  1. So besides the XJ side of the project there is the overlanding side of the project. I'm going in a little different direction than what I would do personally, because I'm trying to think like the masses that go overlanding/glamping (Cobound?). So I picked up this lightly used, reportedly 6 times, Thule Tepui Roof Top Tent. It also came with a couple of extras. Sum together this would be about $2700 new, I bought it for $1500. Not cheap, but I'm pleased with the price, I think its depreciated enough I could always break even on reselling the tent if I needed to. Currently it is installed
  2. I've been looking at having some vehicles as short term rentals. Turo lets you rent out vehicles just as a vehicle rental, and there are some other sites that let you rent out campers and such. Some of these things are pretty big money, but in purchase and in rental fees a day. I've decided I want to test the waters of this business with a low upfront cost vehicle setup. For this I'm going to build an XJ with a Roof Top Tent and misc camping gear. The goal is to provide all the gear someone needs for an overlanding vacation in Colorado, just pick up the vehicle, stop at the grocery
  3. So a friend and I partnered on this one for a flip. Guy was a flake and several of us had messaged him without response, so I messaged him and he responded to me. Zipped down after my closing on my refi, and checked it out, he thinks it needs a motor and it wouldn't start, so I am assuming the worst and will be rebuilding a motor for it. Plan is to put a new motor in, do some maintenance, some cleanup, put a set of JK tires/wheels on it, and then resell.

  5. Top off the fluid. These things need to be at full or above. If it’s on Min it’s too low.
  6. A YJ pcm won’t work in a 97+ XJ. ecus can be reflashed to a different PN in some cases. I had a customer in France needing a non security pcm for a 97xj, so we had a federal ECU reflashed to the California/export PN and to match his vin.
  7. I think your Jeep would do very well on BAT.

    "The Middle"

    Too gawd damm twangy and not enough Jeep.
  9. Have it in tan but I’m sort of wanting to keep my tan parts tan and not paint them. I have the black B pillar covers and would like to source some black rocker/door jamb plastics. let me know if ya got it.
  10. From what I can see it looks like buffing it could restore the paint nicely. But I’m not there in person.
  11. I found it on Craigslist. Ya it was my intention to flip it. I never expected it to pull so much though. I figured I could get 6k locally and maybe 8k on BAT. I did not expect it to go so high. Never had something sell so high before.

    ZJ Sunroof

    When the WJ came out Jeep has a commercial where they said the only thing they reused from the ZJ was the mirror screws.
  13. Man what a day, take a look at the bidding history near the end and how they came in. Lots of people holding off until the end to snipe it. Winning bidder bid with 25 seconds remaining and then we went into the 2 minute timer again. I just talked to the guy and he is super excited about it. Going to someone who will appreciate it.
  14. Holy cow this has been a roller coaster of a day, auction is almost over! Been a long time since I've sold anything on a auction like this, or bought, stressful and exciting at the same time.
  15. Ya it’s hit reserve.
