Howdy all, my nephew just bought a kaiser jeep with a rust free frame for 1000 bucks and it got me wondering, who here got the best deal for their jeep? I bought mine for 3000 and it wasn't even running, i would post pics but don't have a camera anymore lol. Anywho, thought it would be neat if you post a pic and condition of your jeep as well as price and see who got the best bargain.
sorry if its a repost, searched but didn't find anything
Paid 5K for mine about a year ago in San Antonio TX. Probably got ripped off, but I love the damn thing. It's worth way more to me than the 5K. It's got rusty floor pans and leaks from every place possible (working on that this weekend). I have to keep 2 drip pans under it all the time. The paint sucks! And the engine is weak as cat piss (78 304 150HP). Of course I have huge plans to fix it up that will probably never happen, but it is a fun hobby and I wouldn't trade it for a brand new Corvette. Picking up a 360 next week! I'm like a kid at Christmas. Here are some pics.
74 year old guy wanted it off his property. 250 miles away from my house he was selling the ranch. I would say about 100$ in fuel 50$ to get a trailer brake controller and 7 pin plug, oh yea a 60$ power steering bump after i ruined it in my truck from backing up with a 6k lb trailer and full lock over a curb . 210$ total for a seized cj7 with hard top and doors + soft top and doors.
Best deal is realive to when you got it. Bought my first '79 CJ with a 304 and 30k miles in '84 for $1700. Bought an '85 Larado in '90 for $3000 dumped over $5k into it and watched it rot in front of my eyes and after swapping the high dollar parts, sold it for a large bottle of Jaeger 9 years ago. My current '85 CJ had 75k; no rust (never driven in the winter and most of the miles were put on behind a motorhome) and I paid $3500. It runs better than ever; thanks to the guy posting above me it has all my Larado parts and I wouldn't part with it for a small fortune.

Gave $1500 for this. There was 2 th400's laying in the back one rebuilt one for a q-trac and a burnt up partially disassembled one for a Dana 20. And a Dana 20 t case. Swapped the good guts onto the shaft for the Dana and bolted it in
I'm in it for about $2200 now

$65 to xfer the title from my dad to me. Technically it was to be a gift to my daughter, who now wants a car with AC. Sheesh, kids these days. I drove it all over Texas when I was a teen with a crappy radio and damn happy that I had it. She said that she will drive it once I get it fixed up though.
