    This is a great Jeep, it is a veteran of numerous Rubicon adventures and has served me well. 85 to 1 crawl ratio!!
    I built this Jeep in 2000-2003 and sold it in 2004. I bought it back in January 2021 and have upgraded many things. This Jeep went over the Rubicon trail in July 2021 without issue and has since wheeled several trails in Idaho. Located in Twin Falls, Idaho.

    A very temping offer.

    I think it would cost a good deal more than the asking price to build a trail Jeep with all those upgrades. It is probably a good thing you are not close enough for me to run over and give it a look, but I can't travel to Idaho without the wife noticing I am gone :whistle:

    Yep, it be damn hard to build one for that money. That is a great play Jeep right there. I'm also glad its in Idaho. And the gas prices now a days just helps to keep me from being tempted. Besides, I have a 46 VEC in Ohio to get and another 81 Scrambler coming from Colorado. But, ifin I wuz rich, ...................................................

    Yeah, this is a nice one. Perfect for Moab or Sand Hollow. I’ve been watching it since it was first listed for $9000. 3 hours away. I’ve been gathering parts to build a flat fender locker stocker, but this is dang tempting!

    Bob, I hope you realize that if you buy this jeep you are committing yourself to running the Rubicon with us this year.
