its about $10,000 too high

for 16 k you want a slick nice paint job, noting that been rhino on the outside, nobody plates the bottom of the doors unless it been rusted out. there really nothing there, stock axles, stock motor, stock transfer case. its all big tires and some new bolts

Please don't waste 16k on this CJ. You can get a fully restored CJ for that price that has been done right.

In fact, for that kind of money: what you *want* is a "restored to factory" type restoration! None of this over-done bling magnate BS! Who knows who did the work on some of these things! Might be a crazy man! You want a Jeep from a crazy-man? He** No! Stick to as close to factory as possible!
