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.

Chrysler recalling nearly 141k vehicles over electrical woes

Wed, 02 Oct 2013 09:31:00 EST

Software glitches that randomly illuminate warning lights and cause instrument cluster blackouts are forcing Chrysler to recall 140,800 vehicles, The Detroit News reports. The automaker is recalling 132,000 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokees, 91,559 of which are in the US. In addition to the Jeep recalls, Chrysler is adding 10,800 2014 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 trucks to the list for similar problems.
Chrysler reportedly says, "Both events occurred infrequently and appeared to resolve themselves by tuning the vehicle's ignition off and then on."
Engineers discovered a problem with the anti-lock-braking system software that causes the instrument cluster display of the Grand Cherokee to illuminate warning lights and black out - even its ABS and electronic stability control systems are affected. To fix the Jeeps, Chrysler will update the vehicle's software.

These cars are headed to the Great Crusher In The Sky

Fri, 24 Aug 2012 14:58:00 EST

It happens every year. We bid adieu to some cars and trucks that will be missed, and say good riddance to others wondering how they stayed around so long. Whether they're being killed off for slow sales or due to a new product coming along to replace them, the list of vehicles being discontinued after 2012 is surprisingly long and diverse.
CNN Money has compiled a list of departing vehicles, to which we've added a few more of our own. In the slow sales column, cars like the Lexus HS 250h, Mercedes-Benz R-Class and the full Maybach lineup appear, while the Ford Escape Hybrid, Mazda CX-7 and Hyundai Veracruz are all having their gaps filled with more modern and more fuel-efficient alternatives. Obvious exceptions to the rule include models that still sell in decent numbers like the Jeep Liberty and the Chrysler Town & Country (which will eventually be replaced by a crossover-like vehicle).
Check out our gallery of discontinued cars above, then scroll down for more information.

Jeep shows off Moab Easter Safari concepts crawling the red rocks

Thu, 28 Mar 2013 16:58:00 EST

While most brands are busy showing off in New York, Jeep headed out to Moab for the Easter Jeep Safari with the company's fleet of 2013 concepts. This year saw the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk II, Wrangler Mopar Recon, Wrangler Stitch, Wrangler Sand Trooper II, Wrangler Flattop and Wrangler Slim Concepts tackle the rocks and sand, and Jeep was kind enough to bring along a camera crew to film the machines rolling over a few obstacles. The result is the video below, though don't expect to see too much hardcore off road action.
Instead, the quick clip features more than a few interviews with Jeep executives, including Jeep Head of Product Design Mark Allen, explaining what makes the Easter Jeep Safari so important. You can check out the quick clip below for yourself, and be sure to thumb through our galleries of the concepts as well.
