hahah yeah, some lady had it before me and drove it into a ditch, then I guess drove it around for awhile after until her LCA completely broke and the shop she had it at quoted everything at 5000 so she sold it to me for 600.

It looks like it's in rough shape, but you can't go wrong for $600.

haha yeah 600 bucks, 2000 TJ, 102k, only problem is the front axle(which I have a HP30 from my yj) that will be going in and fenders, which I chopped

It came with full and half doors, hard and soft top which I could sell just that for so much more.

Some other stuff it came with was sub, amp, pioneer headunit and soundbar.

What a deal. A BB and 33s sounds legit.

Seems like it would be a lot easier to find a different HP that has the correct brackets.
