Thanks XJ Knight.

Thats literally all the info I have.
Im negotiating with the owner now.
I am a HUGE newb to Wranglers so I don't even know what questions to ask.

What would you offer based on that info?

Ok guys, here's the response I got from the seller.


- What should my concerns be?
-What would you pay if it was you looking to buy?
Ps. I'm at the beach in SC so no plans to ever rock crawl with this or take in a bunch of mud. Just local trails and beach (sand) crushing in North Carolina.


- 100,276miles
- 4 cylinder
- AC/HEAT = Heat works, Needs AC compressor.
- Am/fm cassette
- ABS? = Not sure
- Hardtop? = No soft top
- General Condition? = Good condition
- How much tire tread left? = All terrain very good shape and tread


-Which axel in the rear? = Don't know what you want to know other than Lock Right Locker by Power Tracks
- Dana 35 or Dana 44?= I know it's not a 44
- What's the rust situation like? = Dime size spot on one door
- Do you know if it has a Slip Yoke Eliminator or does it use transfer case spacers? = Unknown
Cruise control? = No


-What would you pay if it was you looking to buy?
Thanks y'all are really helping a newb out!

Would you be concerned about the Dana 35 with 33x1250 tires. Some guys in here were saying with the diff locking it could break it?
