To our team at Wickstrom Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, there is nothing quite like piloting a Jeep Wrangler. Rugged, powerful, and fully capable, there is a reason why the Jeep Wrangler is so popular. That said, before you purchase a used Jeep for sale from Craigslist or your neighbor, you should know what to look out for.

Buying a used Jeep Wrangler isn’t like buying any other used car. While your typical road vehicle may have some wear and tear from riding on the pavement, a Jeep Wrangler usually travels beyond ordinary roads. Many adventurous owners drive their Jeep Wrangler SUVs on rigorous trails that take them through some of the roughest terrain possible, which means their vehicle might experience additional wear and tear.

When shopping for a used Jeep Wrangler, we recommend that you check the undercarriage of the vehicle, including all of the components housed there. The last thing you want to worry about is a busted pipe or fuel line, and even with great skid plates and ground clearance, a Jeep Wrangler can still experience this kind of damage from off-roading.

We also suggest that you check for any rust. When driving off-road, chances are drivers will encounter plenty of water, which can cause extremely harmful rusting. While this can seem like a visual issue, excessive rust can be a telltale sign of further mechanical damage.

Fortunately, when you purchase a Jeep Wrangler from our used Jeep dealership, you’ll know you’re getting a vehicle that’s been inspected from top to bottom. From base models to range-topping Jeep Wrangler Unlimited SUVs, we have it all at Wickstrom Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM.
