Hi I am sixteen just got my license and basically my family is getting tired of sharing cars, etc. Me and my dad decided to start looking for another car, we wanted to get something similar to what I was originally driving a 2001 Jeep Cherokee Classic.
Well after a little bit of searching we found a "1991 Jeep Wrangler" on Craigslist it has a 3 inch "Skyjacker" lift kit, fat mud tires and it only has 80,000 miles on it.
My father and I went to check it out and test drive it. My first impressions were the tires how deep the treads were and how far they stuck out. I tool some pictures of the car, so that I could get some other opinions on it.
Here are the pictures of it,

> Its a Jeep Wrangler, one of my favorite modern car designs
> Same engine as my previous car, some parts are even the same to
> 3 Inch Skyjacker lift
> Comes with a hard top as well as a soft top
> Nice Stereo with I-pod connecter (Either Sony, Jensen or Kenwood)
> Looks pretty awesome!
> It needs
: One new back seat-belt clip
: 3 Mirrors side and rear-view
> Light cosmetic rust
> Front left fender is smashed downward,
> No cold air conditioning but their is heat, (I think it might be lack of coolant maybe a leak?)
> Possible exhaust leak, from the gasket? It makes alot of noise? <(I like it personaly)
> When the 4-Wheel drive is engaged it makes a clicking noise
> The right bottom and second to bottom rear leafs look out of whack? See the link bellow, look at the bottom two leafs
What do you guys think, is it worth it he is asking 4,000$ for it with the hard top? The guy actually also pointed out the flaws directly to us that the car had, so its not like he was really trying to hide anything from us. The driving also felt "Mushy" at best, but I am thinking that might be the gigantic wheels on it and driving it on pavement?
Should I go for it?
Also thank you for any and all help or opinions given!
