Ok guys, Iam new here and currently looking at getting a jeep. I saw this forum and have been researching "what to look for" in buying a used jeep. A little backround on this rig...
1995 4cyl 2.5l
New extended drive shaft
New U joints
New slip yoke
Minimal rust under the jeep...by the rotors. None on the frame itself
5k on the new clutch
Looks like it could use some new hoses
Interior looks really clean. No rust, rips, stains, etc.
Now the bad....from what I saw
-Pretty significant leak coming from the rear end (The pumpkin)
-A leak coming from where the motor and the tranny meet (Possibly rear main seal??)
Now for the Noob question. Feel free to laugh
I have already.
So Im not familiar operating the 4 wheel drive on a Jeep and want some pointers. Its a manual transmission. Should I be stopped, in neutral, and then go into 4 wheel drive?? Or should i be slightly moving (Less than 5 mph) and then engage????? Haha...any help would be great. I wanna at least test drive this beast and make sure everything is working properly before I consider it.
After all of that....The owner is asking 5100 obo. I think I could def. drop the price down because of the problems. A friend of mine said the leaks should be a somewhat easy fix...IF that is the only problem. Feedback would be great. Should I consider getting this Jeep....or just leave it to someone else. Thanks and sorry for the long post guys
