2000-High Mileage

Poated on another site and got some strange answer's. Maybe they were just jokeing with me.
Looking to buy first jeep, both 2000, 6cyl, manual, hard top, one with a/c.
Mileage 81,000 and 97,000, asking price 10,900 and 11,900.
Both appear to have been well cared for. No damage and clean carfax report.
The mileage seems high for a Jeep but then again what do I know. Purchased my son a CJ7 when is was in high school many years ago and always wanted one so am going to trade my Toyota L/C off.
Any special thing to look for, good or bad. Thanking you in advance.

I recently bought a 97 with a 100k on it for 6500 the only problem I have had with it was the throttle positioning sensor took care of it my self car still runs strong... my advice take the car to a good mechanic if you are unsure which one to buy it's better to spend a 100 bucks for diags and be sure reather that 10k and be sorry

These motors will run a long time and take a beating. Don't let higher mileage scare you. If you find the Jeep you want, go for it. I don't know much about the TJs, but I know that you likely wouldn't be sorry.

Depends what you want to do with your Jeep. If you are just going to use it to get around town, and the occasional trip to the hunt camp, all you have to do is make sure you get a 4.0L motor. If you are going to be building a rig to wheel and are planning on running tires larger than 31", then you should make sure you have the Dana 44 option in the rear unless you want to swap axles later. This option wasn't available with an auto transmission, so you will be limited to the manual, and you have to look under the Jeep to tell, unless the owner has the original window sticker (and even then I am not sure it's listed as one of the options, sorry). I can't really think of any common weak point that you should look for on the TJ's though. And just to reiterate what Amerijeep said, don't worry about the higher mileage. These motors go forever! Good luck with your search, and welcome to the insanity!

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

It's really nice to get answer's that one can understand instead of fun made at me for asking the question. You all have a nice one.

That won't happen here. If fun was poked at people for asking questions, I would have ridiculed right on out of here by now. This is a great forum with a great attitude. I hope the moderators aren't reading this though. They might get the 'big head'.

I'm skeerrred of you.

Don't know boys, but 81 and 97 thousand seems a lot of miles for 10 and 11 thousand dollars. I would think you could find an 01 or 02 with lower miles for that price.

The dana44 did infact come with the auto or the other way around depending how you looked at it, in some early production years, 98, 99 I know of, then in 00 and 01 things got odd and I think then you could only get it with the dana 35.

As for high miles, as already stated.. the 6 and even the 4 do well. My current 00 has 135k miles on, But with anything money related have it checked out, better to spend a couple hundred vs 10k then find out you have an issue. Also I would get one with AC as its nice to have.

Good to know! I know that when I was looking with a buddy of mine in 2000, we couldn't find one with the 44 and an auto, and the sales weasel told me we couldn't get it with that combo, but I guess they changed it after the first couple of years! Well, I have learned my new thing for the day, I am going back to bed!

Yup, cuz my 99 is a 4.0/Auto/D44.
