If it's not all rusted out or beat to death, and it has a D44 rear diff, then yeah, it's probably not a bad deal, IMO. Offer $7k and see if he bites....

Probably want to check and make sure it has a SYE with that 5" lift and the D44. Sounds like he has some good extras to come with it...

Check your rear. 35" tires on a D35 is not a good thing. Look for a metal fill plug on the diff cover. If it's metal, it's the D44....if it's rubber, it's the D35.

If the Jeep is very clean and the motor and drivetrain was regularly maintained, I say buy it. I paid $8,900 for a stock 2000 Sahara with 69,000 miles. IMO, you can never have too many Jeeps if the price is right.
