high mileage yj

Looking for opinions about purchasing a used 94 wrangler sahara. It was used as a tow behind vehicle for a motorhome. It was only driven around 30k miles but it was towed in neutral for almost 300k. Wondering how much wear and tear would be on the vehicle.
thanks,

I wouldn't sweat it...worst case would be wheel bearings and possibly a ring and pinion

The motor will surely be fine, but check over suspension and steering parts as well. Along with wheel bearings and ring and pinion I'd check ball joints and tie rod ends. Being towed with all 4 on the ground could have stressed the front end without someone turning the wheels.

You should really post pics of the speedo at 300k+. That'd be a nice pic.
