help out with a 5spd zj

i found this on CL and i think im gonna pick it up.

http://southjersey.craigslist.org/cto/1126057365.html

BB in the front and springs in the back on 31's. Detroit locker in the rear. swapped in a 5spd and has been daily driving it. no carpet or bumpers. everything else is ok. needs slave cylinder. thats the only known problem. recently rebuilt tranny. 4.0 motor.

he said he would take 500 for it. im thinking i would fix it up and bedline the interior. wheel it for a bit then sell it at the end of the summer unless i fall in love with it.


any reason i shouldnt get it?

Sounds like a good deal to me, and a 5 speed ZJ is very cool.

I say go for it.

BTW, Detroit Lockers are around $500 alone. If I had the money and were closer I would probably pick it up for myself and make it a wheeler.
