My roommate bought this one-of-a-kind YJ Wrangler last year, not expecting to go to college. Now, he unfortunately has to sell it to come up with tuition money, but I know that there are plenty of diesel, manual loving enthusiasts on this site who might be interested in buying it. Here's what he has to say about it:
"This is my first vehicle I have owned. I bought it in the fall of 2013. Now I am going to college at Cornell University, a school I had planned on getting rejected from, and I need to sell the Jeep to pay for my tuition. It is a fully restored 1988 Jeep Wrangler YJ converted to a diesel. The frame was sanded and painted with a rust protectant coating and has 155,000 miles. The frame sits on 35" tires that are mounted on chrome aftermarket rims. Mounted on the frame is a fully restored body with silver paint job. The bumpers are also aftermarket pieces that are from the same set and also coated in mat black granular paint. Inside the cab there are 5 seats. Also, there is an aftermarket stereo with two 6" subs mounted right before the shifter. The doors are half that can be completed with either soft or hard upper doors, both come with the jeep. It also comes with a bikini top and a hard top.The engine is a 4BTA (b series, turbo, that is air to air after cooled) out of a bread truck and has around 130,000 miles on it. This jeep is standard. I have never had any problems with it over heating or anything. It has always ran strong and reliable. The transmission is out of a 2003 Dodge Ram that was totaled. The tranny has ran perfect since I purchased it. It does shift a little rough, but it handles the power well. It does not have air conditioning. It is great summer vehicle and does well in the snow, all while looking awesome. My Jeep has to go. I really need money to finance college, so please make an offer and maybe we will be able to work out a deal."

If you're interested, please consider buying the Jeep! My roommate's trying to get $13,000 for it, which would take a huge financial burden off his back. Even if you're not in the market for it, please spread the word and see if you have any friends who are interested! Did I mention that it's a manual? AND a diesel?
