Hey, I live here in Dallas where that jeep is and know wranglers or a bit on the high side here in Dallas. With that said, that jeep is way over priced by 1000s of dollars.
For reference . I bought mine about 6 months ago after looking a long time on Craig's list and local dealership . I found one at used dealership . A 1998 with 148k miles, auto, nice, AC, soft top for 6800 plus tax and lic. I bought it and still feel it was a bit high but could not find a better deal.
usually dealer and good deal don't go in the same sentence.... Seems way over priced. I would think most of the jeeps in TX would be rust free unless you lived on the gulf.
I can't believe how much yj prices have stayed high/gone up. Over 10 years ago I bought a mint 87 wrangler, 4.2 with working ac, 1 owner from cali, no rust anywhere, 40k, two sets of doors, three tops, new tires, showroom condition, etc for $6500.
If you want a jeep with a carb go with a cj, if you want fuel injection I'd go with a 91+ with the 4.0.
2001 amber fire cherokee sport 4x4, 2 in lift, 30x9.50 generals, 174 ion wheels, pretty much stock.
