Good Evening
Hey Everyone,

Hello to everyone! How's it going? I joined the forum to learn more about Wrangler's obviously. I wanted expert advice and I think I came to the right spot. :)

Anywho, I wanted to buy a Jeep Wrangler and I was wondering if you guys/gals can give me advice on what to look for or any other advice you can give me.

I have found a couple of used Wranglers in the area with both hard and soft tops. How easy are they to swap out? It is summer time and I would like to use the convertible know to pick up the ladies.

But anyways, I am glad to be here. Any information you can provide for me about ANYTHING, I would appreciate it.

Welcome aboard Vinnie!

What all do you plan on doing with the Jeep? Just a recreational vehicle or some serious wheelin'? I'd deffinatly go for a hard top when looking at a Wrangler. YOu can always pic up a soft top cheap... but hard tops are like $500/600+ used and $1k new... but if you don't have a place to store the hard top when its off a soft top would be just as fine. And it would prolly be best to try and find on with a 6cyl over the 4cyl.

:D welcome!!!
I would look for one with the 4.0l i6 not the 4. Look for rust wranglers can get rusty if in a snowy location.:eek:

Yo, Vin-nie. Welcome to the forum. Jeeps are not airworthy. In fact kind of like driving a refrigerator. But they sure are fun and they do attract the butterflies. Thanks for serving and hangin with us.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for welcoming me abored. I agree I've driven the Laredo's for years and they have good handling, almost like the hummers lol.

Anyways, I agree with getting a 6cyl engine, the extra power is always a good idea especially on a stick shift.

I've been looking at a couple of Wranglers some of which come with both the soft and hard tops. I've got a big garage to hold the hard top.

Does anyone have any experience switching the tops? I hear from some folks its a snap but others say it takes a couple of hours. Totally worth it?

I decided to go with the Wrangler after owning a convertible in the past. I test drove the Dodge Caliber (I know I'm sorry, you can beat me later) and it was an alright machine.

Thanks for the welcome yall,

I'd stay with the 4.0 liter engine and a Dana 44 rear axle.

welcome to WF!
about the hard top and soft top, personally I like my soft top, but thats because i live in Arizona where it is always hot and never rains or snows so I dont have to keep taking off my top and putting it back on.
just my thought
