Description for Jeep Wrangler 1988

1988 Jeep Wrangler YJ Sahara
Please read entirely before bidding!
I purchased this Jeep about 4 years ago as strictly a lake jeep (driving on the dirt roads at low speeds). I have not taken it on the open roads or highways and would not recommend it until a few things have been fixed. This is a running project but has a tremendous amount of potential. Here are a list of known issues:
The Bad
  • Steering has a lot of play due to the extreme lift
  • Gas gauge does not work correctly
  • Wheels need to be balanced
  • Hard / Soft tops are both missing
  • Has cracks, fading, tears and missing plastic parts inside and outside
  • No back seat, No hard top, No soft top, No radio
  • Transmission leaks
  • 4WD has never been tested (so I assume it is not functioning)
  • Automatic shifter is hard to get in gear for reverse and drive
  • No idea if the A/C works
  • Brakes are a little soft
  • Needs inspection
  • 1 key
  • Mileage is around 140,000+ (not sure when the V8 was put in the Jeep)

The Good

  • It looks Bad A**
  • Total head turner with the powerful V8 350
  • New shocks
  • New radiator
  • New battery
  • New brake pads / rotors
  • Has a tow hitch
  • Super Swamper 36x12.50
  • Huge lift
  • Hard doors
  • Clear Texas title in hand

I do not any history on the Jeep or whom modified it to a V8 350. Contact me if you want to see the videos of it running. What you see is what you get! Great opportunity to turn this into something special.
