You did more than alright, you practically robbed them. I can't find one for less than a grand down here.

I posted mine for $900, and a guy drove about six hundred miles to get it. $600 is an absolute steal.

If I could find one for below $1,000 I'd have no problem with a 700 mile round trip to get it, because even with gas its still cheaper than the ones down here.

If you guys are willing to drive look at Florida. I see them on CL all the time for much less than 1k. Often $500 and $600.

I like how the hardtop changes up the look. Just when you're getting bored of it, it's spring time and the top goes off!

Hey! Me, too! Me, too! Me, too!

I sold mine for $750 with a crack in it and bad rear window struts. The guy drove about 30 miles out to my house and helped me get it out of the shed and on his Jeep. That was a sad day, because it basically sealed the deal to inevitably sell the Jeep.

I've got some control arm parts available if anyone is interested.

4x RH 1" shank 2.5" Currie joint bodies with either a Duroflex bushing or JJ installed
4x RH 1.25" shank 2.5" Currie joint bodies with either a Duroflex bushing or JJ installed

All Duroflex bushings and JJ balls have 9/16" bolt holes and are 2.625" wide so these will be used for either custom applications (4 link, 3 link, etc) or just lower arms, as factory TJ upper brackets use 7/16" bolts and are 2" wide.

All housings are RH threaded and will come with jam nuts. Price for loaded joint with either internal is $40/piece. PM me if you want them, first come first serve.

Also have plenty of extra JJ rebuild parts, such as bushing halves, center balls, washers, etc.

Do you know if the actual JJ housing is the same width as the MC duroflex housing? I don't know if MC is making the Duroflex bushings a bit wider for the JJ housings or not. I know the forged Duroflex housings I got were about 1/2" narrower than the R/C housings and I liked that.
