New toy
 
So it looks like I'm gonna have to expand from the WJ to JK section. I'm debating about picking this up for 14k.

The only thing I don't like is the engine size but I really can't change that. I'm looking for this to get me through the snow/sand/mud whenever I run into it. This will not be a DD.

I normally tow a couple bikes and a quad out to the desert. Anyone have experience with this motor? Please let me know how it does.

Please let me know if you see any red flags or anything I should be looking into. Thanks.

2007 Wrangler X
Engine: 3.8L V6
Tranny: Stick
Mileage: 80,573

I know. The engine needs to be cleaned.

I test drove it and the breaks squeaked like an old mattress with two fat people on it. So they were fixing that and that took them like about a week to fix. Then the front axle was leaking and now were currently arguing about the price to fix it. They said I pay full for repairs I said we each pay half and they said no were already taking a huge cut on the price. Soooo as much as I love the Jeep these people are a pain in the ass and I'll probably walk. I can find that same type of Jeep with the larger motor for the same price down here.

In a Wrangler , Carpet is just a mud collector ,lol along with it holds water and will cause the floor to rust faster. alot of people use bedliner instead

:thumbsup::thumbsup:Carpeting has no place in any 4x4. I wish I could find someone that makes a rubber mat like the old pickups had for the WJ. I'd ditch that carpet in a minute.
