Question type: Car Customization

Jeep in pristine condition.  seller has replaced stock transmission with a 4 speed manual "geared lower for improved performance off road and on".  Buying for our son who's turning 16....drives on roads.  Would this be a good idea or bad? (4 speed conversion)

Mileage is going to be bad if it is geared low, would be good rig for under 50 mph, I would not recommend this type of rig for a new driver that is not a off road person. Remember Wranglers have a high roll over rate. Find him a good older mid or full size American car until he gets some mileage under his belt. But if I was going to buy it for myself I would not hesitate a bit as I like staying off of the blacktop.
