Fortunately my husband is a mechanic but not a "body" man. (It's full of rust) I'm hoping to learn everything about this Jeep through this forum since we are basically clueless. LOL!
The good news is that it came with a hard top, bikini top, set of full doors and a set of half doors. Hoping those are at least worth what she paid for this Jeep. ($3,000) We need lots and lots of parts and pieces though.
Wish us luck and I'll keep checking in with the forum. Nice to meet you all!
Sorry you feel ripped off . Why didn't your husband go with her when she bought it.? Rust is an issue with jeeps if not wash after wheeling and since jeeps were made for mudding you have be religious about keeping it clean especially in the winter months. It good thing fixing rust on jeep don't hurt the resale value . Body work on older jeeps is almost always a given so if you are going to sell it ask what you paid some one will be happy with it I wish you best of luck and remember jeeping is a way of life so get out and jeep it up
