I'm a Commander owner in search of a TJ. Budget of $10K. Moderate off-road use mostly here in So. CA, so mostly dusty, rocky roads. Want to bring my 2 1/2 year old son.
Two Jeeps popped out in my search. A one owner 1997 TJ Sahara with no mods, hardtop, 126K on I6 with auto tranny (is that a 3-speed?) for 8988 at local dealership. I would try for $7.5k.
And this one:
Jeep Wrangler--------selling 7,500 less than worth-------
which seems like a good deal, but almost too good so I'm a little suspicious.
Any buying advice appreciated. Especially hard top/soft top, I6/4cyl, Auto/Manual, with mods or without, etc.
