Even if you were concerned about the miles --new set of bearings, seals,and any sign of wear possibly a new set of gears I think you would be way ahead if you were looking to do a build. 60K on the rear wouldn't bother me too much. Agree though everyone is different.3rd-hand set with 60,000 miles on the rear!
Everybody's different, but if I couldn't afford to buy new or barely used I'd just wait till I could.
Couple of things wrong here.
First, there's no such thing as disposable dollars, even if you're a millionaire. Second, if I had that amount of what I (wrongly) considered "disposable" dollars, I wouldn't be shopping for used parts on Craigslist. Especially for items of this caliber. If that amount of money is deemed truly disposable, then buying new wouldn't be an issue at all.
I think you should sell your jeep, take two steps back, and reassess your life and where you're going. Stop this madness before it's too late.
I'm going to be honest with you... when I first read it I was saying to myself "oh.. one of those guys.." and then all of a sudden my sarcasm alarm started screaming in my head. Ahhh... funny!I thought it was comical giving sound financial advice on a jeep forum. Had a smile while typing. That's funny shit.
