    I dont know about you guys but to me it isnt a Jeep unless its got the 4.0 high output and a Manual transmission
    Im currently looking for a Wrangler TJ (97 and up) with a 6cyl 5 speed with less than 60k miles for around 10 grand.
    Seems like its a fucking enigma to spot one around here

    I could never find one with an automatic. I never really paid any attention to the engine size though.

    I just traded in my '00 manual TJ sport :sadwavey:

    I had to get a more bigger car to haul the rug rats around in.

    Oh yeah, it had 73k miles on it and the dealer gave me $9400 on the trade.

    its probably because the only people who drive the 4 cyl automatic jeeps are the teenage girls here:squint:

    Seems like every lot in town here has at least one! A dime a dozen in Utah. Lot less than $10,000 too. If you are paying $10,000 for a 97 or 98TJ, you are getting it in the ass.
