New to here, not new to the Jeep life. Just so I don't have to type it out again, Jeep and it's mods are in profile. I don't think I missed anything except for the Husky floor matts haha.

Thanks. Yah, I got lucky with this one. Alberta vehicle its whole life. So Minimal salt. 90% of the bolts and screws I've had to touch all came out easy and intact. Minus a few on the rear fender flares. Had 149k km, first owned by a woman that ordered it with the 3.73 lsd and 30" tire group and two tops. The 2nd owner was a yoga/life coach lady. And they both had it serviced at the same shop. There was shiny paint underneath still. Minimal rust, no holes. Hardly any dirt on the transfer case skid. I don't think it ever even saw a dirt road lol.

Welcome!

wish I could find a TJ that solid and nice in Canada lol

The only things I had to "fix" were the passenger side axle/u-joint that I was told about when we bought it. Radiator last Oct and the OEM clutch a week ago. Normal wear and tear items that would have been due as far as I'm concerned.

Over here in Ontario non rusty anything doesn't exist. Great looking jeep.
Thanks. Having lived in Kitchener-Waterloo, Elmira, London, Ottawa and 12 years in Petawawa, I'm all too familiar with the perils of finding a quality rust free vehicle. I think the ONLY rust free vehicles I've ever owned in Ontario were motorcycles hahaha.

Incredible! Rust free anything is rare. Even in Alberta, things rust. One of my service trucks was from Alberta and still needed new box sides after 12yrs.

You did well! Keep it clean :)
Ouch, yah. Had a couple trucks like that here too.

Thanks, I actually washed it today. Even managed to flush out the frame. Looked like I filled it with chocolate milk with all the grit coming out. Something satisfying about a clean Jeep in the middle of winter.
