First off it’s a 1994 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4.0. It’s not pretty, but it’s not meant to be. There’s a lot to list on this one so here goes:
Starting off with the interior, the tub has been bed lined. Has a full family roll cage plus the addition of a Rock Hard rock cage around the front window, over the cab area and behind the front seats for harness mounts. It has Corbeau Baja RS seats with 5-point harnesses, a Cobra 19 DX IV CB radio in-dash and wired to the factory dash speakers, and a MTX MUDSYS31 Bluetooth soundbar mounted on the rear cage bars.
Has a pair of Viair continuous duty air compressors pushing 5.5 cu ft/min and 2 gallon air tank mounted behind driver’s seat/console. Has a black Grant 13” steering wheel.
In place of the rear seat, there is a SmittyBuilt secure storage box mounted to the rear seat/seat belt mounts and accessible via the tail gate. The heater controls have been removed and a lighted 6-switch control panel for lights and compressor installed in its place with 12v adapter and USB charging ports.
T-handled shifter has a TeraFlex trottle control attached allowing for fingertip throttle manipulation. Center console has been replaced with a Tuffy padded steel security console.
Mechanical: Rebuilt engine installed 8⁄18, including new water pump, thermostat, radiator, hoses, distributor, cap, fuel and air filters, rotor and plugs/wires. Motor was hydrolocked in 11⁄18 and replaced with a used 4.0 from a 2004 TJ that had been totaled by Olympic 4x4 in Snohomish. Engine had 85k miles on it at that point.
Front differential and ring gear rebuilt on 11⁄18 by Jamie’s Transmission in Snohomish. K&N FIPK air intake installed 12⁄18. All engine seals (head gasket, valve cover gasket, front and rear main seals) and front diff seals replaced 5⁄19. Front diff bearings and seals replaced 5⁄19 by Randy’s Ring and Pinion. Transmission full rebuild 6⁄19 by Jamie’s Transmission New ProComp shocks in rear 9⁄18. New 95 amp alternator installed 10⁄19. New Pro Comp shocks in front 11⁄19.

New 1350 Diff flange, 1-ton UJoint and driveshaft in rear. Front is a Dana 30 with a spartan locker w/4:88 gears and a Riddler diff cover. Power steering has been upgraded to 1 ton power steering, with 2 steering stabilizer shocks (no death wobble can cruse at 60-65 no problem). The e-brake hardware was not installed with the Ford rear-end, so an electric Mico Brake was installed. Rear wheels have been upgraded to Disc brakes. Also has a Optima yellow top battery.
Exterior: Fully cloaked in Metal Cloak armor with 6” hi arched front fender flares, Metal Cloak sliders, 1⁄4” rear body armor and 6” Metal Cloak rear flares. Smittybuilt front stinger with new X2O 10k winch with synthetic rope. Smittybuilt XRC Gen1 rear bumper/tire carrier w/RockHard jerry can mount. 50” light bar over windshield, two LED spot lights on either side of front window, two more spot lights mounted above rear bumper.

Comes with full hard doors and tube half doors with 2 sets of mirrors. QuickFist clamps mounted to inside of tailgate for large tools (shovel, axe, crowbar, work light). New BesTop hood latches.
All maintenance records and after-market invoices are included. While it operates at highway speeds just fine, it’s not great for street due to the spooled rear axle, so this is not a good daily driver. Once it gets off road, it will go anywhere you point it.
Stock rear seat included if desired.
