Tilt steering column is from an S-10. Blinkers, hazards, wipers, horn and key are all wired in. Everything works. E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. Battery disconnect installed so the key can be left in to keep the wheel from locking while being towed and not drain the battery.
Comes with a solid bolt on tow bar for 1 7/8 ball and a set of magnetic tow lights.

I am sure I am forgetting a lot of other stuff.

FAQ’s:
Yes a TH350 is an automatic transmission with 3 forward gears. With the transmission and 4.56 gears you are pulling 3000rpm at 62mph. If you want to make it more of a freeway flyer and give up some zip, regear it. As it sits it will bark the tires and scoot you from 0-60 with a quickness.
Yes, it drives, runs, steers and stops great. However, it is a lifted CJ5, it doesn’t ride like a Camry it rides as nice as my Wrangler TJ but not as nice as my JKU. No weird shakes or vibrations.
Current wheels and tires came off another build. Wheels are immaculate and tires are at 60-50%
As you can see from the pics it is spotless inside, outside and underneath. No leaks, no drips.

Cons:
2 minor paint blemishes

I am not interested in any trades unless they are Jeeps or Jeep parts
