Looking to buy a Jeep

I'm moving to Hawaii in May. I'm wanting a Jeep and prefer the 98-2005 models due to the coil springs BUT like this '83 model. My self imposed budget is $10k but have money saved up to cover more. Tell me what you think about this Jeep. Keep in mind that prices in Hawaii are a bit higher.

**** 1983 Jeep CJ 7 ****

This CJ looks nice. I would look at it if this is the way you want go. My questions would be what upgrades were done. I would also look at the frame to ensure no cracks!!! Just my opinion. $13k seems a bit much, but if the rebuild was done right it might be worth that especially in Hawaii.

I had a 81 CJ 7 and I loved it. This Jeep looks Good from the pic but indeed check the frame over real good as well as the engine...if it is real good I would offer less and go from there.
