New Clown on the forum ;-)

Well the wife and I became Jeep owners today, purchased a used 2005 Wrangler Unlimited with 69K miles. It appears to have been well kept and one owner, it does have a automatic which I really didn't want but the price was right and being a old fart my left leg probably needs a rest anyhow. As far as I can tell it is bone stock.

Can anyone tell me if there is any difference between a normal Wrangler and a Unlimited other than the obvious (wheel base)?

Welcome to the forum. Nice find! Pretty sure they are mostly the same, other than the obvious more room. Think the LJ's came with a rear D44 and 3.73 gears which is a great starting platform. Have any upgrade plans? Let the mods begin!

Welcome aboard! The Unlimited is a great platform to start with. From a technical perspective, you have all of the heavy hitting tools. Just gotta go out there and use them.

Welcome to the Forum

The Unlimited also has a greater towing capacity than the swb Wrangler.
