Hey I'm Chris from Grass Lake MI and I just got my license and I want a jeep wangler for my first jeep!! Two buddies have Cherokees (one of them has 35'' 12''wide tires with 4'' lift and other is stock) And I love to go Off-Roading with them!! Fun Fun!
With me being 16 and not having a real steady job I am a tad hesitant about getting one cause of mpg and it turning into a money-pit with the tires and lift kit that are 'required'.
Looking at craigs list for jeeps and I am finding some but most are 3k+. I CAN NOT spend over 3,500 and 3k is kinda pushing it.
I have heard that wanglers just dont die and thats why the bluebook is so high, Is that it?
What does adding a lift kit and bigger/wider tires do to mpg? Please explain in a way that a 5 year old can get.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Or anything that i should be on the lookout for when buying one?
