(Odgreen here) if you are not interested don't post. Simple. Op don't bump. Last warning.

Like the add says I have a nice jeep for sale, it has been well maintained, and not beat up. It has 123k on it now. Never been in an accident, and even the oil changes are on carfax until around 80k when I bought it and started doing them myself (always using the same oil, and Shell gas). It has all the options and then some, leather, Bluetooth stereo (w/iPhone hookup). It has a 3.5 inch lift with full spring, no lift blocks (Rubicon Express) on it with 31 inch BFG AT tires and has been geared right for the tires(410 gears, if you don't regear when putting bigger tires on it makes your engine work harder, these are the proper gears considering the tire size) . Steel braided brake lines, newer front and rear brakes, SYE. Too much to list if you would like to know more feel free to call or text me, I love this jeep but the only reason I am selling is because I need something that would be more fuel efficient for my drives from Bellingham to Kirkland, since I live 3 blocks from school I do not drive it very often I mostly use it for short trips or drives down south most of the miles are from road trips. I the cases I don't drive it for a few days I always make a point to al least star the Jeep and get it up to operating temp.

I am also open for trades, even if its worth less or maybe more I can throw in some money. (I like enduros) and am not too picky but I don't want your car with 200k, primer fenders, or a branded title. I am also a little flexible on the price, but please don't try to lowball me to the point it is insulting.

The pics may not bee too recent but it still looks about the same, and I will talk about all the pros and cons with the potential buyer.


Yes I know the price is above kbb, but if you have priced very many cars (like the vanagon) you would know it isn't always right. There is a reason this jeep is priced the way it is, it is that nice.That said I am flexible on price.

4.0 liter inline 6 cylinder (these engines are known for their durability)
aw4 automatic transmission (the very same model used in Toyota trucks for years)
power windows, locks, seats...power everything
Bluetooth phone control (you can connect your phone with the radio and have conversations through the radio without picking up your phone professionally installed by car toys)
USB stereo (great for hooking up ipods)
NV231 transfer case (this means its 4 wheel drive, and works very well, great for ski trips)
leather (and in great condition)
31 inch BFG all terrains (great tries, about half their life left)
tow hitch (wired, this jeep towed my dirt bike like it wasn't even there)
Top of the line floor mats throughout including trunk (have originals)
and last but not least the worlds worst cup holders thrown in for free!!!
and more... (roof basket was sold)

Parts Recently replaced...
Front brakes from les Schwab (pads, rotors, and calipers all brand new)
rear brake from lee Johnson Chevrolet (drums, shoes, and wheel cylinders, all brand new)
The entire cooling system from the heater control valve to the radiator, hoses, and water pump
steel braided brake lines
warn transfer case skid plate (if you look at it you can def tell this was a mall crawler)
top of the line floor mat throughout (have originals)
Rear end out of a 98 Cherokee (it is a bit stronger)
power steering pump (and flushed fluid)
serpentine belt
flushed brake fluid
Comes with extra set of control arm bushings for the front from RE (they need to be installed, easy 1 hour job, I just live in apts, and have limited tools I will try to take care of this soon)
... and probably a few things I can't remember off the top of my head.

Long story short I have kept this Jeep well maintained and when possible I avoided cheap Chinese parts at all costs.

I know I have been a bit of a flake about selling this jeep and have had a lot of interest in it, I have a lot of memories with it but if you tried before and are still interested try again. I have come to grips about getting rid of it.

After I fix some of the little issue the price is going to go up, but I am flexible on price.

WTT Samurai, svt, sporty, hatchback, xj, good mpg, maybe another 4x4, Toyota, Nissan Xterra Pathfinder, CRV, rav4, Subaru outback or GT, station wagon, no branded titles, I am really open for options as long as the car is clean and as well kept as the jeep, and gets reasonable MPGs (ie please no V8s, unless it is a prius with an LS7 swap, I think I could get away with telling the wife it is a hybrid lol).

The good: great condition inside and out, great oil pressure, and runs like a top.
Bad: needs a few things, like new hatch struts, and left side control arm bushings (Have the bushings, but not allowed to work on Jeep at my apts. so the next time I get a chance to use my dads garage it will be fixed), there is also a clunk in the rear, I was told by my mechanic that is was the driveshaft, and that he would redo for me (again his shop is also in Kirkland so next change I get to go home these issues will be taken of.
The ugly: Nothing, there rig has no dents, and all the leather is in good condition no tears.

This Jeep is only a few years away from being a classic, and would be the perfect Jeep for fans of the brand.

I have smoked in this car but have taken precautions to make sure it does not smell like an ashtray.

I have done a tune up, took pics of the old plugs they were in good condition considering, I can potential buyers post later.

Have a good long weekend, and keep the rubber side down.
