    Due to unfortunate circumstances it looks like ill be getting a new vehicle. Already looked around for tacos but there are none in the area that meet my standards ( they are all 2wd and none have lockers). So i was looking around and I found several jeep wranglers I like. What is everyones opinions on what I should get? I have 10,000 and must be 4wd and alot of accessories to be able to add for upgrades. Opinions?

    Oh no he said jeep.



















    All kidding aside, have you considered dealers nearby, or craigs list within 300 miles. Just a thought, not sure what you consider "your area". Best of luck man I haven't owned a jeep but they can't be that bad. If your single and don't have kids, assuming your thinking classic style jeep.

    A little lift & some extra steel....
    Stay away from some of the YJ Jeep wranglers (easily identified by square headlights instead of round). Jeep went to some cheap ass transmissions during those years.....6-cylinder models built from 1987-1989 came with the Peugeot BA-10. This was a 5-speed manual transmission. The Peugeot BA-10 has long been touted as the worst transmission ever put into a Jeep vehicle.;)
