1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Buggy - Orvis Edition (or used to be at least)
This is a clean, one-owner, always garaged, drives like new, never been offroad, only highway miles, 52 mpg (better than Prius) Jeep Grand Cherokee........okay, in all seriousness though, this is none of the above, has been well used and has the scars to prove it.

The platform of this is a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee (ZJ) running full-width one-ton axles with 39” sticky tires on beadlocks and a very low center of gravity making it extremely stable. This rig can go anywhere. I competed with it in the Old School Rock Crawl and have taken 1st and 2nd place. This is registered as an OHV as it is obviously not street legal in Utah. With the new street-legal OHV law, you should be able to go that route with relatively minor work (wiring up a horn, etc.).

I would love to keep this thing, but I've decided to move on to a new project and need to sell this to fund it. Now for some specs. Good chance I'll leave something out because I have done so much to this over the 8 years I've owned it. I've put more time and money into this than I even care to add-up and it's gone through many changes to get to where it is.

Engine - 5.2L V8 (128k miles)

Overall this has been an incredible rig for the past 8 years that I have owned it. Not only will you turn heads wheeling in a grocery getter/soccer mom SUV, but I've built this rig to be very capable and competitive against even full tube buggies.

The trailer is available as well. It is a Big Bubba's 16' x 8' rated for 14k flat-deck and has new tires with about 1,500 miles on them. Very heavy duty. It is pintle hitch and I will throw the hitch for it in as well. It tows extremely well.

Jeep only - $8,500
Trailer only - $3,750
Both - $11,500

I have the titles for both the Jeep and the Trailer.

If you have any questions you can email me or feel free to call/text. I will be down in Moab with this rig over Memorial Weekend so if you are interested and would like to check it out in action let me know.

More pictures can be found uploaded to KSL.
