Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Jeep is a six-door, eleven-passenger, convertible-top 4X4. I’ll bet you didn’t expect to read that this morning! Once you pick your jaw up off the floor over so unexpected a combination of attributes, you can decide if paying its asking price is also a stretch.
Do you know the difference between getting an FJ and getting a BJ? An FJ’s for off-roading, while a BJ’s for off-loading. Ha, ha, ha, I just thought that up. I’m hilarious. The owner of Friday’s 1977 Toyota FJ-40 is hopefully laughing all the way to the bank as his former plow horse 4X4 came away with a solid 74% Nice Price win. Heh, heh, heh, off-loading...
What is it they say, laughter is the best medicine? Actually, Best Medicine is a song by the Stray Birds, but if you need to put a smile on your face then just check out this dealer-offered 2004 Jeep Wrangler 6-door convertible. It’s so over the top zany that I don’t see how it could engender anything other than a grin.
Now, it should be noted up front that this Jeep, while apparently still a 4X4, is not going to be tackling the Rubicon any time soon. Nor is it technically a limousine as there’s no bar, disco lights, or L-shaped lounge inside. It also lacks the typical huge sunroof through which drunken revelers can shout/puke/flash a boob.
What you do have is what looks to be a professionally done conversion to six doors and almost twice that many seats. It’s sort of the Human Centipede of Jeep-dom, only not with humans or the whole mouth to butt thing. Come to think of it, it’s nothing like a human centipede. Forget I said that.
Who did this? Well, the dealer - Extreme Motorsports, where this Jeep seems to be the only remotely even extreme anything on the lot - doesn’t say. I’m guessing that it came from Back Country Journal (scroll down past all the T-shirts and hats), but even their stuff don’t look quite like this one.
Whomever made it, it appears to be pretty slick, although the top looks like it probably requires an entire jamboree-full of Boy Scouts to erect or de-rect. Along with its dauchshund-ification, this Jeep comes with all the regular Wrangler accoutrements, a 190-bhp 4-litre six and 4-speed automatic, radio, and a HVAC that I bet now struggles to accommodate the folks in the back rows.
The ad notes that the silver over grey eleven-seater has only 37,000 miles on the clock and that the dealership hablas Espanol! How convenient. Hell, they’ll even finance it for you. The question of course is what the eff would you ever do with a six-door, eleven-seat stretch-convertible Wrangler, which honestly sounds like something the Cat in the Hat would drive.
Let’s not delve into hypotheticals here, as obviously unless your name is Duggar you probably wouldn’t even have a passing interest in something like this. I mean, you don’t own a wild animal park do you, or a dwarf who keeps shouting de plane, de plane?
With all that in mind, do you think this stretch Jeep is worth its $16,995 asking price? Or, does that seem like a total long shot?
