    Run far away.It sat at a shady used car lot here in Colorado Springs for months and has been moving west over the last year.It's a RK 7up rework and a poorly done one at that.Looked like a 3 year old stick welded it,scary just to look at up close.They had it for something like $14,000 when in CO.

    One look at the front setup and anyone with any common sense would run away from it, so much done the wrong way you could never make it right
    Actually if you look up " Wrong way to do a SFA KJ " this will be one of the ones that shows how not to

    I'm not interested in buying it, I just had not seen this one on any of the forums. If it was built correctly would $10,000 be a good price?
    Thanks for the link ryanee182.

    If it was built right $10k would be giving it away.

    What "IS" wrong with it ? Just look at the welds, look for example how everything is mounted on the front axle, in the rear they didn't even remove the old LCA mounts in front
    The list could be 1000 words at least
    It is a cluster **** of just cheap / bad welds/parts/planning/building everything
    You would basically remove everything that was done and start completely over to try and even make it safe enough to drive

    I like what the guy posted
    This truly has been built for off road use, it drives ok on the road also but it really is an off road machine
    Super low miles is nice, the vechile is like new inside and outside
    *There is nothing you need to do with this except Drive it !!!!
    :happy175::happy175::happy175::happy175::happy175::happy175::happy175::happy175::happy175::happy175:

    so Techman now is the time to buy this "VECHILE" :whip:

    Yeah coilovers are not that great unless you have them setup correctly and use soft coils.The KJ needs heavy front coils so no real flex advantage by just installing longer coilovers.

    In the picture of the rear spring, it looks like it is almost off the upper bump stop. Or is it an optical illusion?
