Thanks, actually found a bunch more when I looked at I might put up some links (or specs if we're not supposed to put up links) of the ones I plan to look at in a couple weeks.

The one with a 4" lift is just a body lift, which I didn't notice until a co-worker pointed it out; no suspension lift. I'm thinking I want little or no body lift, and about 3-4" suspension lift with 33" tires.

Was going to post a question in another part of the forum asking if people switch out their tires a lot, since this will be the vehicle I go to work in, and play in the mud in.

I might be changing out a set of wheels every couple weeks when I go out on trails.

Been learning a lot these past few weeks, still got a lot more to learn though.

Tyche SWR,

Where-abouts in Upstate NY? There aren't a lot of off-road trails in NY due to the insurance companies managing to make accidents, etc., the responsibility of the land-owner. However, there's always the potholes in Batavia (or the snow and ice on the roads in the winter)

Good luck.

SWR Oops, also meant for the title to say "upstate, NY" not just upstate.

I'm looking for 6 cyl. 4.0 liter TJ. If it has some work done already, that's a plus, if not, I'll be doing a lot of work on my own over the years.
So far (if they don't get sold by the time I can afford them) I am looking at:

1) '98 6cyl 4.0L | 31" tires | no lift | 145,000miles | $5,000

2) '02 6cyl 4.0L | 33" winter force snow tires | 4" lift | 144,000 miles but a new motor with 60,000miles | $6,000

3) '02 6cyl 4.0L | 33" tires | 3" lift | 106,000miles | $5,800

The '98 says it's been stored in a garage and well taken care of, but I guess anyone can say that. Going to take a look at them in a couple weeks if they're all available still. Can't wait!

From Upstate, buying a Jeep soon! Newb ;)

Well, we've had one vehicle for years now. My wife got her degree and just got a job offer so we were in the market for a 2nd vehicle.
We've both always wanted a Wrangler, so now I'm finally getting one!
I'm looking at two different TJ's so far. A '99 and an '02.
Gotta wait until tax returns come (mid-Feb.).
She has always wanted one for the looks, I've always wanted one for the fun (and looks ).
I'm sure I'll be posting a lot of newb questions (especially with modifications), but once I get to know my stuff, I'll help out future-newbs if I can answer any of their questions.
