Get down and look under for rust, especially check the frame. Tapping the frame/underbody with a screw driver handle will help. If you find rust, poke the screw driver in it, and check how deep it is.

How does it drive? How does the clutch/transmission feel? How does the steering feel, any play? Get a car fax.

Price is good for NE Wyoming/Western So Dak, but work on it. Good luck!

That's a little steep, at least in my area. Try to knock 'em down to 10 or 10,500. 10,800 tops.

It looks nice! I love that color. And the tires look real nice.

that's what the kbb on it is for retail. of course ill try to knock an down some, it's a dealer you always have to knock em down some lol. I figured it's a pretty good price considering the condition price and new tires, so anything I knock em down on is an even better deal

We are near the same area an I think that's about the going rate for jeeps around here. Of course you see good/great deals every once in a while, but for the mileage & condition I'd say it's a fair price, especially for a dealer.

Try out the 4whl drive, hi and low gears, make sure that is in working order, drive around in the parking lot in a circle you will feel the 4whl drive ingauging and should feel it grabbing. Don"t be afraid to shift in and out a few times
