i was just curious about a couple things, i think i MAY have found a jeep, its a 02 laredo model, i was thinking about switching everything over to make it look like a limited model, does anyone know any places to find the side moldings from a limited model or can the laredo moldings be painted to match the rest of the body?? theres a few pic a part junk yards in my area and i thought about combing around to see if i could find any
the other question i had was about mileage on a wj, i found one that im going to look at early in the morning, its a 2002 laredo I6 with 155,000 miles, hes only asking 2500 for it cause it needs tires and alignment done, plus theyre moving across country friday and dont have time to really let it sit for a higher price, i still have tires sitting in my garage from when i had my last wj, and a friend can cut me a really good deal on alignment, i stopped and looked at the jeep earlier but didnt get a chance to drive it cause he wasnt home and he had the key but his wife let me check out the inside and its damn near immaculate and the body appears to be in really good shape with the exception of a couple minor scratches, so anyways my question was would it be worth it to buy because of the mileage, when i had mine i bought it with around 70,000 and ran it till about 140,000 and didnt have any major problems except for a water pump, couple tie rods, and the front driveshaft, but i didnt know what to expect past that
appreciate anything anyone could tell me
worst case scenario i could always keep it running right till spring and have a new motor and tranny thrown in or something
well you have wheels and tires for it, alighnments usually run about 50 for a two wheel (which is what your jeep will need) the 4.0's are built very well, there isnt really a reason it shouldnt see over 200,000 miles. my ex girlfriend had a tj she beat the crap out of, never had the oil changed until she met me, i changed it, it came out litterally like a sludge. did an amsoil treatment, and a powerfoam, at 175,000 with ZERO maintnence, it still runs like a charm.
