Re: 2000 Jeep Wrangler What to look for before purchase?
You can buy a cheap inspection camera from Harbor Freight that will allow you to see inside (at least partially) the frame rails. They sell for like $60 or something. Worth every penny if you ask me.
For a "fun" play vehicle that you don't intend to make a daily driver, you can be pretty flexible. Suspension in something that old will likely need to be replaced anyway unless the previous owner upgraded. If you're looking for a comfortable ride in a TJ, I'd suggest a long-arm kit, and Old Man Emu suspension components.
