Default Please help?

Okay AEV gentleman. I'm looking at a 1998 TJ to do a retro AEV conversion on. I haven't purchased a TJ in years and not sure on pricing. I wanna just confirm my conscious and make sure I'm not getting shafted if I buy. Please look at link and let me know ballpark. Thanks

Price seems decent. I would start with a 2005 or 2006 Rubicon. Best transmissions they offered. Also if you get a Sahara or less trim you will have a Dana 30 and will either have to replace or at least regear.

Price doesn't seem bad. What's your vision for a retro AEV? I only ask as most TJ parts are pretty rare such as TJ specific Wheels and an AEV non hiline hood

This would be for my wife and not intending to go crazy on it. If I could find the AEV parts it's a definite plus and I'm aware they are rare. Mostly trying to find a solid "pretty" jeep to start with. Here in NY it's hard to find a jeep that's not rusted out. This white one is from Florida and it's untainted
