Bought this new project about a month ago, It was shyt totaled in 2010 and fixed by the original owner .In my opinion was pretty poorly put back together ... This is Y I only gave 9k for a 06 lj with 64k miles on it .Here is what it looked like the day we bought it .. I spent a evening going over it , It rode awful and had a bad control arm creek, Got to figure that stuff out before I drive it much , The previous owner also gave me pro comp 4" lift that was on the Jeep , I will probably try those springs and start the build from here

EXCELLENT start! Even if it was totaled and semi-fixed not a bad price you paid.

Great looking LJ, I remember seeing this for sale on a couple different sites. You have definitely improved it 100%.
