well i wanted a willy lol

Well I work over in n.d. and I wanted a toy I guess. I am looking at a 1993 jeep wrangler sahara edition with a 4cyl in it. The dealer just re did the camshaft(brand new). There is no rust on it. For 4k. It has 153k miles on it. I am posting it on a phone so I have no idea how to upload a picture. Its awesome looking. Soft top back row seats. Doors. Good wheels. After market bumpers (round pipe style) and someone put a radio in it. My question is what do I need to look at/how much should I pay etc. Was listed at 5k but he said he would take 4k

Price seems ok...you gotta look at the tub and the drivetrain tho. Make sure it goes into 4x4 no problem and such. What I did when I bought mine was took a nice strong magnet to make sure nobody tried hiding rust with some bondo and a quick paint job. $4k doesn't seem too bad. I paid $3500 for mine with 170k on it but that was 2 years ago.

Yeah, price seems good. But definitely crawl underneath and search for rust really close. If it is rust-free or close then that sounds like a good buy.

I honestly couldn't tell you, I don't wanna say no but it is a higher model. You could run the vin dogbosser and see what the original equipment was that it came with from the factory I suppose.

Sahara: which came standard with the 4.0l 242cid engine, offered the most available options, including body color fender flares, matching side steps and alloy wheels. More saharas seem to have come with an automatic transmission and air conditioning than any other trim package.

Dumb question. Does the 93 have a carb on it or no? And pros and cons of the year?

I read some have carbs on them. Is that a modification you can do? Is it better?

Do you think its wise to trade my 1996 dodge ram 1500 club cab 318 with a rebuilt motor /tranny and transfer case for the jeep? My truck doesn't have any rust on it and runs great.

probably not..sounds like you have already spent the time and money to make your truck a dependable daily driver.. you know that is not the case with most older vehicles

Very true, I sold my 91 because it started burning so much oil. I was afraid the motor was gonna pop.

The bad about my truck tranny iffy and needs a few lil tinkers more that is $$$. The jeep is cheaper insurance. I haven't had insurance in 6 months (working out in n.d. and use bosses truck) finally back in mn and better gas mileage. Idk big question. Haha

Not trying to buck the system, but I have a 2.5L, and if I was looking for a YJ right now, I would wait for a 4.0L or verify when he told you it had the 4, that he didnt meal 4.0 Liter instead of 4 cylinder.
