Well my grand parents bought this jeep brand new off the show room floor unfortunately they didn't opt for the 4x4 model because they didn't feel like they needed it(that'll change in the near future). To this day both of my grandparents swear it was the best vehicle they ever owned but unfortunately in 2009 my grandfather filled the radiator up with water and never added antifreeze to it so that winter it blew the head so my grandparents decided to buy a smaller car and let the jeep sit. So when I turned 16 they gave it to me! Had the head rebuilt and resurface put it back on and sure enough it was running like a champ. After a year of owning it my engine decided to melt the pistons due to the fact that my fan relay went bad and I was sitting in a parking lot not paying attention to my gauges or the jeep and it blew the side tank off of the radiator. Since I didn't have the money for a tow truck and I was told it couldn't sit in the parking lot over night I had to drive it the 5 miles to my house(I know not the best move)so $1500 some forged rods and pistons later and some long nights it was running better than ever. I have only done some minor mods like painting my wheels and cladding, some Beefier tires, sound system, cb and pay speaker and exhaust but i have big plans for my granny mobile!!!

So last month I bought a parts jeep the main reason I bought it was for the axles for my 4x4 conversion but when I went to look at it I found out what a great deal I was getting the body was almost perfect and the interior was a 10 out of 10 with heated seats and the best part of it all was I only paid $200 for it!!!(I'm trying to part out the rest of it I have taken off the right front fender seats ,both axles, front bumper, door panels, guage cluster, and head lights. Pm for details)
