Did I do good?

I'm going to go get a 95 yj next week and I want to know if I got a steal or what.

It's got 6 inches of lift. Spring over if I'm correct. It has a different rear end but I don't know what from. Geared 4:88. The engine is 2.5 with 95k on body, and 5k on engine (don't know why he rebuilt it so early). Now get this.....37 inch super swampers...and with very good tread. Interior is completely rhino lined and he is including half doors. It has a hard top already. I am paying 4k for it, which is 1k less than what he was asking.

Did I get a good deal? How much do you think it's worth with the given information?

Sorry the site says my pictures are too big to upload

Edit your photo size by opening them with paint, reduce size by 20% increments until they fit.

Steering needs to be fixed.

the steering was pretty loose when I test drove it, but not uncontrollable. So far the only things I know need to be fixed are: stearing, parking break, gas gauge (good luck from what Ive heard), and the hood will need a fresh black paint job(previous looks like a spray can job)

Actually its the wrong steering for the type of lift. When you go SOA you'll need an over the knuckle or high steer kit to keep the angles in check because in its current state, the drag link angle is dangerous.

Any recommendations for wtb as far as what steering your talking about?

There's this one

http://www.teraflex.biz/high-steer-system.html

And this one
http://www.rocky-road.com/yj-high-steer.html

And I'm sure another one but my mind is drawing a blank. You'll want the drag link above the springs to the top of the knuckle or even everything up there too.

I wouldn't pay 4k for someones project that probably wasn't done correctly. If the steering was pointed out from 1 picture I would bet the rest has been half assed too and not to mention probably beat up pretty bad. O and a 4 cyl on 37s is a dog!

I'm not a huge rock climber, I just like driving in the mountains and not having to worry about snow, so the 4cyl doesn't really bother me. And the way I see it, regardless whether the suspension was done perfect or not, the suspension alone is worth almost 2k. I'm not arguing but I just wanted to clarify that I'm not a perfectionist when it comes to Jeeps on cl, I like to do a little work to them myself lol

That suspension wasn't ever worth $800. I don't mean to burst your bubble over and over again but I'm familiar with the Yj platform.
