What do you think about this YJ?

Bought a TK last month and really have the bug to replace my Cherokee with a 2-door. Been reading up on TJ's as there are some around for sale. This is the first YJ I've seen for sale in great shape.

Been doing some reading of past posts trying to get a feel for the YJ. There is one for sale in my area that looks great. Wondering what you think? Here's a link to the ad:

1991 JEEP WRANGLER 6 cyl AUTO

It's about 1-2 hours away so I wanted to research more before making the trip. That way I can pull the trigger if it meets my expectations...

Thanks, I appreciate any insight.

i love yj's but they aren't for everyone. thats on the hi side for a yj also. you can find nice ones for 3-4 grand depending on your area.

check floors, windshield frame, rockers, and frame for rust. if its very clean, and you like the wheels and the color and everything about it, then its worth it, if not the price is a little hi

maybe if he'd meet ya at 45oo it wouldn't be too bad.

The biggest advantage to it is the 1991 has fuel injection. If I had done more research on it I would have looked for one of that year. But mine is a 1990 with a carb. Since I replaced it with the MC2100 I am VERY pleased with it. That does seem a little high and being it is from NY you can expect some rust and holes in the floor board behind the seats where the roll bar is bolted. Check your frame for rust holes. But for me the jeep is both a pleasure and a pain. I love it but it does need attention. I say I am rebuilding it and my wife says it is nickle and dimeing us to death. All a matter of preception. Well good luck and if it 'fits' you get it.

Looks nice to me. I assume that is 119,000 miles. If it doesn't need any thing the price isn't too bad. A lot of $3,500 YJs need $2,000 worth of work or more to make them reliable.

I'm guessing 119k also. From these pics he sent, it does look great.

one of the cleanes yjs i ever done seen..

priced high
but worth it believe it or not...

i mean, thats what i would ask for that rig if i had it.

BUT, in actuality, its technically a $3,500 jeep given the specs/condition.

there is an ass for every seat, and that guy will prolly git very close to that askin price given the condition alone.

that is a tough find.

Pros- nice condition, nice wheels/tires, auto

cons-price, base seats, needs a lift, nothing really special, auto

5200 is steep. only if it has new exhaust, brakes, shocks, recent tuneup, no rust.

i'd say it might be a little on the high side, but i bet he'll 5k for it no prob. thats a super clean yj, and hes got two tops.

hard tops sell in half azzed condition for 500 bucks around here, and full hard doors like that for 500+. if you are looking to resell it for money.....it might be too high. if you're looking for a keeper or to play for a while, id say go for it.

^^^^ I know this, i bought mine for $3,500, then had to replace the cylinder head with all gaskets, change all of the fluids, turn signal switch cuz i lost turn signals first then brake lights. Knock on wood i dont think i could have much more, but wouldnt trade it after all the work i have done to it now!!!
