Default Cheapest TJ ever?

I just picked this one up for $1500!

2000 TJ, 4.0 auto. 140k unmolested (so far) miles. Frame and body are in awesome shape. Zero rust on the tub, a bubble starting on one fender. The bad: transmission is slipping in reverse, top is janky, and a wheel cylinder is leaking.

Awesome find! I got mine for $2200 2.5 years ago, but it was a 98 4.0 5spd with 231k miles and some rust repair needed on the body and frame

Thanks, I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this one. My yj and zj are both on 35s and aren't great drivers. Maybe a 4" lift and 33s for this one and just clean it up a bit.

I know a guy looking for a TJ for his daughter.
Fit it, Clean it up, make it look pretty.
He's looking to spend $5 to 6k.

Actually a friend who owns a tow company bought this TJ for $1100 and flipped it to me. It's been sitting in a garage for a few years I guess, and the guy just wanted it gone. It'll make a nice driver. Even has working air!

I am thinking of selling my YJ now. 4 grand could get me a lift and tires, fix the other stuff and still put a few bucks in the bank. Thanks for the thumbs ups too!
