For those interested, the 97 soft-top is up for sale. Too many toys, not enough time, yadda yadda

Here are the details,

1997 AA yellow softtop
58,000 ish miles

Eaton supercharger
OME springs
RockWare suspension (trailing arms, increased travel, etc)
Rancho adjustable shocks
5 Brand new BFG tires (33's)
Detroit true track and lockright lockers front and rear
SafariGuard differential covers
Heavy duty axels
New tuffy center console
Custom front bumper, with integrated winch and winching points
Superwinch 9K winch w/ synthetic rope
Hella lights on front bumper
Brand new Badger Softtop
Factory fiberglass hardtop with custom headliner
Bikini top
Surrey top
Spare softtop (kinda worn, would be a great halfcab top)
Air Conditioning
6 disk CD
Custom subwoofer encloser (not installed)
Entire interior rhinolined (just hose it out when needed)
CB radio
flowmaster 50 series muffler
rocksliders (original sills available)

Transfer case was just replaced (4 months ago) due to noise, transmission was rebuilt at the same time. (LONG Long story) New U joints in both drivshafts.

Factory repaint in 2000 (rust warranty repair) of entire truck. Body is in perfect shape.

New catalytic converters and H pipe under factory emmissions warranty about 1.5 years ago

The truck is honestly in very nice shape, no complaints, runs nice and strong. I've got a lot of the original parts if your inclined to go back to stock with it. Right now it doesnt fit my lifestyle, so it is for sale.

What does it need? Front brakes in 3-4K miles and a new synthetic winch rope (the current one is starting to fray)

Asking 33,700, which seems to be a fair and honest price. then again, you tell me. <GRIN>

Truck is in Boston, but I'm willing to ship if necessary.

If your interested, I'll snap some pictures and forward them your way.

Private email is probably best. [email protected]

forgot to mention

I'm sure its not a deal breaker, but I forgot to mention I've also got:

1) Custom angled roll cage bars for use when the top is off (replace the rearmost cage hoop over the rear door)

2) Factory service manual, factory wiring manual, factory electrical manual, various books etc.

3) most of the records from new.

Also should mention the blower was only installed in the last 25K miles or so, compression across all cylinders is good, and when testing the Air fuel ration on the dynometer things stay comfortable rich at all RPM's (the blower is properly tuned)

New 02 sensors less than 2K miles ago, just put in a nuel fuel filter this morning.

Thanks again, no more interruptions from me.
