Buying first Jeep

To start off, I am new to this so sorry if i say something wrong.

Don't know which one to pick.

First one...
2003 Jeep Wrangler X
81,000 miles
V6 5-speed
35in BFG mud terrains
Lift Kit(don't know what kind it is, i think its a 4in lift)
2 soft tops
Only been offroad once
hard doors
matching spare
Nerf Bar
Custom front bumper
Tubular rear bumper
Price $13,000


Second one...
2000 Jeep wrangler
85,000 miles
V4 auto
35 in wheels
4in lift kit
half doors
soft top
$8,900

P.S. Are the price right for these jeeps? What should i look for when i go looking at them.

Thanks for the help.

I think you'll be disappointed with both if neither are set up right with 35" tires. Lots of extra modifications need to be made. Gearing in the diffs, steering, and axles are just the beginning.

i think the 2003 tj is the way to go. the 4cyl jeep is not worth your time they dont have the power to turn larger wheels and tires. btw welcome

if the jeep is geared for 35s then you should be fine.
