Hey everyone. I'm new here and have been in the market for buying a jeep for a little while. This will be my first jeep, and while I am excited, I am also overwhelmed. I must say this forum has been an excellent resource for the jeep newbie so thank you.
One jeep i'm looking at has a 4" lift with 33" tires. I'm wondering if that will affect the jeep's reliability much. I'm planning on taking the jeep on mostly highway and unpaved forest/mountain roads. I'm also curious about how much this would affect mpg roughly.
Here is the listing, and it's up for 5k.
"I have a 1992 Jeep Wrangler YJ up for sale. I bought it in January of '09, and since then i've put over $2500 into it to make it what it is now. It has a 4" suspension lift, and 33" BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires on it that were bought brand new towards the middle of August of 2009. It will come with both hard, and soft tops, (soft top brand new this past summer, Bestop brand, and was only on Jeep for about 2 months before winter came and switched to hard top) and will come with full steel doors for the hard top, and both upper and lower half doors for the soft top. It has a single disc CD player with a remote, and aux. imput. The Jeep has around 105,000 miles on it, and has had regular oil changes. It has a 4.0L I6 motor that runs like a champ. and it's a 5 speed manual transmission that works just as well. "
So based solely on the fact that's it has a 4"lift and 33" tires, would this be a reliable jeep for what I plan on doing with it? Or should i just stick with a stock jeep? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
