Found a YJ on CL and going to look at it tomorrow. It's a stock 4cyl, and the owner is an older guy. 160k miles no issues and a newer soft top (so he says). Asking $2k. What things should I look for when I look it over?

To be honest, I was looking for a built up XJ, but found this one during my search, and while it is completely stock, the price is right.

Definitely look for frame rust and for rust around the windshield. Floorboards are another area to look out for. I just pick up a 95 YJ for 2k. Mine has 152k miles, and it's completly stock other than the 31 inch tires.

Look @ the oil pan, cross-member, u-bolt thread ends, and gas tank skid plate if you want to see if it has ever been seriously off-roaded. check the frame end(S) where the spring shackles attach for rust stress. Check where the steering box attaches to the frame stress, missing / stripped bolts. Floor pans and where the seatbelts attach to the tub (lower by where roll-bar attaches to the tub) for rust...
