Its missing the coolant reservoir cap which I still need to buy. The lift gates shocks need to be replaced. The interior lights we broken its like if he punched it I had to take them off and replace the screws ( I'm referring to the ceiling lights and compartments) I found condom wrappers under the back seat like a few of them. (Had to get rid of them otherwise it would have been a argument between me and my girl. I'm thinking the lower control arm needs replacing cause I hear rattling. Oh and the rear windshield wiper didnt work but I sprayed some wd40 on its now it works I started hearing a chirp so I'm thinking tensioner pulley needs replace. And I think the heater core needs replace cause its takes a good 10 minutes for it to kick in and finally the ac doesn't work which just might need to recharge
Not our fault that you obviously got taken. Should have pay more attention to detail before buying it.

Look at my previous post. It was for Dnuccio he said he would start a new thread about how the previous owner treat your jeep. I'm not complaining *****ing or anything like that if you read more of what I said. I referred this to as experience which I'm glad it wasn't in perfect condition.. Nor was I talking trash about high school kids. As you can see there are some on here that take great care of their jeeps.

I'm a junior in college now and have had my ZJ since my senior year of high school. I've always made a point to take very good care of it.

I touched mine trying to show it some love with zip ties, only broke it more. mine probably has at least 5 cracks in it, not counting the hunks broken off.

Oh and I'm a highschool jr, I keep good car of mine, though I'm not afraid to beat on it on the trails.

Ot: When you go hit a quick trail with a buddy, and are left wanting something harder cause you just powered right through it.
