This is a DIESEL POWERED CJ7. When you buy this CJ you will be buying a ONE of a kind Jeep. This Jeep is originally from Missouri where it was stored in a barn till 2008. This is when the rebuild started. This is a COMPLETE frame off restoration. The Jeep has all new body mounts, underside and inside of tub were rubber undercoated. Has new 4" Rough Country lift kit, new polished aluminum rims with 12.5 x 35 Maxxis Bighorn tires with matching spare, All new brake system including rotors, calipers, drums, wheel cylinders, shoes and Master cylinder. The Jeep is powered by a CUMMINS 4BT engine out of a 91 Frito Lay Delivery truck which had 50k miles on it. Engine was disassembled and rebuilt. Starter and alternator are new. Fuel injection is stock, the Turbo is for a 5.9 so it does have increased boost. Transmission was made for this Jeep by Bishop International in Texas. The transmission is NV4500, the transfer case is stock Dana 300 that was rebuilt, drive shafts are stock and rebuilt. New power steering pump. New power steering box with heavy duty shaft installed. New aluminum radiator, custom made dash from 1/4" diamond plate aluminum. All seats, console and carpet are new. New stereo and custom speaker boxes, all tie rod ends are new, front hubs, bearings and seals are NEW, front axle out shafts are rebuilt. I have over 48 pages of receipts. I am sure I have forgot many things that have been done to this CJ. The Jeep has hardtop and hard doors. Top is removed easily. It does have the 5 speed manual transmission. Paint is near perfect. Jeep has less than 200 miles since complete rebuild.This Jeep is a TRUE one of a kind vehicle that could be a great addition to anyones collection or could be used as a daily driver. Please call or text Ryan at 239-980-1806 for any further questions you might have. Please serious inquiries only.

Were it brand new, off the lot, with 4.2 miles on it, maybe.  As it is, nope.

I think 12-15K is what it will bring to the right buyer.

Its a old simple rig , it will appeal to a few but I dont think it will sell at the asking price.

The motor isn't really a selling point except to the few who really know what that swap is worth and cost but it doesn't make up for the suspension and axles it lacks. Around here a stock one is easy to find and in great shape around 5k so the swap wouldn't cost you no where near the difference
