Well, i'm going to look at an '02 Sport with my dad after I get out work today. Black Hard and soft top, yellow, the same one I linked to at the bottom of page 1. Fingers crossed! I know the driver seat has a few rips on the side. Price isn't too bad either.

Well I have finally purchased one!

It is a dark green '97 Wrangler Sport with 113k miles, tan hard top, black soft top, everything looked really good for a 12 year old Jeep. Ran and shifted well. No water whatsoever in the foot wells, it was bone dry. Had a bunch of receipts of service done on it. Minor surface rust on the frame. I could tell it was taken care of. He said it leaks power steering fluid slightly and needs to top it off every 6 weeks or so. Hopefully that won't be too much to fix. I has a Dana 35 but that will do for now.

Worked out a deal for $4500 cash. Going to get it on Saturday to pay him and he is actually going to help me install the soft top to show me how it goes on. Seemed like a nice guy. He was selling because he is going back to the UK.

Photos when I get it
