Would you do this?(Not Tech JF)

Not tech,I know.I can't take it much longer without a Jeep.I hate that I sold both my TJ's,but I have this offer and need advise tonight (please JF don't move this for a couple hours).06 Impact orange sport,d44 rear,6 speed,39,000 miles,never offroad,RC 4" lift with 16" black Motto steel black wheels,I talked the guy into replacing the tires with brand new 35x12.50 Nitto Mud Grapplers and $12,800 to sell it this weekend.Opinions needed? Good or bad.Keep in mind where I live in the city where UVA is and stuff sells for much higher for college rich kids.ANY opinions wanted.

"Never Offroad" I find that hard to believe when people say that while selling their stock Jeeps, and this one is hooked up, and that price is very low to the ones around my are. I would look at everything and take it for a good test drive and try all gears and 4hi and lo. There is a catch somewhere.

Out here in the southwest that would be an excellent deal, I believe?Of course mileage is high for the year but not for what your getting for the $12,800.Buy it and keep this one for awhile!

If my memory serves me, as I've glanced over your TJ buying threads (BTW, you change Jeeps more than most people change their socks ), I thought you were looking for a TJ that is already built; something that you wouldn't have to sink more $$$ into, correct?

Does this Jeep have the gears for 35s or 33s for that matter? That $1K there What about lockers or a winch? Another $1K there. I think this '06 needs a lot more attention to be a really capable rig. You'd be better off, imho, to buy a Rubicon and patiently shop craigslist for tires/wheels, and a lift.

Doesn't sound like a bad deal. Why would you care if it was ever off road or not? If they managed to keep the body straight and not destroy the engine or tranny, I'd think you'd be ok. If it's been off road, it can be pretty obvious when you look underneath and find bits of log stuck in things and rock scraps on the bottoms of the diffs. Seems like a reasonably good starting point.

A built used and abused Jeep is worth nothing.Finding a decent lifted Jeep that was made for the Mall is a plus.Nitto Mud Grappler tires as everyone knows are NOT CHEAP.If you keep up with my stuff,I sold a 98' for $10,000.How many peeps get $10,000 for a 98' with 98,000 miles?My stuff if top notch.Don't piss me off or i might just kick your a$$ on Bully beatdown on MTV.

So, you're looking for a DD or a trail machine? I thought you were looking for a trail machine...oops. I don't know what bully beatdown on MTV is.

This is a quote from one of your threads:
"My goal is to run large tires with no worries of breaking stuff and stop buying,sinking money into and selling stuff."

In that case, you'd have to put money into a Rubicon to keep it from breaking stuff on 35" tires if you wheel hard.

My ride(the ex girlfriend)screwed up my yellow Rubi deal.I found an 06' Rubi for $14,500 that needs tires but I don't have the extra cash.
