Back to Jeeps

So, I am possibly back in the jeep game but with a WJ instead of a WK. I am no stranger to jeep mods, my WK had a superlift and 35's. Anyway, I found one that has the OME lift and some 265/70/17 tires. It has the 4.0l in it but I was worried about the tire size and the tranny. Any advice on what to look for or to even try and get it? Thanks a lot guys.

So it's the OME HD lift, with bilsteins ? That's a very nice setup I don't think you have to worrie about the transmission vs. the size of the tires. That should be all fine. I would worrie about what parts of the suspension that have been upgradede and what type axle there's on it. I guess it's a 3" of lift there's on it, and if there have been no upgrades like the trackbar and in some cases the LCA and UCA it might be a good idear to consider doing that

It has the RRO OME kit so the trackbar and LCA's are replaced. I guess I would need to get the Speedo DRD setup cause I doubt this has it, but I could be wrong. It has the DANA 30 and 35 axles, any good? From what I have read they are good. Heres a pic of the jeep.

It looks very nice ! Ofcouse depending on the price tag, miles, maintenance and so on. But it looks like the owner have done a prober lift, and havent made any shortcuts

What's the price ?

That is the freedom edition wj. Check for rust and make sure the engine runs smoothly. Also check the 4wd. That is a pretty damn good looking wj though.

They are asking 9995. Not sure if that's a good price or not.

If the vehicle is damn near perfect in every way with low-ish miles then thats not a bad price considering . I paid roughly that for my 04 laredo with 74k on the clock at the time. Check everything you can. If everything is works and is in good condition, no rust, and it has past maintenance records along with no problems lifts come with sometimes, then its not a bad price. You can always negotiate a little bit no matter what though

Yeah, it looks good just has 102000 on it so I thought the price may be a little high after some research.

Yea thats a bit much for the price. Id say if its pristine condition everywhere else, closer to 8800 is better
