I'm selling my favorite toy! This TJ has been the fun weekend vehicle for my family and two young boys. It is an absolute beast off road and is fully set up as the perfect TJ trail rig. It has the bulletproof 4.0L six that it well known for lasting 250k or more plus the NV3550 5 speed manual. I've made a lot of upgrades in the past year. The lift kit is not a cheap economy lift, it's a 3" BDS Suspension. This is a highly respected company with quality parts including their NX2 nitro shocks, tuned progressive springs, and JKS "Quicker" sway bar disconnects. Unlike many lifts out there, this ride is better than stock while still giving amazing performance off road. The front lower control arms have been upgraded to a much stronger tubular design which also gives you the ability to perfectly align the axle (which you can't do stock). It has 33x12.5 BFG all terrains in good shape. I'd guess they're around 50% tread life left. This TJ has the fairly rare factory Dana 44 limited slip rear end, which is a huge plus off road. Mechanically, the Jeep is in good shape, drives great, and everything works as it should.

The check engine light is on. If I reset the light, it sometimes goes for up to a month without coming back on again. I could reset it and not disclose this, but I want to be honest about everything up front. The code indicates a vacuum leak in the fuel vapor re-circulation emissions system. Everything I've read says a new fuel filler cap usually makes it go away, but since it doesn't effect fuel economy or how it runs I haven't changed the cap.
It has some rust spots in a few places if you look closely; specifically the bumpers and front fenders. The bumpers can easily be touched up with black spray paint. The frame was rusty, but I've mostly cleaned that up and sprayed new underbody coating where it shows. All of this is in line with the vehicle's age and the fact that TJs seem to attract rust!
With the 12.5" wide tires and wheel backspacing, this has a very wide stance for a TJ (more like a JK) which makes it very stable on hilly off road conditions. The fenders flares are new and are the largest I could buy at 7 inches wide. They match the wheel width so you won't throw dirt all over your passengers.
This was originally a Canadian Jeep, so the dash is metric. It's the basically the same as the US dash except the big numbers on the speedometer are kph and the smaller numbers are mph (reversed in the US).
There is a brand new Smittybilt X20 10K wireless winch and mounting plate installed, however this is NOT included in the auction price. It cost me $500 and I plan to use it on my next Jeep build. If you want that left on, I'll let it go for an additional $300 to the auction price.
The sound system is new and has been totally upgraded. The JVC head unit has dual bluetooth so both passenger and driver and have their phone paired at the same time to play music. Hands free phone mic works surprisingly well and people have said they can hear me fine on a call even with the top off. All 4 speakers are new JVCs. The fronts were upgraded to 5.25 round 2 ways instead of the junky factory ovals. Rears are upgraded to 6.25 2 ways. A new Kenwood powered sub is hidden under the rear seat and has its own volume and LPF controller hidden next to the driver's seat. In short, the sound system is amazing now.
As far as maintenance, I've done everything. New air filter, oil and oil filter, both differentials fluid changed (with limited slip modifier in rear), transmission and transfer case fluid changed, new spark plugs. I was told the brakes were all done before I got it. I know the fronts are good. I haven't been inside the rears to verify but they are quiet. Both driveshafts have slight leaks at the seal into the diff (a little gooey, no dripping) but this is common for any Jeep this age and doesn't really hurt anything. The right rear axle shaft end seal does have an issue will occasionally leak a few drops on to the tire. You could probably drive it forever like this if you wanted, but I'm particular about things being perfect so if it doesn't sell I'll end up replacing that seal some weekend soon. The 4WD works perfectly in high and low, but the gauge light does not turn on. The wheels/tires have been recently balanced and a full alignment was recently completed.
This Jeep had a hard top when I got it, so it's prewired for that if you want to add one. I don't like hard tops, so I replaced it with a new Rampage frameless top. This has a dual layer top section, so that you can quickly fold the side and rear windows up into the roof without fully removing them. Then you can run it as a bikini top with fully open sides but still have the sun protection.
That's everything I can think of, but I'll update the listing if more comes to mind. This Jeep is not perfect, but it's good for the age and mileage. It's been a lot of fun for my family. If you have any questions, just ask! Pickup will be the northeast side of Indianapolis, although it can be shipped at the buyer's expense. Certified bank check, cash, or wire required on pickup. Title is clear with no liens or anything odd. Thanks and good luck bidding!
