I did get upset for a while about this, however just figure they are holding the steering wheel for dear life in hopes to get home. The finger comment gave me a laugh though! If you see a stock white ZJ in the Roanoke area, get ready for the finger, I might just adopt this philosophy. Still have yet to get the money to do any mods, such is married life.

1996 ZJ - That 2nd Oxygen sensor, yeah some serious butt connectors and heat shrink there, how is that for off road modification! - Still stock.

This has been every vehicle I owned, however happened the other morning. When you are at a traffic light and hear a weird noise, turn the engine off to make sure it is not your vehicle...thankfully it was not mine.

When you get better mpg just by filling up the tires with air, and it stopps pulling to the right.
Had 1bar,s pressure in the right front and between 2,5 and 3 in the rest, no wonder that it wanted to go to the right everytime i let go of the steeringwheel.
And mpg went up when it started to roll easyier on the road...

I got around .1 MPG better with my E3s. Not great but every little bit helps. Thanks for reminding me to check my tire pressures though.

I'd be hesitant. Actual mileage shows 116k+ miles. It maybe a minor oversight but could be trying to hide more.

I fell for that... Guy said the ZJ I bought had 104k...had 108k when I bought it. Turns out the BCM has been swapped, motor is from a JY (which blew 3 days later.) and my VC is gone at 115k. When I took it to the Dealer, they put my mileage down as 198k....so I have no idea what my real mileage is.

the rear bumper cover is a different shade of white than the rest of the jeep, could've been wrecked at some point

Don't do it. I looked at that one today. It's half to pieces, man. They took the front driveshaft out, the front axle is making a terrible noise, NONE of the elctronics work (gauges, power windows, lights), the battery is leaking profusely, the tires are too bald for me to even want to winch it onto a trailer, the interior is trashed, and the body is even worse. The folks selling it are nice enough, and the property it's on is almost picturesque, but it is NOT worth its weight in scrap.

The fender is pushed way out because it blew a tire at freeway speeds and that just destroyed the fender. There's also some rust and mismatched body components at the rear and none of the locks work for some reason. The transmission was also acting funny.

It still makes a nice sound, and it can still burn up bald tires, but it's not even any good as a powertrain mule with the axles, t-case, and transmission in need of work. I passed on it and so should you.
