New to forum: Looking at this jeep tonite

I just sold my 04 Silverado SS and am looking at getting into a jeep. I found this one near me so i'm gonna take a look tonight. What do you guys think?

2002 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4.0L (Straight 6) lifted, great weekend off-roader and everyday driver.
Original Owner
67,732 miles
Manual Transmission
7 1/2 Inch Lift (4 1/2 inch suspension and 3inch body)
High Lift Jack Included
36X15.5X15 Super Swamper TSL Tires
15X10 Aluminum Rims
Factory Full Steal Doors
Factory Hard Top with Roof Rack
Factory Soft Top With Tinted Windows
3-Piece Hummer Top
CD/MP3 Player with I-Pod Adapter
Many extras including security box


He said it has 4:10 gears and locking diffs.

Let me know what you guys think. Its the best thing i've found around me so far and about exactly what i'm looking for. Thank for the help

Looks pretty good. A couple things I would be concerned about would be the 3" body lift. Nix that, first thing. Replace it with a 1.25" body lift MAX. Also, running 36" tires on 4.10 gears isn't going to be much fun. If you want to keep the tires, you might want to think about regearing. That's gonna cost you $500-$600 per axle. Something to think about. Also, those tires are ultra-wide. She's probably gonna handle a bit weird. All in all it looks like a solid Jeep. What suspension lift is on it?

-EDIT- I love the color. I looked for a dark blue TJ when I was Jeep shopping, but could only find them in soft tops, and that wasn't an option for me at the time.

Remove the body lift. 4.11's are not the best choice for 36's. What axles is he got in it? What kind of lockers.

I'm not a fan of the body lift either, what gears and axles would be good for this. If i do buy I will probably go down to 33s or 35s when these tires wear. thanks for the quick replies so far

I would buy a stock with low miles for around 7,000 miles and build it myself with the money you save. It's always dangerous to buy someone else's build.

If your more into wheelin go for it as long as it's not to beat on the underside. You could gert rid of the 3" body lift sell those monster tires and use the money for some nice 33's then you could stick with the 4.11's and still have a bad @$$ lookin jeep.
