Need opinions and knowledge on 03 TJ
Here's the credentials according to the seller:
2003 Artic Silver Jeep Wrangler 4.0 V6 with 5 speed and 109,000 miles. Jeep has a 4" Zone Offroad lift and 1 1/4" body lift. Other items are a Smittybilt XRC 8,000 lb winch, Smittybilt XRC Rocker panels, Smittybilt XRC front bumper and 7 year O'reilly AGM battery less than year old. 35" Kumho MT tires, black Helo wheels, Teraflex slip yoke eliminator kit and Heavy duty Tatton driveline. Asking $9K
Here are my questions:
1. Is that a decent price
2. How much $$$ does this jeep have just in extra upgrades?
3. What is a teraflex slip yoke eliminator kit?
4. What is a Tatton driveline?
5. Most important question. I asked the guy if it had ever had any engine or tranny work done and he said no. He did however say "after the lift was put on it made the tranny sag so second gear is kinda tricky. It just needs the tranny bolt mount spacers and that's it. It's a cheap fix." I then asked if 2nd gear was hard to find or hard to put in, his response was "hard to find".
Does this sound legit? My question is why would it just affect 2nd gear? Also, if its a cheap fix, why not already have it done. What would it cost me to get this fixed if that's all it needs. This is just out of my knowledge realm.
Any help, thoughts, or comments would be much appreciated. I'm suppose to look at his jeep on Thursday 11/7.
