This Jeep and all the new parts listed have never seen the snow. It has been rebuilt for 2 winters and always stored. In 2016 it has not been driven until September due to surgery on my shoulder.

The rebuilt motor has less than 1000 miles on it.

I believe I have covered everything. Now, this Jeep is almost completely rebuilt, but not without issues. I feel I should note those in the name of honesty.

First off, not a problem, but can be perceived as one, there is a clacking in the transmission. It does this when the vehicles is idling clutch in or out. Not when accelerating. I have had it rebuilt twice and no issues were found. That's 3 specialists and nothing. The transmission performs well and have never had an issue.

The speedometer is off. I planned on putting larger tires on it so I didn't put a new gear in it yet. At 45 mph you are at 60.

With all of that said, I have had the Jeep appraised at $25,000.
