    Running/driving Stone White 5.9. Needs work. $850 BRO

    So, ya. Long post but figured I'd lay everything out up front.

    203k mile Stone White. Asking $850 or BRO.
    Never let me down in the two years I've owned it. Always starts runs and drives. Registered and driven daily but needs a lot of work. Probably would not pass inspection.

    Has skids, tow hooks, Jeep mud flaps on rear. Was told it had tow package but the bar is gone - I may have one to throw in with the sale.

    Body looks pretty decent but it's got rust issues underneath. Rockers are rusty behind the skirts. Lip rust on hatch, hood, and doors (except front pass door. Super clean for some reason) with the usual rust stains
    Front bumper and right fender have a scuff, rust just starting to show on left fender, and both bumpers have hairline cracks. (I have two decent matching bumpers that might go with it

    It has most of the usual ZJ problems;
    Driver's door pin bushings.
    ABS light is on.
    Headlights are hazy.
    VIC coolant sensor warning.
    Dash lights flicker.
    Seat/mirror memory has Alzheimer's.
    Stock stereo head unit is iffy. Shuts off etc. (Strangely enough all the speakers seem to be good)
    Sunroof is shot. Works but sticks in some positions. Seal is totally shot and it leaks. (Have a good spare that might go with it)

    Interior is just okay. Needs a serious cleaning. Front seats have the usual wear, but no rips. Console has some minor nicks. Most of the 5.9 specific stuff is in good shape. I think steering wheel and headliner are good (will double check that)

    Needs a LOT of work on the suspension and brakes.Front CAs have maybe 20k. (NOTE: Just put new Pittman to right wheel tie rods and sleeve on about a hundred miles ago)
    Comes with 3 spare rear CAs with 17k miles (four, but one has a bad bushing)

    Drivetrain;Possible head gasket issues. Really not sure what the deal is with the motor, but I'm pretty sure it's not the original one.
    Jeep has a CARB sticker for a Mopar purple cam - but it doesn't run like it has one and I'm seeing a few non-Jeep brackets on the motor, so I'm pretty sure it's been replaced.

    Tranny seems to work fine and the 249 Tcase actually seems to be fine .
    Not sure about the rear axle but I'm going to say it has the usual noises.

    All stock except for crappy 3" after the cat. New muffler, but it's just kinda jammed in there and the system doesn't hang quite right.

    No 5.9 rims available. Comes with five 98 5.2 Limited rims - left front is fugly from the Jeep it came off of, but the matching full size spare has never even seen an axle!

    Lots of spare parts that might go with it for just a little bit more money, including two of the fairly rare Jeep 5.9-only 46RE trannies. Spares might be available separately, but offering them with the Jeep first. (Will not ship!)Spare parts post: http://thespeedfreaks.net/showthread...ly-Boston-area

    Just too many project niners and it's time to clean out the garage and the driveway. Not looking to make a lot on this Jeep or the parts - rather see it all go to a good home.
    Come take it for a test drive!

    Hatch has holes at the top. Probably had a deflector on it at one point. Comes with free Master Shake sticker! lol

    I'm keeping this 5.2 Limited grill, but it may come with a "just less than perfect" 5.9 grill depending on final price.http://s182.photobucket.com/user/Z88Zsstuff/media/98%2059%20SW%202/HPIM0424%20-%20Copy_zps1wvqstyo.jpg.html]
    Grill has this one tiny piece missing. Otherwise it's good, has all mounting tabs intact and paint is good.http://s182.photobucket.com/user/Z88Zsstuff/media/98%2059%20SW%202/HPIM0432_zpskc8ahjjs.jpg.html][/URL]Cup holder not included! lol http://s182.photobucket.com/user/Z88Zsstuff/media/98%2059%20SW%202/HPIM0428_zpssfkykpvl.jpg.html][/URL]http://s182.photobucket.com/user/Z88Zsstuff/media/98%2059%20SW%202/HPIM0429_zpss1lx915f.jpg.html][/URL]








    EDIT: Looking for a 2WD ZJ front beam. Need the complete axle side to side with spindles and stub shafts etc.

    Well, that's it almost exactly - except it's about time and not money.

    I've been jumping from one of these niners to the other, trying to patch them up to drive and all that. Spent so much time doing that I haven't had time to really do right by any of them.

    I gotta whittle down the collection and get them to where it's fun again instead of a chore - dig?

    I do.

    It's been my yard tractor the last few months, lol! It's not getting beat on - just used it to pull a few things.

    It's developed an oil leak and a (minor?) electrical problem.

    Oil leak might be as simple as a loose filter or valve cover gaskets - i just haven't even had time to look at it.

    The electrical thing it only does once in a while. Kinda weird. Starts and runs fine, lights work - but gauges, windows, and heat/blower cut out. I assume it's something simple, but again - haven't had time to get into it.

    So it's for sale and kinda cheap, I just don't know how soon I'll be able to move on it.
