Advice on buying RWD XJ

Been lurking on the forum for a while and appreciate all the great information. I've been looking at getting a used Cherokee as a hobby vehicle and some weekend camping trips. No real intentions of off-roading.
Is this vehicle fairly priced? It seems a tad high given the high mileage but was wondering if that's just dealer markup. Other Cherokees have been priced higher locally but generally have under 200k miles

Wow way too high! Especially for RWD cherokee. Should be half of that MAX. You can find cherokees with half the mileage in the $2500-3000 range plus 4x4.

Thanks for the response; really appreciate it. The research I had done on the various pricing sites indicated it was too high, but I've been seeing lots of high pricing here in middle GA (eg, asking 6k for a consensus 3k vehicle). I get that there are regional differences but this has seemed extreme.

Any thoughts on going in with an offer in the 40-50% range?

Ever since Cash For Clunkers and numerous articles in 4x4 magazines about how great a budget 4x4 the XJ Cherokee is, prices have increased.

The price is way too high for a 2wd Jeep, my buddy just bought a rust-free Texas 99 2wd XJ for $2100. ( It did need a few minor repairs. ) Prices do vary greatly based on overall condition and regional location.

Throw them an offer, see if they bite.

If you are looking for a 4x4 hold out and don't settle! I find it hard to consider a 2wd jeep a real jeep
