Well if you buy, I want to just say welcome to the Sandy club, no you can't take the name because my '89 Sahara is named Sandy. I got mine with a redone interior and 95k on the clock for $6500 and mines in good condition, the PO also wanted $7200, but cash in hand goes a long way. The Jeep your looking at, if it doesn't have major rust and looks like a Texas jeep (like mine, sorry I love to brag about mine) should be anywhere from the $7500-$9000 range. For a YJ, that is a lot! Most YJ's around the U.S. go for about $4000. One with 56k is rare as well.

He said that it had the Mopar FI kit installed on it.

This is a Craigslist scam...seen a lot of them. Almost anytime you get an email address that is hotmail, yahoo, or gmail and the deal seems too good to be true, it is too good to be true.
