The gentleman whom I bought this Jeep from a year ago really did a fantastic job. He stripped it down and rebuilt it part by part while fabricating along the way. He was a true craftsman. It’s a head turner and random people will be asking you questions or giving you thumbs up on every drive you take. The straight pipes really sound amazing. Why am I selling it? There is too much going on in my life at the moment and I simplifying a bit.
If you’re interested or have questions, shoot me an email. No joy riders or bums. Bums with $ – ok!”
