dotey1 congrats on a great find for 2800. welcome to the jeeping world with lots of questions and a million answers. I have seen 4cyl go where the v8's had a hard time, just depends on the lead in the foot

horsedad58 On the seam leak, go to wallyworld and head to the camping stuff. They have Coleman seam sealer for tents... works great on Jeep soft tops too.

trxrider5 thanks! ill give it a shot

Diver9543 Try rubbing some bee's wax on the seams and it should help with the small leak. You can also use it as a lube for the zippers. Congrats on the new Jeep and welcome to the forum.

trxrider5 thing is this soft top is brand new.. it just leaks a little on the drivers side right where its sewen at the factory..
03-07-2013 09:47 PM
Throwmorepartsatit I have a 99 with 2.5 l engine, and i pull a trailer all the time. Just a bit gutless on the highway, but offroad in 4 low, or high, and it does awesome. But 12 to 14 mpg is about right. A cheap soft top is like 200-300 $. Loove my tj. Gutless and all.

trxrider5 im not a fan of the color, i could be wrong but i believe i got a good deal for 2800
03-07-2013 09:26 PM

03-07-2013 09:23 PM

That's how a jeep should feel!

trxrider5 It will be a daily driver. Also how easy is it to pop off the soft top and put it back on
03-06-2013 09:08 PM
rcsteph1 Is it just a toy? or daily driver
03-06-2013 08:24 PM
trxrider5 well right on you just did a pretty good job at convincing me lol
03-06-2013 08:22 PM
Sdizzzle I have 95 with 4cyl, it's a little slow on hilly highways, I can always keep up with the speed limit though. It does pretty good around town, and it's very capable off road.

If you really want a wrangler all that won't matter, you will love it. My top leaks, I have no carpet, crappy mpg, it's loud, and in the winter It gets cold. It's my daily driver and my weekend warrior. I wouldn't have it any other way.
03-06-2013 08:09 PM
trxrider5 i mean all in all do they make a good daily driver?
03-06-2013 08:06 PM
trxrider5 damn lol thats worse than i had thought... should i pass it up guys and just get another truck or what?
03-06-2013 08:03 PM
Hardcharger 10 to 12 sounds reasonable. Will prob only get around 14 without a trl at all. It's a box on wheels. Lol
03-06-2013 07:43 PM
trxrider5 by stock do you mean lifted or anything?? no all stock height and what not.. if it will pull the trailer is it gonna actually get 10mpg?
03-06-2013 07:40 PM
Hardcharger 94. No frame damage. 4 cy. It's a good price. Is it stock? If so you won't have any problems pulling a small trl with 500 pounds on it. BUT if you put bigger tires/ lift you're def gonna have issues
03-06-2013 07:39 PM
trxrider5 im trying.. just would like to grab this one up before it sells... i also heard pulling a trailer ill only get like 10mpg.. is that true?
03-06-2013 07:39 PM
Cole Noah That last part was meant to be a thumbs up, but im one my iPhone. Lol

03-06-2013 07:30 PM
Cole Noah The deal doesn't sound bad at all. But I wouldn't try to pull much with it. But that's me personally. It will but a lot of stain on the engine and the trans
03-06-2013 07:29 PM
trxrider5 is it a good deal for that price?? would it handle a 3hr trip one way with pulling half that weight?
03-06-2013 07:26 PM
Cole Noah Your not going to be able to much with a 4 cylinder. It's a Honda civic with four wheel drive

help asap please

I'm trying to buy my first wrangler tomorrow, its a 95 with the 4 cylinder motor.. has no serious frame issues and very little body rust which is very uncommon for indiana/ohio. has a small crack in the windshield.. good tires all around, soft top but does leak but just a drip, has exhaust leak, and runs pretty good. he's asking 3200.. i offered 2800 and he said he'd take it.. is that a good deal?? also my next question is i plan on pulling a small trailer with maybe up to 500 pounds on it for maybe a 3 hr drive one way or so... is that going to be to much for the 4 cylinder motor or should it do just fine? I've been looking forever for a decent jeep in my price range, I finally found one I just need to know about the motor power.. Thanks guys and fast reply's will be awesome considering I would like to buy it tomorrow
