foreman1979 Thanks for the input guys. I appreciate it.
I actually already own a 95' with a 6 cyl, manual. It does great. I was just looking to make some money. I might throw a $3500 offer at him and see what he says.

YHSublime I'd say you'd have yourself a deal at $4000, IMO. I'd say a steal at $3500. I'm not crazy about the 4 bangers either, I'd recommend a test drive where you can really open er' up, and see how you like it, something tells me you'll be looking for a 6.

ellman605 I drive a 4 banger on 33s. I pass most everyone on the highway here no problem. Get 17ish mpg too. Just need to know how to drive it.

LuvMyTJ Yeah, your right with 31's or smaller, you would get by pretty well. I had 33's and I wasn't going to re-gear it with a tiny motor & axles. What was worse was the AX-5 tranny, what a crappy tranny that was. I did OK with it offroading, but it just sucked on the x-way tryin to push that brick down the road.

hoboman08 i have a 98 4 cyl and it does great! its no race car, but its not supposed to be. i have no problem making interstate speeds with my 31's

LuvMyTJ My first Jeep was a 4 banger... never again. It was a daily driver and could not even make the limit on the x-way. If it is for mostly offroading, it can be built, and you will get by.
But trust me on this one... get a 6 cyl. if at all possible.
The one you posted does not seem to be a screamin deal to me.

gotpepsi Not to bad for a daily driver, or weekend worrior. Get a 4cyl or a 6cyl depending on your future plans for the jeep. i dont think that's a bad price, low ball him and see if he'll sell

jebby depends if u can be happy with the d35 and 4cyl? if your ok with it make a low offer and go from there.... if not hold out never know they may take a low offer

cork1958 Doesn't blow my hair back at all, especially with a 4 cyl. in it.

Not into A/T's at all either.

MikalCarbine 4 cylinder ftl, find one with at least a 6 and a d44 if you want to be truly satisfied
