Looks rusty, but scrap value is more than what he's asking. Can't hurt.

Holy rustola. That thing may fall apart before you ever get it on a trailer. But ya, you could easily get that back if you would part it out and what not.

re-check the trac bar... control arms are what caused mine... it was all of it... I threw on ZJ steering, new trac bar... still got it... tightened up the axle mount bushing... but still getting it a little has to be control arms.
