Maybe a 3" lift, he is running 32"s. But, $4500 for a 99 with 138k miles? Another case of someone putting more money into it than its worth and then trying to recoup all that money when selling it. Not gonna happen. Good luck to the seller.

It's a 2" BB type spacer lift. Says so in the ad. How he runs 255/75/17 on that setup is beyond me. Must not trail it disco'd.

Yep, it should be priced at $2,500-3k to sell.

But don't forget, in the ads he added those decals and camo'd the interior... those bump up the price....

"southern comfort decal-$30 fox decal-$15 Nautical decals-$10 4brake calipers-$120 Mossy oak floor mats-$30 real tree steering wheel-$20"

You do know that before the war. Willy's were 2wd.

My GC is my 3rd jeep and my first 2wd one...saved $2k and get better gas mileage. In the 11yrs that we've owned it I can only count 3 times I wish I had the ability to shift into 4wd.

I bought the GC brand new off the lot with 3 miles on it at the Jeep dealer in Bayridge Brooklyn.

If it was really snowing enough that I'd need to put it into 4wd then NYPD wouldn't let you go anywhere anyway.

Now we're in Texas and have never needed it. It's 98 degrees outside and the last time it snowed in Houston was 3 yrs ago, less than a dusting, and the city shut down.

He/l, put a locker on the a$$ end and you can do almost anything.

Fair comment and not a bad argument....depends how you use it......im willing to bet that a large percentage of the AT tired, lifted, expedition equipped WJ,s on here are built for the image and rarely if ever leave the tarmac. So why not run a 2wd?.....although I doubt much , if any, fuel will be saved.

Just like to state for the record that although my Jeep is a mild spec compared to lots on here, it is used as the good lord intended a Jeep to be used...and I NEED 4wd where I get the old girl to go! It's Great Britain and its usually muddy because its always pIssIng with rain!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!
