This Jeep started life as a 1997 TJ Wrangler. I frame stretched it 15" to match the dimensions of a Jeep LJ Unlimited. The difference is the full stretch is behind the door giving a 108" wheelbase. This allows the use of a factory LJ soft or hard top while giving excellent approach and departure angles.
This Jeep runs and drives great. Tons of power when needed, and docile and easy to drive when you don't. Would work well as a daily driver or a dedicated trail rig. Drive to the trails, wheel, and drive home. Cruises down the freeway great - and even gets over 20 MPG at 60 MPH. Of course, does amazing on the trails.
Has lots of room in the back for gear. Has working OBD2 port for diagnostics and emission. No codes. Will need a catalytic converter to pass a visual inspection if you have one.
Only selling due to being burned out on this project. Time to start something new.
Frame stretch, suspension, and tires all like new. Four trail runs and a few thousand miles on the road.
Lots of time and money went into this one, own something that is truly unique!

This is an awesome Jeep that gets looks everywhere I drive it. It isn't however a show Jeep. It has issues with the paint and some dings. Also the parking brake is not hooked up (never bothered me since it's an automatic) and the heat and defrost settings work but the vent setting does not.
Please feel free to email me with any questions. I have more pictures on my photobucket I can direct you to, and some videos.

It happens every year. We bid adieu to some cars and trucks that will be missed, and say good riddance to others wondering how they stayed around so long. Whether they're being killed off for slow sales or due to a new product coming along to replace them, the list of vehicles being discontinued after 2012 is surprisingly long and diverse.

CNN Money has compiled a list of departing vehicles, to which we've added a few more of our own. In the slow sales column, cars like the Lexus HS 250h, Mercedes-Benz R-Class and the full Maybach lineup appear, while the Ford Escape Hybrid, Mazda CX-7 and Hyundai Veracruz are all having their gaps filled with more modern and more fuel-efficient alternatives. Obvious exceptions to the rule include models that still sell in decent numbers like the Jeep Liberty and the Chrysler Town & Country (which will eventually be replaced by a crossover-like vehicle).
Check out our gallery of discontinued cars above, then scroll down for more information.
A pair of cyber security experts have awarded the ignominious title of most hackable vehicles on American roads to the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, 2014 Infiniti Q50 and 2015 Cadillac Escalade.

Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek are set to release a report at the Black Hat hacking conference in Las Vegas, Automotive News reports. The two men found the Jeep, Caddy and Q50 were easiest to hack based not on actual tests with the vehicles, but a detailed analysis of systems like Bluetooth and wireless internet access - basically, anything that'd allow a hacker to remotely gain access to the vehicle's systems.
Considering this lack of hands-on testing, the pair acknowledge that "most hackable" could be a relative term - they point out that the vehicles may actually be quite secure.
Following the forced-hand introduction of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, there has definitely been a mix of responses revolving around everything from its design to the return of the legendary nameplate. As evidence of this, just check out the 1,000+ comments in our article last week and some of the many opinions that were voiced. Following this not-too-warm reception, Ward's Auto had a chance to talk to Chrysler designer chief - and SRT president - Ralph Gilles, who shed a little more light on the styling direction of the new Cherokee.
Rather than looking to previous models for inspiration, Gilles says that the Cherokee has been designed to be more contemporary, with Mark Allen, head of Jeep design, adding that a main goal was to make sure the design still looks modern five years from now. Interestingly, Gilles does point out that one of the design elements incorporated on the new Cherokee that pays homage to past Jeeps is the sharply downward angle for the leading edge of the beltline, which he notes is meant to mimic the look of the old YJ and TJ Wrangler models fitted with half doors. Of course, the squared-off wheel openings - a signature Jeep cue - are still used.
This is probably a design that will need to be seen on the street in actual daylight to properly assess, but in the meantime, we'll bring you full images and impressions when the Cherokee debuts at next month's New York Auto Show.
