Definitely clean. An Orvis just sold by me for $5300 with 60,000 miles. It still had the fog lights and factory floor mats... Maybe if they'd applied $200 worth of tire shine it would have doubled in value...

It does look good, but my 5.9 looked like that with 120k miles and was $5500.. No scratches, no rust, new paint Job.. interior was spotless.. no scratchs on the leather... ect.
Remember looks can alterd to raise the value of anything... The engine bay only looks like that because of a special cleaner that puts a thin film over everything and makes it nice and black and shiny.. I've seen cars with 200k miles with spotless engines like that... Shiny tires... armor all anyone ? lol
Granted with 43k miles that is very very low mileage so i doubt it has any issues mechanicly.. Still wouldnt pay $12k for it.. $6k maybe... But then i dont like the pre 96 ZJ's they are too old looking interior wise.
2013 6.2 V8 Camaro SS 9k miles
1998 5.9 V8 ZJ 180k miles
1998 4.0 I6 Laredo ZJ 227k miles
I'd call anybody crazy if they paid that much for it. Maybe a dealership would pay for it to put an Evolution of Grand Cherokee on the showroom floor (which would be pretty cool), or something Regardless, can't deny that is one clean ZJ.

You can tell they used some kind of cleaner on the engine bay. It looks greasy rather then clean. And they didn't mention the E-brake doesn't work, rear wiper motor is siezed, viscous coupler is shot, passenger axle clunks, front differential groans and the VIC beeps about the coolant sensor going bad.
