The one in Philadelphia is nice and cheap, but prices seem to be much higher here in the Seattle area. It's the first car I take a look to, just wanted to make sure I check for all the known weak points. Since the car will only be used for fun (3rd car) I think I could live with the 2.5, it's mainly for weekend fun.

I picked up my 94' up 3 years ago, solid jeep 98,000 miles 2.5,5speed for $2800.00 At that time that would be the most I would pay for a 2.5 but it was clean. But honestly $4 k is to high.
How many jeeps have you looked at? take your time you could find a clean 6 cylinder for that or less.
2.5 is a nice motor but not for large tires and recovery gear.
PICS ARE NICE.

|Coyote_94YJ||For a starting point and running stock or near stock sure its fine, but when you add larger tires and extra weight from recovery gear and tools I think it is a bit underpowered. For something to start out with they are reliable and economical but who buys a jeep for the mpg? I just don't see the sense in buying a 2.5L and later on doing a 4.0L swap when you can save the hassle of an engine swap by just getting a 4.0L from the start.|

Daiberl, you need to decide if you want more than a 4. lots of people here bought a 4 just to look to do a conversion now. buy what you want from the begining.

First I would like to congratulate you for choosing the right model of wrangler.
$4000 for a 2.5L with 145k on the clock....overpriced. Personally I wouldn't own a 2.5L. If there is a possibility you're going to get larger tires in the future and wheel it, get one with a 4.0L, you'll thank yourself later. But if the body is in tip top shape and this is the one you really want I wouldn't go more than $3300.

|dooder||do a walk around look at body for bubbling. look down the side for body repair. look at tires. roadtest it and make sure gauges work. check oil pressure cold and hot. listen for exhaust leaks and rattles. during roadtest shut it off and start it again. look under hood. check fluids. if all seems well take to a mechanic and get it checked out but be willing to give the asking price. If you want to haggle and get cheaper dont expect him to be bothered with getting checked out. just a little warning. i think price for a 4 cyl is a bit high but all depends on condition so this thing should be detailed clean including under the hood.|

I'm new to the YJ and I plan to take a look to a car tomorrow, what should I look for (besides rust around windowframe and floor boards)? Here is some information on the car, he is asking $ 4,000

Never been off road, completely stock aside from wheels and tires (a little bigger).
2.5liter- 4 cylinder, 5 speed, power steering and brakes, nice stereo/cd with amp and bass tube in the back.
145000 miles, still works perfect and just passed emissions.
all maintenance done and it's ready to go!
top's in good condition, all window panels in the top are clear and soft.
Thanks for any advice,
