    Still though, get it checked out as good as you can, even if you have to pay a mechanic to do it. I would pull the diffs and look at the gears/lockers, check the tranny/TC fluids and their color, even check the oil. The color of those fluids can indicate what if any problems could be in there. Or, if they are fresh could indicate regular maint, or trying to hide a problem. Also any and all receipts would be nice.

    Good luck.

    In the end only you can really place the value; its kinda hard sometimes because there are so many individualized ones so the reality is it depends on what each mod is that you agree with and the ones that you dont agree with is something you can live with. From what I can see, the set up is good for wheeling, and as I understand it, all good mods. Good gear ratio, good strong rear, and lockers so there is some money put in it. See if you can get what lockers they have, and do a search on them to get a feel for their quality; hard top is a plus, and less than 100,000 miles. So I would think between 7-8k would be a decent price.

    Ok, I have to admit, I really like that jeep, and would really consider working the deal on that one. To me however $9800 is quite an investment; but none the less if someone could look it over real good and give a thumbs up I would consider it. Offering a low amount first working up to what I would determine a final deal breaker, If I couldnt get it for that then I would walk away. Not sure how I would value that guy, its a nice jeep for sure....

    As for my home, lol, Im east by hours. Center of the state literally (if you split Seattle and Spokane.)

    Ephrata is the town, about 20 minutes north of Moses Lake. I still have lots of family on the west side from Lake Stevens, down to Tenino along the I5 corridor. So basically Im in the desert, Columbia gorge area; lots of back roads and mountain roads to play on. Today was about 99 degrees, and the jeep was nearly unbearable.

    Doin' pretty good, too many issues working on rigs this last week; not to mention my dumbass reached in the jeep, hit the ignition, and the dang thing was in reverse. Tore into my wifes '66 Mustang so now I have some more parts to buy.

    That is a pretty nice jeep, although the 4cyl brings the price down a bit. Do you know if it has a top? Without a top drops the price accordingly; but I would think around $6k-$7k ish would be reasonable.

    I do however, like that one.

    oh, and hopefully not to harp too much on it, but 33" tires with stock gears would be a bit high unless you can verify they are a 4.10 or something like. I believe the 90 came with a 3.55ish gear ratio stock with the auto, putting you at about 2300 rpm at 60. Not too bad, but a bit high... IMO. But still very usable.

    Quick disconnect means they put in a mod to disconnect the sway bar(s) for off roading. Then when you are to get back on the hwy home you can put them back on quickly; usually a quick pull pin and it removes the endlink to the sway bar.

    I run with out the sway bar, but I have a stiff suspension lift so I only have a little more body roll on the road but nothing worth putting the sway bar back in. It rides really rough when its in.

    That 90 is much like what I would buy, with the exception of the auto. But looks like a good start otherwise. Drive it first to be sure you can deal with the auto; in the past I would not buy one after test driving it, they were really gutless with the auto, at least the ones I test drove. That was the determining factor for me not buying them. But if it drives fine and you like it with the auto, then its all good.

    No prob, anytime. If I may, I would suggest waiting for the right one to come along. If you settle, you may not be as happy with it. Something I have had to learn over the years.

    Not a big fan of automatics; but looks nice. Looks like the price is at book value for a car lot, and 35" tires are about 3 sizes taller. Might depend on gear ratio with that one, but should get around decently.

    Is that closer to what you are looking for? 4 door, auto and such?

    oh, and... Lifts and axles depend on what rig you get and what you expect to do with it. I would start with the set up you got, determine what if any more clearance you need for the tires and for what you like, and go with that. Seems to me the newer rigs require changing the coil springs, and you would need new longer shocks to go with the lift. Sometimes you need to get other proper parts if you go too high, but generally up to a 2 or 3 inch lift doesnt require much other than the longer shocks. I suspect you wont need to do anything with the axles unless you find some stress points that start breaking things, then you will know to upgrade something.

    OH, btw, I have a spreadsheet calculator that calculates rpm/speeds with different gearing and tire sizes. If you want, I can email it to you; or if there is a way I can post it here, but I have not found out how to do that yet.
