2004 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4.0 from North America
It's a Jeep thing
Heater core (common on these).
Radiator (recommend a full aluminum radiator to prevent further issues).
While doing the heater core, I replaced the noisy blower motor as well as the water pump, thermostat, and as mentioned above, the radiator and hoses.
Soft top was replaced (they all go).
Fender was replaced due to corrosion (common in NY).
Frame rotting from the inside out. Wherever there's salt (Salt belt***) east coast USA.
I love my Jeep. It is very capable offroad and in the snow. Anyone who buys a Jeep knows it is not a fuel efficient or practical vehicle. With that being said, I love it and drive it 40+ miles a day. Aside from the typical small Jeep hiccups, it's a great vehicle. Turns heads everywhere I go (lifted 3" with 32s).
These rot from inside the frame out. Check the inside to see if it's all rusty. A finger in the frame hole will tell you if it's worth buying.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
