Looking to buy first Jeep, thoughts on this one?

2006 Jeep Wrangler

Something seems wrong with it, but I can't put my finger on it. It looks kinda short maybe? not sure, I'm new to the jeep world. Also, do you think its a good deal? Thanks!

It definitely doesn't look short, but I think 18k is WAY over priced. I mean hell, you could find a jk for the same price.

There's a lot that could be wrong with this. 6" is way tall. I can't tell if there is a body lift or not, but 6" is way big. Sure, it's got staggeringly low miles, which is nice. I don't see why he's offering 2 sets of wheels and tires....and I can't figure out if that thing on the side is a step orrrr......Don't get me wrong, It's good looking on the outside.

I'd pass. $18,000 is way over priced imo, In Atlanta, Jeeps with 90k miles are listed for $6-9k. Jeep engines last an eternity if they're maintained.

Your jeep is out there, be patient

'97 TJ, 4cyl. 3" JK "take-off" lift with 2" spacers up front, Bridgestone Dueler 255/75 R18 take offs.

I basically drive a Jeep TJK

nice TJ but I agree with above, that price is way high for one with these mods.

Maybe they just took the decals off, or they didn't use any decals in 2006 but usually if its a 6 cylinder it will say sport or x or Rubicon, if that is a 4 cyl its definitely not worth it at all.

edit: didn't read the ad enough, says 6cyl lol sorry, still seems a not high to me.

Way overpriced. That rig definitely doesn't have a 6" lift. Looks more like 4" with a transfer case drop and 33s.
