Considering Wrangler models

Ford Ranger will be paid off this year. Keeping the Ranger and Wrangler next as second/first vehicle. New? Or used? These are the questions among a million others. Used to off road many moons ago. Any advise out there?

Welcome to the forum; you'll find lots of good info here.

How much money are you looking to spend? Wranglers hold their value extremely well so I would try and get new if possible. Go to jeep.com and build the Wrangler with the options you want and see if it's in your budget. If not, you're looking at used. I would strongly suggest getting a 2012+ b/c of the Pentastar engine and better tranny.
