Hi y'all, Where to begin? currently i own 2006 ford f150, i have always owned fords my whole life, but latetly i've wanted change and do somethign differentthan usual. So, i have thought about buying a jeep wrangler! i would like to stay above a 2002 model(standard trans). So, with that said and done, my question to y'all is, what are the pros/cons on having a jeep wrangler? But mainly what are common mechanical etc. problems with them? Thanks in advance
Because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. I suggest you check out these forum areas and post your questions there, I think you'll get a better response.
Welcome to the forum! I can say what the advantages and disadvantages are to the 2002 and newer models due to the fact that I drive an 88 wrangler yj, but many of my friends have tjs, and one has a jk, and she loves it, with that said i hope you find what your looking for and answers to your questions, this forum is very helpful.
I too went from an F-150 (2004 SuperCrew Lariat 4WD) to a 2006 TJ with the standard and inline six. There are times where I miss the amount of room I had in the Ford but then I think about the places I could never go in it just because of the wheelbase! So many places opened up to me with the Wrangler!

Welcome aboard! You can spend years reading this whole forum to answer your question lol. In part it comes down to your budget, what you intend to do with the rig, and which rig you pick. And about a million other things. Suggest perhaps taking some test drives at rigs you can find at dealers or for sale to start getting an idea. If you want creature comforts (coming from a 2006), definitely look for 2012+. As far as problems, that will vary on how well you maintain your rig in part and how you drive it, and if used, how the PO cared for it.
Pros: You can go just about anywhere that has enough clearance to let you through and do it topless (LOL I mean the Jeep!).
Cons: The stock radios and headlights all suck.
