My first Jeep experience is not a good one so far.

Well I found a 97 wrangler sport with 111k Its black and has a 4" lift 33"a/t with 10" wheels. The jeep is covered in mud , the owner went mudding and lost the gas cap and mud seen to make it down in the fuel tank. So it runs like crap. , it needs a major cleaning from top to bottom.It picked it up for $5500.00 Oh yes it needs fender flares . Ijust changed the fuel pump yesterday and drove it around the block ,I was happy ,you can actually give it gas without it sputtering. But today Idrove about 1/2 mile and it just started sputtering but really bad .I had to pull it back to the house . Found out the fuel pressure is 15 psi. Iguess I bought a bad pump.Iwill be pulling it back out tomorrow.It is from auto parts store. Now the second issue is the truck sways when you hit a dip or bumps inthe road . It feels like the back end Maybe the shocks are bad? My Jeep experience is not good so far. I still have FAITH in the jeep life.
