94 yj pros and cons?

Looking at a 94 yj with the I6 and a 5 speed manual trans. Small lift with 31's, only showing 110000 on the dash with AC. I need to know what is good and bad about the motor and trans combo I am looking at. Thanks I just want to have a solid platform to start my build. My build goal is being able to ride to the trails hit some hills and drive it back home.

You have one of the best build platforms you can get.

I have an I4 and an AX-5. I would love to swap to an I6 and an AX-15. Great powertrain and EFI, you should have a blast.

I just noticed it has AC. You should buy it. The only stronger indication that you should buy it would be a factory hard top.

That's a great place to start. the swap to 4 cyl front D30 and rear 8.8 with 4.10's is cheap and easy and an even better place to start. with only 110000 on the clock that's nothing for these inline 6's i've seen them properly maintained much higher than that.

Definitely go for it, I had a 4cyl and ended up buying a new yj with an inline 6 a year later and it's definitely worth it

Because a factory hardtop almost doubles the resale value. Around here it does, anyway.

Besides... doesn't it rain and snow in SC?

I wouldn't give up my hardtop for anything.
