Looking to buy my first Wrangler

Okay guys I'm new to the forum. My dad and I are looking into purchasing a used wrangler. We have seen some here and there but none that are worth the drive over to check them out. So recently we found a 2004 Columbia Edition that is priced at 6500. Now, it does have some flaws, the seller says it needs a new steering gear box, hood, and passenger fender to be drivable. My dad is a pretty handy guy when it comes to any repairs so if anything else needs replacement he could get it done. However the Jeep was in a small wreck which caused this damage. So i was wondering what else could possibly be wrong with it, and if this jeep is priced reasonably or not. Also it has 82k miles.

Welcome, you always have to be aware of accidental vehicles, not knowing is your enemy. However, the things you listed seem minor to a shade tree mech. The price is great, but consider the unknown. Good luck to you and try posting over in the TJ forum area for more responses...

Because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. I suggest you check out this forum area and post your questions there, I think you'll get a better response.
