This is a complete Jeep Wrangler TJ Build from the ground up. It is Titled as a 1997 due to the vin that is on the tub. All the other components are 2000 or newer. The frame was removed from a donor jeep then went completely over even put on a frame machine to check for straightness. Then it was sandblasted and primed and powder coated black. The motor came from a 2000 wrangler and has 88,657 original miles on it. it's a 4.0 inline 6 with AC and a manual 5 speed transmission. This jeep is a great vehicle for everyday driving or can handle any off-roading you can find. I wanted something I could drive everyday but still could handle any obstacles off-road. Almost all the parts acquired for this jeep were from my other Jeep projects in the past. The parts used are not cheap and that is why the price is higher than average, but I do not like to have mechanical failures while out on the trails so I only use good parts. Everything on this has been powder coated even the tub, I have pictures of the build also if you are interested. below is a list of all parts added.

Body/tub is a complete rust free and dent free 2000 purchased on ebay, primed and powdercoated matte white.
Doors are half doors purchased on ebay, I disassembled them to be powder coated and replaced any necessary parts
Bestop trek top NX top in great condition with Bestop upper sliders for doors

AC works excellent along with heat, all this has been updated to the 2000 or newer electronic HVAC style.

Front & rear custom built dana 44s geared at 4.88. this is where the majority of expense is, the front is full rcv built with reid knuckles along with chevy big brake conversion. It is also trussed on the top. equipped with arb air locker, the bolt pattern is 5x5.5. I grantee you will not break these axles. The front is also equipped with warn lockouts to disengage the front wheels for better road travel. The rear is basically built with the same idea, arb air locker, chromo axle shafts 35 spline (upgraded from the standard 31) has disk brake conversion along with working parking breaks. you can lock the brakes up on the pavement with the front and rear setup on here.
