So yea i test drove this ZJ that i was considering buying,the starting price was 2500 i talked them down to 1300 the only thing wrong with it is that it wouldnt idle right they thought it was a BIG PROBLEM! it had a intake and the throttle body was gummed up! So i took it home and tryed it out! its stock i was fairly inpress and bought it! what do you think? i plan on adding a long arm lift to it soon and i will keep you updated
