2004 limited question
Hey guys!
Not new to jeeps, not new to the forum, but might be an active member here in the WJ threads!
Long story short, I had a 2011 overland that is now paying for my backyard. The buyer is willing to give her 2004 Limited up to sweeten the deal. I'm just asking the experts here what I should look for/smell/hit with a hammer/rattle when I look it over.
Limited, 102k on the clock, fuel pump replaced last summer, and the trans was rebuilt less than a year ago. Has 4x4 and the v8.
Just asking the experts here what I should look out for, or if it's worth it.
In the deal it's valued at 4k, which seems(?) Like a fair price. Let me know if not.
Basically, the WK2 is sold for "x".... or is sold for "x" minus 4k, plus she trades the wJ.

Fair deal?

I tried a quick search for common problems, but looks like overdrive should be paid close attention to.
Thanks in advance

Found this. Anything not on here that I should look out for?

That covers most everything. I looked for something STOCK. No aftermarket radio or anything (avoid bad splices), no obvious leaks from the valve covers, head, transmission & T-case. Love the '04 Limited I just got, much more refined than my ZJ. Layout, comfort, smoothness of the drivetrain.

Hey vista,
Thanks for the reply.... I found another "buying guide" on the other jeep forum ... It helped a lot.
You think I should be concerned that the trans was rebuilt less than a year ago?

Re: 2004 limited question
Helps if you know WHO rebuilt it. If they're local to you, easy to find out their reputation. New trans should shift pretty nice. Drive it a while, smell the fluid/look for flakes.
