Even my unmounted spare is a pig lol. They aren't light, but I love them. I think you'll enjoy them.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

True for the majority of Moab with 'slickrock'. However, Pritchett Canyon I was lacking lug spacing to grab the jagged rocks on waterfall-type climbs.

And yes, no doubt the Redbird clay would be chewed up with these 'Bulls. Kind of ironic, don't you think... They call them "Rockers" but don't have the sidewall flex of other tires, and yet really shine in the nasty mud

The time has come...

This is it guys! I'm headed to EJS in two days, and putting the Green Bean up for sale as of today. I've got a new project coming up and don't have room (nor the funds) for both. We'll be traveling across I-70 all the way to Utah and would be willing to deliver along the route on Saturday 4/7 for those of you western jeepers. Or if you're going to be at EJS, PM me and we can meet up.

Just as a refresher, here's the final specs and some parting shots:
General Info
1997 Wrangler with newer soft top and side windows
Cummins B3.3T 4cyl diesel
Billet 6061 T6 adapter
NSG370 6spd
NV231 with Mega-short SYE
Ford 8.8 Rear/Detroit/4.10
Rubi 44 front/tube seals/TEN shafts
Suspension
Rear BTF leaf spring kit with OME Medium XJ springs + one
Front radius arm setup - RE arms, Poly bracketry, AEV 3" springs
Bilstein 5125 12" 255/70 all four corners
Front Antirock swaybar
37x12.50x15 PB Rocker Radials on ORO powdercoated locks
Body
Genright Hiline front fenders
Genright full corner armor with custom stretch tubes
Genright extended sliders
Poison Spyder Competition cage
Sniper Fab front bumper
Homebuilt windshield frame armor
New windshield frame painted to match Sept '11
BTF rear bumper
Interior
Full set of Igee leather seat covers
Raptor lined interior
Uniden CB (new Fall 2011)
Autometer electronic tachometer
Extras
Warn 9500Hsi
Custom rear swing-away tire carrier with Hi-lift, body mounted
RCI 2161A fuel cell frenched between rails
Carter high flow lift pump
Taurus electric fan with Delta Controls fan controller
Hella vacuum pump with SSBC control
Hi-lift jack
Viair 400c Constant duty on-board air system

I have the matching spare PBR on matching beadlock, but it will only be good for a trail spare as it has a large boot in the sidewall and runs a tube. The winch and fairlead cover doesn't come in the deal... only thing I'm keeping!

There are three things that need fixed to make the Jeep perfect...
1.) The radio works fine, but the front speakers are blown and obviously the soundbar is gone.
2.) The blower motor for the heater gave out so there's currently no heat. I have a replacement motor included with the sale.
3.) It's been wheeled but as other IndyORVer's will tell you, I'm quite particular about my vehicles. Any body damage/scratches have been touched up, but there's a spot on the side armor that bothers me. If I was keeping it I would pull that armor piece and have it glazed and sprayed, but that's me.

Asking price is $14,500 but I've invested almost $25k in the past two years. Jeep is located in Indianapolis for you locals.

The sidewalls flex just fine once you break them in. My 35's had no issues at all.

But I must be crazy. I've clearly never had any problems with them lol.

You'll enjoy your next project too. Sad to see this one go though.

This thing is put together so cleanly it's crazy. I would have bought this over my current TJ in a heartbeat (felt a little guilty saying that... not going to lie)

I don't know how you guys do it. It breaks my heart when you guys post these, literally famous rigs up for sale. Hope it goes to as good an owner as it has now.

You have no idea. I've never struggled so much with the decision to sell a Jeep, and I've built and sold 5 so far! You would think I'd get used to it.

Ugggh. Thanks for reminding me of how poor an investment this Jeep hobby is

I would take this one, over the new project any day. Or for the record. Both my projects.

I know that really helps Smoke.

Again have fun in MOAB. You will probably come home light trailer and Fat pockets....
