    A first time buyer sticky??

    Hey guys havent really been on in awhile really concentrating on work at such so not much time for anything else..

    Anyways tax season is coming soon and im in the market for another zj and i know what to look for when buying a zj but some new people might not so i think it be a good idea to have a sticky dedicated to that.. kinda like a first time buyers guide certain problem areas, rust wear and tear, i know we have a common problems but i dont see much for rust issues, paint defects..

    He did it just doesnt refer to anything exterior, interior wise ..such as

    rusting rocker panels, hood lip, hatch or under doors..
    Faded rear side vents
    Rusted brake backing plates
    Ripped drivers seat
    Warped leather door cards
    Chipped paint mirrors
    Like mine and kennyspowers rusted frame
    Dying seat motors which seem only to be drivers seat
    Cracked or broken drip vent studs
    Saggy front bumper

    Maybe throw in an average price range for mileage we could post what most of us payed so we could get an average

    Im just trying to help others who join the sight looking to buy a zj and start a thread asking what they should look for when buying a niner or zj for that matter

    Pretty sure I have more hair than the rest of this forum's members put together


    Not a bad idea on the sticky I guess.

    Probably divide it up into ZJ stuff in general vs 5.9 stuff maybe, plus the rust thing is a whole other issue....

    I love that pic ^


    Someday...

    Got kinda busy at work etc so I haven't had as much time to think about this.

    I think I'm going to submit a thread asking for other peeps ideas on what to look for on mechanical stuff etc so I don't miss anything.

    The rust issue is a whole other thing. Once I get that done I'm not sure if I'll include it as part of the first time buyers sticky or do it as it's own thread and have a link the the FTB thread
