Stupid pre-ownership questions

Hey all,

I hate to be "that guy." Just got some questions about a Jeep I'm looking at. I have searched already about this.......

Looking at an 07 Wrangler X. 1 owner, 39k on the clock. I have read all the recall items for 07, and they have been done on the one i'm looking at.

Anything specific I need to look at or known problems that this year/model has?

Thanks!

find out the build date (will be listed on the sticker inside the door.

If it was built before December '06, it might have a D35 rear end. If it does, run away!

Or offer $2000 less and use it toward a D60...

The weekend of the 15th is starting to develop into something that looks fun. Camping/wheeling ---- the MUD crowd is hosting. Great fun watching IFS rigs bounce around on easy obstacles...

Hijack over.

It will more than likely leak, rattle, and make you grin like an idiot. Always. Even when you sleep.
Your beard will grow faster and thicker. Women will follow you around and men will want to be you.

'07 JK is good. the dealer should be able to check on the recalls. a good dealer will check during oil changes and such and ask the customer/owner if he/she wants the recall taken care of.

BTW, Russrover, I've been having really good results with Ed Voyles Jeep in Marietta. They're mod-friendly and have been giving me discount rates.
They're not perfect but they try pretty hard for good service.

I will probably end up going to them for maintenance! I work up 41 a-ways so that will work!

Well, your pockets will still stay empty with the Jeep. But at least you'll be spending your cash on mods rather than repairs.
I wheel with plenty of Rovers from the ExPo crowd. Somebody's got to be around to jump-start them.
