I have a 2005 Wrangler Unlimited Sport (2 door) with 111k miles on it. 4x4, 3 inch lift, 33" tires. I was planning to sell this summer or so but could let it go earlier if the deal is right (Around $10k).
I dont want to sell as its been a ton of fun (bought when I was a freshman in college), but its getting to be time for a more practical vehicle and I cant justify two vehicles and a boat. Located in Fort Pierce but can meet in Lake Wales on a weekend if needed. Let me know if you're interested in pictures or more info.

Sounds fun though.

There is a guy on here selling a beautiful 97 f250 2wd crewcab. It would be the ideal first truck. Look for it on here. If it was 4x4 I would have already driven down to get it. This thing looks like a stock show truck.
