Question Help!! Advice on buying a tj

I am in the market for a wrangler and I'm pretty decided on one, I'm goig to take a look at it this week and I wanted to get a second, and vastly more informed opinion. He is asking nine grand and said he will throw in a trailer hitch bike mount with it...but it doesnt have a full top. This is the list of upgrades and maintenance that has been done to it, Please let me know what ya think....

1998 jeep tj. 4.0 5 speed manual. 4" suspension lift. Incredible maintenance history. New clutch, rebuilt engine, newer exhaust, new hardware through the rear suspension (was the problem I initially overlooked), radiator, water pump, thermostat, distributer, spark plugs, brakes, etc.

33" mud terrain tires mounted on crager soft 8's with 1000 miles. Full sized spare. 1500

Hp30 chromoly axle shafts ARB locker and 4.56 cryo treated gears
Rear Dana 44 with chromoly shafts, ARB locker, trussed, cryo treated gears 4500

Teraflex hi steer 1 ton steering upgrade 827.99
Teraflex disc brake conversion 600

Spidertrax 1.25" spacers all the way around 200

TnT Customs stinger bumper 400
TnT Customs license plate relocation bracket/cb whip mount 50

Warn xd9000i with Viking synthetic rope and safety thimble 1500

Uniden 520xl with firestik and coax 120

Poison spyder rocker knocker sliders with rails 375
Poison Spyder trail corners with round led taillights 220

New fitted neoprene seat covers 275

Hella driving lights mounted on kc windshield brackets 120

Half doors with slider windows and soft windows tonneau cover 750

Sye and cv driveshaft 500

Adjustable trackbar 300

Adjustable rear control arms 275

Brand new bilstein 5100's 340

Aftermarket CD player, SoundBar, subs, and amp 950

Fresh oil change, tranny flush, transfer case flush, and differential oil

The bad, front fender got dented on Holy Cross last week. The rest of the body and paint are in amazing shape and corrosion and are rust free.

How many miles? Heck, if it was 180,000 I would still buy that in a heartbeat. Everything he did sounds like he did it right. No cut corners and no useless parts.

True, maybe hes hard up or in a pinch. My son picked up an Audi A4 quattro for 3G because the guy needed $$$ fast.
