From the pics it looks like a solid TJ. Flares are a little faded, but hell what doesn't get a little faded in the AZ sun.

What kind of budget are you looking to stay under. I know of a silly well built Wrangler Unlimited that is in the 20k range.

Not bad. Nice that this one has what looks like a 4" lift allready, some large tires, and its not a bad price for the mileage either. I'd get it.

plus it says it gets great gas mileage, must be rare. I think its worth it if you dont care about auto or stick.

Looks good. However, the listing should say Inline 6 (not V-6).

I'd do a CarFax report and make sure you climb underneath to check for damage. 76K miles it's barely broken in.

Good luck

ok thanks for the input guys. unfortunantly jack my budget is about half that so that LJ is kinda out of range and i figure a little krylon on the flares and im good. then i would prob herculine the tub cuz the carpet is taken out. im hopefully gonna check it out this weekend. And yea ill def be crawling under it to check it all out

Find out if he has the rest of the top, and ask about why no carpet?

I like the 2nd one a lot more, but it has higher miles
I painted my fender flares, VERY easy to do, just had to pay $3 for the Krylon paint
they look brand new

yea i had planned on krylon for those flares if i ended up goin with that one. and im not sure which one i am leaning towards more. The red tj has more done to it but has higher miles. and the green one doesnt look like it was taken care of as much, but i can add the mods i want to...

i think i would keep looking green one looks like it may have been road hard red one looks nice but high miles and i like the full hard doors with soft top much i mean much nicer than soft plasic side windows look on ebay i think both are a little high with the way gas prices are going for 9k you should be able to get something with less than 75k miles and fairly new but its your money buy what makes you happy
