Looking at a Jeep, have questions.

The details:

For sale 2001 Jeep Wrangler tj with hard top and hard doors. It has 118000 miles and is a 4.0 six cylinder and five speed. It has upgraded axles (D44 rear, D30 front). Detroit lockers/chromoly axles. 5.13 gears. Has a 4 inch lift with aftermarket wheels and 35 inch boggers.

Vehicle is nice, no rust. Has dents and dings (used to drive around a farm I was told). It's not a SHOW queen, not perfectly clean etc.

The Bad: Has the 'death wobble'. AC doesn't work. Will need new tires.

What's this Jeep worth? I have him down to 6k, and he will throw in the stock axles. Is that decent? I can't seem to find a decent 6 cylinder Jeep under 10k! The prices are quite surprising.

Thanks guys and gals!

I personally wouldn't touch it. Combine the "death wobble" with a 4" lift and 35" tires and indicators point to a sloppy/cheap/amateurish lift job. Go back to square one and look for a '01 TJ that is completely unmodified. There are tons of them out there. Make sure it is completely rust free.
If you buy this one I'll bet you are going to spend a bunch just replacing the "upgrades" even before you can get it safely out on the road.

You don't want to inherit his problems and issues. Look for a stock TJ as suggested and build from there. You will thank everyone who suggests this later.
