How much is he asking?

So far it's vehicle that is way under powered with 36" tires and 3.73's.Trans might feel fine but that doesn't mean the added stress of trying to move those meats around hasn't done a number on the clutch bands in the trans.It might feel strong now but who knows you get it out on a trail and the next thing you know you are stranded because the trans went south.Second it has a Skycrapper lift ,and the older one at that.That lift sucks hard.The the front truss/craddle comes loose none stop.The hiems that come with the lift are junk.Since its all hiems the control arms tend to transmit a lot of road vibration into the body/chassis.I do how ever like thier spring rate for the 8" coil,they worked well for me.

The rest of it doesn't sound to bad but really with lift being the high dollar item on the rig what are you saving by buying it.You would wind up replacing most of it which would leave you with a prebeat Cherokee with some items like shock,tires,and springs.

So you have to ask yourself a question do you feel like buying somebody else mistake?
