Maybe new Jeep Owner

Going tomorrow to test drive a 2011 Unlimited Sahara. It has a hard top on it. The listing says it also includes a soft top. If anyone has any ideas for what I should be looking for as problem areas in a Jeep with 72k miles on it, Iíd be glad to hear. It mostly looks pretty stock other than some 35Ē tires and 18Ē Moto Metal wheels. Iím pretty excited about owning a Jeep finally. Thanks!

Thanks! I added a post there as well. Hopefully tomorrow isn’t miserable and rainy. Although I guess that’d be a good way to check the top!

Check for something like this behind the front wheels. If you see something like this. It's probably a front axle seal leak.[IMG][/IMG]

You should really be looked at JKs with the 3.6 ltr which is 2012 and up.
If gearing hasnít been changed thatís going to be turtle slow.

Ahhh. Yes, I should have clarified. This is a 2013 I found not too far away. It seems like itís all sorted pretty well. Itís not slow at all. The 2011 I drive first was like driving in molasses.

Well, picked up the Jeep after work today. I have some questions that I'll pursue in other areas, but had a good evening cruising around!
