Well I am thinking it may be time to get a 4 door. I really do not want to get rid of this jeep but a 4 door would be a lot easier with the family. It is a 2008 rubicon there is a lot of work that has been done on this rig. It has a fresh paint job. The color is orange crush and looks great. The rear was stretched 8" using the Rock Krawler long arm stretch kit. The front is sitting on Rock Krawlers RRD 2-5/8 coilovers. The front grill was cut to clear the 40's at full steer. The interior was bed lined for easier clean up. The jeep has right around 65000 miles on it and will change since i drive it everyday. It will run 75 down the highway no problem. I wouldn't hesitate to drive it across country. It comes with 4 tires and wheels the fifth that is in the tire carrier is a 37 and I will be keeping that one. If you are interested in getting a fifth then I can get a discount on it. After every wheeling trip I always got under the jeep and touched up any scratches to keep it looking clean and keep the rust away. It is very clean underneath. I just got done sand blasting the rear axle and repainted it. All the arms got sanded down and repainted also. The jeep will fit in a standard 7' garage door. The only reason I am wanting to get rid of it is because we have a 1 year old and we take the jeep out a lot so a 4 door will be much easier. I am looking to get 30,500.00

NHTSA boss Strickland weighs in on Jeep recall fracas

Sat, 15 Jun 2013 17:01:00 EST

Adding yet another chapter to the ongoing Jeep recall story, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) head David Strickland has gone on record to defend the government's request that Chrysler recall 2.7 million out-of-production Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Liberty vehicles after the agency investigated fiery rear-end collisions that have reportedly killed at least 51 people over the years. In statements made to The Detroit News, Strickland said, "We felt very strongly that the process that we undertook and the findings that we made and ... we made the decision to issue a recall request. We do not take that very lightly." The top US auto safety regulator stopped short of telling owners to park their cars until the automaker takes action. "They can make their own risk assessment and their own choices," he said.
Chrysler does not intend to recall the models, insisting the "vehicles met and exceeded all applicable requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, including FMVSS 301, pertaining to fuel-system integrity" when they were manufactured and sold. "The company does not agree with NHTSA's conclusions and does not intend to recall the vehicles cited in the investigation. The subject vehicles are safe and are not defective," Chrysler announced last week in a statement. "We believe NHTSA's initial conclusions are based on an incomplete analysis of the underlying data, and we are committed to continue working with the agency to resolve this disagreement."
Legally, Chrysler has until June 18 to formally respond to NHTSA's request. If the automaker does not take action, NHTSA is expected to issue a formal finding and seek a recall.

NHTSA still mulling crash tests for recalled Jeeps

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 19:00:00 EST

Well, no one should ever accuse the government of not giving things plenty of thought. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is still debating whether it will retest any of the 1.56 million 1992 to 1998 Grand Cherokees and 2002 to 2007 Libertys that were part of a recall regarding fires after rear-end collisions. And yes, this debate has been going on for over a month. In other news...
The recall dustup started in early June, when Chrysler took the unusual position of refusing a recall request from NHTSA regarding placement of the fuel tank on the effected vehicles. NHTSA said a collision could cause a fire, a position Chrysler took issue with. Extensive negotiations ensued, with Chrysler agreeing to fit certain Jeeps with trailer hitches, which it said would provide some protection to fuel tanks mounted behind the rear axle in the event of a collision.
Part of the issue rests with the amount of data that needs to be processed, according to The Detroit News. NHTSA administrator David Strickland said during a Washington Auto Press Association meeting, "There's a lot of data and Chrysler is being very cooperative in giving us more data." Until that information has been sorted, it looks like re-testing will still be up for debate.

WWII Jeep 'found in crate' set to cross Greenwich auction block

Thu, 30 May 2013 17:44:00 EST

Fans of old military vehicles might want to pay extra close attention to the Greenwich Concours d'Elegance coming up this weekend. Crossing the Bonhams auction block on Sunday are a pair of seemingly flawless World War II Jeeps, which are both expected to fetch serious dollars.
Lot Number 305 at the auction is a 1945 Ford GPW Jeep that has been fully restored, which is expected to command between $35,000 and $45,000. Shortly after the Ford GPW, a potentially more interesting 1944 Willys MB (shown above) will be auctioned off, but Hemmings raises some red flags about this Jeep. First, it is claiming to have been "discovered in its original crate about 30 years ago," but there is no proof or documentation of any sort. Also, it is claiming to be all original, but it was given a paint job "shortly after it was discovered." Even with these questionable descriptions, this Willys could reach between $20,000 and $30,000. Head over to Bonhams' site and Hemmings for more information on both WW2-era Jeeps.
