Good Deal?

Hey guys, need some opinions, which I know are abundant here May go look at a 2001 sport, auto, 4.0, AC, CD, pic has hard top but also has bikini and soft doors. Has a 3" Black Diamond lift, know nothing of that. Negative-119K and says he's has the head redone, asking 8500. I'm thinking less than 8 an ok deal. What do you think?

Really depends on what they go for in your area check KBB & craigslist. I would be a little concerned that he has had the head redone. Dig into that one deep. The 119k should not worry you too much as long as it was taken care of properly.

Kbb says PPV is good is 8600, fair 7600, so? I've been looking and they're going high, season i guess. There's a 99 with 92K, but softop only, looks well used for 8K. This guys says it's never been off-road. I'm not much of a mechanic, what would I be looking or listening for? Our 99 has 108 so I'm somewhat familiar. Guy says he's an anal mechanic, has taken great care of it.

Find out why the head was first off as that is a big concern. I always pull a spark plug when looking at a car as it will let you know the health of the engine. It should be a light tan color. Look under the Jeep for any damage from rocks or such. Look for oil leaks everywhere and how clean the engine is. If he is really that anal he will have records of what he did to the Jeep. Is he the original owner? I picked up a 2000 and the guy had every service record on the Jeep since day one. He had all the maintenance done when it should and it had tons of extras. The carpet still looks brand new.
