Just joined this forum. I've been trying to buy a jeep but have had some bad experiences. The first one I liked turned out to be a salvage title. The second one had some serious leaks from the axles. The third has a rebuilt tranny. I guess I got some questions for new buyers -
1) I know suspension is preferred over body lifts, but what if the jeep has 2" suspension lift and 1" body lift? One of my friends warned me against buying jeeps with body lifts - I guess I just wanted more info on the "hybrid"
2) What happens if the original owner installed a suspension lift the day he got the new jeep? Does it have any long term problems? I was again told this can result in major leaks, etc.
3) I own a car right now with a rebuilt tranny and was told that once its rebuilt, it'll be never the same as the original factory shipped one. Any comments?
This is the one I've been looking at lately: 2005 jeep wrangler X
Let me know what you guys think. Thanks for answering all the questions and I apologize if I didn't post in the right forums.
