What motor and tranny?
Tires? Top? How's it drive? Body rust? Frame rust? Carpet?
Has the water pump and radiator been replaced.

4 liter inline 6 cylinder engine, manual... haven't seen it in real live yet --trying to prevent too much disappointment and doing moola first :} it comes with a hard top, and new tires.

some pics:

The radiator and water pump at 150k have more than likely been replaced. But ask because that Jeep looks really clean.

I wouldn't worry too much about the mileage, those 4 liters are known for their longevity if they are taken care of. Looks really clean man!

You can almost tell about a vehicle by the way the vehicle looks inside and out. If the seat and floors are stained. And the engine has oil everywhere. And the under carriage is greasy and dirty. And the tires show funny wear. Then you might want to look further into the vehicles mechanical abilities. Good luck my friend
