Thinking of buying a JK

I'm thinking of buying a JK in a 4 door. What is more reliable  petty or diesel? 

Is the Auto reliable?

What else should I consider? Bus at means is be looking at something with around 200,000ks.

ARGS

hey mate, i have a crd and the torque is great, particularly if towing. Definitely recommend getting the auto if you got the diesel as the manual comes with a crappy dual mass flywheel (most convert this to a single). Only thing is for higher km CRDs I would be making sure that it has had a catch can installed for as much of its life as possible, regularly serviced every 5k etc. They are a great motor, but need to be serviced bang on. Jump on the Jeep Wrangler CRD facebook page, it's a great resource. Some videos on the diesel can be found here too: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCj6QdCf_VFsUZ8u727dfFWQ

Scoteye OP

Thanks for the Reply Args. As much as I wanted a JK it just wasn't to be.

Picked up a 2012 Prado GX. However primarily being the wife's vehicle it will open up the 2 door jeep option for myself, eventually.
