Everything is salted up in New England- there's still salt on the roads now!
Anyway, I found an 85 laredo- 135k, everything is original, as far as the owner knows- clutch, tranny, axles, engine. he's had it 5 years, and there is minimal rust on it. from what i saw, there is no rust on the frame, just a little on the gate. body work was done to remove any rust on the body, and it was primered (some sanding and grinding will be needed before a professional paint job). tub is line-x'd. only fiberglass is the windshield. full doors with the rust holes at the bottom of the pillar, but it was cleaned and spray painted to prevent further rust. they are still solid, but obviously will need to be patched. original hardtop in great condition, and a tiger top with full doors. aftermarket rear bumper, 31" BFG's, and greasable shackles. no lift. original rims. rear main seal has a leak. aluminum valve cover, recent brake job. routine maintenance. seats are in great condition. the worst thing is the steering- i was told that it probably needs a new steering bracket.
now if you were selling this, what would you expect to get? I will find out tomorrow if I am getting it, and then i'll post the price, but i want to see what you guys thought first- remember, i'm in a rust state, so you usually only find something without rust at a jeep dealer-
