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have rust in this part of Colorado, by "old rust" I mean it looks like it was caused by the original carpet and is no longer active.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

Earlier this month, a very significant Jeep was celebrated at the Toledo North Assembly plant. No, it wasn't the upcoming reincarnation of the Jeep Cherokee, but instead it was a 1943 Willys MB that visited the Toledo grounds where it had been built exactly 70 years ago to the day.
Fri, 17 May 2013 10:15:00 EST
Of course, the actual building where the MBs rolled off the assembly line before heading to Europe for World War II no longer exists, but that didn't stop Italian owner Vittorio Argento from having the vehicle shipped to the US to make its trek back to its birth place. According to Chrysler, Argento's MB is still 95-percent original and it drove 1,000 miles from New Jersey to Toledo.
The whole adventure was chronicled on a blog aptly named A Jeep Comes Home. Scroll down for a brief video from Chrysler and for some photos of the Toledo visit and be sure to read more at Argento's blog.
According to a report on the Chrysler Communications Facebook page and one fairly grainy image of the production line, at around 11:00AM Eastern this morning, the one-millionth Jeep Wrangler JK will roll out of the company's Toledo assembly plant.
Mon, 04 Feb 2013 17:20:00 EST
The third-generation or "JK" Jeep Wrangler has been around since the 2007 model year, and has obviously been more popular than ever. With a greater than ever number of trim levels, two-door and four-door Unlimited models and hardy off-roading Rubicon packages, the JK offers more to choose from than ever for those looking for something in a traditional Jeep. In fact, with the modern 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 powering it, the 2012 model year saw more than 140k Wrangers sold here in the US; the best-ever figure for the model.
With a model refresh due out for the Wrangler in 2015 (along with the likely addition of a diesel engine option), we expect that sales will continue to roll right along, too.
