    Yup especially with the old 3.8 and 40's you will hate your MPG and how sluggish it will drive. Like most have said get a low mileage stock with a 3.6 and then build it exactly how you want.

    Agree!^^^ i picked up a bone stock 12 sport with 20k miles last year for 23k but thats a 2dr... search the bigger cities typically fewer miles and less trail damage in big cities

    Wave !!! I don't think it's a good deal. Your already talking about having to fix and change things.
    Start fresh.

    the red flags that pop up to me are 5.58 gears?? sleeves and gussets on stock axles with 40s thats just asking for trouble

    small detail i know but its also listed as a 5 speed manual tranny which doesnt exist so makes me think they dont know what the hell they are doing

    another vote to pass and find a low miles stock 12+ which is exactly what I did (12 2 dr sport 40k miles pavement queen 6 speed for $20k) which would leave you 10G to do your own mods which can get you pretty dang far
    12' 2dr Gecko Sport 6 speed
    Cooper Stt Pro 295/70/17 ATX 195 17x9, 4Dr Rubi suspension, Rubi Swaybar w/EVO manual no limits, Rubi T case, EVO 1/4lb, Warn Powerplant 9.5

    ***SOLD*** 08' JKU Rubicon 6-speed Stone White, 3.5" RK lift, 37" KM2s and lots more.
    ***CURRENT DD*** 16' Toyota Tacoma TRD Off Road 6 speed

    The deals are out there, just have to look high and low. I really wanted a 2010 mountain, took 2 years and 250 miles 1 way, talked him into meeting 1/2 way, 90,000 miles, serviced at dealership, never been off road (roll underneath not a scratch), new 275/70/17 tires; a total pavement prince, for less than $19,000, retailed for over $25,000 in Jan when I bought it

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
