I'm back with more questions

Ok, so I didn't get the 1987 Laredo...but now I'm back with a new "should I...?" scenario. Here is the Jeep:

2002 Jeep Wrangler SE
Nothing Special done to it, 31" brand new (I forgets) on brand new (I forget) wheels. 2" suspension lift and the rest bone stock. It is a 5 speed 4 cylinder with 123,000 on it. All the miles are documented via oil changes via carfax. They were mostly highway in FL and were accrued very quickly. Little to no off-roading done with it (light trail riding at most). No modifications other than the lift and tires. Tires and rims are less than 6 months old.

He wants $7000, what do you guys think? For an '02 it seems like a solid deal to me. Considering a lot of comparable '91s-'95s are going for the same price...




Please let me know!!!

they all look decent.....

price wise, give them some negotiation....i sold my 97 for 6000$ in January on 31's with a locked ford 8.8" rear axle (sold my 32's from that jeep for additional 600)


soooo you should be able to do a lot better on the 91...like 5000$

the other two are priced about right.



keep in ming the 4 cylinders are real dogs on the road. offroad they are tough little cookies though.

the jeep on 33's will prolly suck on the road cuz they didnt say if they re-geared it.....33's and stock gears wont be fun .....31's are the max for a 4 cyl with stock gearing in my opinion.

I really like the '02, especially if they were all highway like he's proving. How much would it set me back to regear and bump to 33s with another 1" lift on the body? Also, with the 2002, what should I be really careful about? I will actually pay someone from here to come with me and look at it...im from zip 60446...let me know.

tooooooo much money for the 4 banger, if its not a six or a properly installed 8, I wouldn't waste my time, but thats just my opinon. Its all in what you want and will be happy with. I have an 86 with FI, and a 90 with the 8 conversation, ford of course, and I have a pristeen 89 larado with all the trimmings and I wouldn't settle for less, everyone I know that has the 4 isn't satisfied, but it all depends what YOU want and will be happy with, buts thats only MY opinion. And opinions are like............

02 didnt have too many big issues.....

to regear and move to 33's will be $$$

tires run ya 600ish

gears about 400-500 (i think thats what they go for)

and gear install is a lot



i say if the 02 is in your price range, get it...and beat on it as is for a while......remember that when you get bigger tires you break other parts more.....keep it mild for while and enjoy it till its paid for or you have more spare money

ok, so the dude with the white one just called. no new gearing. but man, all that stuff he did is what I'd want anyway...I really like that one, too. What would you do? $400 difference, but look at the money I'd save...any issues with 1998?

Only money you'd save if he did it right. If not... it's a money pit. The question, IMHO, is:

Did he do it right?

Modifications done badly will tear apart a Jeep, and be dangerous at the same time. If you look for a Jeep that's been modified then take it to a shop you trust to gauge if the Jeep's been modified right.

the 98 is nice, but i dont like jeep automatics....some other people do....i'm not a fan...they are power hogs

i'd say get the 02.....offer them 6000.....buy it for 6500 or less.......

wheel it as is for a while till you get used to it.......i think you are new to jeeping if i recall from talkign to you at allstate :-p.....you'll learn what you need and what you dont.......a jeep on 31's is already VERY capable, and wont break as much as one on 33s


my vote is for 02
