Thinking about buying 2k6 Golden Eagle

I totaled my brand new truck earlier this month, and decided to look for a Jeep. A local dealer has a 2006 Golden Eagle for sale, was originally listed for 16995, and is now down to 11550. Its a 6spd manual, with 73k mi. Hard top, good tires, black. Its has KC daylites on the windshield, and looks like the previous owner had a cb on the center console, there are 4 screw holes on the top.

I haven't crawled under it yet, going to look at it again tomorrow and take it for a spin. Wondering what you guys thought of it?

With 73k on the clock, I seriously doubt that the PO had much time for offroading. As long as it has been serviced and maintained properly you should be fine with that heep. I'd run a carfax and check it out on and then invest in an hour of a good mechanic's time.
