    No, the 6 Cyl auto is good ..... but because of the heavier motor you have less capacity for a plow.

    Which motors do you have? A 7.5' plow sounds awfully big for a Wrangler, especially a V-plow, arent they quite heavy?

    BTW, I like the D60 tho, what front axle do you have?

    I looked at that jeep and decided against it. I even talked her down to $3100 before buying another 99 in better shape with a hard top, new tires, 6cyl Auto for 5k. She didn't know much about the truck and when I looked at it the oil didn't even register on the dip stick a good indication she didn't maintain it well.

    I just figured it was going to be a maintainance headache and since we have a 97 that is like that I didn't want another one!

    If you do get this, offer her 3k and see what she says, when my business partner was there another guy looked at it and walked away, I think she is really trying to get rid of it!

    WOW, TJ's are less expensive than I thought!!!! Sounds like you got a good deal!

    Does your 1999 have coil packs or distributor? My 1999 XJ still has the distributor, the head was changed slightly when the coil pack rail was added and in a few cases a small crack has formed between two cylinders, happened to my friends year 2000 XJ.
