Looked at this one today

1993 Jeep Wrangler

I test drove this YJ today and I had mixed opinions about it. The good: low mileage, minimal rust, and the guy seemed like he'd take a lower offer. The bad: it bucked when I gave it gas in second gear (any idea why?) and it felt like it didn't have power steering.

What input do you guys have?

Do they bring that kind of money ? My 94 was 600 with a few problems of course. Hopefully it will keep running after the last fix. Both tops, new tires, hard and soft doors..... 1500 so far. Have alot of parts to sell so it should level off at a dozen. Good luck with your search.

What do you mean by buck? Do you mean when in second gear when you press the gas and let off real quick it does that? If so then no, that's normal.

I think I'm worried because I don't actually know what it is supposed to FEEL like. The only other stick shift car I've driven is in Audi with a brand new clutch so I'm assuming anything else is going to feel rough by comparison but i just don't know how rough is too rough. I'm going to go check it out again and REALLY drive it because before I just took it around the block.

ok lets get this "buck" thing under control. When you step on the gas say in 4th gear then shift to 5th. The jeep lurches forward? That is normal it is called torque. When you slow down from say 5th to 4th and the jeep kind of nose dives into the ground that is normal too. That is called trying to drive a brick threw air just doesn't like life. Was there something I am missing on this? Were you talking about a buck in the motor or more driven train related like I explained?

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

yeah drive it for a while and really get to know the vehicle... try to bring a friend or someone that has driven stick more then you and see what they think of it... the stick shift on the Jeep will be more like a truck then a car... there are a lot out there though so dont force it if your not comfortable with that particular Jeep maybe even test drive another and see if it shifts the same way

Lets check this out;

1993 Wrangler 18 model years old ( almost collector plate status )
100,000 plus miles get ready for some seals and maintenance
4 cylinder Not a power house or fuel sqeezer
5 speed prone to expensive repairs
no hard top hope you like wind noise and cool temps
no full hard doors half doors are a compromise
frame rust ? it is old and prone in many areas
power steering sounds like its ready for repair


If its a toy and you want to learn a mechanics trade fine. I personally don't believe it would bring that much money to a perspective buyer with prior jeep repair knowledge. Just my two cents.
