Help on my new "used" Jeep purchase...

Okay, so for about the past year, I've been really, really wanting a Jeep. I love going to the beach and going off the beaten path on trails and what not and my 1992 Chevrolet S10 just isn't cutting it anymore. I've gotten her stuck way too many times. I'm sad to move on from her since she was my first truck, but I'm more than excited to purchase my new Jeep. Anyhow, I've narrowed my search down to 2 Wranglers.

One is a 2006 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited...

The next is a 2008 Jeep Wrangler X...

Now, of course I'll be adding tons of upgrades to my Jeep. But I'm really leaning towards the 2008 since it has less miles and already has some of the upgrades I'm looking for such as aftermarket tires and a winch kit, along with added lights.

Anyhow, I'd love everyone's input before I jump into buying my first baby since I don't know too much about Jeep's at the moment. All help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks y'all!

Welcome to the forum!!! The 06 is a 2door and the 08 is 4 door. Depends on what you want to do with your Jeep and if you have family along on your outings. There is limited room in the door. The 08 would be my choice and lots of room. The new JKs are extremely capable pure stock.

89 2.5 TBI, 4" RC lift, 1" Booms, SYE, Adams Driveshafts front and rear, Ford 8.8 with 4:88s, BFG 33X12.50X15, and a ton of other stuff.
