It's nice. I personally don't like the AC vents where they are, I feel like it would only hit my knees, so I tried avoiding those when I bought mine. I have a 97 TJ, I bought it in June, so not that long ago. As to if they "hold up" I mean, jeeps keep their value. I don't think you can buy any other make out there as old as a 97 for 6300 (that's how much I got mine for). Just make sure it has no off-road damage, it has some tires on it, and has the tanks back there so I can assume it was used for that, looks pretty clean though. I say go for it!

Weber carb on a '90 model is not exactly sought after. Price is high. Other than that, you need to do some reading here on this forum before you do some buying. Go to:

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f165/...t-here-523324/

Knowledgeable people rarely get screwed. Know what to look for. Once you decide on a model learn all you can about it. THEN get on Craigslist if you must.

That's a clean YJ but I think the price is pretty high. If you're looking for a YJ you can find one way cheaper than that.

Its just personal, but I wouldn't like to buy some other guys modifications, no matter how well done. Too many questions unanswered.
