Hi -- I'm a new member. Had hoped to join for real and participate, but instead am selling my TJ and thought someone here might be interested.

Excellent shape 1998 Jeep Wrangler TJ Sport. Owned just one year. Road-driven, not taken offroad. I'm selling b/c my wife just doesn't like it (she tried to, though!), and we can't keep it after I get a different car.

Prior owner was a mechanical engineer in his 70s who upgraded it, took amazing care of it, then got bad knees and sold it.

I just replaced the thermostat last week at a local mechanic, and he said "it looks like you take fantastic care of this Jeep."

146,000 miles.
$9500 obo

I live in Asheville, NC.

- passenger side door handle has come loose from door.
- cigarette lighter not putting out power. hopefully just fuses.
- little bit of touch-up paint needed on hood. nothing serious.

That's really it, that I know of. I did some fixes when I bought it, and it's in all around great shape.
