They are asking 7k I told him I will give them 4k
They also told me that the PO has re-geared it, put lockers, lift kit, "custom exhaust".. once again I laughed. then went to explaining that I want to open up both diffs and look for myself they told me "NO" so I told them I'm not paying for something I can't see. Also explained to them how is it lifted (stock shocks/ no spacers). Told me that the hood vents were "custom made". I pulled up pictures of niners for him as well as the user manual to show that they came with the ZJ. So waiting for a call to see what can happen

Hopefully they don't have no pride and just admit defeat. That's too bad they're trying to BS you that bad. If they won't let you open it up, make sure it says somewhere on the receipt that you're getting lockers (the kind in the axle, not a box with a padlock in the cargo compartment). 7k? Jeez

They countered at 5950$ I told them 4k out the door take it or leave it.

Reassembled most of the engine. Just gotta finish the socket removal from the exhaust, reassemble the exhaust, put the exhaust manifolds on and change the oil, and she should be ready to rock.

Wheeled it!

Ran Red Cone and Webster Pass here in CO today.

Looks like the hot lead for my starter is about done. Couldn't start it today unless we jumped the hot lead of the solenoid to the battery :
High altitude stall too after steep descents. I'll start out with a tuneup. I haven't done a cap/rotor on the Heep in several years. I'm betting it's overdue.

Pics of the wire? Nahh...too dark and dirty

Surprisingly, we only had 15 pics total for today. That's very irregular. None of mine.

In my defense, I did spend the whole time fighting to keep the Heep from stalling, and remembering not to shut it down for fear of not starting back up again.

That's Colorado 5.9 and BigDaveZJ in front of me, the track up Red Cone to the right.

Splashed a lot today, floated, then stalled out furring this little puddle.

Ended up being the fuel pump harness disconnected. Plugged back together and viola!!!

Changed out battery terminals on both 4.0 and 5.9, much happier. If you're on stock wiring and haven't done so, it's time to clean up the wiring. Also got the 4.0 battery secured finally. Got driver's side cladding on the 5.9 done after scavenging the cladding retainers from a JY run on Saturday morning. Scored some other random little stuff I'll put in the classifieds. Gonna go buy headliner fabric at Jo-Ann's since they had a 50% coupon in the paper for any one item this weekend.

Driving home, hit some sharp speed bumps and heard a loud "clacking" sound... only when it hits a bump quick, maybe blown out shock?... hoping not a bad motor mount although I would think I would see/feel vibration and motor shaking..
