It really depends what you are looking for.....DD/ hard core off-road rig/ a family hauler, (like a JKU) something to wrench on and build?

JMO but whatever you decide to get I would try and find as close to stock as possible!!

Good advice JP, it's easier to build up your reputation than modding down...

Check for rust, over spray from recent paint, see if fluids have been changed, breaks, tires, any strange noises, make sure everything works properly and just shop around for price.

winch ,DS and rears are nice, 6" lift is a bit much for 35s and if its short arms you will be unhappy . The steering is not one of the more desirable designs either. I wouldn't pay 11 either .

IDK that much about Jeep prices...I have seen some wild gaps from what people on here have said they paid....IMO that Jeep owner is trying to get back his money for the mods....and unless that Jeep is Modded EXACTLY like you want it, you get to pay to change the mods.....Yes the miles are good..... but IJDK...also (and maybe just a pic) but the one straight on from the front looks as if the JEEP is leaning towards the passenger side.

Maybe I notice, or think I notice this, because my '04 did this....I replaced with OME lift and spacer to level it back out....not a cheap fix. The only way I could tell for sure was to use a tape measure on all 4 corners.

Good Luck!
