Hoping to be a new (used) jeep owner, help please
 
Hey everyone!
Im hoping to buy a wrangler soon and would love some tips and what to look for and what to avoid. I would definitely like a 6 cylinder. It will mostly be a daily driver with some light offroading and mountain driving here and there. I would like to stay under 18k or so. Any tips help! Thanks everyone!

I went and looked at a jeep wrangler X 4.0L V6 with 48k miles on it. What do u think?

Check on Autotrader.com, eBay, Cars.com and that will give you plenty of options to look at. Compare prices for Jeeps with the options you want.

Avoid 2000-2002 I believe those are the years anyway, those have had some bad stories :hide: and if its an older wrangler, look for rust everywhere! check underneath the carpeting, on the frame, the body, just basically everywhere on the undercarriage. See if you can have a mechanic or 2 check it out b4 you buy it and if you can, spray over it with a hose to see if there is any roof leaking problems. Im sure someone else will come in here and give you the details tho :thumb:
