Jeep peeps

It's an inline 6. Sitting here now negotiating. Thanks for the help.

Give them a hard time about gas mileage and the fact the original equipment has been fuged with heavily.

Those tires/lift will push that bitch down to like 12mpg:ciappa: hwy.

The inline 6 has been basically the same engine for 50 years. Even though the engine was taken over by ChryCo. in 2006 it's pretty much the same AMC engine. All they did was some minor tweeks to reduce noise and reinforced the block with extra gussets. It's been a solid engine for a long time running.

The engine isn't the thing you have to worry about with Jeeps, it's the other parts.

I have had a jeep since I was 16 and had only a couple parts failures.

Had a 1997-2003 radiator got hit by a rock and caused an overheat.

Rebuilt the engine and it never missed a beat.

Had some tranny issues too.

My 2004 Rubi had been fantastic and never misses a beat.

That I6 is a great engine... those things will run forever if you take care of them and they are very torquey.

Lifts aren't so bad depending on what kind it is and how high. Check the drive shaft and u-joints for wear due to the lift. Large tires also wear the brakes down faster.

Now if they've done mods to the engine/trans I would be a lot more weary of it.

Brake pads are cheap and easy to replace yourself, and if you don't know how, buy a hanes manual for your vehicle and do it yourself. I never understand people who let themselves get charged ridiculous labor prices for simple poo.

Buddy of mine went to a place to get his brakes done...within an hour, he was told that one of his belts were worn, and that they would replace it right then and there. He grabbed the belt and brought it to me and some of the guys...there was nothing wrong with it. Just a little wear, but no holes or tears. Those fugers will get you.

Whenever you take your car to get repaired, always ask for the old part. By law they have to give it to you. There are a lot of shady shops that will replace your part, and then use your part in someone else's car after they clean it up.

Personally, I would never buy a truck/jeep for that much money that has had any suspension work done.

After the previous owner has that crap done, you have no idea how hard they were on the automobile. Some 30 year old accountant with an extra 2500$ gets a lift kit and some tires and he turns into a "professional off road driver" and part time rock climber.

I'm not disagreeing with you per se but...

If you don't trust the shop working on your car any more than that, take your car somewhere else.
