This is a very capable rig that has seen many fun times, and led me to meeting allot of amazing people. I have other priorities in life that do not let me go out wheeling as much as I would like any longer. The 2-3 times, if that some times, a year that I go it is not worth it to me to keep her. Its time for her to go make someone else smile.....and sweat and cry and bleed....lol

the bad to some
-its got some light dings, some scratches, paint ain't perfect, its dirty,etc.... Its a jeep that was used for wheeling what do you expect... It never wheeled at the mall, sorry....lol

the good to the rest of us
-its a Jeep
-they go forever
-its built not bought
-has never left me stranded
-comes with rear TJ flares as well(I just never took the time to install them
-still registered and inspected so we can go for a short ride if you want to to try it just no wheeling it till you buy it....

-its a turn key wheeler ready to go out and play in the rocks and make new friends
