glad you decided not to do this. thinking of it from his point of view, he would be buying a very low mileage jeep for 4000 and trading in his possibly damaged high mileage jeep off to you. i suppose it's a fair trade if his jeep is in good working condition. do either of you have a d44? but just for a paint job doesn't make it worth the time to settle all the documents at the dmv and what not.
i agree cutting that body lift down to an inch will help with your t-case linkage problem.

Keep yours, lose the B/L, keep the blue (everybody and his brother has black) you'll have some distinction.
Why'd you put a new motor in it?

|missingbite||Neither! That blue you have is great! I see lots of black jeeps but that blue is more rare! KEEP IT BLUE! and ditch the 3 in BL.|
|07-12-2011 03:14 PM|
head...I'm with the crowd that says paint is the best solution. The mileage difference and the "unknown" aspects of the other guy's rig would make me hesitate. Better the devil you know than the one you don't know. Keep diggin'!!!

|JeepCreeper||Another vote for paint... and GET RID OF THE 3" BL!|
|07-12-2011 02:38 PM|
I wouldn't touch that trade with a 10ft pole.
Unless I owned the black one.

|Arch Stanton||x2 paint it!|

|hambubba||No way I'd trade his for yours, even with low miles. Anything wrong with that one can be easily fixed with 4k. I smell something here, not sure what you're stepping in...|

|OregonTJ||do not trade for a high mileage rig...........|
|07-12-2011 08:10 AM|
1st of all that's not a bad deal, but I'd definitely have it THOROUGHLY checked out before pulling the trigger. There could very well be a reason why he's willing to make that deal.
Also, why did he have it painted? Was the original paint faded, had the vehicle been wrecked, or is he like you & just want black. Furthermore, those flat black paint jobs can be had for cheap. You'd be trading a Jeep you know for one with a $300 paint job.

|headbasha||Yes, first jeep. First toy vehicle also that i can just do whatever too and not worry about it because its a 3rd vehicle. I think you guys have won the vote so i am just going to tell him No Deal and look further into painting my vehicle this winter. I also need to regear and get 4Low working. The linkage is not working.|
|07-12-2011 07:50 AM|
No way! Keep yours blue or pAint your own...is it your first jeep?
Idk about you but I don't ever wanna get rid of my first one...call me sentimental haha

|ospreyguy||Many have said it. Paint yours. A good flat black paint job is pretty cheap...|
|07-12-2011 12:05 AM|
|MoA||just get yours painted?|
|07-11-2011 09:34 PM|
|TjTheo||Get rid of that 3 inch body lift on your's then paint it black. 67k but im guessing you were the only owner which is nice, id keep it.|

|leadsails17||I would also have to say no to that, Miles are to much. Just go with the paint job if u want a black jeep.|
|07-11-2011 08:56 PM|
In my humble opinion I'd just paint.
|07-11-2011 08:50 PM|
|dale 3||Miles on a vehicle is HUGE!! Miles is what you can relate to FATIGUE! You'll be replacing more parts on higher mileage.Unless lower miles is used hard and maintained poorly.Mods can always be added.Sometimes bought right slightly used,some people change mods just for a change again.GOOD LUCK!|
|07-11-2011 08:50 PM|
|MikeMTJ||I wouldn't do that. Trading a vehicle with a new engine for another with 154k? All for a silly paint job?|
|07-11-2011 08:45 PM|
Could you build up that one to your wants and satisfaction for the 4,000?
I would make arrangements to meet and test drive each others, check it out thoroughly, and decide from there.
|07-11-2011 08:42 PM|
|BLK00TJ||I'd just paint. I do like that paint he has. hmmm....|
|07-11-2011 08:39 PM|
My jeep has about 6k worth of upgrades, i think there is a big difference in the 2 jeeps.
Yea, ive thought about it. I just hate to paint a perfectly good vehicle. The paint on mine looks good, no scratches, dings, dents, scuffs, nothing.
|07-11-2011 08:32 PM|
|NewYJOwner||Well, neither is highly modded, compapable in specs, your engine is newer with a warranty, But 4,000 will go a ways to repair any undisclosed problems. Ever thought of painting yours?|
