2000 Wrangler good deal?

Got a question for you guys see what y'all think about this deal... been looking for a jeep for awhile now.. and just havent found the right 1...
Found this Jeep yesterday woundering how good a deal it really is...
2000 Jeep Wrangler SE has the I6 manual with 90k miles brand new bestop on it theres no major dmg on body..
Deal would be my 2000 dodge neon es (128k mile 4cylinder) + $2000 what u guys think?

I will take it. avarage price for the00 Neon $2,500 and for the
00 Jeep its about $10,000

I did something similar last year, I traded my 2000 Honda Prelude with 70k for a 2000 Sahara and I was even @ the dealership.
What they paid me for the Honda was the Same as what they where asking for the Jeep.
I couldn't be happier.

All SE models had the 4 cylinder. Are you sure you popped the hood and counted 6 plug wires? Do you have a VIN number?

Good point.
But still a good deal even if it is a 4 banger, I think.

I agree. Considering the cost of his neon is ~3500 bucks.

get the VIN number. A simple phone call and you can run a carfax on it. You will be able to see exactly what is in it.

no 4 cylinder can be geared for 35s without new axles. No way it gets 18. Maybe without a speedo correction.

x2

if you want some +33" tires you should buy a 6cyl.
and the i6 also makes much more fun.

Don't buy the 98 wrangler you can get a better deal. I bought a 98 sport 4.0 and 5 speed for $3500 this summer. Jeep has 160,000 miles and runs great. About the 35s and 4 banger forget about it. Get a 6 cyl jeep.
