2002 Jeep Wrangler to buy or not to buy (Help)

Hi I am looking to buy a used 2002 Wrangler Jeep to use to drive onto the beach and just cruise around. A friend of the family is selling Jeep Wrangler SE for $8k. It is a 4cyl and has about 125k miles. I would love to hear your thoughts. I have done some research and it seems like a reasonable price but I was told 6cyl is the way to go. Thanks in advance for your thoughts!!!!

That is way over priced for a 10 year old 4 cylinder... just my opinion. I wouldn't pay more than $5k and that would have to be pristene.

What have we got?
We have one heavily armed Recreational Vehicle

If your on the hunt, I would definitely recommend going with the i6 4.0 motor. Most people with the 4 cylinder complain that its a real dog...
