Been reading these forums for a while in anticipation of purchasing a used jeep.
Waiting for bonus to come in to pull the trigger
As I will only be spending about 8 thousand will have to make some compromises to be sure. Trying to decide where those should be... Been looking lately at wranglers from the 1998-2006 year area.
My concern is what specifically is a good thing to look for as far as model setup.
Is the dana 44 axle really important if mostly mild offroading and lots of street are the main uses for the Jeep?
I would ask about the engine but have read enough to get the 4 liter for sure.
Anything else I should look specifically for other than rust and leaks
One of my other unknowns is whether it is worth it to pay more for a newer year model or if they changed minimally between the years.
Thanks for reading this and hope to talk lots more as I get a jeep and start upgrading.
