    Hey all, looking to get rid of my quad and getting a Jeep as I had my 5th back surgery this winter. I got offered a partial trade of cash and a 98 Wrangler Sahara. Haven't seen it except for pictures. Has a lot of miles but only 70k on new motor. I know they can have frame issues, is there anything else I should look for? Looking forward to hitting the woods again!
