I don't about about Florida, but in NJ where I'm from $450 for a jeep, even with 300,000 miles seems like a good deal. Even if it dies after a month, for that price who cares?

price out what a rental vehicle would be per day. if you think the xj can live longer than that, you'll break even and still be able to part it out.

Let's face it, it's an 89 with 300k on it... you know your gonna be dumping money into it!!! But then... It's a Jeep Thing. I say go for it, for $450 bucks like FitchVA said.. "you still will be able part it out" just my $0.02

Buy it, but..... for $450 you could start......
Start saving your pennies and when it dies you'll have saved enough to drop and brand new engine in and then it'll live forever....

A 1989 Jeep Cherokee wouldn't have a V6. It would have the 4.0L I6 242 Cubic inch. The last year for the 2.8L V6 was 1986. Then in 1987 the 4.0L I6 came out.

Easy to be a truck. Hard to be a Jeep.

If you decide against buying it, let me know where it is. I am in St. Augustine. For 450$ I could strip it down and build it from ground up for a DD, and then rebuild my 87 to a trail rig...

What! I woulda' bought it for that. Machias is a bit of a drive, though, so perhaps not. Oh, and this thread is 6 years old.
