    Ok this is a hard one for me! Not sure where to start! I have a 1998 wrangler tj /which is very much been apart of the family I am the 2nd owner only drove it to work and a little around town . Looking for advice on the best way to sell. I took an early retirement due to illness and am in able to fix her frame . I am sure most of you know, the late 90’s models didn’t Come with drain holes in the frame..So the frame has rusted and now broke on left rear near the axel. I drove it to the doctor and back it still drives I’m afraid I just can’t weld or do the fab work anymore.
    on to the good part it has 119,000 original miles
    New heads on engine,muffler,battery, custom tires and quadretec hard top with sun roof and a soft top frame, factory half doors and original everything else .. slight spots of rust but overall in great shape for a 98 I treated it like a baby.. any suggestions would be helpful and greatly appreciated

    Welcome @Jeep2020 ...other than the frame rust the TJ looks great and well maintained. Unfortunately the frame rust will significantly decrease resale value although TJs are a popular jeep. It probably won't pass local DMV inspection and may be deemed unsafe to drive depending on the severity. Post a few pics of the frame rust.

    3k is my asking price... I could part it out... if I had the room and tools I would keep it... Also.... I’ve was an extra in a few movies... and they used it for 2.... but it can only be seen in one called Donnybrook...

    FYI: TJ frame repair kits are available in case you decide to have the TJ repaired or you can recommend to the buyer. 97B1DDAB-DA79-4DF3-B57B-808789A35772.jpg
