Looking at a '94 Sahara w/180k?
I've been away from Jeeps for quite awhile, but I'm looking to possibly pick up an old one cheap for a a daily driver ( commute will be very short, 1-3 miles ).
I've found a '94 Sahara manual trans with 180k miles. It's the original owner and from the pictures - looks to be in pretty great shape. This is a TX jeep, so I'm not sure about rust - I'm waiting for more detailed pics.
I've owned a '94 Sahara ( auto ), '98 ( 4cyl ), 2000 Cherokee ( 4.0L ) and '06 Commander ( 3.7L ). All of which were great vehicles, and no engine or transmission problems.
The difference is that I purchased all those vehicles brand new, so I know exactly how they were treated & maintained.
I'm obviously cautious buying a 17 year old vehicle with 180k miles on it.
Like I said - if I drive it daily it will be very short commutes, but I will have a 600 mile round trip every week or every other week. I want something reliable.
What should I look for when I go to check this vehicle out? Thanks!
