Hey guys I'm looking to buy a jeep for my first car and I was wondering if you guys could help Oma couple things. Since I'm limited to about $10,000 because I have to buy the jeep with my own money I'm most definitely gonna be getting a used one probably from a private dealer. Since I don't know a lot about keep I was wondering what are a few things I should look for when I am looking at the jeep? What are the main types of problems that are going to be big to fix. I don't mind to do a little bitt of work but all in all I'm gonna want it to be pretty much ready for it to be ready when I get it. I know that my parents are goin to take anything I want into the mechanic before we buy it so I don't mean obvious stuff like engine or tranny issues cuz my mechanic will be making sure all of that is good. The only main thing I can think of to check is if there is a lot of rust or damage underneath or in the tub but I was wondering if you guys could think of anything else I should look for? Thanks!
