Low milage 4cyl or high milage 6cyl???

what would you chose?
2004 4 cyl with 55,000 miles
or a 2005 6 cyl with 120,000 miles
both very close to the same price.

Id go with whatever one had less rust. What kind of price are you talking about?

So far the jeeps that we are looking at have little to zero rust. and I am very picky about that. I have owned two Classic Broncos and know all about the rust issues.
My price range is 11-12K.
the 4 cyl. is a 5 speed manual
the 6cyl. is an automatic.
I am also looking at a 6cyl with a 6 speed manual with 116,000 miles. they want $13K
Most of the jeeps that I am looking at have little to no upgrades. Pretty much stock, which is fine. It lets me do what I want to it.
Thanks for the input.

You should be able to find a lower milesage 6 cylinder for 11-12k. You will be happier with the 6.
