Question New from KY - looking to buy for my wife

We're looking for a Jeep Wrangler for my wife - needs to be auto trans.

Hoping to stay within our budget of $15,000 max

Intended use is just for my wife's run around, but would most likely seek out local off-road enthusiasts.

I have sifted through many Craigslist posts in my area and made a short list, and the below is currently at the top of the list.
Looks like this one is well prepared for off-road fun.

Please offer your thoughts, opinions and advice.

Get this over to the TJ folks and let them check that out.

As mentioned, because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. I suggest you check out this forum area and post your questions there, I think you'll get a better response.

Thanks for the welcome.

I have posted my advice request in the TJ section, even though we're still looking, we would most likely be going with a TJ.
