    Hello from afar!

    I've been a member here for a while, mostly just to look for info regarding my wife's Jeep. I'm currently in Afghanistan and will need a new vehicle when I get home and would really like to get a Wrangler. I was wondering where I would go, forum-wise, to look for advice. I have a budget and model in mind. Thanks!

    Looking for a Wrangler, need advice on what year/years are the most dependable. I doubt I will be able to afford anything in the $20k range, more like $14 and under, but it might be doable with a loan.

    I would look for a 2012 or newer, the 3.6 is a better engine.

    Thanks!

    Any other issues (especially mechanical) that I should know to avoid for certain years?

    Apparently some early 12’s have a sand casting issue, but I haven’t had any issues with mine. I have heard about a lifter issue on some years but not too sure about anything else.

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.
