Question Newbie has questions about posible purchase of '03 Wrangler

Hello Everyone,
I just wanted to say thanks for having me. I am interested in receiving any helpful advice in regards to a Wrangler I'm interested in purchasing.

I currently am driving a Hyundai Accent and am finally looking to upgrade!
The Jeep I'm interested in is a 2003 Jeep Wrangler Sahara addition with 125,000km on it (Yes, I'm Canadian) The Jeep comes with soft top, hard top, air conditioning, standard, 4X4. The owner is asking $10,500. The Jeep has a nice body, hard and soft tops in good condition and custom rims. The Jeep does need new tires and does not come with factory rims. A little annoyed as I'm estimating $1000 for new tires alone.

I currently have the Jeep at a mechanic for a pre-purchase inspection. Depending on the outcome. Is the value worth the fact it needs new tires or what is a fair price for a vehicle such as this?

Thank you everyone and I'm looking forward to eventually becoming a proud Jeep owner!

Welcome, sounds right if it were in my neck of the woods. My '01 sport was $8500.00. Good luck..
Nothing to it but to do it.

Thanks guys! The biggest issue is the rear pinion seal is leaking and it will cost about $665 to replace. Everything else is running great. So, we came to the agreement of $9,200 which is a very fair price for me and the seller. I'm happy and will be picking up my sexy Jeep at some point today! YAY!
