Looking to buy a Wrangler - Hoping to get an extra set of eyes out there...
Hey all, I'm new to the Wrangler Forums, and I haven't purchased a Jeep yet. I've been scouring the For Sale threads on different forums and craigslist. I'm trying to avoid going to a dealer. So what I'm hoping for is a little help keeping an eye out, especially if you know someone that hasn't listed yet and wants to avoid the hassle.
Just toss me a note here and I'll followup.
What I'm looking for is pretty basic. I want this vehicle for offroading and possibly a daily driver. I've been taking my truck out to URE and I'm tired of risking breaking something on it. Plus to be perfectly honest it's not built for offroading.
So I'm looking for a Jeep to go offroading with. Some requirements...
- 4.0L, 6Cyl
- 5spd manual
- fuel injected
- family roll cage (I have 3 boys and a little girl, obviously not all going at the same time.)
- under $4k
- near Raleigh (within 1 hr drive)
That's pretty much it. I'd love to get a well maintained one, I'm not to worried about modifications. I'll take them or leave them. I just don't want something that's going to be a project before I even take it wheeling. I know things break while wheeling, that's expected. But it should be able to get out on the trails before it breaks. :whistling:
Thanks in advance!
P.S. - If there's anything I didn't mention in the post I should have drop me a line and I'll update it!
