Just got this home last night and I am now trying to determine what to do first.
cousin says finish cutting the roof off and drive the piss out of it. I want to part it out to pay for Eagle repairs.
Has a strong running 4.0HO with 201k on the Odometer
Brakes are a bit touchy last few inches of a stop and try and lock up.
NSS seems to be causing issues. Didn't want to start after putting gas in it, had to shift it out of and back into Park.

cut that top off, you will have a floppy xj. they are unibody also. the roof is part of the ridgidity of the chassis.

That's what I was telling him.. Not worth the time or money to finish cutting it and then securing what is left.
But is seems mechanically sound.. If I can't sell the 231 I guess I can take the motor and transfer case and mate it to my SR4 tranny.

If you start parting, I need that center console lid & the 3rd brake light. Screws are stripped on the console in Bleep & the 3rd brake light is busted where it screws on (IF I get it, I need the screws too, lost mine). Factory stereo? What is it & functioning? Bleep's is dead AM/FM - Cass.

Console lid is broke, Aftermarket stereo(non functioning) CD. I can get you the 3rd brake light no problem. No idea if it's usable. Could be a loose wire..

I'm going to see if the stereo bar across the back roof will fit in my eagle...

I hope it doesn't come to it, but if something ends up no good about the engine I just picked up I'd be calling you in a heartbeat about that Engine!

The NSS issue is common on higher mileage rigs. I jumpered mine till I had time to take it apart and clean it. You may be able to cure the brake issue by taking the drums off and banging the dust out.
