Looking at a 92 YJ

Hello, folks! I've been looking into getting my first Jeep for a little while and will be checking out a 92 I found on craigslist tomorrow. I figured I'd throw it out here to see if anyone has some last minute insight to help me make a decision. The ad says it's a 92 4.0 with 158k and no rust (we'll see about that) and asking for $3850. Here's the link-

Despite the common mislabeling of "v6" it looks pretty straight, but of course that's tbd. I know to look for rust along the frame, floor pans, rocker panels, firewall, etc. The one thing that's throwing me off is that it apparently has the sport style roll bar, but a 92 should have the family bar right? I know they're easily swapped, but that just tells me it's either not a 92 or someone's been swapping parts around.

With that in mind, would anyone be able to enlighten me to any other telltale signs of caution?

I appreciate your help

It might just be a 91 model. YJ's started having the 4.0 in 91 and the family style roll cage in 92. The price seems reasonable. Definitely check thoroughly for rust and the lower portion of the tub that appears to be painted black. Maybe hiding some rust, maybe not.
