Yes, it runs just fine. As it is perfectly driveable, the tags are current. It has brand new battery and 4 new tires with less than 100 miles on them.
If I'd not already had my own car at mom's house, I'd not have hesitated to drive it back to my house in Las Vegas (1100 miles).
As the house sale was final, yesterday, neither mom nor I are there any longer. Nor is the Jeep. Couldn't very well leave it parked in what is (now) someone else's garage .. at least without surrendering rights to whatever was left on the property to the new owners.
As a result, it had to go somewhere. It is now sitting, on consignment, at a car lot in Bremerton, Wa.
If your friends remain interested, I can supply the name, and location, of the lot and its owner's phone number.
