Re: Good Deal?
I see a lot wrong with it for that price.
It still has a dana 30.
EVERYTHING was painted, door handles, windshield wiper attachment (no wipers though), door strikers, soft top rails, spare tire rack brackets, fuel filler pocket, defroster ducts, wiper linkage covers, wiper motor, hood catches.
Exhaust is outside the frame rails and turns down under the jeep. This is very easy to burn your leg on and the fumes will come back in if it doesn't run out the back corners.
No tailgate weatherstripping.
It has a bolt with a long shoulder for a winshield knob.
No cover on the shifter mechanism.
They call it a CJ8 but it's a CJ7.
It has a larger tank with spacers to lower the stock skidplate when with the body lift, it could have stayed higher.
No spare tire carrier.
No bumpers or bumperettes.
No inside rearview mirror.
No windshield cowl seal under the windshield frame.
No radio (minor issue).
No center console.
No back seat.
No trim rings around the headlights.
