Not quite yet

Not quite a newbie yet. I have the opportunity to buy a 1999 TJ sport 4.0 auto with 73k it's in decent condition Except for the original owner for the past 13 years was a heavy smoker. I'll replace he nerior if needed. It looks like the frame is OK. The likes up front are separated. I will have to look into what they are exactly. I hope his deal works out. Price is 5k. I think it's fair. Any input would be appreciated. I've wanted a Wrangle all my life and hope this is the one. I also have 2 kids 9 + 5. I here a back seat with head rests that will retro in?

Well to say the least I'm crushed. The Wrangler didn't pass the safety inspection. The TJ looked nice from the outside but wholly crap or should I say hole-E crap, Once it was on the lift it was Swiss cheese underneath. Frame and floor need to be completely redone. Dodged a bullet. Well the hunt continues. Thanks for the welcomes. I'll keep y'all posted.

Well the search has ended and I finally picked up a nice 1997 TJ Sport with an auto. The frame is solid. One body mount needs addressed. I will search the forums but can anyone tell me a good way to address surface rust. Any recommendations??? Kids love it and it drove great at highway speeds getting it home. "finally!!! Wavey back at all ya

Thanks a bunch. It was a blast to drive over the 4th. The family was fighting over who got to go for rides. []
