This seem like an ok deal for a 2nd YJ?

I saw this http://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/cto/3820172019.html but not sure if it's a decent deal or not. It's by far one of the cheapest YJ's I've ran across around here, everyone thinks they are gold I guess. Can probably get the one in the ad for cheaper.

Been looking for a 2nd YJ for a couple months now that is reasonable in price. The plan is to move all the running gear from my 93' YJ to another YJ. I'm swapping the motor, trans, TC, frontend, 8.8, etc in my 93 and replace them with LS3, 4L60E, Atlas, D60's etc. and all my current 93 stuff is in great shape so makes since to find another jeep rather than peice part all my junk out for pennies.

as you plan on swapping newer parts in it will work for you. be sure to use the fact that it won't pass smog with the weber to get the price lower, I'd try for around 2K if the body and frame are solid.

Do everything with a positive attitude, it won't always work but you'll piss enough people off to make it worthwhile.

the voices aren't real but they sure have good ideas.

Thanks for the input and good point about using the smog issue with the weber. If it's always been a CA jeep it probably is rust free which is a must for me. 2K sounds about right for what I was seeing in the pics.

New carb, new trans and >>>? That is way too much money for a project vehicle. It should be around $1800. Keep looking!

Could not afford to hose it down before snapping some pics? Wonder what else the previous owner was to lazy to do? I would keep looking. As mentioned, to high of a price unless you can get them down.

Thanks guys, I'll keep looking then. If I could get him down to under 2K then maybe. All I really want is a decent tub and frame, no rust no damage. I'll be replacing everything else.
