This Jeep started life as a 1997 TJ Wrangler. I frame stretched it 15" to match the dimensions of a Jeep LJ Unlimited. The difference is the full stretch is behind the door giving a 108" wheelbase. This allows the use of a factory LJ soft or hard top while giving excellent approach and departure angles.
This Jeep runs and drives great. Tons of power when needed, and docile and easy to drive when you don't. Would work well as a daily driver or a dedicated trail rig. Drive to the trails, wheel, and drive home. Cruises down the freeway great - and even gets over 20 MPG at 60 MPH. Of course, does amazing on the trails.
Has lots of room in the back for gear. Has working OBD2 port for diagnostics and emission. No codes. Will need a catalytic converter to pass a visual inspection if you have one.

Only selling due to being burned out on this project. Time to start something new.
Frame stretch, suspension, and tires all like new. Four trail runs and a few thousand miles on the road.

Lots of time and money went into this one, own something that is truly unique!

This is an awesome Jeep that gets looks everywhere I drive it. It isn't however a show Jeep. It has issues with the paint and some dings. Also the parking brake is not hooked up (never bothered me since it's an automatic) and the heat and defrost settings work but the vent setting does not.

Please feel free to email me with any questions. I have more pictures on my photobucket I can direct you to, and some videos.

Jeep Liberty under investigation for door fires

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 09:31:00 EST

The Jeep Liberty has already had plenty of attention for possible fires thanks to the first-gen model's fuel tank, but now the midsize Jeep is under the microscope of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for another fire-related concern. NHTSA has opened an investigation for the 2012 Liberty after receiving two reports of electrical fires in the driver's door.
According to the investigation summary, around 80,000 vehicles could potentially be affected by this problem. In both reported fires, the drivers noticed smoke and then flames from the master power window switch, and they had to pull to a stop and exit through the passenger side of the SUV. According to Autoguide, there was one injury to a motorist who suffered burned fingers while trying to open the driver's door.
Interestingly, the Dodge Nitro is not yet involved in this investigation, even though it was still around for the 2012 model year; the Nitro ended production in 2011 about a year before the final Liberty rolled off the line for the 2013 model year. Scroll down for the official NHTSA investigation summary.

Europe gets Jeep Wrangler Polar limited edition

Wed, 04 Sep 2013 09:33:00 EST

Jeep will be bringing an all-new, limited-edition model to the European market called the Wrangler Polar. Based on the Wrangler Sahara and set to make its debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Wrangler Polar sports new Hyrdro Blue paint, gloss black 18-inch wheels, a body-color hardtop, and the regular mix of Mopar styling accessories. Billet Silver Metallic and Bright White are available for those that don't dig the glossy blue, while a two-door variant will be available in addition to the four-door pictured above.
The Polar's interior features similar tweaks; Pearl White contrast stitching can be found on both the seats and steering wheel, while ceramic White bezels and other accents give a nice contrasting look to the cabin.
Underhood sits an engine that should make American Wrangler enthusiasts weep - a 2.8-liter, four-cylinder turbodiesel. With 200 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque channeled through a five-speed automatic transmission, the Wrangler Polar should handle itself just fine on normal roads. British buyers will also be able to select the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. For rougher stuff, Dana axles can be found front and rear (Dana 30 up front and Dana 44 in back), while the Command-Trac four-wheel-drive system and its two-speed transfer case should be enough for when the roads disappear.

Ward's releases 10 Best Interiors list for 2014

Thu, 10 Apr 2014 17:28:00 EST

While we're still a ways off from the automotive awards season proper, where things like North American Car and Truck of the Year, Motor Trend's Car of the Year and Car and Driver's Ten Best are named, that doesn't mean there aren't trophies being handed out to deserving automakers. Ward's 10 Best Interiors being one of them.
As the name might imply, the magazine focuses on the very best interior treatments in the US market. Whereas some awards purposely exclude extreme, high-dollar offerings, Ward's considers them - the only requirement is that a vehicle has a "new or significantly redesigned interior."
Ward's offered up the list of winners in simple, alphabetical order, and it only seems fair to do the same:
