Goshen Indiana 46528

2001 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. 4.0, Auto, 4x4, Cruise, AC, CD, 2” spacer lift, Rubicon wheels, New Marked Designs rock sliders.

212k miles but “new” motor just swapped in. Axles changed at 114k.

I bought this 7ish years ago with suspension damage out of Rhode Island(no salt). I fixed her all up and send her to a buddy, he gave to his son who neglected it and blew the motor. Then went to another buddy who has got it back on the road again. There are pictures of the numerous stages the Jeep has been through.

In short the Jeep runs, drives, shifts, stops, makes music, and goes toot toot. The Jeep is rough, I won’t tip toe around it, but there is a lot of meat on the bones. Great project!

Frame is great! Tub is pretty well solid. Good new heart.

Said buddy has $3500 in this thing and won’t take a dime less. If it doesn’t sell it doesn’t sell. Will reduce $300 if you bring your own wheels and tires and I keep the rubes. No trades.

Alright, here are some more goodies.

After I rebuilt the thing - youll see pics here, it had a rebuilt title. It then went to Michigan and got retitled and went "green"? I believe that to mean it's "clear" in Michigan, but maybe someone can comment.

Various states here. Youll see what it looked like when I got it, what it looked like when I was done with it, what it looked like when I picked it up after my buddies son killed it.

Depending on how the pre-Michigan title was marked as rebuilt, the SoS agent could have overlooked it. For example, Kentucky has an inconspicuous checkbox on the back of the title for marking salvage, rebuilt, or other. It blends in with the other fine print on the page. Run a Carfax report and you'll likely see a "warning- possible title washing" or something to that effect.

Each one(rebuilt Indiana) I have sold to Michigan it has always went green, so I don't know.

I am happy to blot out the name, but the title is definitely green in color. In the brand/legend, it doesn't say rebuilt or salvage or anything..

Ok, so honestly I forgot about the Jeep being for sale. It has just been sitting in my buddies shop getting worked on here and there driven very little. The Jeep is now back out at my house and going back up on CL. New final price is $3500.
