I Sold The Jeep
Well I sold my Jeep last night, its a very long story and would be a few pages worth of reading if I went through and told every detail, Ill save the details unless someone really wants to know...

Basically I was having ALOT of issues with the Jeep some were electrical and some were machanical. The jeep was out of factory warranty and I purchased an extended warranty when I bought it used but since I lifted it and had aftermarket parts on it the dealer that I took it to basically voided the drivetrain portion of the extended warranty, so I had no coverage. I had major issues with the front axle being siezed in the differential and I was told I would be looking at $3700 out of pocket to have it replaced. I also would have to pay labor rates to have the air bag module reprogrammed and a few other things... I decided that while the Jeep still had low millage for its age ( 2005 with 25K ) that I would unload it. Shortly after trying to trade it in on a used car I was informed by a dealer that pulled a carfax on it that it had a dark dirty history before I bought it. After a little research I found out that I had no real way of doing anything about being sold a dirty vehicle without long term and very exspensive legal battles.

More then one dealership offered me between $7,000 & $8,500 for the Jeep which was an insult since I still owed a little over $12K on it, I took it to Carmax and they offered me $10,500 which was still low and left me with negative equity but it was alot better then the other offers so I sold it to them and wrote them a check for $2400 and change to pay it off and forget about it.

I had alot of good times and alot of fun with my Jeep, It treated me pretty well but once I started having these issues I knew it was time to let it go and forget about it. I learned a hard lesson but I'll chalk it up to experience!

When I sold the Jeep I let it go with the lift and almost new tires and wheel spacers but I took everything else I could off with plans to sell the stuff, I will list the Items I have for sale here so incase anyone that reads this is interested they can contact me about buying the items. I know this is not the for sale section and I with post the items in a thread in that section also but I figure more people will see/read this thread.

Here are the items I have to sell, I'm open to offers but no lowball offers I have alot of money wrapped up in this stuff so I'm not going to give it away...

- Front Shackle Mounts with 3/4" Shackles - These were custom built for me by Saguaro 4X Components I helped design these with the builder and I was the first to have these.

- Rear Bilstein HD Shocks - SOLD

- Rear Hitch - This was never used to tow, it was only used to hold a hitch mount D-ring shackle mount

- Smittybilt Hitch Mount D-ring Shackle with D-ring

- Stillen Headlight Covers - SOLD

- Plastic Engine Splash Shield

- Stock Muffler and Tailpipe - This only has 19K miles on it and has no damage but the tailpipe was cut off so they could get it off when doing the custom exhaust job.

- 2 Brand New K&N Oil Filters

Please PM me if your interested in any of the above items. I will post a thread In the for sale section which will include pictures of each item.

This forum has been a really great place, I've learned alot and everyone on here has been helpful so even though I no longer have a Jeep I will still check the forum and give advice or help when I can.

Re: I Sold The Jeep
Have you talked to your insurance company? My wife bought a used Jeep from a local Jeep dealer and after 2 years of owning it HER insurance company contacted her and told her about the salvage title her Jeep once had and how it was retitled as a normal vehicle before she bought it. HER insurance company bought the jeep from her. They claim they "had" to buy her vehicle from her. She got every dime she paid for it.

Not sure if this is what happend to you, but it may be an option.

Good luck! Hope everything works out in your favor!!

Sorry to hear about the problems. Enjoyed wheeling with you and Brian. Shame we couldn't all get out there 1 more time...bad timing I guess. Good luck with the replacement for the WK.

Re: I Sold The Jeep
K&N filters are for the 3.7L sorry Scott!

As for the Jeep it actually had an Odometer Rollback before the selling dealer ever got it and one of the dealers that I was gonna trade it at pulled a carfax and found the issue. I never thought that it could be a bad history car. I sucked it up and took it as a loss and let it go when I had the chance.

Mike I also enjoyed wheeling with you guys but after these issues started showing up I had to do something so I sold it. Thanks for everything, ill still poke my head around every so often but no much since I don't own a WK anymore. I assume you saw the stuff I'm selling if your interested in anything let me know.
