some sort of long control arms with a t-case drop. whatever it is, it's gonna need some work.

You are more than likely going to want an SYE and CD driveshaft to remove the transfer case drop kit and get some ground clearance back. If your upper rear control arms arent adjustable youll need a set of those to dial in the rear pinion angle. With just those two items you are looking at about $500-$800 if you do it yourself. If those items already exist then the previous owner is a moron and I would stay far far away from that Jeep.

The lower arms look to be adjustable and I would guess the tires are 33in in diameter so around 3-4in lift is on there.

i agree those would be wise choices in parts but im not understanding how he should buy them but if the PO did them he is moron, maybe im reading it wrong?

to say this jeep is junk either way i cant say without actually being able to go over it. you should go look at it and check it out

You read it wrong, If the PO already put on an SYE and DC shaft and left the TC drop on they are a moron. If I was to find that out I wouldn't buy the Jeep because who knows what else they did without actually knowing what they were doing.
