and yea Ibuildembig your right i drove that 93 with 35s and it felt like i needed a push to get started. i had learned how to drive on a 5 spped civic and a 6 speed wrangler and now frive a 6 speed civic si but i got into that car like i have never driven before. now as for toady he is asking 4600 for this 95 with 140k what should i them hill ill take it for?
ok so i drive it and looked at it. REALLY LIKE IT. but he is asking 4600$ and there is a crack in the headlight, one running board is cracked and im going to need new tires. and possibly a muffler, what do you guys this is a good price to start with?
The '97 looks like a nice clean Jeep. Did you check everywhere for rust? The $4700 isn't out of line I'd start at $3500 and work with the guy if it's in good shape. Can't see the tires. You should be able to come together somewhere between.
so the search continues and i found 2 more to debate with, a 02 with 89000 miles 6cyl 5 speed BUT it has a salvage title due to theft( is that safe to buy?) and another 2000 wrangler 4cyl with 100000 miles 5 speed. the price difference is within a 1000$.
ok and 1 more question im not going to be doing off roading at least i dont think i will, so am i going to miss the power of a 6cyl if i dont get one?
It's a Jeep no power to miss lol My 4 banger won't beat it's own shadow up a hill but a lot of that is the 32x11.50x15's on it. It is great offroad. On the highway you'll have to shift on uphills. I gave $6500 for it a few months ago. If those 2 are within $1000 there;s something wrong somewhere. Either ones way to high or the other is too low.
ok so i really dont know that much so what does that mean? did you go look at it?
For example, he tried to tell me that the D44 only came in the Rubicon (its was an option in all 4.0's) also he said adding beefier shafts would make it strong (not true, just puts stress on the gears) That kinda stuff. Just BSing me. I did not look at it.

I know people do it them selves...Not sure about cost or how hard it is.

I too am in the market and noticed prices are all over the map. I've seen some basically stock 87 & 89's for as high as $3500 and then some 91-95 everywhere from $1795-$5000.
Good luck with your search and keep us posted with how you make out! Make sure you check underneath, not sure if rust is a problem where you live, but 2 older ones I looked at around here both had rusted frames in the back (holes), and rusted out floors and mounts.
