Ha, funny, I was just looking at this the other day.

Not even close. It is very clean, lots of detailing and paint. But as others have said, stock gears, no lockers, no skids, chorme diff covers?, 6 inch drop pitman?, no rock sliders, no SYE, no CV shaft, etc etc. He pulled the engine to paint it, but didn't rebuild it or even freshen up the top end, with 154K ???
Looks like the ultimate mall crawler. Although I wish my engine compartment looked that nice.
2001 XJ RE 5.5 ED w/T&T Y-link longarm, 37" MTR's, D44/D60, ARB's, Rubicon Tcase, and all the usual junk.
Ya, I never said it was built properly, but as an exercise in paint and prep, it looks amazing.
Yep, very clean.
As far as the "never been offroad" that probably includes the majority of Jeeps.
I think of it as: they take the depreciation, and I take the mint Jeep in 15 years when it's worth about nothing.

Wow, the first thing I'd do was take the blocks and spacers out, throw an SYE in there, and fix the steering. Otherwise it'd make a great show truck. I wouldn't really want to wheel it after all the work this guy has done.
