Hey guys, I've owned an XJ for a few years but always wanted a TJ. Well, for my birthday I'm trading it in and getting a Wrangler. :dance:
I have my eyes on a few, but right now I'm looking at a 2001 Sahara with 125,000 miles on it (4.0 I6 of course) with what appears to be am immaculate body.
Dealer is asking $9,000 for it, at this price are there any issues I should be looking for? What are common TJ problems? (any rot spots to look for etc). ANY advice about things to look for would be great.

hmm. i'm no tj owner but you always want to check around the shackle mounts and get up underneath looking for rot spots. seems like a fairly decent price though.

just bought my o3 wrangler X with 45000 miles all stock for 7500 from a friend

9k seems a bit high!! I'd say no more than 7500

Welcome to the Forum
Being in New York, make sure to check under carpet in the foot wells for rust. Also check under fenders, rocker panels and frame. Test drive it at higher speeds (55 to 70) to catch any suspension issues. Make sure that the 4WH and 4WL function properly.

have you looked on craigslist cause usually dealerships sell their stuff expensive
