2004 Jeep Willys Edition TJ
Last shot posting here before going to Ebay. I'm trying not to do that, so if you're interested please contact me sooner than later.
This has been more than just my daily driver, she's been a member of the family. It took a looong time for my wife to come to terms with letting her go (I still don't think she has, she's going to cry like a baby when the time comes...), I'd really like a Jeep enthusiast to take her home and appreciate her. Or maybe you need a reliable car for your college-bound kid that you'd feel good about him or her driving in bad weather.
Either way, she's in great shape with approx 136,000 miles. Engine has seen only Mobile 1 since I bought her new here in NJ in 2004. Inspection is good until 4/2014. She has been babied her entire life - not lifted or modded in any way and never off roaded. Moss Green with original green soft top (in great shape) and green rims. I installed neoprene seat covers the first week I owned her, so the camo-patterned seats underneath are in great shape. I pulled the rear seats out immediately after I got it home and stored them in my climate controlled garage, with matching neoprene seat covers. The hood star was replaced about two months ago with another that is a little larger than the original (I always thought the stock one was a little too small anyway). The rest of the decals look great, and I have several other sheets of stars, etc, that will go with it. Brakes were just completely rebuilt less than 1,000 miles ago ($1200) and the "glass" in the rear window has been replaced with material I purchased from BD company - the same stuff Bestop uses. A local sailmaker installed it - looks great and is crystal, crystal clear (check out the picture of the rear seats to see the view out of the rear window. No faded/cloudy obstructed view here). New Falken tires installed last week ($500), with less than 100 miles, plus a fresh Mobile 1 oil change done just today ($100). I had my mechanic take a look over her and the only thing he could see that might need to be replaced DOWN THE ROAD is a tie rod end. He said the bushings are all tight and feel good. THIS JEEP NEEDS NOTHING!! IT IS READY TO DRIVE RIGHT NOW!!
Here is a list of everything I know of that does not work 100%:
1) The driver side door is difficult to lock from the inside. No problem using the key.
2) As of about 3 months ago, the fog lights sometimes come on by themselves. If I wiggle the blinker stalk, they go off. I pulled the fuse so they won't turn themselves on and drain the battery. I'd imagine replacing the blinker stalk would fix that, but since I never used the fog lights anyway, it didn't bother me.
3) The rear gate is sticky to open. Greasing the hinges would fix that. There is also a crack in the paint below the bottom hinge of the gate (see pic). That is the only major flaw I can find in the body (apart from the occasional scratch, there are *no* other flaws in the body).
There is a new Alpine stereo installed, with bluetooth smartphone connectivity. It works with a separate mic and is great around town. It works ok on the highway, but road noise is a factor. I replaced the subwoofer with an after market upgrade, and it sounds great (for me, but I'm old. You might want to bring it to a real stereo shop if you want thumping-subwoofer bass). I'm pretty sure I have the stock stereo somewhere, in case you want that for whatever reason. There is also an XM cradle installed as well as an antenna.
I have most service records, paperwork and even the original window sticker.
The paint still shines nicely, the metal flake sparkles in the sunlight.
That's about all I can think of - please contact me with any other questions or picture requests you may have.
