Found this the other day, 98 TJ - $11,000...http://frederick.craigslist.org/cto/3660385244.html

Below is from the description:

-For you 'Motorheads' this is the last year that Jeep made a wrangler with an Inline 6-cylinder engine. For you non-'Motorheads', this is the more preferred styled engine body as it lends itself to superior performance, mileage, and (most importantly) durability over its V6 cousin.

I'm not a Jeep expert...but I'm pretty sure 98 wasn't the last year for the 4.0 engine.

I'm also pretty sure that Rubicon's weren't made in 98.....

I wanna say this was an attempt at a scam....

Like my GrandPappy said, only way to learn is to do it yourself. Even if you break some things along the way.

-Tires: 33-inch Bajas. These tires alone cost me $2,000. There is still 75-80% tread left on them so they still have plenty of life. (also included: Spare tire on back of Jeep)

Both obvious lies, lol.

Lmao who knows. No one could put the groceries in. I love how tiny tires and stock suspension only knocks $2000 off the price.

That's not a terrible price...unrestored with a good frame, rust free steel body, and operational drivetrain, it will pull near $7,000

Not at all. It would be awesome if it was stock, or tastefully modded. But this is just too much. And his description is hilarious.

White shocks and what appears to be stock leafs, I would never buy that thing. Looks like it was done poorly.
