Question Hi Everyone!

Hello everyone!

My name is Chris and I am starting to shop for a Jeep! Right now I have a 2001 Mustang and well she has been great to me I just want/need something for off roading and tons of snow. I am a college student in VT and lets just say my Mustang is not a practical option right now! With that being said funds are pretty tight and I will only have the money from selling my mustang for a jeep! I really don't know too much about them and was hoping you would all be able to help me out!

I have heard that the I6 is the better motor to get (Over the I4). Other than that I have little to no clue what sub-model is good and what not! Also I see a lot of Wranglers with over 100K, not that I am afraid of mileage I just do not know how reliable these motors are and how long they normally last!

Well I think that is a good start! I am not in a super big rush to sell since it is already winter and I can't have a car up here this year. Thanks!

They are great cars, sure have had my fair share of good moments in it but I really want something more practical! Gas mileage will be about the same!

Ah ok good to know, I knew the 6's were good! Any common problems or bad years/ect. that I should look out for?

If you can give us a general idea of what you will have to spend, we can give you a better idea of what you can afford and what to look out for in that range.

I will throw this out there in the interim...buy as close to stock as you can. Usually a stocker has led a quieter life (no hard core off roading or crawling) and by starting from stock, you will know exactly what you have. There is no second guessing what mods you have or if they were properly installed or maintained.

Ah good point! I am thinking from 7k to like 9k tops so a pretty good amount hopefully! From the little I have looked around the X's are all in the 11k range, whats the major difference with them?

Welcome Aboard! Never, ever refer to a Jeep as a car. Now another kitten is dead.
