Help with buying a YJ!
 
4 Attachment(s)
Hey guys Im new here and looking to buy my first jeep. Im looking at a few different YJ's. One of the jeeps I found today is a 1995 SE on 38's. I tried contacting the dealer, and I didn't receive an answer. The ad doesn't say much about the jeep besides it having 135k and on 38's lol. So I'm just wondering if there's anything you guys can pick up on from the pictures of whats going on with jeep. And if you guys think its a good buy. The dealer has it priced at 5,999. Its about a 2 hour drive from me, so if anyone can tell just by looking that its not built right that would be greatly appreciated. Also I plan on painting over the jeep with a bed liner, I don't like the color at all lol. Thanks alot guys, and thanks for looking!

its a lil pricey for 135k miles on it.. what size engine?

tmcd94 01-16-2012 12:06 AM

It has the 4.0l

38's are big tires but the 6cyl should have enough power to move those. it looks really clean from what i can tell under the fenders and inside and even the suspension from what i can tell which is good. not much else i can help with just from pics. i like the full doors on it. take it for a test drive. looks good though

Yeah, I like it so far. Im hoping I cant contact the dealer tomorrow and find out what kind of axle and gears its running. Hopefully not stock, thanks alot for the insight!

yea find out everything you can about it. lift too it has to have one to run 38" tires. rims look new too.

is that rust on the tailgate hinges? and below the tail gate?

tmcd94 01-16-2012 10:42 AM

Yeah Im gonna give them a call in a little bit to see whats up with it. And yeah it loks like there is a little bit of rust right on the tailgate

Those don't look like 38" tires. It still has SUA. Here is a YJ on 38" Those look like maybe 33"-35" Tires!

I would also ask if the axles have been swapped or at the least re geared to handle big tires. Was this thing a mall crawler? Trail rig?

tmcd94 01-16-2012 02:08 PM

Yeah I thought they looked like 35's! But I cant get a hold of the dealer, so I kinda decided against this one. Thanks alot though

I looks like it has a 4in sup lift and about 3in in a body lift. Buy closer to stockish and build it up yourself is the best way. Who knows what yahoo did the work on that rig or if corners were cut etc. Look at private sellers and use the money you save from not buying from a stealership to get some parts.

Saw you were from PA so I used Phili as a craigslist search.

Wow, that's a nice find BDK. Wish I could have a found a deal like that in Minneapolis.

tmcd94, pickup that YJ BDK found, and you save $3,000 for parts, upgrades and gas.

I've been eyeing up that one for a while. He keeps lowering the price on it. I'm not sure why no one has bought it yet.

Too bad I already have a 93 (which I paid too much for)...

tmcd94 01-17-2012 12:00 AM

Wow great find!! Thanks alot, I just texted him to show interest in it. Im going to give him a call tomorrow. Thanks again!
