Another Question! =)

alright, i have realized also that there are going to be problems with any jeep i get most likely. And at best i can prepare for them by saving up some money first. Soo, would anyone like to tell me about how much i should save up befor i buy it. meaning, after i buy it i would still have a certain amount of money in the bank for emergencies. And im guessing the jeep itself should cost between 4500 and 6K. So i estimate about 1,500 -2K in the bank after the purchase. Am i right?

Re: Another Question! =)

Are you talking 1500-2K for fixing it up or for modifications(lift,tires,etc.)? If your talking for fixing it up to be a daily driver than I think your in the ballpark.

Re: Another Question! =)

that sounds about right... but if your young.. like i was with my first jeep, it's gunna be hard to keep that extra $$$ in the bank.
something you may want to think about also is the titles of your posts.. if you put a descriptive title in the title of the post, people that dont have any idea about how to help you wont have to waste time reading your post......and then other people may get help, or people that know about what you are asking may be more likely to respond.
