Need help making decision

I'm looking at a 1990 YJ 2.5 under 90,000 miles. It has a 3.5" lift 33" tires. They want $5,000 obo. Thing is it's an hr and a half to two hours away. Hard to go take a look at it besides pictures, which make it look pretty nice. What do you all think? Thanks ahead of time! can't post pictures, no links..

Look for rust. $5k would be top of the line for a 4 cylinder YJ IMO and I would have a hard time paying that. You can usually find a 6 for around that price range if you are patient.

Thanks for the quick reply! Maybe I will ask for some picture of the underneath since they did not supply them. Also, was thinking about offering 3,000 and see if they would take it. I would most definitely prefer a 6 cylinder though. I find they are rare to come by in CT. I don't want to pay over 5,000 as it is going to be a second vehicle for fun. My Mini will always be my gas saving everyday vehicle . But every time I find one they are outrageously priced =\. Guess I will keep an eye opened! Thanks again!

The 33" tires would tax a 2.5 engine. It would really be a dog. As Adam013085 said, rust would be the problem. This is especially true in the Northeast. Best to walk away.
