I am looking at buying a 1989 Jeep Wrangler in fair condition with a 4.2 and manual transmission, Can someone tell me a rough estimate of what it is worth? Kelly blue book only goes back to like 1991. Thanks.
The guy is asking 1500 for it, he did say it needs a diode or something, he said without it the jeep will run a little rough at highway speeds. Anyone know what hes talking about? I know nothing about carb vehicles.
a 4.2 barely has ANY compter crap.... let alone any diodes....
sounds like it needs a new carb... which will be common for a 4.2 if it has the carter.. chekc the frame area around the shackles, check the body along the bottom of the door, lift the carpet if it has any, the floors may be rotted out.......
Started with some rust repairs ended in a SOA...

Like others have said. Check the frame for rust. Judging by the the pics it looks like it could be a good deal (assuming the frame is solid.) Considering it has a hard top and full doors you could part it out and get most of your money back. In my area the full doors would fetch $500 and the hard top would also fetch $500.
