I bought my 5.9 a year ago when it was 73K miles and it's now 86K miles. I've been riding it for the whole year and I took all the pleasure of its comfort, hi-speed and moderate off-road capabilities. But it's maintenance costs has given me nothing but frustrations. Besides it has very hi tax rates in the country I live.

I saw this Wrangler 1998 hard-top the other day and I have decided to replace it with my 5.9.

It has airbags, Cd, A/C, winch, protective bars front/rear, 4.0L, looks good it's only 23K miles and has NO room for cargo!

Test driving it was ok, no noise or anything like that.

The main reason for replacement is -besides the 5.9's high cost of maintenance-; there are places in my village I intend to climb and I have no courage to go there with 5.9, it's mostly rock climbing, plus muddy and steep.

The dealer wants a small charge for replacement.

Would you go for it or stay with 5.9?

thanks .....

Being a Wrangler guy, I say go for it. You will not be disappointed by the Wrangler, unless you like the plush ride and extra space of a Grand Cherokee.

I have to agree. Wink
Where are you at and what kind of driving do you do?
