That was my FIRST thought....
He said the hood doesn't have louvers... I'm thinking either a crash victim, or a remotely possible 5.9L transplant....
Gotta check it out tomorrow and see, I suppose....

Anyone know the VIN engine code for the 5.9L??

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!!!!!!"

That's a good looking rig.

I feel the same about mine. Got some dings and scratches so it doesn't bother me when more happen but the paint still shines up and looks pretty good with a fresh coat of wax

The cup holders just look wrong without it. You can tell something's missing. Every ZJ should have had one of these.
