“This vehicle could be tagged as the orig. SUV, it’s been fully modified for off road as well as highway use. Body needs some cosmetic work but mechanically it’s solid. Everywhere you go it gets loving attention. Larie Tales at JEEPS R US of Laguna Beach appraised it, as is, at $25,000 to $30,000. I personally don’t think it’s there yet, but the asking price is reasonable.
