what you think about this jeep
 
well i wanna buy this jeep (JEEP Wrangler 2004- ID: 505032:: ::Soloautos.com.mx) i know its a manual 6cil 2004 35inch tires, lift kit king ranch or big ranch the owner docent know much, but the owner doesn't know if the diffs are modify like lockers or the gear ratio i think is the 3.07
what do you think is bad idea?
is good the price?
in front of the 4x4 shift lever is a little switch the owner say thats from factory but he don't know what is for what you think diff lock, or fog light´s??

jeepstertj 01-03-2012 05:17 PM

p.s is not a rubicon

jrussblues 01-03-2012 06:03 PM

I don't speak or read Spanish. Nor do I know how much $160,000 mn is? Wish I could help.

ou812 01-03-2012 06:13 PM

thats $11,722.36 u.s.

Its hard to say if its a good price.Alot has to do with location and avaliblity.
The switch could be locker,could be foglights.

Somepeople just go to dealers and get stuff installed that they dont use or need.
Its a hit or miss thing that the owner doesnt know much.I have a friend trying to sell a Jeep that he doesnt know anything about them.He advertising it as a rock crawler with crawler axle.Truth is its just a stock Jeep YJ with a spring over axle lift on 36" tires,Stock axles.He has no clue and refuse to believe its stock cause its a jacked up Jeep.

You never know.
if you can view the Jeep personally with a camera and take pictures of the axle,Look for an airline going into the diff section of the axle,or a wire.
Pictures can identify axles,shocks ect.

at 83k miles it does look like a clean Jeep and the price seems fair,Id offer hime less though

3.07s with 35s?

You need to be very careful when purchasing a pre-modified Jeep. You will be much better off starting with one as close to stock as you can find or purchasing from someone who knows what and how things have been modified.

jeepstertj 01-03-2012 06:41 PM

well what to expect about that jeep anyone with that setup(35tires lift and stock gearing)
how much mpg?
how good or bad the ride?
how much flex?

Lbailey21 01-03-2012 07:49 PM

those tires look like they'd be around 65lbs a piece..kinda guessing there. id guess like 9 or 10.lol im getting 13 with 3.73 and 33s. when you buy it, invest in new gears. 1100-1300

Big Cole 01-03-2012 08:25 PM

"X" models come with a D35 rear diff so you'll need to dump that POS and swap in another rear diff with proper gearing. Dont forget to also regear the front diff

ou812 01-03-2012 09:45 PM

Lbailey21 01-03-2012 10:04 PM

I mean. I've hit a 100 in my jeep ( I got held up at gun point) but NEVER do that. You can go interstate easy man. I dont go over 55 personally. Mpg drops

yeahh this means low rpms at higher speeds, but its gonna be a slug off the line...

and ask him to take a picture of the rear pumpkin on the diff, it should say the ratio. Im guessing its 3.73 like most 4.0l tjs.

In 4th...maybe 5th. Forget about using 6 At a 1 to 1 ratio. With 3.73 on 33's my jeep drinks gas. Step 1. Have a mechanic you trust look at it. If it checks out then it's a good buy and you will save a ton on tires alone. If its got a d35 then at least upgrade to superior. If its got 307's the re-gear immediately.

My opinion is you could do better. I would never buy a Jeep modified by someone else unless I saw each step of the modifications being done myself. That's just me though. :rolleyes:

I second that. Plus part of being a jeep owner is building your jeep yourself. Takin it from nothing to everything you've worked for. It's like watching a kid grow up, although thank god I don't have one. but I'd buy a jeep where u can put the money into it where u want it and know its done right. Other then falling in someone else's pile of crap

No you didn't, no you didn't and the last statement conflicts with the first.

Okay dude. Your soo right I got black spray paint that's it. Noo actually. I had a 3" BL when I bought it it caused 4wd linkage problems when I put my 4" suspension lift on. So I took it off. Bought a 1" BL. 1" motor mount lift. I bought wheel spacers for when my 33s rubbed on 3BL. I bought new front and rear bumpers. 4 d rings. Handles. KC 130w lights and brackets. I bought an in dash, 2 kicker 10s and an amp. I have camp seat covers, mats, and steering wheel cover. Oh wait, did I add I'm 16 and worked 40hr weeks over the summer to pay off my jeep? or that I did everything myself? Black spray paint.

I actually did get held up by a guy with a shotgun. My friend was with my. I don't drive over 55 to save gas. I hit top speed bc I just got held up by a damn gun. Other wise I wouldn't have.
