Looking for a Wrangler around Boston

Hi guys, new to the site and I'm looking to buy my first Jeep (I'm a big gearhead, but have no experience with Jeeps). Looking to dive in headfirst and buy a modded Wrangler - lift kit, 33's, stereo, 5 or 6-speed, 6cyl, etc.

I'm open to any suggestions, but the Jeep should be pretty clean and reliable as a DD. I'm especially partial to electric green/blue, white, and black. Looking to spend somewhere around 10k and I'd like to buy as soon as this weekend. Any help, guys?

hello and welcome! I see you're from boston as well. i recently moved here myself. So you're looking for a wrangler already modded for $10k. you'll mostly find TJ models in the early 2000s for that price range. be sure not to go to high as im lifted 4'' with 32s but with an XJ, when i had my spare on my roof i couldn't make it under some parking garages, so pick your poison.

Early 2000's are fine - even 90's cars that have been well taken care of. Pretty much any car that is tasteful and makes me go "Yep, this is the ONE!"

Honestly, I think a 4" lift with 33's would be fine... I'll have the spare mounted on the rear swingarm, so no problems there.

Thanks for the welcome!
