Question Jeep VIRGIN

I'm getting ready to join up with all you Jeep enthusiants and buy a 2000 TJ Sport to see for myself what all the hype is all about. I know, I,m starting low or old, but....It's a one owner clean Carfax and 103,000 miles, 4.0 manual trans, engine is spotless, and new tires, and Warn wench. My concern is there is no spare tire on the back. Never owned a vehicle without one. Is this a deal breaker or bargaining item? Can't imagine driving anything without a spare. I know that I need to check for rust. The dealer undercoats/or paints all the bottom of "all" his vehicles! Vehicle from upstate SC. Help! Good ride to start with? 10K

Beware the 2000 4.0 had a bad head design that tended to get a hairline crack and leak coolant into oil which is real bad for an engine as coolant contaminated oil does not lubricate well

Google tupy head to see what Jeep had to do to correct the bad head design
