1998 Jeep TJ Sport, 4.0L Auto, 87k, Trade?
1998 Jeep TJ Sport
4.0L Inline six
87,507 Miles (Will go up lightly, it's currently a DD)
This is my Dad's Jeep. He bought it about 5-6 years ago with 66k miles, and only drove it in the summer until this year. This is the first winter it's been out since he's owned it. Not abused, been in two tracks occasionally in northern MI, and that's about the extent of it's off-road career.
Extremely clean, solid body and underbody.
Jeep runs, drives, rides excellent. No mechanical issues, 4wd works with no noises. 70mph on the highway with no vibrations, etc. Newer Goodyear Wrangler MT/R's on 16" Aluminum wheels. Maybe 5k miles on them, with matching spare. New Bestop Soft top in early spring of 2011, no rips or tears, no scratches on windows and all zippers in great shape. Aftermarket CD Player and Pioneer speakers. (Does not have sound bar, just two fronts). Interior is good, carpets need cleaned or pulled and replaced with bedliner, etc. No rear seat, never had one when he bought it, but brackets are there.
Recently installed new radiator, water pump, and thermostat. Has a heat shield that rattles at idle, obviously an easy fix. Sway bar end links broke, havn't replaced those yet but also another pretty easy fix, if you wanted to. Paint is starting to peel from the fender flares (resprayed them about 3 years ago), they could use a recoat. Other than that it needs nothing.
Was at one time owned by a volunteer firefighter, has strobes hooked to headlights and siren under hood, but would need to be wired up.
He doesn't need to sell it or trade it, he'd even be happy to keep it, but feels he's owned it long enough and is ready to move into something different if the right trade or offer is out there. He bought the Jeep because he had bought a brand new CJ7 in 1986 and missed having one since he sold that in '96.
He's open to lots of trades, but off the bat, please no sleds. He's open to full trades or partial with cash on your end. Trucks, cars, Classics, Land, etc.
$9,500 / BO / trade.
Please feel free to respond with any questions, offers or pic requests.
