has custom Alcan springs, a SPOA lift, custom 6 point cage welded to the frame, some kind of aggressive rear locker (unsure of front) marine stereo/speakers, chrome fire extinguisher, 36-13-16 Super Swamper tires on alloy wheels, brand new Swamper spare tire, new race bucket seats, 4 point race harnesses, custom front/rear bumpers w/d-rings and receiver hitches, bikini top, heavy duty rock sliders, Optima red top battery, Hi-lift jack and more. This Jeep would make an awesome back country hunting rig, is quiet and creeps-crawls along really well for being 42 years old.
The Not So Good Stuff:
This Jeep is 42 years old and so there is some negative stuff to be expected. The biggest issue is that there is some "old rust in the front floor boards (see photos) We don't have rust in this part of Colorado, by "old rust" I mean it looks like it was caused by the original carpet and is no longer active. There is no rust or anything in the frame or underside, only where there was carpet inside. There are scratches, scrapes, some old primer on the front passenger fender (see photos) a few dents-dings etc as you would expect on a rig built to be used like this. There is a "gash" on the backside of the radiator, can send a photo, does not affect anything. The marine stereo causes a slight drain on the battery so we unhook the positive cable when parked long term. The tires have very good tread but look somewhat old-weathered to me. This Jeep still needs some work ( a list that never ends on old Jeeps lol) but overall I like it very much, it's mechanically very solid, has a lot of potential. I drove it around in the sage all afternoon for photos and had a great time doing it, would guess it could be driven home if you're really careful but its really not meant to be on the street, a trailer would be a lot smarter. This is a super old cool off road ride and will make the right person very happy to own it.
Shipping: I have shipped industrial fleet trucks all over the world, have connections in the auto transport industry and have the ability to arrange wholesale shipping anywhere in the USA but the cost is entirely yours. For example, I just shipped a Jeep wrangler to Oklahoma for $600 and another to Wisconsin for $650, figure approx. .55-.65 a mile.

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).
With our deep dive and auto show coverage of the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee revealed at the Detroit Auto Show, we brought you as much information as Chrysler would allow us to, but one thing we're still left in the dark about was the pricing. It would seem that Jeep Garage might have the answer for that. The Jeep enthusiast forum claims to have gotten its hands on the ordering and pricing breakdown for the updated Grand Cherokee, and while a Jeep representative has yet to get back to us as to the validity of the site's claim, these preliminary numbers look pretty kosher to us.
Tue, 05 Feb 2013 09:28:00 EST
In base form, the two-wheel-drive Laredo will reportedly start at $28,795, which is a $1,100 increase over the 2013 model year, and the new Grand Cherokee Summit trim level starts at $47,995 for 4x2 models and $50,995 for the 4x4. Waiting for the new diesel engine? The torquey new 3.0-liter oil-burner will be a $4,500 option on Limited, Overland and Summit 4x4 models, but 4x2 pricing (and availability) are not known. As for the range-topping Grand Cherokee SRT (no longer called the SRT8), this added performance could run you an extra $2,700 with a new starting price of $62,995. More importantly, loaded to the gills with all available options, the 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT will top out at around $72,400 - or around $6,000 more than a fully loaded 2013 GC SRT8.
We'll let you know if the gang over at Jeep get back to us with any confirmation, but until then, head over to Jeep Garage to see the pricing details it has listed.
Once again, Chrysler had one of the most talked about Super Bowl commercials with its two-minute Whole Again Jeep spot, which was used to highlight its Operation SAFE Return program for US military personnel returning home from active duty. As part of this campaign, Jeep announced today that it will be donating up to $300,000 to the United Services Organizations (USO), and you can help.
Simply tweet using the #joinOSR hashtag on Twitter, visit the Yahoo! homepage or go to the Jeep Operation SAFE Return website, and Jeep will donate $1 to a fund that provides returning troops things like employment assistance and incentives to buy new vehicles. Jeep is also donating to this charity to the tune of $250 for each Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited (including the Freedom Edition model) and Jeep Patriot Freedom Edition model sold.
