About a month ago I made a thread about possible purchasing a TJ wrangler, but a good bit of time has passed and most members suggested I skip over the examples I had found on craigslist. This week I found a wrangler on craigslist I may go look at, a 1997 4.0 I6, 5spd manual sport with 170,000 miles.
Here is the ad:
1997 Jeep Wrangler 4.0 Sport
A couple things I have questions about
1. Is the transmission issue really a common thing with the ax15 that poses no real threat as the seller claims?
2. The soft top it comes with has a small 3" tear in it, the seller claims it can easily be patched with a tent patch kit, is that true?
Other things to be noted:
It doesn't come with any doors, needs a new windshield (crack wont let it pass inspection)
Through emails I have negotiated him down to his rock bottom price of $3,000. What do you guys think? Good deal or not? The only thing that I'm weary of is possible transmission issues.
Thanks for the help.
