4 cylinder ftl, find one with at least a 6 and a d44 if you want to be truly satisfied

Doesn't blow my hair back at all, especially with a 4 cyl. in it.

Not into A/T's at all either.

Not to bad for a daily driver, or weekend worrior. Get a 4cyl or a 6cyl depending on your future plans for the jeep. i dont think that's a bad price, low ball him and see if he'll sell

My first Jeep was a 4 banger... never again. It was a daily driver and could not even make the limit on the x-way. If it is for mostly offroading, it can be built, and you will get by.
But trust me on this one... get a 6 cyl. if at all possible.
The one you posted does not seem to be a screamin deal to me.

Yeah, your right with 31's or smaller, you would get by pretty well. I had 33's and I wasn't going to re-gear it with a tiny motor & axles. What was worse was the AX-5 tranny, what a crappy tranny that was. I did OK with it offroading, but it just sucked on the x-way tryin to push that brick down the road.

I drive a 4 banger on 33s. I pass most everyone on the highway here no problem. Get 17ish mpg too. Just need to know how to drive it.

I'd say you'd have yourself a deal at $4000, IMO. I'd say a steal at $3500. I'm not crazy about the 4 bangers either, I'd recommend a test drive where you can really open er' up, and see how you like it, something tells me you'll be looking for a 6.

Thanks for the input guys. I appreciate it.
I actually already own a 95' with a 6 cyl, manual. It does great. I was just looking to make some money. I might throw a $3500 offer at him and see what he says.
