Just bought my first Wrangler!

I just bought a 2000 Sahara. It's black with no rust at all. That's something to be said here in Western PA. It's in very nice shape. It has a brand new top, tires, battery and radiator and has 95,000 miles on it. I picked it up for $7500.00. I think I did ok. What do you guys/girls think? I'm very excited, I've wanted a Jeep for years. I can't wait for the warm weather so I can drop the top! I'm happy to be a part of your forum. Somebody is going to have to teach me the Jeep wave! Have a nice weekend.

Muskie

I bought my first 2000 TJ Sahara 6 months ago, 9k with 123,000 miles in northern calif. Then just another 10k I've almost got my crawler built. Rubicon 3.5 lift, fox shocks, 35" BF Goodrich m/t km2, SYE, Drive shaft, HD tie rod, going to be installed in 2 days.

Some other goodies already installed:
Pure tank skid plate
Rock Hard rear bumper, tire carrier
Cobra 75 C
G2 Dana 44, 35 spline axles, ARB locker
Dual Optima Blue Batteries
Smittybilt front bumper, 8000lb winch
Smittybilt side bars
B&M Auto trans temp gauge
Jeep deep trans pan.
1" Daystar body lift
1" seat risers. ( I can see over the hood )
Just some ideas on what fun things to do to your Jeep

I've had my green 2000 Sahara for almost a year now... Bought it with 42,000 (!) miles for $12,500. I'm planning on getting a 2 or 3 inch lift this summer but personally I think the Saharas look great stock also. Good luck with the new Jeep!

CrackrJack that's a really good deal! I would have loved to get an '05 with low miles for that price

Makes me wonder if I should have taken better care of my 01 Sahara

I don't even have 95k miles on her yet and we've been through hell AND high water! Unfortunately with all the scratches and bruises I don't think she will command top dollar anymore but SHE'S MINE!
