ISO - 6 cylinder w/ Lift and Off Road tires

I am new to the jeep world and thinking of getting one as a second vehicle. I live near Annapolis, MD, but would travel to pick up if I find a good deal. I am looking for something in the $3,500 - $4k range that is in decent shape, lifted, and has off road tires on it. Is this unreasonable, every time I find a good one on craigslist I go look at it and it looks like the pictures must have been from 10 years ago because it is falling apart.

If you have anything or know of anyone please let me know.

Thanks guys. I am excited to own a jeep for the first time.

Chris

You can probably find a 4 cylinder YJ with some rust for that price. Anything decent will cost 6k+ in the mid-atlantic region.

Thoughts on that? High mileage at 198k but in good condition minus rust spots on the fender. He said he would let it go for $,3700

I didnt read the entire ad but $3700 is a good price for a 4.0 YJ unless it is full of rust.

Even with 198k on it? My question is this is a secind fun car. Beach gilf course bad winter car, that I can just jump in and out of. I dont have money to put into figure if I spend 4k and it last two to three years id get my moneys worth.

thoughts?

A Yj is not for you if you don't want to put $ into fixing it now and then. But with your budget you will have a hard time finding something you won't need to throw $ at every now and then

Looks pretty good to me, as long as it isn't hiding a ton of rust. If the mods that he describes are accurate, he did them the right way. $3700, and take all the extras he' s offering. (even the 37 inch tires, which you can probably sell if they're decent)

This is the big problem. You're trying to get the best engine, already lifted with big tires, and expect no work needed. All at a cheapskate's budget.

There just aren't that many deals like that out there.

That YJ price is pretty well on target. Even with the miles.

If you want something newer, nicer, and have the ability to just jump in it, drive it whenever you want without putting much thought into it, be prepared to pay more.

You are right that is exactly what I am trying to do. Like I said it's a second vehicle and not a necessity so i am just going to sit back and wait for a deal i am comfortable with.

I am sure once I get the jeep the bug will get me and I will want to add things to it to make it my own.

Who knows this used jeep might be the thing that makes my next new car be a brand new jeep.

I am just going off deals I have seen sold on craigslist, I guess it's hard to buy a modified jeep going off KBB because of all the extras.

But craigslist has a ton of 6 cylinders on it in my area ranging from 3500, just gotta find the best one for me.

Good luck. If your patient you may find what you want. It took me months of searching to find the ones I purchased.
