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.

Europe gets Jeep Wrangler Polar limited edition

Wed, 04 Sep 2013 09:33:00 EST

Jeep will be bringing an all-new, limited-edition model to the European market called the Wrangler Polar. Based on the Wrangler Sahara and set to make its debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Wrangler Polar sports new Hyrdro Blue paint, gloss black 18-inch wheels, a body-color hardtop, and the regular mix of Mopar styling accessories. Billet Silver Metallic and Bright White are available for those that don't dig the glossy blue, while a two-door variant will be available in addition to the four-door pictured above.
The Polar's interior features similar tweaks; Pearl White contrast stitching can be found on both the seats and steering wheel, while ceramic White bezels and other accents give a nice contrasting look to the cabin.
Underhood sits an engine that should make American Wrangler enthusiasts weep - a 2.8-liter, four-cylinder turbodiesel. With 200 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque channeled through a five-speed automatic transmission, the Wrangler Polar should handle itself just fine on normal roads. British buyers will also be able to select the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. For rougher stuff, Dana axles can be found front and rear (Dana 30 up front and Dana 44 in back), while the Command-Trac four-wheel-drive system and its two-speed transfer case should be enough for when the roads disappear.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles: The next five years

Tue, 06 May 2014 19:15:00 EST

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past 24 hours, you've no doubt read about all of the big future product news coming out of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles today. We had individual brand reports from Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Maserati and even Ferrari, but in the interest of simplifying and summarizing, we're going to list out the hard facts once more. Of course, with all of this still off in the future, there's still the possibility that a few changes will be made. But as of what we know right now, here's what's coming, and what's going away.

Jeep Grand Cherokee in headliner fire probe

Fri, 23 Aug 2013 14:30:00 EST

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is launching an investigation into 146,000 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs from the 2012 model year, The Detroit News reports. This comes as the result of the government safety agency receiving three complaints from owners who cited fires inside the Jeep's cabin.
According to the report, NHTSA says:
"The customers reported a burning odor and visible smoke coming from the headliner while the vehicle was being driven. This was followed by flames from the headliner itself. Customers lowered the windows in an effort to clear the smoke but this increased the fire's intensity. All three vehicles had to be extinguished with a fire extinguisher or by the fire department as they continued to burn after the vehicle was turned off."
