Whats your verdict:

2000 Grand cherokee limited with the 4.0, 210k miles, described as clean, no leaks, regular maint, new tires, new brakes, no issues, asking 2700 (going to offer 2k)

Checking it out tomorrow. High miles, but as long as its been taken care of, I think it should be ok.

Thanks, not sure who makes the wheels, the lift is a 3.5 Rubicon Express.

that doesn't sound like anything I'd be concerned with.

Besides, that little whine will be the very least of your upcoming issues.

pretty sure the solution to that noise is to turn the stereo up.

Awesome! My friend's dad has a light blue '66 Bronco that he drives around farm fields. Such a cool little truck.

Hopefully the next time I buy tires I will put some 33's on her. Although to be quite honest I have never had a problem getting anywhere on the 31's.

Did it come with the plow set-up?

I would have WAY too much fun with that.

Yup. I bought it to use as a residential plow vehicle, both of my F-350s are too big and clumsy for driveways.

I was dead set on a '95 I found in flawless condition, with soft/hard top, half doors, new tires, and a bunch of other things...but no plow. I was quoted around $5,000 for the plow/pump/installation, so I bought the one with the plow already.

I can't wait til Spring rolls around and I can take the doors/roof off and cruise around.

Needs some work though. Radiator is near the end of its life, front seats aren't completely mounted to the floor anymore, body is pretty rough, tires are at the end of their life, a/c doesn't work (wiring), horn doesn't work (wiring), windshield resevoir/line is pissing, and a few other little things. Mechanically, the Jeep is great though.

Heard nothing to be concerned with there. Shifts sound solid.

If you are REALLY worried.

Change out your trans fluid+filter... do your diff fluids and check all your u-joints.

Yup. I've got 235/85r16's on it which are pizza cutters and a 2.5" lift. The chains on the rear tires lightly rub the fenders if you flex it out much, so it's a close fit. Without the chains the tires just barely clear.

It's got a 302/3spd in it right now, but I've got a roller 351 and zf 5spd to go in. I've got a fuel injection setup to go on the 351, but I'll stick with the 4bbl for now. One mod at a time because it can't be down for long.

The Bronco is a 71, and it had open diffs front and rear, a Dana 30 in the front, and a small bearing 9" in the back. I've got a limited slip Dana 44 front to swap in and a big bearing 9" with a detroit to go in the back. Should improve traction and strength by a lot.

Side shot of it:

If I missed it... I don't care. What lift did you go with? What tires are you running? And... what front bumper did you get?
