Is this a good deal?

Is $14,990 a good deal for the following specs? (seller has come down some already during negotiations)

2004 Jeep Wrangler "Sport"
67,500 miles
Stock, not been lifted
Flame Red
2-door (full-size doors)
4.0L I-6 cyl
Soft top (new Bestop)
Cruise control
Tow hitch
New tires (30x9.5 R15 Owl All-terrain); new spare

It has a clean Carfax report and I had a good third-party vehicle inspection which noted new front rotors and good ones on the back. Seems to be in overall good condition for a 2004.

FWIW I bought mine which was about the same specs as above except mine had about 90,000 miles and a hardtop for about a grand less. Mine also had new tires, brakes, rotors, and KC lights on the windshield. I looked at it as being a good clean rig to start with, it hadn't been hacked up or botched up by someone else.

2003 TJ 4.0, Auto, 30/35...sold

You should be able to find one for much less with maybe having to travel some 15,000$ is too much for that

Bought a red 05 TJ Wrangler in excellent condition with a soft top in August with 52,000 on it. Has a 4.0 with 6 speed tranny. Bought it for $11,000. The only thing it needed was new tires since the originals were about worn out. Be patient the deals are out there. I looked for three months to find this one. This dude just wanted payoff.

A little older but FWIW I bought my 98 TJ almost 4 years ago. 55,000 miles, 4.0 6 cyl, soft top, kc fog lights and new tires all the way around for 8,000. I would bet, with some hunting you could come down closer to 10,000$.
