First time Jeep buying, going to trade

I've always wanted a Jeep but finally put my truck on craigslist to trade I came up with two people interested, one a 97 4cyl 5 speed. the other a modded 92 4 cyl 5 speed. with 33s winch 4.88s but just concerned about a 4cyl with all that since around here it's all highway driving

Obviously I'm more interested in the 97 TJ, but the problem is it has a rebuilt title and what looks to be a 4" lift with tires that are too small. but here's some pics of the TJ and see what you guys think. I haven't seen it in person yet just these pictures so what should I look out for
Thanks! hope to be in a jeep soon

Also I'd be trading a 95 Tahoe 4x4 with 6" rough country lift 35" terra grapplers and a new 350 that's a daily driver and needs nothing. I don't really know what kind of value it has just need someone that likes it.

is it really that bad? my other car is an 84 mercedes 300d with a whole 100hp. also how hard would it be to take off the lift, i've already searched and found most threads about removing a body lift so this isn't the case.

If it really has 4.88's in it. It will make it move better than stock. Making up for the lift and a bigger or should I say the correct tire size. A 4cyl. with 33's won't be that bad.

You're in FL...the 4cyl won't be a bad thing. As long as you realize you're not in a speed demon race car. If you were in a hilly area, I'd say steer away from it.
