good luck...when i was looking for a jeep i found out two things.

1) there is no such thing as a cheap good jeep. People selling them know what theyre worth especially if theres aftermarket parts into it...

2) If you want a decent jeep you wont pay a decent price, if you want a decent price you wont get a decent jeep.

also i think its almost hand in hand regardless of quality or price paid...if you own a jeep you'll either be fixing, improving, or some combination of the both at one point or another.

Well kid if u want a cheap jeep. Learn to turn a wrench and do your homework on jeeps. When buying a jeep it helps to more than the other guy. I got a guy down from 5600 to 4500 for jeep for my bro. Simply because I new what had to be done and how much it costs. And always keep looking. It took me 3 yrs to find mine. $1000 and all that was wrong was a hole in the trans line. Your jeep is out there if u just keep looking for it. Good luck

keep looking
last year I found 2 jeeps, one I
resold for 1500 profit
the other has rust but I have put on 20,000 +
miles and have only had to put on 2 tires
I only paid 1400 w/ hard top and doors, sold the soft top and doors
so only have 1000 in it
its not pretty or liftable but it runs great
never had a problem
just keep looking

Silver-lining..... recognize and congratulate yourself for figuring out the "too much" barrier BEFORE you got into it.

Very wise person.

Excellent critical thinking. Keep that up.
