1990 Jeep Wrangler for my 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 truck

Im being offered a 1990 jeep wrangler, 125, 000 miles, 4 cyl, 5 speed, soft top, good tires....but it needs and ignition and key. Its about 200 miles from my home. Is it worth trading my 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 single cab pickup, 118, 000 miles. Owner says jeep is in great condition other than iginition switch. Jeep appears to be well taken care of in pics. Ive been diagnosed with a terminal illness and owning a jeep is on my bucket list. So im kinda biased toward the jeep. What do you fellow jeepers think?

Jeep is worth about $2-3500 depending on condition and since it needs and ignition it probably doesn't run. Since the ignition is easily changed out and the owner didn't fix it it doesn't say much about the jeep....

If you do a straight up trade you would be getting ripped off big time. I would think your truck is worth about twice what the jeep is. I would recommend looking for a tj which is 97+

2001 amber fire cherokee sport 4x4, 2 in lift, 30x9.50 generals, 174 ion wheels, pretty much stock.

Agreed with robt. A TJ in similar condition would be a fair trade.

I think even the estimate of $2000 is likely high for a 24 year old 4 cylinder YJ. Broken ignition and no key is huge red flag too. Stolen?? Maybe trying to dump it for a clear vehicle? Be careful.
