Thinking about a niner...
 
So I have a good chance at getting a 5.9. It has engine work done to it (beefy), IRO LA 6" lift, regeared, 242 swapped, and alot of other things...

runs great!! My question to you... it has only 98k miles on it. Guy wants to sell it for 6k. It would be my DD for a while.

What do you guys think? I'm not really worried about milage... but would this be an ok DD until I can get another pull/dd diesel? How would she do off road?

thanks!

98k miles is no problem, but I'd be more concerend with how hard it's been beat off road!

Check my thread: http://www.jeepgarage.org/showthread.php?t=22239

As a guy that drove a highly modded one daily for about 18 months, I would tell you it is great on the road. However, with engine work, you're looking at 15-16 mpg, and remember, you have to run PREMIUM. It's not very economical. I have since bought a 35 mpg saturn car, and am looking at selling my niner. They have tons of power. One thing that sucked for me is I also own a 2008 SRT. When people see it, they know it is something special. However, when I tell them about my 5.9 Limited, they have no clue what I am talking about. Just mentioning in case prestige is an issue for u...
