Need opinion!!!

Buying a jeep wrangler today. NEED HELP!!!! PLEASE!!!?
So im going to go checkout a jeep wrangler today. a '88 yj manual inline 6. and it has 188,XXX miles on it, BUT the guy said he had the engine rebuilt less than 40,000 miles ago. and i checked out the garage that did it and they seem good. the reviews were good. and last night i checkout a 92 4 cylinder and it was a sled, it was so slow and the exhaust was really loud. Are all the wranglers exhaust loud like that? what should I listen for when we test drive it today? What kind of questions should i ask the person, besides maintenace and when the last time the clutch was rebuilt/replaced...
and do you think this is okay for it to have 180,000 miles on it, do you think the suspension and the gear bearing...etc will be okay/still good?

My Opinion!

While I think Jeeps are generally indestructible (we've owned 5 so far), I really think you're pressing your luck on the older one with 188,000 miles on it. Obviously the 1992 doesn't seem to be much better. I'd suggest looking a bit further before you buy. Not trying to discourage you but I think both might be money pits waiting to be opened to suck your resources down the drain. Just my opinion.
