I think I might want to get the Red 1994 Laredo 4x4 V8..

Anyone have any thoughts on why the a/c might not work? Probably just needs a recharge?

How much would a nice used set of the OEM 1996+ 5-spoke style wheels cost?

Does anyone want a grey leather interior? I don't like it and would rather have cloth, or a smooth leather..

He wants about 5800-6000 for it.
83500 miles. V8. 4x4 Laredo. Leather, CD, VIC(is that the computer?),

It needs a new windshield (eventually)
A/C doesnt work (might just need a recharge)
Probably front rotors soon

Where can I take it for an inspection, to make sure Im not getting into a money pit?
I would assume the dealer, but do any other places work on jeeps, or would know about them? Or should I just look for a regular domestic auto shop around here.

DO NOT!! buy the car until you at least know what is wrong with the a/c. (that is unless you have at least 1,500 dollars sitting around for a possible fix) i spent that much getting the evaporator replaced in mine and it is newer and has less miles than that one. i mean if you don't mind not having the a/c i guess it's not a huge problem but i'd still like to find out whats broken in it before i buy.

to get it checked out just find a gas station that runs a decent shop and just get them to give it the once over. the a/c might be a little tricky though if it's not just a simple recharge. good luck to ya.
