About to buy a 98 XJ

Looked at a 98 Cherokee base model with the up country package for $1300 down from $1700. She's got 232,000 miles on it, but the previous owner put in a newer tranny, he had no idea when or how many miles it had. The guy's an at home mechanic who just put in an E fan, new radiator, cap, spark plugs, all new wiring. No exhaust leaks or anything, or its gonna need brakes and tires within the next three months I'd say, maybe some other new front end work cause the alignment is off a little as well. Just wondering if you guys think it's a good buy.

No its not you would give me the location on this jeep so I can go buy it and save anyone else the troubles and high cost of modifying it. If the body is in good shape and she runs well it seems like a good deal for an up country.
ah,beer the cause of and cure to all of lifes problems ...Homer J Simpson... I am the guy in the red jeep!
