There are probably some good parts there, but if you've had to takers after several months, it's probably time to start dropping the price.
Love that monster truck look, so much in vogue. Has he driven to that car park or pushed it?

Sounds like ebaying the parts would get a good return and then sell the chassis cheap. Not sure about the engineering of it but may be worth a punt.

Puerto Rican Jeep?

Starting bid $18,000.00 With lots of chrome also... Looks like the winner has to pay for the shipping from Puerto Rico

i look at ebay almost everyday. mainly just because i like to see what other people have done to their cjs yjs and tjs (i like jeeps). most of them are over priced. have you noticed how many yuppy i call them jeeps there are? ok some people shouldnt be able to own a jeep. i may be one of those people for what i have done to mine but its not a real cj anyway. i can see having 20k in a jeep if you buy all the aftermarket stuff like the crazy overpriced 3 and 4k dana 60's and so on and then pay some one to build it. you can spend a ton on premade brakets if you really want. right? if you cant do most of the work or at least some of it its gonna get pricey. you gotta be crazy to put 20k into a jeep or to give it for one. i dont think a true jeeper is ever happy with a bought jeep. we all have to do our own thing to them. right? oh and the vette jeep. somebody needs to be shot..im just sayin

And here is the Master of Chrome himself.


It is unclear if those are stainless or chromed leaf springs but they sure are pretttttty. Face it, these are not the worst mods ever seen on a Jeep, nothing a bit of trail dust would not hide (OK maybe a lot of trail mud)

What a shame, because minus the chrome and wheels, this is a nice rig. It is fixable, although expensive.

That's quite a rig. I have never seen chromed brake, clutch, and accelerator pedals!

This Jeep is almost so over-the-top that it's in a class by itself. I have never seen a Jeep auction or for-sale posting where the sell showed the seat mounts.

I have to give the seller credit for his attention to detail all around (except for the one brown wire hanging out from under the dash), but the thing isn't done in the tradition of a Jeep. Not my style.

Not a bad looking Jeep to me. I love some chrome...not into this newer fad of blacking everything out, I think that looks like yesterday's leftover arse.

But that dude went wild with the chrome. I hope he works at a chrome shop or knows someone that does....otherwise, he has an absolute FORTUNE in all that chrome work. I agree that it needs a bit of toning down, and then it's a super-nice CJ.

I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

Hey at least you can assume you will never see it in the US. I doubt anyone would pay that price then pay the cost to ship it over here

Well, think of it this way: If that is exactly what you want in a Jeep, then that's a great deal, even if you had to ship it to the US, because you could never come close to building that Jeep for 18k.

That's why I don't understand people trying to claim "no Jeep is worth 10k" and such.
Sure they are. Lots of them are. Being a "Jeep person" doesn't automatically mean you can/should do everything yourself....some people can't or have nowhere to do that. So they have to pay someone.

If you can get a kickass Jeep that's 85-90% of your "ideal" Jeep for 10-15k, I say it's easily worth it. (assuming your ideal Jeep isn't a rusted out beater to thrash on the trails)

If someone has taken the time to break a vehicle down to the frame, and fixed everything....rust, etc, and done lots of mods, etc......how can anyone say their Jeep isn't worth 15-20k?

Look at Fatman's Jeep. Look at Keith460's Jeep. Either of those dudes could get 20k for theirs, easily, IMO.

Some folks here seem to think that no matter what you do to a Jeep, they're only worth so much. Not true.
They seem to think that if you buy a Jeep for say, 4k, and it's truly a 4k Jeep, that no matter what you bolt on it, it's still a 4k Jeep. Wrong, and they are proven wrong every day, when people buy those types of Jeeps for double that.

Hell, if old Camaros in nice shape are worth 20k now, why aren't nice Jeeps worth that? Takes just as much work to make the Jeep nice. That work is worth something....might not get every penny you spent, but if a guy goes out and spends 25k to duplicate Fatman's ride, you can't tell me that Jeep is only worth 8k, simply because "it's a Jeep".

Quite honestly, I think everyone here that has a nice Jeep that they've put time and effort like that into should be insulted, because to say a Jeep that has 25k or more in it, PLUS their labor, isn't worth anywhere near that much is essentially saying their labor was worth nothing.

I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

Attention to detail...I like how he didnt use a single grommett for the wires. The 2 guage power wire for the amp is just laying on the metal, can you say fire.

I think the biggest reason we often hear that expensive Jeeps aren't worth it is because most people aren't going to drop $10,000 or more for an extra vehicle, project, or an offroad rig.

Now, these same people might easily spend $10,000 over the span of of 5 years on a CJ without realizing the exact total, but they're not going to spend it at once to buy an already built (or semi-built) project.

It all comes down to how much money can you afford to spend at one time.
