2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited SUV Blue 4WD Automatic X
I had it listed before and after I had it listed a guy who used to do my work close to a decade ago finally got back in touch with me and he promised after that in 1 month he would get back with me because he was swamped BUT he never did(and I had spent $50 g with him over 6 years in the past on paint jobs and I felt/feel insulted how he treated me with this, never getting back with me to take it in).
So, someone else recommended another shop to me.
I actually hv 4 jobs rt now for someone and even more important to me then Jeep is my RARE 96 GMC DSL 1/2 ton pick up(shown in last pic) and plan was for recommended guy to paint GMC and then I was going to drop Jeep off whenever GMC was ready.
So I had been quoted $2,000-$2,500 to paint GMC which I was OK with but whenever I went to shop to drop it off today guy jumps from $2-$25 to $3,955(must hv thought I was DUMB), SOOOOO I left and I’m still in search of a FAIR paint/body guy, meanwhile tho here’s this Jeep SITTING again!!!
I own/off want to sell/keep(finish).
After other guy was supposed to finish it I got excited and I spent $1,400 bucks on it(new cowl hood, another rt fender that didn’t come to me color/shade as shown on eBay(I pd $950 alone for hood and rt fender).
Then I bought some custom made $150 color matches floor mats, a $150 custom gauge face(super cool), custom color matched keys, and custom blue color interior trim pieces($150).
All of that on top of 5 custom wheels/tires, a custom front bumper, custom side steps, a nice double din SONY stereo, an angry face grille, and color matched lug nuts($1,400 here). So $2,800 alone in upgrades not counting a $2 g 4” lift, a new $250 radiator with installation, Jeep is actually an X pkg, had no hard top, so I upgraded top($1,500), so all of this alone adds up to $6,050!
And also, from damage, I spent $1,500 with labor on having front axle replaced, also, spent $450 on having its steering box replaced. Oh, and $250 having gear shifter cable replaced(original ones commonly stretch). So now I’m at $8.250 spent on it!!!
I won it rt(at a great price) because Copart lost its key and it was a gamble buying without a key for anyone BUT luckily I had it picked up on a rollback and brought over it me, had a locksmith come out and cut a key for it, and BAM, with charge of a battery it cranked rt up and it literally ran perfectly!!!
Long story short from here it needs to go on a frame machine and have a little frame pulling/tweaking(which will also correct where rt door lines up to rt fender).
Then, it will need an alignment from having front axle swapped out, next a new front windshield(only $130), and last a little paint work(has some scratches here and there).
Lets just say I have a LOT more $$$ then my LOW/FAIR buy it now price!
I’m kinda just looking at I need 3 more vehicles to go to some paint shop and meanwhile this is just sitting there???!!!
So, if I can c a QUICK $9,550 for it I’ll roll with that and call it a day!
People, U CANNOT BEAT THIS DEAL on a Jeep JKU(especially with these add on)!
I watched an 08 green one today wrecked, 150k mls, no lift, needed 2 left doors and front end work do $8,700 via Copart and after their HIGH buying fees(via AutoBidMaster if u don’t hv a dlr lcs), add $1,300 so $10 G on the nose!!!
And mine has tons more goodies/add one and I’m $450 CHRAPER!!!
ZERO RUST too(was always a Texas and a Louisiana Jeep).
If your a TRUE Jeep guy then u know what a TRUE DEAL this really is!
Jeep rune perfectly with COLD AC!
Actually drives fine too but I wouldn’t recommend driving far or fast until alignment is done(which makes sense to hv it put on a frame machine first to hv it ready for alignment machine).
Can recommend a fast/reliable auto transporter if needed.
Only respond too IF u read/understand add, my payment instructions(I’d hv to bill u via PayPal a $500 deposit, full balance from there pd via bank wire transfer, and pd within 3 business days). Thanks
