First Time Jeep Owner - Maybe

I’ve got a gentlemen that wants to trade his 2002 Jeep Wrangler X with 104,000 miles for my 2007 Dodge Ram 5.7L Quadcab with 190,000 straight across. My ram is clean inside and out but mileage is high and there is a to do list of upcoming work to be done (trader is aware of this). The Jeep needs a new soft top and a really good cleaning from what I can tell. No rust on either vehicle. Both setup for more 4x4 activity than I’d ever use. I have an appointment Thursday for my mechanic to look over the Jeep. I guess I’m looking for some feedback or guidance from seasoned Jeep owners.

It would primarily be my vehicle. 30 miles a week I’d use it for. Back and forth to work, drop kids off at school then fun on weekends.

There is no comparison to a crew cab pickup and TJ Wrangler. You plan on hauling kids back/forth to school with book bags, etc. you can't take a wrangler to the lumber store for some fence materials or sheet of plywood.

Just my first hand experience. I have a pickup, and a TJ, and my kids are grown and gone.

I am multi-talented, I can talk and piss you off at the same time.

One other comment, if you think you want to do the swap, ask your buddy for a week swap, then make your decision.
