no problem... 4.0 litre engine, 200,000 KILOMETERS and 12 inch lift kit. wheels are way to small as is does not look good with 12 inch lift kit and stock wheels.. any other info id be glad to give if needed... got no reason why the previous owner would not change wheel size looks awful as is but that can be changed... nice candy apple red paint with black trim and new sterio.

It sounds like they beat the ***** out of it and now trying to sell it. I would walk away. It has a 4.2L w/ carb (not so good) go for a 91' or newer with Fuel Injection. I would not buy this but if you have to have it than get every inch of it checked by a pro and not someone that thinks they know. This sounds like a bad deal but if a pro gives it the OK than it's up to you. Good luck and welcome to the Jeep world. 12 lift on stock????????????? The axles would be toast with 35 or bigger tires and 33 would be look stupid.

If he made it for a off-road challenge than he beat the *****, Hell and in-between. Do not walk, Run very fast. He has taken everything off that jeep he could to use it for the new rig. I would not waste my money on having someone look at it because I would have to say 12" lift+89' 4.2L+stock= Run away. I would hate to see you get ripped off and this is a rip off. I have been a kid before and have been taken and don't let it happen to you. Buy a 91' or newer and nothing less. You must have it check by someone and not someone that the seller will want you to go to.

86 Wrangler????


This Jeep story is getting stranger by the minute.
But since you've already taken the handle Offroadin_89_YJ I think you have to buy it now.
