Found awesome XJ, need help tho...

Ok, so I have always been a jeep fan, used to have nice 2001 xj, but engine seized ....anyways, I found a 95 jeep, lifted 12'' on 36x15.50 MT, has the ever famous 4.0 and 5 speed. it has 180k on it, things done
over axle steering conversion, dual stabilizers
bilstein 5150 coil over shocks
aftermarket drive shafts
steel braided lines
rustys long arm lift
custom front light bar

the asking price is 6000, im sure I could maybe talk down, but is this something I should get, Id need it to last the next 4 years or so. What things should I look for to make sure it hasnt been beaten on, or abused? any help Id really appreciate it

With that list of parts, you have to assume it has been used hard. Another nice stock Jeep is probably a better bet.

According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, AR-15 sporting rifles account for nearly 20% of all U.S. firearms sales.

6k is a ton of money for a 95 with 180k on it I don't care what kind of parts are on it.

If you need something to last a few years look for something stock and do some light mods to it
2001 amber fire cherokee sport 4x4, 2 in lift, 30x9.50 generals, 174 ion wheels, pretty much stock.
