Its about that time that I sell my Jeep. Dont want to but with now having 2 small kids a 2 door CJ5 is not a good family car as I cant put the kids in it. Being I only drive it by myself I rarely drive it anymore. I had replaced the stock 304 when it had low oil pressure before it went. Motor is a 84 wagoneer block rebuilt for mild power. 9.5 compression pistons, new roller rockers, cam and the upgraded oil pump. 4bbl 650 with a Edelbrock intake and wooden riser plate. A...t the same time I instaled a twin stick for the transfer case. The frame was also boxed at the front to help stiffen. I also have a un instaled roll bar tie in kit that comes with it. I also have a hyd clutch kit that was never instaled yet along with other misc parts that I aquired when I was doing the repairs.

Body is a fiberglass tub and fenders/hood. Steel grill. Paint about 12 years old. Minor chips and the hood has a small chip when the previous owner flung the hood open. 2.5" lift with springs. 33x12.5 tires and a brand new spare/rim. Power steering. All new hoses/belts wires/plugs, fuel pump and lines. Brakes due to not driving much in 1.5 years Id either cut the drums or just replace for how cheap they are. Drivehaft was rebuilt and balanced. All new U/joints on the rear driveshaft. Have new Ujoints for the front axle uninstalled.

Top is a Bestop but is showing a tight fit still. Doors skins are shrunken and the front snaps popped. Ive never had the top off. Just doors off and back window rolled up. Some off roading but always mild, as I never got the rollbar tie in done I wouldn't take it into anything. Seats are Jeep and are from a Wrangler were new 12 years ago when the tub was done.

New build 360 AMC 4 years old with a few hundred miles on it.
Optima Yellow top battery
4sp T18 Trans 6.5:1 first gear
Dana20 Transfer case with twin stick. Pill still installed so you cannot force high/low onindependent axles. Allows for high and low with or without 4wd. Pills need to be removed to allow front wheel drive.

Alternator is new and is a GM style hi amp. Similar to the Mean Green but I forget the brand. 140Amp I think.

Gas gauge recently stopped working, has a new sender with the tank but never replaced the gauge. Fuel tank sender is accessible through a hatch under the rear sear. Round boat access hatch/waterproof.

Jeep gets about 12-14mpg on the highway.

Lots of receipts including the motor rebuild and many many parts. Over 18k into this. Just need to cut the loss as its just costing me 600 a year for insurance and not driving it. Someone needs to take and use it.

500 Deposit required when purchasing. Non refundable. Paid before pickup. Will work with a shipper for non local purchase. I do not have a trailer for delivery.

Sold As-Is no warranty implied.
