Another repro I spotted today when I was having my jeep was getting some minor works done up, seller quoting 4.5 lac which he says negotiable as far as originality is concerned...No single part is original Cj5/7.

Hi! All,

If you have been thinking why the sudden silence on my passion well.. here's the reason --

I had seen a orange CJ5 with an original petrol engine but in 2WD mode some time back @ a local dealer close to my place when queried i was quoted 4.5 Lakhs.
This Jeep went missing after a few days, this was way back in 2010 maybe about 6 months now. You ask so ??
I happened to visit this place again & was made to understand that there were lot of enquirers for the Jeep & the prospective customers were quoting less than a Lakh so the owner of the Used Car dealership took it home to avoid unwanted queries.
So whatz next ? well am set to meet the owner soon (how soon ? no idea ) & in the mean time am trying to loop in friends / relatives who know the owner so i have a better chance to get it home hopefully @ a good price.

I will get the Jeep validated from all the gurus here & Fazal Sir who is a treasure trove on Jeep-tech before i make the final call.
There will be some delay in the entire process but am confident that this dream will be turning into reality :-)
Wish me All the Luck possible.

Thanks & Regards,
Kumar
