Today i installed the front driveshaft and adjusted the shift linkage on my 97 ZJ after doing the 242 swap, put a few plastic interior panels back on, vacuumed it, and put it at the curb with a for sale sign on it.

Only 10000 mile difference between it and the one local that wants $5000, the suspension upgrades I don't want as I have my own.

It's somewhat therapeutic to sit in the garage, listen to music, and turn bolts by hand.

The link that you posted was for you to add or edit your post not the link for the sale itself

It's not mint, it's still a 15 year old Jeep but it's a nice ZJ. Clean enough to enjoy driving on the street but not so clean that you dont want to wheel it. Right in the middle which to me is right where it should be.

Was told about a "1998 Grand Cherokee with a 360 in it" today.

He said "It's got rusty rockers and it doesn't shift right unless you turn off the overdrive. The interior is trashed cuz the people that owned it last were disgusting PIGS, and I don't have the title for it. I want it outta my damn yard ASAP. $300 takes it. If you can sell it for more, you can keep the extra, all I care about is the $300 and an empty parking spot in my driveway."
I'm going to look at it tomorrow after work... in the dark...
I'm thinking "How the hell can I scoop up $300??...... PARTS RIG!!!!!!"

The 5.9 grill and hood louvers are worth $250-$300 alone if they are in clean condition. Id be all over that thing.
