I may consider trades for an LJ. 

 

I don’t really want (or need) to sell this, just looking to get a more high school friendly vehicle.

Nice truck!  Great work on the resto.

 

I don't know how accurate this statement is based on the pics in your build thread though... "Was a 99% rust free truck before restoration"

Fixed it. Accidentally clicked the 9 twice instead of a 0 at the end. And I am talking about rust holes not actual surface rust.

Last post in your build thread you mention blowing the motor.  Is it the replacement that has 159K?

I am looking into putting in a 125k mike motor. I would not sell it until I put in a different motor.

I have to ask. What did you end up doing with the engine and the troubles you had with it? 

 

For the asking price you have you’ll want to make sure that it is clear to everyone here and other potential buyers online that the issues you had are COMPLETELY resolved...documenting all the work on here on a build thread/comments is a great thing to tell the story of what has been done. It can also work the other way and bring more attention to issues like this when you ask the price you are looking to get for it. 

 

Good luck with a clean sale. I hope this truck goes to a good home.

We have fixed he engine troubles. I’m just working on some preventative things now. I won’t sell it until that is finished, but I am seeing if there is any interest now.

I still have not put a new crank in it, but I should be here in the next month or so. Here is a link to the build thread:

The freshly rebuilt AX-15 and new crank will be going in to the MJ in the next couple of weeks. Once those are in, it is going to be listed for sale on Facebook too.

 

I have more money in this thing including parts and labor than my asking price!

 

I also have several hundreds of dollars worth of parts that will go with to return it to stock if desired!
