That's nice. CC should buy that, put a GL4X4 sticker on it and make it a DD.
Ooops, needs emision control stuff.
Ooops, my wife said NO....it doesn't have A/C!
Perhaps the seller has an adjustable rate mortgage or a balloon payment due on that thing in the background

I don't care what he says, I've seen better built on this site for less. $64,547 must include the jeep because unless alot of that stuff is one off fabrication he honestly paid too much. Hell I'm betting Koz or JCR could build a better jeep than that for less.

Of course he paid too much.

He wanted it that way, so he called around, then had it done. He did NO work whatsover on it. It's a toy for somebody with some diposable income.

He didn't search around for parts, have to order anything, save up, or trade anything.

Just wrote a check, then it's done.

The sad part is that it's probably never been past a dirt road.

Hell, I'll sell you mine for a lot less. No I don't have a chevy V-8 but the money you save, you could install one. But mine has been wheeled , $30,000.00 for the Rubicon with extra's or $35,000.00 with a 18' aluminum trailer and extra's.

If I had $85k to spend, it would not be on a Heep. It would be on a 4x4 Viper.
