You might want to check you state inspection codes because if it is like Mass, it wont pass with the tires sticking out further than the fenders. Would have to purchase wider fenders for it which isn't a big deal but just a pain if you want to get out on the road right after purchasing it. Over all it looks nice though. Good luck!
I just spoke with the seller in order to schedule a look at the vehicle. He said he bought it two weeks ago. (He failed to mention this during our first conversation.) He said he bought it and his wife flipped out.
I am definitely going to pull out a carfax on this.
Well I saw that Jeep on Friday and I would not buy it. Just too many questions.
It was pretty cool though. It was BIG. Much bigger than than it looks in the pictures, but I guess I just did not know what to expect. I almost tweaked a hammy trying to get into the thing, it was so high up. I am kidding a little, but in all seriousness, there is no way I'd be able to get my mother into that. Just too high up for her.
I didn't think the ride was all that rough, but on the highway it felt like it was all over the lane. I don't know if that was the suspension lift or just the way Wranglers drive, but I just didn't feel really good about it.
And did I mention that the guy just bought the thing two weeks ago and already wants to sell it?
Yeah, no way I would buy the thing.
I have a vehicle that is an eligible Cash for Clunker trade in. My top advisers are STRONGLY pushing me to use that. I test drove a VW Jetta and a Ford Fusion. The Fusion was a very nice car and the total cost to finance would be just over $17K. But I don't know, I just feel like I would be buying something that a guy with a wife and two kids is supposed to drive. And I am single.
Oh well, I am in full blown research mode right now. I'll keep you all posted in case anyone cares.
Best advice is find something stock or semi stock that you can build to your likes and not buy someone elses dream jeep. I personally don't want one lifted so high that you have to climb a rope to get into like my cousins bronco back in the day.
You seem to be torn between the cash for clunkers program and a Jeep. Why not pay cash for a cheap jeep you can have fun with AND get a fuel efficient vehicle for driving to work. Once I find some work I'm going to be putting money aside for a civic or something for driving to work and college because I live a hour from everything. =P
