ztman Hate those ads that dont have pics not taken at the same time. One pic has the oem rear lights, the other pics have round ones, and the rear is bedlined but not the tail gate. Looks like this jeep has been patched together over the years. Take a close look at the wiring to see if the guy did it right, as well as all of the above identified areas

estcstwrangler I am going to take a look at it on sunday, with all that has been brought up, I will be looking at everything, frame, rust/rot, anything I should look for engine wise? noise? shifting? I know the windshields have rot problems, this one has been replaced as it doesnt match the jeep.

jk'n I'm thinking 3K looks a little high. Mine had 100K on the odometer and was a thousand less. There is going to be some rot on it you just have to look close enough. Check out the frame and body underneath well before spending that kind of money on it. He said that "we weilded new frame rails on for the skid plate mount" If he welded new frame rails, what does that mean about the condition of the frame rails? Look carefully.

myquite Most yj's and cj's have had their windshields replaced. They tend to rust out.

BCDonny Window frame looks red has it been replaced, and if so why ? Has the jeep been rolled or more rust problems Seems a little pricey to me, does not show in side pictures, why?

mbannin If the seller can verify all of the repairs and replacements with receipts, and the rust is not extreme, it looks like a very good deal to me.

buying my first jeep

I am looking at wranglers, and i have found a bunch thats look good but are missing things I am looking for or have major frame problems, have been lifted (not that I dont want a lifted jeep) want to do it myself and know what its been put through after the lift

ran across this and I am going to take a look. I am thinking its worth $3000

1993 Jeep Wrangler YJ 4.0

what should I look for when test driving this and inspecting around it? it has had the motor replaced, the body has 189,000 on it and the motor has 40k any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated
