Decided to list my “LJ” that was owned by a friend up until recently, he needed to sell it and I was planning to have my Brute sold but being I have both I figured I would list them and see what sells first. This Jeep has been in my family since new and my buddy I just got it back from was the only owner outside of my family. Jeep has been built many times over but the last and current version was completed in mid 2020. It has approx 1300 miles on it since the rebuild but that will go up slightly as I do drive it some. It has been stored in a garage for the last 14 years when not in use.
It started life as a 2000 Jeep Wrangler TJ sport, and has been featured in many magazines over the years. It was in JP as the “Every Man TJ”, I have many copies of the magazines and can provide some with the sale. This jeep needs nothing and would take all over CO and UT at any moment. It will clear 42s and some photos have 42s on it but currently has 40s that have about 400 miles on them.

WB is 113-114” I think but could be shortened up a bit on 40s, however since trails are dug out for 118-138” wb vehicles as of late, this thing just drives up stuff.
Truly is a great jeep and a blast to drive up and down any trails and still take to Cars n coffee or just to the office. Needs nothing like I said, runs 180-200 deg every day. I had every intention of keeping this one for my kid to drive some day, but I may not actually sell my Brute and I do not need 2 jeeps I don’t use.
