Thanks for the interest. The interior is excellent. No kids. Daily driver and road machine for the 500 mile drive from LA to RENO. Always performed great, up until "crap-out." Wheels a bit ragged on the edges from curb rash, but easily cleaned up. Front bumper cover cracked and needs to be replaced. Original owner. Sorry about pictures. I am in Kansas City and will be going up to Nevada Tuesday to arrange to get Jeep away from dealer. I will take some pictures,but last time I saw it the truck was dirty from their lot (it was clean when it was towed there). THANKS AGAIN EVERYBODY!

The motor overheated without warning. I live in Los Angeles and the truck is in Nevada. Chrysler wanted 3-7 hundred dollars to tear it down and 3-700 hundred dollars to put the motor back together at my cost, just to determine cause of failure. Complete BS. Thermostat was found to be frozen shut. Severe heat. I have not had the time or money to move further. I am having the JEEP towed to my house in Reno. Assume complete rebuild.

Darn phone. I am posting from my android and it is tough. I am heading back to LA where I live. I also own a home in reno, just to be clear ably what is going on. I may just let the jeep sit on the garage in Nevada for the winter and deal with this in The spring.

OK evrybody I am back. The truck turns over and runs. Lots of blue smoke out through the exhaust. racket from timing chain tensioner and probably valves. The good news is the engine is seized up. I would still assume complete re-build, but won't know about the condition of parts until the motor is disassembled. There you have it. I don't believe I mentioned it but the truck was tagged at low speed in the rear last year, yielding scratched bumper cover and slight ding to exhaust tips. All replaced by Golden Hammer here in Santa Monica...back up sensers etc. I wanted to list this because it will probably come up on car fax. I have had alot of interest. Dealer in Glendale offered me over what I am asking, but I would like to keep it in the forum. If nobody steps up with a serious offer I will keep it and replace with 426.
