I agree with the rear suspension mounting areas being a major rust area. They often rot before the body and the rear diff can exit the vehicle. Not an ideal situation. Look at it closely.
The 4.7 is not a bad motor. Not a great one either. They are prone to sludging, have no tolerance to being overheated, etc. If they have been maintained and not abused at all, they can give good service. If they have been even slightly abused or not maintained they can be an expensive POS. Look closely at the dipstick, inside the oil cap, etc. to see if it looks clean.

I know of a couple 4.7's that had blown head gaskets. Both of them had stop leak dumped into them to mask the problem.
Other than that, I really like them they handle high speed off road stuff real nice.

Posted up in the WJ forum. No replies as of yet... since the YJ crowd is often well-versed in all things from the 80s and 90s and beyond....
Am going to be taking a look at 99 WJ 4.7 this weekend. It's bone stock, excellent interior and exterior shape...170,000km. Says all routine maintenance has been done, but many do.
Was wondering if any of you have pointers on any unpopular issues these beasts have. Am admittedly not well-versed in the 4.7 other than vehicle specs. Anything I should look for in the undercarriage other than the usual I would for a YJ? I figure if something goes wrong down the line.... I have a YJ parts vehicle lol
At a VERY good price (which i will talk him down some). $3K CAD. Seems the guys is in a bit of a bind as hes moving for work and is taking his Sedan with him. So he wants to sell.

I don’t care where / what you are politically but anybody even moderately intelligent that has read up on the financial-related politics opinions of Warren Buffet, the (too soft) warnings of Ronald Reagan, Thomas Jefferson’s economic theory, or dabbled in Robert Kiyosaki’s books should immediately recognize how much trouble we’re in over the next 10-15 years with that kind of bankruptcy-bound thinking being so pervasive.
By the way, Chris. Save some money and invest for non-labor-based income. Your pension may not be intact in ten years

Didn't take me long to get banned from Twatter.
I asked ILHAN OMAR how long she's been getting down with her brother.
Sounds like a reasonable question to me.

They are all over Europe and Canada. It's pretty much a replica of the bike Kenny Roberts used to whoop the crap out of the European GP circuit.
A good two stroke powerband reminds people they are alive.

Good lookin' bike.
Is it a two-stroke?

Wife will kill me but I want this motorcycle. About a thousand bucks to ship to the east coast.

I recently set-up some game cameras to get a better idea when the deer/fox/turkeys come by to eat. Some come ~3AM, some ~5:30-6AM, and some ~7-8:30PM. Got a few pics of the foxes, but they are blurry because they were on the move.
I've been going thru ~15# of corn, ~3# of peanuts and 2# of apples each day.
These two are from 5:45PM and 10:20PM
