Noob looking for some advice from the pro Jeepers...

Hello All,

When I was a kid my family always did the local Jeep Jamboree. Since then my family has not had a Jeep to participate in them. I am looking for a jeep that I can work on to start going again.

I have found a 99' Wrangler Saraha that has the inline 6, with the 4.0L, 5-speed manual. Everything looks stock on it. The only down side I see is it has 225K miles. Is this something I should be worried about?

I can pick it up for $4500 is this a good deal?

Thank you all

I'm no pro, but as long as everything else is in good shape I wouldn't worry about that mileage.

You know something will eventually give out on it so as long as you have a little money set aside for repairs...

I would consider the deal but also try to talk them down a bit.

Talk them down a bit and if you end up buying it then do a full tune up: spark plugs, wires, rotor, distributor, fluid changes and you should be good. I'd take it to a mechanic to make sure everything's sound as well. Basic maintenance and a car will go forever. Good luck!

Way too many miles unless you plan on turning it in to a dedicated off-road vehicle. If planning any daily driving, look for less miles.
