Hoping to get a few pointers from the veterans...
I'm getting ready to pass my '00 TJ down to my daughter and am looking for a JK Unlimited for myself; I found an '07 Unlimited Rubicon that I took a quick look at the other day but haven't given it the "white glove and fine-tooth comb" treatment yet. The exterior looks excellent, it has both hard and soft tops, and it looks like it's been lifted either two or four-inches (not sure which). Wheels appear to be ProComp 7289, tires appear to be more of the street variety than off-road, which makes me think it was more for showing off than it was for off-roading.
It's black, which I like; manual trans, which I also like - the only reasons I haven't gone in to make the deal are the mileage and the fact that I don't know much about how the lift may have affected it. It has 50k miles on it which I wouldn't think twice about if it had the same motor my TJ has but I don't know how that v6 holds up over the miles.
What I'm looking for is some tips on anything I should look out for with regard to extra wear and tear that may have been caused by the lift - reading some of the other threads here it sounds like a lift adds some stress to the drivetrain, but I'm not sure if there are some specific things to look out for. If anyone has any thoughts or experience with high mileage on the V6, I'd appreciate hearing that as well.
Oh yeah, the asking price is just under 24,000.
