Buying a wrangler, need advice on pricing options

Looking for a 92-95 Wrangler and was hoping to get some advice on general guidelines for pricing add on features.

These are some features I'm not sure how to consider?

1) Hardtop and installation (I want the full doors)

2) 33's and 4 inch lift

3) Gearing down for the 33's (if needed)

4) Air condition (Is this even worth it)

Basically, I can't figure out how to compare an outfitted rig and a basic model.

Oh yeah, I know the 4 banger is weak, but just how weak is it. My past rigs have been a 2.6 Isuzu Amigo and a 2.4 Tacoma. How much more should I expect to pay for the 4.0?

Thanks for the help in advance.

Re: Buying a wrangler, need advice on pricing options

1. Welcome to the forum.
2. Please complete your user profile:
a. It's a nice thing to do.
b. It's helps to know who we're talkin' to.
c It helps to know what's your ride.
d. It helps to know the local in which you live.
3. Read the New Posters Message at the top of the forum.
4. Participate! Two brains are better'n one!

I'd like to help... but if you don't fill out the profile I ain't got nothing to go on... the advice I'd give would be useless.

as example:

What are of the country do you live in? This helps to understand what trails may be near by.
What type of trails? Do you really need a built rig?
What's your off road experience? Drivin's 90% driver... 10% rig.
What's your mechanical experience? You use it you'll break it!
Do you have tools? See above.
Do you have a place to work? See above.
Why look at a "built" rig rather than built it your self? What's the draw?
What's your budget?

So as you can see, even though I'd like to help the advice would be of little worth. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Re: Buying a wrangler, need advice on pricing options

Where I live there is a $ 3-4000.00 diff. between the basic 4 cyl. model and the 6`s(which are usually hard tops) . I also notice here that you can slip yourself into a 97 TJ for what the 94,95 YJ owners are asking . Much rather have a TJ for a project than a YJ . IMO

I just bought a 94 YJ with a 4 cyl and am a bit dissapointed in the lack of power. Next time, I'll hold out for the 6. As for the A.C. where do you live? Just take the doors off and drive fast!
