SOON to be owner

Hi guys, I literally am about to buy my first Jeep and maybe I can get your expert opinions between the 2 options I'm looking at....
Option 1 is an '89 Sahara so it's a 6 cylinder and stick shift (looks lifted). All the options I prefer plus it's supposed to be a rebuilt engine with low miles. I can tell by the pictures that this will not be very clean inside or out. But after agreeing to meet up, since its a far drive for both of us, he said the bottom line cash he'll take is $2300. which is great with me! and I'll have extra cash to fix up the cosmetics.
Option 2 is basically anything a little newer, cleaner, pricier. One in particular I like is a '95 and 4 cylinder automatic. It looks very clean and it's already got performance shocks with a 4" lift. This is $5250 and anything similar will be even more I imagine.
Any opinions that might help me decide???
Thanks for the extra help on welcoming me in!

This is what I'd do, but then I like a good challenge.
