does this sounds like a good deal?

I have a chance to pick up A 92 Wrangler yj for 1700 dollars. Its not in bad shape, a little surface rust around the hinges, but if I pick it up, I plan on a paint job anyways. Its got the 2.5 4 cylinder, 5-speed 4 by 4 with 145,000 miles. Runs good drives good. Is this a good deal?

Right in the "value" ballpark.

Check for rusted out floor pans UNDER carpet.....
Check for serious frame rot........
Check to make sure it will go into 4 Hi....4 LO...... and DRIVE it in them. This will check for AXLE/GEARING mismatches.

Everything else is kind of superfluous ......

Yeah that is very cheep, at least from where i am from. Look for rust on the frame cuz that is a killer,rust on the floor is not a deal breaker as long as they are not huge holes in the foot wells. Also check that the 4X4 works and that all light work, also ask where he parks it and look for leaking fluids. BEST OF LUCK MY FRIEND!

Alright I did check it out , put it in 4 wheel low hi, took it to a mechanic who put it on a lift . No frame rot, no rust other than a little surface rust around the hinges, its got new bushings all around, new shocks, new clutch, new clutch master, and a new top.

These posts are so true they are making me laugh. I stumbled on my 95 and needed to decide right away. Got it for a very nice price BUT:

1. Leaking rear diff
2. Wouldn't go into 4wd. Different ratio axles
3. Driver floor rotted out.

Wish I knew what to look for ahead of time! It's been a fun project ill tell you that much!

I think that sounds like a very good deal to me. I would scoop it up if I were you.

Only thing I've had to do to it since I got it, was to change all the fluids, oil change and tune up, and the radiator had a slight leak, so I replaced it. Its a good rust free platform to do a build on
