Have you guys seen my 4g63 Ram 50 for sale for $4700 on Facebook recently? About 100000 have tagged me in it. You wouldn't even recognize it.

I have not... Is it still as clean? Did they do silly weird things like stickerbomb or rusty-hood?

Lol! It's not mine. Just a car I was working on. My brother in law has owned it since 1999 and stopped driving it in 2014. It was taken apart, and he decided he wanted to sell it recently. Although I would have loved to buy it myself, those cars are way too rich for my wallet. So instead, I offered to assemble it for him and help him sell it. It sold on Sunday to a guy in NY, and it left my driveway today. It was sad to see it go, but my brother in law is happy.

Merry Christmas Eve everybody!

I had a little bit of a moment of weakness, and there is yet another car on the way. Picking it up next week.
Gotta get keys cut Saturday.

3KGT is waiting on a chassis donor. Rocker/floorpan rot is past where I want to deal with it.

Engine will go in the truck.

Car is a copart insurance auction, waiting on the broker to mail the paperwork...

It wasn't too bad, the only sticky point was having to do a bank wire transfer to pay, instead of e-check, money order, or credit card.

Its a 2006 grand cherokee limited. It hasn't been the smoothest start because jeep. But I'm slowly working through issues and there's a light at the end of the tunnel. I don't plan to do a whole lot to it other than make it more habitable since I do plan on spending weekends in it sometimes. Super clean and fully loaded minus 4wd which kinda sucks. Heated leather and power everything with sunroof though.

Also, this jeep has a 5.7L v8 under the hood. Should pull a trailer with a few bikes just fine and plenty of power to have fun with. Not quite bike speed but a pretty large step up from the toyota hahaha.

There aren't too many from what I've seen. Most jeeps around here are four wheel drive but the majority are 4.7 or v6. The 5.7's aren't very common and I'd rather have the extra power over 4wd I'll rarely use. I'm not sure if it even has a limited slip or not but I know how to find out hahaha
