The jeep runs and drives, 4x4 works, hi/low seem to work, headlights all work, windshield folds down as it should. Speedometer and fuel gauge do not work, I have the components to make it though. There is a small leak from the rear main seal which is extremely common and almost impossible to rid 100% of in these old jeeps, I did add some oil thickener to the motor oil to reduce the leak. The jeep also does not have a soft top, I did not purchase it because I did not intend to drive it in the rain, at all, they are about $500 new.

That's about everything, it look's great and is ready for parades and car shows
