2 seems like the best deal with the tires

also the green ones seem to rust out less

#2 by a mile. I wouldn't be surprised if it's already gone at that price if it's in decent shape.

2001 amber fire cherokee sport 4x4, 2 in lift, 30x9.50 generals, 174 ion wheels, pretty much stock.

Ok I am leaning towards #2. I just talked to guy. The good- mileage condition, new brakes all round, new universal joints. The only bad is check engine light is on, he claims he just replaced 02 sensor. Is it worth the gamble with that light on, I have first dibs at it tonight. Tires are 50% left.

I know to look for rust, try the 4x4, cut the wheels and drive in circles, check for leaks, check under the hood

don't use 4x4 on dry pavement, be sure you are in the grass or a field.

If you run out of exhaust fluid, the muffler bearing goes.

Haha just like turn signal fluid anyhow, when I questioned the owner on the check engine light he blew me off and had no answer. Then called me tonight to tell me jeep was sold. The search continues

If it was diesel it may use exhaust fluid

To bad about the jeep, the light could have been simple. looked like a good one.
