Been my daily driver for almost a decade, but finally upgraded and it's time for it to go.
It's been maintained the 10 yrs I've had it. Definitely has some bumps and bruises that it came with, and the power has diminished a bit, but it runs well and fires up every time. The 4.0L in-line 6 is bullet proof. The 4-wheel drive works amazing in the snow. I've never taken it off-road. The brakes should be gone through in the near future; disk upfront, drum in rear.

Everything works with following exceptions:
A/C needs to be re-charged (condenser still engages fine)
U Joint driver's side front driveline likely needs to be replaced.
Rear hatch-lock only works with power locks.
Rear window washer tube broken (wiper and defroster work fine).

Smog:
I had the Jeep in Salt Lake City for about 7 years and it passed smog every time, no prob, and I have the paperwork. In SLC, they do a dual idle curb smog test and test for O2 and CO2.

I was in San Diego, CA for a couple years and could not get it to pass smog there. In California, it is required to put the vehicle on a dyno and take O2, CO2, and NO2 readings at 35mph. I did everything possible to get it to pass, but these Jeeps are notorious for failing NO2, which mine did. I have the paperwork to show passing readings for O2 and CO2. I would not recommend a California buyer try to smog this; prob best for only a build-out there.

I and the vehicle are currently in Reno, NV. The vehicle is registered in Arizona, and NO smog is required. I'm moving to AZ end of November, and if I can't get a good offer before then, I'll take it with me and put it on the market there. So, I have no interest in entertaining low-ballers.

This is a unique and hard to find vehicle in this condition and with this mileage. The undercarriage had some kind of coating on it, so even with multiple seasons in SLC on it, there is no rusting through of the undercarriage. The pics do show some exterior rust spots. Those a pretty superficial, and if they bug you, its prob not the right vehicle for you.

For the aficionados, this is a "Renix" era Jeep. Fuel injected and all ignition timing is electronically controlled.
