Ok so I'm still on the hunt looking for my first jeep. It's been about a month and every jeep I see is either too rusted or out of my budget. My friend is selling his jeep and is willing to go down to $8500. Is it worth it? Here is the link to check out. Thanks in advance!

He replaced the entire frame? Before I read that, the picture of the side shows the frame obviously re-painted, but looked to have some flaking underneath, as if rust was painted over?

If the frame was replaced with a new one, I'd say it's worth it because of the low miles and that trouble area (frame) has been addressed.

If that frame is painted over rust, run...arggggh. How much would it cost to "replace the frame" on a Wrangler anyway?? Just curious.
