Another SE Michigan Newbie (sort of)

More east central I suppose
In no newbie to forums, I post pretty frequently on G6 Performance • Portal

anyway, don't currently have a jeep yet.
Would like to get more information and inside perspective to what I need to look for when purchasing a Jeep.

I don't know the do's and dont's of them, what to look for and whats good.

From my research over the past 3 months is that the straight 6 is just about bulletproof, correct me if I'm wrong.

Anyway, I will continue to look through the threads and dig up info, but if any of you are feeling nice, PLEASE throw some helpful links my way!

also, just to kind of give an idea as to what im looking for,
something like this
Cars For Sale: Car Details -

Looking for the larger wheels and tires
thats about as much as I can spend right now, maybe a little more but not much.
It has the 4 cylinder yes, but if its durable enough it will suit my needs.

Not going to be getting into rock crawling or anything of that nature, more or less the "more than average" off road trail, lots of sand dunes... that sorta thing.

Welcome to WF.
Thats a good looking jeep. If I was you I'd find a six cylinder though. MPG's are not that much different between the four and six. With larger tires you WILL like it better.
Just getting to work is an adventure.

Welcome! I guess I'll use my imagination. The Jeep ad was pulled from Autotrader.

Go drive a 4cyl , than drive a 6 cyl and you'll know exactly why you should wait. There is quite a difference, but if its a 4cylinder thats necessary to own a jeep; then jump in that 4 banger and enjoy life. Good luck.
