Should i buy it?

I seen a 97 Cherokee with a 60k mile Jasper 4.0 for sale. No front drove shaft so i don't know if the 4wd works and there isn't any reverse. But it runs great and in pretty good shape. They want $300 so like a good deal? He still drives it daily. Would it be a good toy?

For 300.00 you cant go wrong. You can sell the parts off it for more than that. If you have the time and money to make it right, I say go for it. If not, just pay the asking price and part it out.

Sweet I think I will. There are a lot of little problems like no a/c and stuff like that nothing a good solid day of work could fix up so the only major problems would be the shaft and tranny. If I get looking at it and it's just to much work I'll part it out and keep the motor for y yj

Do not forget if you want to find parts go to a pick and pull and you might the parts you need for cheap.
