See if they can find you a V8. If not, go with the I6.

Yes!

YES!! buy it!

That is the same exact jeep i have, only i have a little less miles. (115,000)

It runs great, but i just recently spent $500 on a trans flush and new seals for the transfer case.

Definatly ask for a v-8 model, but trust me, the i6 has alot of power and gets out.

Ohhh,,,um,,no. Well, it prolly never snows there, right?

Do you plan on even going off road with it?

If you don't, than 2wd would be good for ya....but you never know, you might get the urge to off-road.

Thats what happened to me, so i thank God i bought 4wd.

wait

I would wait and get a v8 4x4 it will hold more resale value in the long run. I recently picked up my 98 limited v8 4x4 with upcountry. 114,000 miles awsome shape for $6000. My advice is to check traderonline.com , do a search for like 2-300 miles away from you. you may find cheaper jeeps if you are willing to drive a little. I'm in orlando and any vehicle is more money here then in outlying areas.
