2005 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited LJ
Solid, rust-free LJ that was purchased in 2011 from the original owner in California. It’s been in New Mexico ever since. Never been in snow or salt. I’ve put on about 11,000 miles in 12 years for a total of 133k miles currently.
This Wrangler is built to handle above-average trails but is also roadworthy. I don’t recommend it as a daily commuter because of the off-road suspension but I have driven it on trips on the interstate.
Bulletproof 4.0 straight six engine is tight with no leaks. AC and all switches, gauges, and lights work. Perfect hardtop and hard doors. Full bikini top and header rail included with sale.

Areas of Attention:
Heater core may need service soon
Slight wetness on PS hose, no drips yet
Perpetual check engine light - all O2 sensors out of voltage spec. I replaced all four but the light stays on and the ECM still says they’re slightly out of voltage spec. No driveability or fuel economy issues for 10 years. Research says it’s an issue with the computer. I stopped caring.
Torque converter seems to drain down when the Jeep is parked for more than a few days. Won’t move when you first shift out of park until you rev the motor up and the pump moves the oil. Takes about 4 seconds.
Previous owner removed the carpets and rhino lined the tub. It’s still that way.
This has been a great Jeep and I’ve always taken care of it. It’s been garaged ever since I’ve owned it so the paint and interior are in good shape. I’ve had many adventures in it, from the old Chile Challenge trails in Las Cruces to the San Juan mountains in Colorado and even Moab a few times. It never broke and handled trail well. I bought a new rig this year and don’t need two rigs. It’s time has come.
Jeep is in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Willing to transport up to a hundred miles or so. Can consider further for mileage but probably no more than 500 miles from Las Cruces.
