What are you planning to do with the jeep? I've had both 4cyl and 6cyl
Jeeps and the 6 is way more capable all the way around. 4cyl with 35's and 4:88 is going to be a bit of a dog on the highway especially if you are in a hilly area. Should be decent off road especially if you put a teralow kit in the transfer case. Just my 2 cents. Good luck
Let me clarify my post, a 4 cylinder Jeep is fine however a 97 4 cylinder with 155k miles priced at $7k is 2-3k too much. Modifications don't add jack to the bottom line.
Agree 100%. Also a 4 cylinder jacked to 35 tires is a dog. It looks to me as the owner went for looks instead of performance. If you are going to re-sell to a high school kid who wants to be looked at, then I would offer $4,500. If you are buying to have a Jeep to actually use, I would look for a completely stock, completely rust free unit that works as intended. For this I would also offer $4,500.
