What do you think of this jeep?

I may be buying this jeep this week and to me it seems like a very good price, im goin tomorrow to testdrive and find out more. the only thing im worried about is that its the 2.5 motor. has it been a good motor and does it produce some decent power on and off road?

Looks clean, low miles. I had a 2.5 in my last jeep and sold it after I bought my yellow jeep with a 4.0 in it. The 2.5 is a good motor but lacked the power I needed in the mountain passes. I was getting passed my semi trucks. If it were me I would keep looking, you can find a descent jeep with a 4.0 for that price.

My first and second Jeep (first got stolen) was a 97 4 banger. Luckily it was still 97 and I could get one that model year. I ended up putting a 4" skyjacker lift with 33" tires. Like jameslee said, it was a dog when it needed power. But I never had a single problem with it. Look around and get a 4.0....

But it because it's yellow....
I know a lot of things, most of them are only correct in my own head...
Better to be judged by twelve then carried by six. I'm sure this is going to get me in trouble down the line
