Don't feel bad, there will always be another one. And the next one will probably be even better. You'll be a proud Jeep owner, its probably already in your blood. I can feel it. The thrill is cleaning all that caked mud and remembering the fun you had getting it there.

biddo63 Just my 2 cents. But for 4k if frame is all rusty but rest is in good shape you could part it out and make over your 4k back. I have seen hard tops go for about 1k and full doors sell at about $800. then motor tranny axels transfer case ect ect. Te
hen go buy one with a better frame. A little hassle but may be better in long run.

I like the mileage on this one and it runs and drives awesome, think I am going to pull the trigger on it. What do you guys think?
Be prepared to do a frame swap, which, if you've got a chain fall, and a tree/ sturdy beam. You can do for the cost of the frame. It's really not that hard to do, or so I've been told.

That was April 2012, but it still makes be question this whole thing. Seems funny that it was also around $4000.

SAABseanSCANIA Personally, I wouldn't pay 4K for a jeep I KNOW I have to do frame repairs to; but the mileage is low, so do what you wish! The last TJ (1997) I bought with frame repairs needed I paid 1900 and the repairs weren't even that bad; my opinion is $4,000 is a stiff price considering I sold the repaired TJ for $4600 after I went through it (lots of profit for me, but the owner got a road and inspection ready ride with no work or money required like that one will require).

My .02 anyways

jherrington Unless you are prepared to do a frame swap, I wouldn't.

Jhmace9 It says it has frame rot so be prepared for that.
