For sale is a custom 1972 CJ5 Jeep. Jeep has had suspension totally customized and built by a professional. Axles are Dana 60 full length axles that have been moved forward and back for stability. There is 2 Pro Comp shocks per wheel that have been custom mounted as well. Dual Pro Comp steering stabilizers up front. The brakes are manual with disc on front and drum on rear. Engine is a 304 V8 with a 3 speed manual transmission. Some custom options include custom tailights, Monsta lined exterior, complete rust preventative covererd axles, frame, and interior. Jeep had about 12 to 15 inches of lift and rides on 46'' Mickey Thompson Baja Claws. Jeep has never been in mud or rock climbed. I drive this Jeep mostly around town but seems to ride smother once you get to 40+ mph. Please note that this is not a restored Jeep, but a nice play toy to cruise around in and attract a ton of attention. Please e-mail or text me at 336-688-5880 with any information and I encourage if you are interested in buying please come and look to ensure this is what you are looking for. Jeep runs fine, but could use a carbureator cleanup to really run flawless. Interior could use some updated gauges and will need a front driveshaft, but I can help with that. NOTE...4 wheel drive does work. I will entertain trades as well, but not really looking for tremendous projects. I can send additional pics if you are a serious buyer. Thanks for looking.

Just a few weeks back, we reported on the theft of an Audi RS5 by a pair of creative thieves who managed to swipe the car's keys when the salesperson stepped away from their desk. Now, a Florida dealership is missing a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 after some crooks switched the Jeep's keys with an identical, non-functioning set.
According to the report from local NBC affiliate WPTV, the men went in and spoke to a dealer about the Jeep. They walked outside, took a look at it, started it up and in the process managed to switch out the fobs. After doing their time with the salesperson, the thieves walked back out to the car, got in and drove away.
"I mean obviously, the way it was done, I think that they were professionals and they knew what they were doing," said Arrigo Jeep General Manager Joe Tufo. "The fact that they did it in broad daylight and switched the key fob and it was like it was nothing. That's what makes it unique," he added.
The cute little Jeep Renegade isn't even on sale yet, but here at SEMA, the Mopar folks are giving us a taste of what's possible for the little CUV in the big wide world of customization. Part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' massive SEMA spread, the Renegade shows up in fresh Riptide and and Frostbite guises.
First up, the Riptide arrives in Vibrance Grandeur Blue with black wheels and a big ol' Jeep Performance Parts logo on the rear pillar. There are a few black accents elsewhere on the exterior, and a surfboard carrier rides up on the roof. The blue color scheme also finds its way inside the Renegade, on the instrument cluster and side panels, with contrasting white accents.
By contrast, the Frostbite Renegade reverses the Riptide's color scheme, with white being the main paint of choice, with blue accents abound. And inside, Katzkin seats wear blue upholstery. The Frostbite is a pretty functional creation, as well, with a Mopar ski/snowboard roof rack and a Jeep Performance Parts rock rail guard.
After much debating and hand-wringing, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration now says it has "no reservations" with Chrysler's plan to recall certain Jeep Liberty and Grand Cherokee models over concerns that their fuel tanks, which are located behind the rear axle, could rupture or leak in the event of a rear impact. The longstanding argument between the two entities saw Chrysler openly defy the Feds after a request to recall 2.7 million units back in June.
Chrysler's "voluntary campaign" will instead see it recall 1.56-million 1993-2004 model year Grand Cherokee SUVs, along with 2002-2007 Liberty models. Affected vehicles will get a trailer hitch installed free of charge, which Chrysler says will provide an additional degree of protection for the fuel tanks in the event of a crash. Jeeps with Mopar-branded hitches or hitches that were installed at the factory aren't affected by this recall.
Chrysler's argument throughout this battle has been that the Jeeps in question are no more susceptible to fires than comparable vehicles from the same time period, a position that NHTSA has seemingly arrived at as well. "Those vehicles performed at a rate similar to their peers. That is the keystone analysis as to whether something poses an unreasonable risk to safety," said outgoing NHTSA boss David Strickland during an interview with the The Associated Press.
