with that many miles it would probably go for 6-8 grand so thats not too low, I'm not an expert though so I don't know how much work it would need and how much that would cost.

I find it odd that he/she mentions a recent tune-up and a blown engine in the same add... If all it really needs is a new engine, you are looking at somewhere in the $3500 range with a rebuilt engine, and labor for someone else to install around me (at least that's what I paid a couple years ago). You would have to give it a good once-over to see what else may need done before buying, but that could be a good buy!

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

My .02$-Typically I've found that if engine maintenance was neglected enough to require a rebuild there will be much more to repair. Best to crawl under and around the vehicle.

I've spent $1,500 on parts in three months on my '97 Sahara that "only needs a pinion seal"!

Then again I'm pretty anal about maintenance!

Sounds too good to be true - just look at the parts involved - interior - hardtop possibly hard door - almost worth more in parts.
