good deal???

I have found a 97 cherokee 2x4 4.0 auto. Has an exhaust leak, needs a new front fender, and a new rear glass. 950 bucks. It has 98,000 miles. What do you guys think?? I dont know much about these.

It's only 2wd. Do you plan on wheeling it at all? Doing a 4wd conversion isn't worth it. Check the engine over, look for leaks and listen to the engine running.

If the rest in in good shape, hell yes. Fix it and re sell for a profit.

Make SURE the unibody isnt tweeked and that it drives well if it has been in a wreck.
