I'm new to Jeeps and looking at this 93 YJ what do y'all think

I have posted one question and have been looking around the site to try and answer some of my question but now here is the important one. What do y'all think of this Jeep. I'm looking at purchasing it from my brother in law. It says that it has 100,000 but he never changed out the speedometer gear so the MPH and Odometer are off. Please tell me what ya'll think, it has the original paint on it and it is an automatic with the 4.0.

Here are a few more pictures. I have some others but the site is telling me they are too large so I have to figure out how to shrink the size before I can post them.

i have never seen a bench seat in the front of a wrangler. that's different.

your not in the rust belt like me so the frame shouldn't be an issue, however axle seals may be. look at the pinions and diff covers for leaks.

it looks extremely clean, i wish vehicles looked like that up here after 20 years

Great looking YJ!!! Bench seat front is rare and the rest looks stock. She will make a great ride or project Jeep.

Nice jeep! My 93 was originally a Texas jeep. No rust on the frame,body whatsoever. It was also ziebarted right after it left the factory. I paid $4k for mine, it's a hardtop,4cyl, and has 155k on the odometer. For $3000 you get a pile of rust around St. Louis.

Well it is in Missouri right now and it spent 8 or so years in Florida. It has some rust around the front fender flares but nothing to bad. I pictures of that but I can't get it to let me attach them. I might try a screen shot and see if that works.

Floor pans and frame rust are the killers. If they are good and it is mechanically sound, I would buy it. Save enough back to replace that bench seat with some Smittybuilts etc.!
