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have rust in this part of Colorado, by "old rust" I mean it looks like it was caused by the original carpet and is no longer active.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.

As a brand within Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, SRT may have an uncertain future, but it's pumping out some seriously mean machines anyway. The supercharged Hellcat V8 may be gobbling up most of the headlines with its 707 horsepower, but even the Grand Cherokee SRT is getting some small updates for the 2015 model year.
Thu, 07 Nov 2013 13:00:00 EST
Most importantly for many enthusiasts, the Grand Cherokee SRT is getting a slight power bump. Don't expect the 700+ hp from the Hellcat, but this SUV sees a modest 5-hp and 5-pound-feet of torque improvement to bring output to 475 hp and 470 lb-ft for its 6.4-liter V8 with an eight-speed automatic. The minor change doesn't change the sprint to 60 miles per hour, clocking in at the same 4.8 seconds, or the tow rating at 7,200 pounds. Still, more grunt is never a bad idea.
Another new addition is the Active Noise Canceling system as a standard feature for this powerful SUV. It adds four microphones around the vehicle and uses the stereo system to nullify extraneous sound. However, Jeep claims that the meaty exhaust note from the V8 still gets through into the cabin for driver enjoyment.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Chrysler is recalling 91,559 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs from the 2014 model year due to some serious electrical issues. All of the affected models were built between January 8 and August 20, 2013.
Wed, 15 Oct 2014 11:16:00 EST
The NHTSA report states that, "Due to a disruption of computer communications and loose alternator ground wires, the affected vehicles may experience random illumination of multiple instrument cluster warning lights, loss of cluster illumination and loss of anti-lock brake system (ABS) and electronic stability control (ESC) function." The loss of ABS or ESC would greatly reduce a driver's ability to control the vehicle if things get squirrely, and since these failures would not be illuminated on the dashboard display, drivers would not be warned of the issue, increasing the risk of a crash.
The recall is expected to kick off sometime this month. Chrysler will notify affected Jeep owners and dealerships "will update the ABS and instrument cluster module software and tighten the alternator ground wire," according to NHTSA.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is hauling a multitude of modified models to the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas this November, and the company is releasing the first teasing sketches of many of them.
Unfortunately, FCA isn't giving many solid details on any of the concepts other than saying the vehicles from Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram and Fiat all benefit from tuning from its Mopar performance brand. The teaser photos include a sinister-looking Chrysler 200S, Fiat 500 Abarth with two-tone paint and a scorpion on the hood, a red and black 500L, seemingly two different takes on the Jeep Renegade, a green Dodge Challenger wearing the T/A badge, an orange and black Dart, a very neon Charger, just the outline of a red and black Viper, a Ram ProMaster in Mopar livery and a Ram pickup called the Outdoorsman.
Take a look through the gallery to see what you think of the sketches for these concepts, and scroll down for the full announcement from FCA.
