Found a terrific deal on a 2001 SE 4cyl 5-spd with very low miles.
The only things I don't love about it are the lack of air conditioning and zip-up windows. I also don't love that it's a 4 cylinder, but the price is right and this will be accompanying my ~420hp M3. So no needs for power, just enough to have some fun in with the top off in summer, run errands, and get around in bad weather. My commute is all flat highways and short, so no worries about hills or high speeds. I'm thinking the 4 will be fine.
As far as the A/C and doors, 2 questions:
1. I can live without A/C, but theoretically what would it take to retrofit A/C from used parts?
2. Where/how can I source 2 black doors with crank windows? Is that something that's easy to come by? Couldn't find any on eBay.
Also, anything else I should be aware of before taking the plunge? I'm hoping to have someone in NYC check it out for me that knows Wranglers well and have posted another thread. Hopefully that covers everything.
Thanks all, and hope to become part of the community soon. Have always had a soft spot for these vehicles.
