Well, It didnt work out. The car had all sorts of problems, mostly body stuff, the front bumper was missing all the inner support, and fog lights, dont ask me why I didnt notice that one, and it had been cracked, epoxied back together and painted. The passenger door had been removed and put back on wrong/crooked. There was worn spots on the roof from a roof rack that had rusted and just been painted over, all 4 rotors had been turned incorrectly, the rear brake pads were worn unevenly. The rear crossmember was rusted like crazy, and a bunch of other little stuff I would expect on a car with almost 90k miles.

Back to the drawing board. Sucks because theres only 3 of them listed in my state on craigslist, Leaving for Memphis tomorrow (vacation) when I get back theres quite a bit in Seattle and 4 Ive got my eye on. My mind is set on a 3 door EAP not picky on color though I like the blue best.

Thanks man, love my jeep, its got a bunch of stuff on it including full currie steering all 8 adjustable CAs fully adjustable track bars swapped in Dana 44 rear locked and swapped in Np231 t-case with Rustys x-member and full front to rear skids, plus a bunch of other stuff, its at 6" of lift right now and will be getting 35"s after I find an SVT. It has been my DD for over 3 years now, I live close to work right now but in a few weeks im moving so I need a more practical DD. Plus the Jeep needs some work, Rear main seal, oil pan gasket and heater core, all of which will keep it down for months as I find the time to do the repairs.

And that, folks, is how it's done.

Even though it looks like you didn't end up with that one.

Tell me what you guys think. I paid 8000 for this car, It has every option available, cold weather, EAP, HID, everything, etc..... 75k miles, straight body, everything is perfect except one thing. It needs a clutch, not bad but it will need one within the next 10k miles. The dealer has agreed to refund me $500 so should I take it or look for another car?

I don't know about Oregon but in Illinois that's way too expensive. They are going for sub 6k around here with no major issues. I just bought mine almost exactly like the one u described but with 119k miles for 4200.
