I buy and sell 4X4 oil/gas fleet trucks and ship them all over the world. Some of the local dealers-mechanics-wholsalers I work with get older 4x4 trade ins that they are not willing to sell or finance on their lot because of age, miles, modifications, lift kits etc. This 1972 Jeep Commando belongs to a mechanic friend of mine, he took it in trade for payment and then started fixing it up. I have own and have owned a lot of vintage 4x4s, I know how they drive and can judge a good one from a bad one. If you are not familiar with vintage 4x4 vehicles that have been modified such as this I urge you to educate yourself before bidding. If you are local I urge you to inspect this Jeep in person, sold as is where is...    Good luck and happy bidding!!!!

I am located in Durango Colorado, I will consider helping with delivery within 100 miles for .85 a mile after the Jeep is paid for in full.

The Good Stuff:

Here's what I know so far, this old rig starts, runs and drives pretty darn good for being so big and modified. Under the hood is an excellent running 258 6 cylinder engine, is very dry, super clean, no leaks that I see, valve cover has been resealed, has a Weber carb, a wrapped Hedman header, clean custom exhaust with a Flowmaster Muffler (it sounds great) 4 speed trans, twin stick transfer case, clutch is good, brakes are decent, steering is pretty tight, windshield wipers work, fan motor under the dash works, all gauges work, overall very mechanically sound. Has custom Alcan springs, a SPOA lift, custom 6 point cage welded to the frame, some kind of aggressive rear locker (unsure of front) marine stereo/speakers, chrome fire extinguisher, 36-13-16 Super Swamper tires on alloy wheels, brand new Swamper spare tire, new race bucket seats, 4 point race harnesses, custom front/rear bumpers w/d-rings and receiver hitches, bikini top, heavy duty rock sliders, Optima red top battery, Hi-lift jack and more. This Jeep would make an awesome back country hunting rig, is quiet and creeps-crawls along really well for being 42 years old.

The Not So Good Stuff:

This Jeep is 42 years old and so there is some negative stuff to be expected. The biggest issue is that there is some "old rust in the front floor boards (see photos) We don't have rust in this part of Colorado, by "old rust" I mean it looks like it was caused by the original carpet and is no longer active. There is no rust or anything in the frame or underside, only where there was carpet inside. There are scratches, scrapes, some old primer on the front passenger fender (see photos) a few dents-dings etc as you would expect on a rig built to be used like this. There is a "gash" on the backside of the radiator, can send a photo, does not affect anything. The marine stereo causes a slight drain on the battery so we unhook the positive cable when parked long term. The tires have very good tread but look somewhat old-weathered to me. This Jeep still needs some work ( a list that never ends on old Jeeps lol) but overall I like it very much, it's mechanically very solid, has a lot of potential. I drove it around in the sage all afternoon for photos and had a great time doing it, would guess it could be driven home if you're really careful but its really not meant to be on the street, a trailer would be a lot smarter. This is a super old cool off road ride and will make the right person very happy to own it.

Shipping: I have shipped industrial fleet trucks all over the world, have connections in the auto transport industry and have the ability to arrange wholesale shipping anywhere in the USA but the cost is entirely yours. For example, I just shipped a Jeep wrangler to Oklahoma for $600 and another to Wisconsin for $650, figure approx. .55-.65 a mile.

Fiat 500X poised for Paris catwalk

Wed, 05 Feb 2014 09:45:00 EST

We've known for some time that the new, Fiat-based baby Jeep (which may or may not be called the Jeepster) is set to arrive at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. What we weren't sure of was whether its platform mate, the so-called Fiat 500X, would be doing so alongside or at a later date. Well, according to Reuters, we'll get to see the first all-wheel-drive 500 later this year in the City of Lights.
Yes, we can expect the 500X to arrive at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, according to an official with an Italian trade union. The unnamed source cited retooling at Fiat's Melfi factory, in southern Italy, which currently produces the Grande Punto. It's expected that the newest member of the growing 500 family will replace the Suzuki SX4-based Fiat Sedici, although when the X will go on sale remains an open question.
According to Reuters, both the Jeepster and 500X will be built alongside each other in Italy. Whether the 500X will cross the pond with it's slat-grilled cousin, though, remains to be seen (we're leaning towards yes).

Toyota tops Kelley Blue Book's Resale Value Awards

Tue, 27 Nov 2012 18:30:00 EST

Kelley Blue Book announced its annual Best Resale Value Award winners, and we weren't too surprised to see the list dominated by Japanese automakers - mainly Toyota and Honda. KBB hands out the awards based on the projected residual value of mostly all 2013 model year vehicles, and Toyota skated home with a number of awards including 10 of the 22 overall categories and having five of its products in the top 10 for models with best resale value. KBB's Best Resale Value Awards were announced in the same week as the ALG Residual Value Awards, and there were many similarities between both lists, especially when it came to Toyota.
To come up with its winners, KBB measures depreciation over the first five years of ownership, and looks for the cars it expects to hold its value the best after this time; on average, the report says the 2013 model year vehicles will lose 61.8 percent of its value in five years. Of the 22 categories, 15 slots were filled by Toyota, Honda and Nissan products, while the Camaro and Porsche (Cayenne and Panamera) each took home a pair of awards. If Toyota has anything to be upset about in this list of cars, it's that categories for Hybrid/Alternative Energy Car and Electric Vehicle went to the Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Volt, respectively.
The overall top 10 models for the best resale value in 2013 are, in alphabetical order:

Chrysler taking big risk snubbing NHTSA

Maker Insists Feds Overstate Risk Of Fires With Grand Cherokee, Liberty Models
It's not often that recall stories make it above the fold, in that old newspaper parlance, but when one shows up as the lead story on the network evening news programs, you know it's something big.
And so it is with Chrysler snubbing its nose at a request by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to recall 2.7 million Jeeps the feds insist are at risk of potentially catastrophic fuel tank fires in a rear-end collision.
