Re: Looking at a few 4.0L WJs

I was about ready to get a 2005 WK with a 4.7 until the came back and said, "We'll get that fixed for you." I wasn't going to pay $637 to fix that right after buying it...

Re: Looking at a few 4.0L WJs

Well that sucks on the wheels... The Jeep is in the shop getting looked over. This makes or breaks some kind of a deal with this one. I like it a lot, but if there's too much wrong, then I wont buy.
