Pulled one from the junkyard and never installed it, so yeah it's yours man. Also, that gold nut on the passenger fuse box, works on that stud for the airhat. Feel free to PM with a list of stuff. Motor and tranny is getting pulled this weekend.

Really haven't decided yet man. She protected me well, but tipped wayyyy too easy. I wouldn't mind making an investment into a diesel...

You know you drive a zj when your dad's civic gets stuck in the road with 6+ inches of snow 20 feet from your house and you know the zj will pull it out in a minute but he won't let you...

When you score a factory 5sp for cheap due to the PO attempted for almost 2 years to get it running again. Only for the new owner (me) to trailer it home, put a new Mopar pcm in it, and have it fire right up.

Pretty sure the dude was calling me all kinds of names when I called him 2 days later and let him listen to it sing

No, it's an automatic. Looks like it might have had manual windows at one point, though.

Shame. I got curious and did a nationwide search of manual ZJ's on autotrader, only found the one:

That's really nice looking, I love the center console and shifter. It looks a million times better than the shifter in my XJ
