In 2005 -2006 this Jeep went through an engine rebuild, new upgrade wiring, t-case rebuild, front differential knuckle seals, bearings, Rancho shocks. I have not done any restoration to the body, it is the same as I acquired it.
A little history of this truck: previous owner purchased it at an FBI auction in Florida. It had 7″ of lift on it. They brought it back to Toledo, Ohio where it sat behind a building getting rocks thrown at it, where we bought it. I got it running within 3 days with carb rebuild but only on 5 cylinders. Took out the scary lift kit and engine the next winter and went through it along with the transfer case and clutch. The wiring was mouse eaten in places so a total rewire was in order. Then came brake lines, M/Cylinder, fuel lines (3/8″ stainless), front knuckle seals and wheel bearing pack. Amsoil 80w90 in all trans, t-case, front and rear diffs.
It’s not all in original form or function, some improvements have been made to the electrical and mechanicals. but it is a driver and head turner whenever I blow the dust off it here in Toledo. I’ve had it to the GM Powertrain Park N Shine show many times and have been blessed to meet a few of the people that worked at Jeep that remember working the assembly line building them, just to see the expression on their faces to see one again. I always let them or the young ones sit in it.
