If you’re the sort of person who likes to take their Jeep off-roading and use it what it’s really meant for, you’ll already be familiar with the incredible highs you can get from testing your vehicle’s limits to the max.
You’re probably also familiar with the downsides associated with the activity. Like any vehicle-related hobby or professional motorsport, off-roading comes at a price. Though Jeeps are probably the most resilient vehicles out there, there’s no denying the amount of toll a couple of sessions out in the dirt or on the rocks can take on your car. Unless you happen to have a sponsor or a neigh-on unlimited budget, you’re fully aware of the costs associated with even recreational off-roading.
As with everything though, there’s a solution. Here, that solution lies in used auto parts. No, we’re not talking about old, worn-out components which can no longer function and do the task they were designed to do. What we’re talking about, is much, much better.
Why choose Used Jeep Wrangler Auto Parts?
Obviously, the number one reason is cost. A used component can be two to three times less expensive than a completely brand new one. Perhaps that’s not as important for smaller, inexpensive parts, but in the grand scheme of things, you could literally be spending less than half of the budget used to purchase brand new parts. This goes double if you buy a quality used Jeep instead of forking out for a new once.
Are the used components twice to three times worse? Absolutely not. Most of the used parts come from donor vehicles which have either been abandoned or damaged in one way or another. The good parts get salvaged and passed on to other enthusiasts for a third of the price of the same new component. Not only will the used parts be up to the job, but they’ll most likely last just as long as a new part.
This has two major implications for you and your Jeep. For starters, you’ll be able to use it more, without the worries that you might break something. Instead of constantly biting your fingers about all the possible things you can damage, you can focus on the driving and just have fun. Because used parts are usually the ones taking the hit when off-roading anyway, it won’t matter if it was a used part or a new one when you happen to break it on the trails. Effectively, this means you’ll be able to afford several used components for the price of a single new piece. Now we don’t know about you, but that sounds like a pretty good trade.
Secondly, with the extra money you’ll be saving, you can further improve and upgrade your Jeep in more ways than one, such as fitting chunkier off-road tires, installing a light bar, and perhaps even a winch. The possibilities are endless. When you look at it that way, by using used parts you’re actually getting a better-equipped truck than you would have if you had used new parts. With a used Jeep Wrangler part, you’ll be out there performing to 100% immediately, getting the most from your time and money in an off-road sport that you love.
Jeeps and Off-Roading
Jeep has a long history with off-roaders. In fact, that’s how the company officially got its name during World War Two, thanks to its sturdy and trusty Willys. Fast forward well over a decade, and you find Jeep is still very much in the same position, ahead of its rivals and innovating in the SUV/pickup segment. Jeep has become such a popular brand that in certain European countries the word “Jeep” is used to describe any SUV vehicle, regardless of its brand. Such is the marquee’s brand image and recognition.
From the Wrangler Rubicon all the way to the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, it’s a matter of personal preference really. Do you want a simple-as-you-like off-roader which can go pretty much anywhere, or a genuine luxury SUV designed to tackle the toughest of trails? The truth is you can’t go wrong with any of Jeep’s models, so it’s all in what you want.
With rumors of a new JL Wrangler Pickup well on its way, Jeep is even looking to expand its model lineup and enter its small compact SUV into the world of pickups. Apparently, the truck is inching closer to production with each passing day, and it should see the light of day sometime early-to-mid 2018. Whether Jeep decides to release any official information or renderings before that is anyone’s guess.
So there you have it. If you want to save a great deal of your hard-earned cash on parts you’re probably going to replace in the future anyway, go used. Even if you don’t happen to break that particular part, chances are the used component will last just as long as a new one. If it’s a popular name brand, it might even outlast a new component as well.
