Repaired frame rail crack near steering box (typical) - years ago, has C-Rok frame plates also

This is a very capable, simple, and reliable trail rig. It was built for rock crawling and extreme trails. It has been well-used and the body shows it but should clean up well once the new panels and doors are installed. This Jeep was not built for the road or high speeds. The rear spool is unpleasant on pavement and creates a lot of binding and body roll around turns, especially with the current lack of a front sway bar. The hydro steering is not a high-performance set up, is not responsive enough for evasive maneuvers at speed, and also may not be necessary for 35s. The Jeep has not been used for 5-6 years now and it is time for a new owner. It has been garaged since 2004, and trailered for wheeling since probably 2005. It’s a capable trail rig that could hit the trails today, or could be refined a bit with some TLC.
