Now question is do you guys think its worth it? Obviously you haven't seen it or driven it, but how are the orvis editions? Basically all I would to do for my end is some demolition work/clean up in his basement and do a small roof repair on his porch as well replace a few rotten boards on his porch... 2 days of work or so... Going to look at the truck and his house this weekend...
With that rust I wouldn't pay over 1200 for it, but for a couple of days worth of work? In a heartbeat. Time is money, but if you don't want to spend the money, ill spend the time anyday.

Changing spark plug wires and thought I was just pulling off the loom supports and the rear valve cover stud fell out into my hand. Guess I found that oil leak. (Wasn't looking too hard)

Got my 93-95 cargo cover to work in my 96. Alittle ghetto but all is well and .80 later. Also joined the vice grip/ clamp club to hold my broken rear glass hatch open. Very nice not having to use my head to hold the glass open anymore.

I ripped off the rattling turbo muffler with a turndown and went back to a trusty glasspack with a full tailpipe. It's way quieter, won't rust the bottom of the Jeep from exhaus moisture, and won't get torn off on rocks.
