New member from NH

Hello everyone. I'm from southern NH looking to get my first jeep and was hoping you guys could help me. I have a budget of 6000$ and would prefer a 6cyl but it doesn't really matter. Here's a few I found that seem good:

2001 Jeep Wrangler SE Sport Utility**1 OWNER**4X4**SOFT TOP**WARRANTY*
Jeep Wrangler YJ ** 1992 **
Richardson Auto Sales (click on inventory and it's the only wrangler)
And I saw a 97 4cyl with 160k for 4200$ on the side of the road that looked to be in good condition.

Welcome to the forum. Of the 2 that are viewable, I would go with the YJ. The TJ looks like it has not been well cared for and it needs a lot of cosmetic work. That in itself is not a big deal, but if it wasn't cared for on the outside, I doubt that it was cared for at all. I would check them both out and look for rust, take them out and test the 4WD and handling. The only visible problem with the YJ is the body lift, but that's a personal thing. Either way, good luck with your search

Thanks for the help. What's the problem with the body lift on the YJ?

After installing all those parts last week on the YJ, did he say why he wants to sell it?...

Sorry for no updates my computer crashed right after I posted here so I'm on my iPod touch now. I've been looking to spend a little bit more money and found a 2000 for $8888 that has 89k miles. I looked at it earlier today and it was In very good condition. The only thing wrong with it was the blinkers don't work and the alignment is a little off but they are fixing those problems tomorow. I'll find the link to it and post it in a few minutes.

Looks great. Welcome to WF.

Lose the milk jugs and the steps and you are ready for the trail.

I agree that the 4.0 is the way to go after test driving that tj earlier. My dad is bringing it down to his mechanic to tomorrow so I'll post up what he has to say about it.

Looks like a nice rig. Welcome to the forum, and I'll see you on the trails.

The mechanic went over the 2000 and it needs new rear brakes, all tires, alignment, and the transmission has a small leak. The salesman at the dealership that the jeep is at said that he would take care of the alignment and brakes along with 100$ or so off the tires.

I'd be a little concerned about the trany leak, but other then that.... There's nothing better then a new to you jeep that needs new tires. It's a built in excuse to go larger. I bought my Jeep knowing full well that I only had about 15000 miles left on the tires.

Well because I have to pay for the jeep I won't have the money to get bigger tires, lift, or any other parts for a while. With that being said the tires that the salesman recommended are the mastercraft courser A/T's. Do you guys think these tires would be good for driving on old skidder trails in southern NH every once in a while?

Dude, I used practically balled tires on the trails last year in southern NH. You should be fine.
