6500 isn't a bad price for it, granted you'll have at least another 1000 into new rims and tires.

Still better than Jk door handles... Since they're permanent.

To each his or her own. Heheh. As a newb to this forum, I've seen folks throw ten times the worth of the Jeep in mods, some that don't quite make sense to the "quorum", given the typical daily intended use. So be it. I can't get down with 22" wheels on a TJ... ever. However, I respect the seller's ambition of personal expression and tire pressure. Like the previous poster indicated, this could be a steal with the right cash in hand.

I think that looks great? Right now I'm running 23 inch wheel and tires, with my jeep lowered with LED under glow.

Buy it and sell the wheels and tires. Use that money for upgrades or wheels and tires of your liking. I agree 22s don't belong on a Jeep (or another vehicle for that matter) but there will be plenty of people on CL or EBay that will happily be separated from their $$$ for them.

To bad its not closer to me. For that price I'd buy it, put new rims and tires on it and still come out cheaper than I bought my '06 for.

heck yeah, if the rest is in good shape, you can sell those wheels/tires easy. Get a set of steel crager's or something. And have cash left over for other upgrades.

Depending how much you can get for those wheels. You may be able to sell it and still make a little on it. If it has functional wheels/tires on it, you may be able to sell it for a little more.

then take the proceeds and buy stuff for your jeep.

Yup I'd buy it in a heartbeat but I would haul it home in an enclosed trailer so nobody could see it with those wheels/tires.

no accounting for taste, I belong to an F350 forum as well and I see guys doing that to their trucks too, to each his own I guess. I've never been a fan the larger rims that are popular these days. Give me some 15" solid Center Lines anyday..

The seller probably beat the crap out of that Jeep, then for the sake of people thinking like most here, bought some big rims and tires and posted it. Now, people would stand in line to buy something that is about to fall apart....

Most likely not the case, but it would definitely work if there weren't visible signs of abuse.

$6500 for a 97? That's crazy. I paid less than $3500 for my 97 with the same miles 3 years ago.
