Default Thinking about selling the scrambler

Hey guys, I'm kicking around the idea of selling my scrambler. The Cleveland winters produce too much snow and I'm going to need a more comfortable daily driver (I have a Corvette right now and the Jeep is my other vehicle). I can't really do the "going to meet clients while wearing a suit" thing in this jeep.

Here's what I got: 85 Jeep Scrambler, 79K original miles, 258ci Inline 6cyl (original), 4spd manual, Dana 300 transfer case

Dana 44's out of a Scout, 4.56 gears, ARB air lockers front and rear with compressor, SOA with 1.5" RE YJ springs, 1" body lift, Shackle reversal, 1-ton steering and flat top knuckles (with high steer arms, but the steering is still on the original knuckle arms),tom woods driveshafts, 10K lb winch, stinger front bumper, interior cage fits under half hard top, half hard top, rear cage in case you want to mount a seat in the back, nice rear bumper with class III receiver hitch, bikini top, sport seats with 5pt harnesses, aluminum diamond plate tool box in back.

4 38x16x16 Mickey Thompson Baja Claws at 95%, MTII classic aluminum wheels (16x10) these wheel probably need more backspacing as the tires rub a bit when turning, 1 spare 38x14 SS SX 75% tread.

This jeep runs great, no problems, does 70 straight and true on the highway (with a tailwind :D ) and it gets 15 mpg!!! (probably due to the gearing). The body has no visible rust, however, the previous owner did put bondo in it and re-painted it. The frame is solid! I have undercoated everything since I have owned it. An auto mechanic by trade and I built this whole project and purposfully made it a "streetable" and capable rig! Most all of the nuts, bolts and hardware are new.

Here is a pic pre-stinger and tires


Here is the cage (pre-new seats and new tires/wheels)


Once again pre-seats, tires and stinger. This is to give an idea of the condition


Here are some that I took tonight (its hard to get good ones because the Jeep is continually covered in snow). I'm not a huge fan of how low the bumper hangs in the back, but it makes towing easier.

interior


And the new stinger. It appears that I lost a headlight bezel! I will replace


Any interest out the in this Jeep? Located in Cleveland, OH. Would make someone a great street drivable, very capable offroad vehicle.

As most of you know, these Scramblers are getting harder to find.

I'm remembering other stuff too. It has a set of rock sliders (steps) on the side (welded into the cage and frame). Also has 4 new Edelbrock Twin Tube shocks. All fuel lines, brake lines are new. Upgraded to power brakes (with a YJ power booster) from the manual ones it had. The front axle was completely rebuilt with all seals, etc by a shop in town only 6 months ago.

Also comes with bikini top.

This thing has a ton of flex offroad!

Very nice looking Jeep, I am interested, but I must have over-looked your price, please pm me a price.
And before PP gets here, you may want to put the price in the description.

Like I said, I'm only thinking about selling it.

Would like to get $12,000 out of it. Scramblers are getting harder to find

if I recall correctly, he lives (d) in royal oak, and had been commuting back and forth to Cleveland fairly regularily. It appears he may have actually transferred there now?

I recall him listing his BMW when he bought his vette. With my job situation still sketchy, I seem to be perpetually stuck in "man that'd be nice to have mode"...

bump for the OP

"Thinking of selling" posts are supposed to go in the Pub, IIRC. Good luck with the possible sale.

Yeah everyone, I moved to Cleveland with the job. Been here for about a month, and there are NO places to wheel very close (wellsville is sorta close, but most of it is closed down). So it doesn't make a ton of sense to keep the thing.



I remembered that it also has a custom new flowmaster exhaust as of 7/1/06.

Man that thing is sweet. I have been wheeling with him most of the times he went and it works great. Everything was done well and looks great. The Stinger looks nice also, have not seen that. GOOD LUCK WITH THE SALE.
