    Jeep wired for electric cooling fan using derale control box. Have the fan as well with temp sensor installed in lower hose. Just haven’t put the Mark VII fan back in.

    Bad:
    Front seats are ripped in the center where your butt goes
    It creaks and groans due to IRO joints replacing bushings
    Power Steering box is failing which is why I have ordered a new one
    Oil pan leaks a drop of oil after sitting.
    Sunroof doesn’t open. Hasn’t since I bought it. Haven’t looked at why yet.

    Just over $9000 into it not counting the initial purchase price. Everything has less than a year and less than 6000 miles on it. I daily drive it now but want to focus on my other project. I drive it to Reno weekly and have gone on much longer road trips. No issues at all. Wonders just a little bit due to the no sway bars but as I said I can put those back on if desired. I will put the new steering box on when it comes in or you can do it if you want.


    Asking $8000 as is.
