HELP! Need to get a Jeep on a budget..
I'm Arnold, I'm new to the forum, and I think its great, I will become a sponsor as soon as I finish the academy. Anyway, I owned a 92' Jeep Wrangler YJ, Which I sold after my divorce. I am now reconciled with my wife, and I am wanting to get back in the game! I have about a $10K budget, but I want to get something newer, more dependable. How much of a difference is there between the 4 cylinder and In. 6 in the TJ models? Im looking to get a 2000 or newer model. Id really like the longer wheelbase Wrangler. Is it unrealistic with my budget? Stock or modified? What do you guys recommend? Thank you.
always buy stock. you don't want no ones project. who knows the quality and workmanship has been put to the jeep. and you will probably want that extra hp, not sure what your goal is for the rig. but you can't go wrong with the six.. good luck with the hunt.
Thanks for the advice brother. I did forget to mention what my goal was. My goal would be to have a daily driver, but be ready to go anywhere. Im not going to go too crazy with the suspension and tires. Im thinking a 4 inch lift, and 33s. I just wasnt sure if the power difference was significant between the 4cyl and the 6..

Get the six.
Check for rust in detail. Especially the tub and frame.
Im in the exact same situation. I too want a TJ 2000+ year model. I'm not sure what the LJ's goes for in your area but I have not seen one lower than 12500, and they rarely pop up for sale. Like others have said it's best to by one as close as stock as possible that way you can make the jeep how you want it and know exactly what has been done to it. Good luck with your search.
