Bought a 2005 WK today!

I picked up a nice looking 2005 WK with a 2" lift today. It has leather, Moonroof, DVD and the 4.7 with 91k. It ran great all the way home from Sandusky, OH (150 miles) tonight. The owner took pretty good care of it. He even had it detailed, new battery and fill it with gas for me! He even drove 1 1/2hr from Cleveland to shorten my trip.

I do have a question though. I noticed a clunk in the front when pulling in and out of parking lots or just random bumps in town. Any ideas??

Actually, I just went back out and messed with it. You can grab the passenger wheel and the ball joint in the upper control move just a little. The driver side has some movement too but you can't see it. Just felt it a little.

Nice Jeep! You have to expect with a lift and some mileage on it you'll have some issues like that! Still a good buy I think.

You may want to make sure the bolts that connect the struts to the chassis or tight as well.....
