I would say the Jeep is above average overall.

$14.5k. The mileage kills it. It fits have new wheels and tires, paid $2k for. The reason he's selling is that his commute went from 8 miles/one way/per day to 30 and well you know it isn't a high mileage rig.

That still seems high to me.... just too many miles for my liking. Depending on what lift it has it might not ride very well
Agree, could have a crap lift and drive like a pos. it has been listed for 24 days for a reason. 140k on a lifted Jeep could be very hard miles.

with that many miles, it has to be a 3.8. and being a 3.8 it is probably on the 2nd motor or getting close.

I would spend a couple thousand more and get one with half as many miles.

I'm thinking about going no higher than $15.5.
Take it for a test drive. If it rides nice and seems to run good I'd go for $15,000. You'll likely need to rebuild the engine in the next couple of years and of course the transmission. Still could be a nice rig tho if you plan on keeping it for several years.

Might be a candidate for a V8 swap....:)

This is good advice!

140k miles for $16k are you serious ? Run run away as fast as you can. Go get a brand new stripped 2 door for $24k and take the money that you would have kept spending to keep that wore out one running and build the new one the way you want it.

I wouldn't pay $12,000 for that Jeep. Way too many miles. And even many more than showing if he didn't recalibrate the speedo after lift. Could be closer to 200,000. Many many more choices out there.

Didn't know that about recalibration after a lift. One hell of a educational forum.
