Just got back from buying #2, those are a HELLA light bar on top, very expensive accessory for these. The hauler will pick it up around 3 and drop it off here around 4pm this evening. Nice jeep, needs cleaned inside but not bad. The rear doors, both windows are off track (common issue due to plastic parts, I found a kit that has heavier duty metal parts to replace. The motor, a local shop will replace at $1200... I got the jeep for $1000 so not a bad deal at all. Might be a simple fix, said the motor rattles and I think its a harmonic balancer... so may not even need a motor? this one will start and run, just noisey

Talked to the guy up the street who just opened a new shop, has several businesses, and he will be giving me a quote on R&R today.... if all sounds good, I will have this jeep up and running very soon.
