Looking to purchase a YJ, price checking & questions
Hey guys, totally new to the forum and Jeeps in general. I currently drive a '97 5.4L Ford Expedition, which I'm looking to sell/trade for a YJ. I've found a few in the area on craigslist, but haven't taken a look at anything yet. There's one in particular that's caught my eye, a '94 Sahara in green/tap hard top w/ 149k miles. Everything looks to be stock from his description & pictures. Looking at KBB.com, private party price looks to be about $4300 in excellent condition. I've had issues with KBB in the past under/over-estimating vehicle values. What do the YJ's usually sell for, stock, no mods and in good condition? I wouldn't want to piss anyone off sending an offer only to be really low balling, neither would I want to over pay for one. Also, anything I should look out for? I'm in Texas, and rust is rarely an issue down here, but are there any problematic areas I should keep an eye out for mechanical wise? This wouldn't be a daily driver, as I commute to work, but on certain days when I don't, I'd be driving 40+ miles, and I'd certainly use it on the weekends for trips and such. Thanks for any help, and I hope to be a part of this forum community soon.
