ill probably get flamed for saying that.
There is easily more than $4k worth of parts on that. Worst case is he parts it out.

IMO it's a double edged sword. If it's been done right and it's what you want then you're saving yourself a lot of trouble. If it's a recent hack job then there could be all kinds of unforeseen problems lurking. Really kinda hard to judge from pics. Is it pink?

No its like a hazard cone orange. Stupid color in my opinion. Owned ford my whole life other than one cherokee so I'm a bit nervous about buying something other than what I know. So I appreciate all the input and help you guys are giving!!

well boys went and looked at the jeep. From what I can see the lift it was installed right. A little roughed up on the bumpers. Kid said $3700 cash and its mine. Now my problem is I have an interview for a union equipment operator at a site about 1.5 hours from my house. Would definitely suck driving that up there everyday! God I hate making responsible decisions

ZJ's in stock form are super comfy and somewhat sporty with the V8. Mine loves the interstate. Lifted and whatnot like that one may be a whole different story though.

Honestly I love my stock V8 on the road but I would probly pass on a lifted one
Plenty others for sale out there I may even be selling mine soon
Don't buy jeeps with many suspension mods! Especially for a DD with a long commute
