dang that is a nice jeep, and even though the price is high for the miles it is hard to price adjust a older vehicle that is clean

Both my ZJs look exactly like that that. Or did stock.

But my 95 has the pillowtop seats and sunroof.

anything with that low of mileage sets off alarm bells in my mind. and sitting in a garage(on the original tires most likely) for 14 years? no thanks at anything over 2k.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

I like his comment about "you will not find a better/cleaner 4wd at this price"

Whatever this dudes been smoking on must be some strong stuff

I'd argue the price as much as I could but I have bought old stored cars before , some had issues , most did not . I do $7000 . That's probably the cleanest ZJ on the planet , lol . I wouldn't trust those tires though . Other than that , even if it had a few issues , good luck finding another in that shape , with those k . One can only hope it has been started a few times a year . That's my opinion . Lots of cars are stored and not used . I have a friend with a 76 455 trans am 4 speed that has less K . He wouldn't sell it for 40k

Wouldn't all the seals and gaskets dry up from sitting?...
I heard many different people say a vehicle like that is a pretty much a ticking time bomb...it will start leaking as soon as someone spits on the sidewalk and the seals should be all ready disintegrate along with any rubber bushings and hoses?
