haven't seen it yet. most likely in fair shape - not expecting it to be rebuilt and cleaned up.

Remember that a Jeep is more than just the sum of the parts. In this case - you'll want to check the whole pretty carefully: If the PO's have created barbed-ZipTie minefields out of the wiring harness' or totally cluster :ed the body, frame or otherwise - you'll want to just walk away.

Are you wanting to purchase a good "Core" around which to build a project, or do you want to just hop in and drive?

Depending on which of those two core goals you have, you'll want to make choices in very different ways.

i recently purchased a nice cj7 with a 304, T176 (i think) and dana 20 that's in great shape except for a few leaks. I bought this one because there are 3 little kids running around and time is limited to spend on daddy toys. my goal is to find a drivetrain and rebuild it to my likings while at the same time having one to drive around.

I've seen that movie a time or two I'd strongly recommend sticking with the combo that is more "Stock" in nature. Having the Dana 60 out back may seem like a good thing, but that depends on the rest. I like the 300/T18 Granny combo myself
