03 sahara jeeper I would look into the rust on the rear lower control arm mounts. Check the frame for rust especially around the transfer case skid plate. Make sure 4 high and low work. Check the heat and AC in all positions. Looks pretty clean.

NHflannelman12JK76CJ5 How to Calculate a Rear Differential Gear Ratio - YouTube

there should be a plate if I'm not mistaken on the diff cover - but the dealer should know this or be able to determine it.

I'd check all of the frame - bring a screw driver and poke around - but specifically the rear by the coils. I think that's common - but the TJ forum guys probably know more.

Verf Thanks! How do I confirm the gear ratio? With the VIN? What specifically should I look for on/in the rear frame?

NHflannelman12JK76CJ5 confirm the gear ratio - 4.0 stick should either have 3.07, 3.73 (my bet) or the 4.11. Depending on what you want to do with it, you may not want the 3.07. That's a pretty decent price. The folks in the TJ forum should know more. But since this is a NH rig, I'd check for rust on the frame - in the rear. This one looks clean and I've seen it driving down route 9 from the road but I haven't stopped in to look at it (i frequent Keene).

Possible purchase, thoughts?

Been in contact with the dealer and will drive up to see it Sunday. I'm new to Jeeps and looking for thoughts on this one and what I should look for when inspecting it.
