    Good deal?

    Looking to get back in a jeep. Is this a decent deal? I know i will need axles and remove that damn snorkel. Just trying to get into something around 30k.

    I'm not sure if this is a good deal or not. But I would think about an axle upgrade in the near future and some brakes if your planning on keeping the 40's

    You should throw out a wave and introduce yourself before digging right into business! On the deal, I'm not sure if it's a good one or not really. I'm not a big fan of the idea of buying a fully built jeep, unless I know the seller personally, or it's built by EVO lol

    Welcome to WAL.

    Personally, I wouldn't bite. You're going to end up having issues running 40s on stock axles I think, the suspension is nothing special (Rubicon Express), it's an 08 and out of warranty, it has the old 3.8L engine, etc.

    Copy that. No point to get 2008, stock axels and pay 30K for it. Get something basic and build it yourself the way you want it.This is what i would do.

    Agreed. For your budget I would get as low a mileage 2012 + basic Wrangler and upgrade with new stuff.
