92 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Edition..Buying HELP

I found a nice looking 92 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Edition. It has 180K miles...( he claims mostly towed behind an RV....but who knows for sure) The seller is asking $7200. I'm new to the jeep world, and looking to make it my next hobby. Here's the link to the sale. Is it a good deal? The price seems a little steep. Any info/comments would help. Thanks guys.

Did not read the article but it is priced a couple thousand too high. No Yj is worth that much. You can get a TJ for what he is asking.

I kind of thought so too. I appreciate the input. He has quite a few aftermarket parts on it. I'm sure that's where he's getting the extra couple thousand from.

Yeah, aftermarket parts dont add value to the jeep unless the buyer wants to pay extra for them. Its a clean looking jeep but I wouldnt pay much more than $5-5500 for it

Thanks. I'm looking for 3rd party opinions because all the Jeeps I seem to be looking at are down around W. Virginia. I'm planning on making a trip down this weekend and don't want to waste my time if they're not worth it.

It is a fine looking YJ. Love the paint job. Don't like the lift. If it is perfect mechanically, then in my opinion $6,000 would be a fair offer, but no higher.

Thanks for all the help. I ended up buying a 1980 CJ7. Its in great shape...almost looks parade/car show ready. There was a little rust visible on the frame (but not through it). So i'll be stripping it down, sandblasting, and painting it.
