Hi all, looking for purchasing advice, thanks!

I am looking for an inexpensive winter vehicle to be driven to and from work when the weather is bad here in Kansas. Found this on Autotrader in my town. Would anyone be willing to check out this link and let me know their thoughts on price, condition, reliability, etc. ? What would be a fair cash offer to this seller?
Thanks in advance!

A fair cash offer would be based on what Kelly Blue Book and/or Edmunds say the value should be in your area. Then deduct for rust. Deduct a LOT for rust. This unit as rocker panel damage and what sounds like floorboard rot. No telling how damaged the frame could be.
There are a lot of these vehicles out there. Don't run and buy the first one you see.

Well, it looks good, but most of them do. The Jerry Cans and the spare tire carrier add no value. The top shown in the pictures is a mess, however the owner states that it comes with a full soft top, so that might be OK. The fact that it is lifted is a minus because you don't know the expertise of the person who did the lift, nor the quality of product that went into the lift. But the MAIN thing is the rust. There is no question there will be rust in a Kansas jeep, just how bad it will be. You cannot over-do checking for rust and if there is damage to the frame, walk away.
