Exclamation New and need HELP

Hi I am a fellow Jeep lover and am finally about to buy one to call my own but I need advice on the price or just your input please!

It is a 1990 Jeep Wrangler Laredo:

-Mileage is 151,000
-Automatic 6 straight, 4.2L engine
-4DW (not used)
-New tranny
-Hard top and new bikini top with sunroof
-Brand new seat belts
-Brand new rotors on the front and brakes on the back
-AC and heater both work
-Brand new detachable face radio
-Brand new center console


-No cruise control
-No defroster
-No keyless entry
(like I mentioned im new to this so im not sure if above DS are even available in 1990 Jeeps)
-I havent gone to see it yet but he said, "Something is draining battery here and there. Battery is brand new now. Alternator is good."

Im going to test drive it this weekend and he is asking 5500 which if im guessing correctly is over priced? Any comments, opinions or advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

first off welcome to WF... and second thats kinda high. and you will be sorry without a defroster. If you buy it thats a huge thing to fix. its very dangerous in the winter.
and as far as draining the battery it could be the after market radio

Im a Vet and bled for my beliefs and was willing to die for them, what have you done for yours?
