Newb question

Ok, heres my problem.

I was in the middle of a deal with 2 people. #1 was to trade my snowmowbile and older laptop for his jeep. #2 was to trade the jeep for a mustang. Well after I madde trade #1, trade #2 backed out of the deal. So I now have a 1988 YJ. I have it listed on craigslist here

I have talked with a local guy who is into jeeps (fixes and sells them all the time). Everything I have described .... he says is normal for that year jeep (rust and rot spots) .... and everything else is normal as far as if someone was making it an on-off road vehicle.

I would like honest opinions as far as what this is really worth .... and also about what cheap things I can do to make this more appealing to someone who wants a jeep.

I am planning on starting the repairs on monday. First it the frame spots and second will be the spot under the drivers door. Third will be to re-do the rhino lining inside since it was a very poor job done the first time. I have thought about those $100 body lift kits or suspension kits but was wondering if they are any good and also wouldn't I have to do something for the steering ??

Thank you very much.
