$5767 WJ Fiasco
Own a part of recent history. The "$400 Jeep Fiasco" from the Grand Cherokee section. I'm completely fed up with this stinking piece of ****. I have receipts, all within the past month, for $5823. THe wife says "don't sell it, you've already replaced everything that could go wrong." I don't care if she is right. It is now personal.
Bilsteins, ADDCO, F.E.E. engine, I.R.O., Zone, MOPAR fluids, the list goes on and on and is included below, along with prices. everything a vehicle could possibly want I put into it. My budget was $3000. At $5767 I'm done. I'm asking nothing for the labor, shipping charges, research, duress, just want this ****er out of my driveway. It drives well enough to get the hell out of here. I'm in Buckeye, AZ.

111K miles on chassis.
1,300 miles on engine with 3 yr/100K mile warranty
Never had a lift on it.
Never driven offroad.
Up Country/Tow/Infinity/Sun roof/Leather/all of the good factory stuff except the pesky blend doors that the Limiteds got.

4. Clunks when braking or accelerating at very low speeds.

That's it. Everything else has been replaced.

I decided to dump another $1500 in it and beat on it until I feel like I got my money's worth out of it. Trust me, you don't want any part of it anyway.
