    after owning a few jeeps, i personally wouldnt even consider a jeep with a 4 cyl
    go for the 6, you'll be much happier in the long run, regular oil changes and normal maintence and you'll get 200,000 easily

    Did not read the ad listing but I have two 4 cyl., one with 175,000 and one with 165,000 miles. Both are 5 speed and excellent reliability. I also have a 6cyl with 135,000 as well. All have 6.5' blades. No difference in ability....

    I stopped reading after 4cyl and 5 speed. I used to go 4 wheeling with a manual and i was beat after a long day. Clutches will burn out quicker and your starter will get a workout. 4 cyls are not bad if all your looking for is a driver. Auto 6cyl jeeps are hard to come by at a decent price i looked at over 200 jeeps in my area on the web 80% were stick. I would look for a 4.0L the jeep wont have to work as hard. IMO

    If you know how to drive a manual works jest fine I change my clutch every 75 K just because. I see a lot of 4 cyl with plows. they have plenty of torque. Ihave used manual Trany jeeps for 21 years had 1 auto sold it.
