1997 TJ 37's, 3/4 ton axles, V8 $20k obo
I'm listing this for my brother mine. Mechanically speaking, this Jeep has about 5000 miles on the new axles and suspension. The motor is out of a 99 WJ and has 98xxx miles on it. This Jeep just received a Utah inspection that is good for 60 days as a small incentive for the Utah buyers. My brother is into this a lot more than $20k. Price is OBO. Come look at this and take it home. Nothing like a V8 TJ to put a big fat grin on your face!
The axles and suspension are all new as of this summer, the motor swap has been professionally wired by a WYOTECH graduate and will pass a standard emission test. All emission systems are functional! The OBD port is functional and was invaluable to debug the Jeep to make everything work right after the swap. This jeep doesn't have any weird quirks post engine swap like many Jeeps I have driven do. I have absolutely loved this project, but school is expensive and its time to see her go. Hopefully I will be able to get another Jeep soon
I fully understand the jeep thing, lots of time and money has been invested in this rig, and I only hope to get a small portion out of it. Performs amazingly on and off road. Gets surprisingly good gas mileage (20mpg highway and I have gotten 26-27 down to Moab from SL).

I have a very busy schedule, so text message will work best for me, but if needed feel free to call or email anytime with questions. This has been a fantastic Jeep. I have put a lot of work into this to make it as good as it can. This Jeep will cruise down the road at 100+ mph if you want to. The suspension is very predictable and I have no problems throwing the keys to a 'non' Jeeper.
I'm not exactly sure how to post pics on here, so click the link to see some pics. It is a gorgeous Jeep. Someone is going to be very happy!
