Found a 94' Jeep Cherokee For Sale BUT

I found a 94' Jeep Cherokee for sale. It has 128k on it, but it needs work. I haven't checked underneath yet for rust, but when I say it, it needed a few things:

-New windshield
-New Windshield Seal (water is actually leaking inside the Jeep)
-New Headlight (No issue)
-New tires
-New Heater/A/c switch
-New Carpet since the original one is trashed
-Headliner is falling down
-Paint is faded
-New Fog lights
-New Shocks (Which is normal)
-Both Front leather seats are ripped

Problem is I can't find Tan leather seats.

I'm probably missing somethings, but it seams pretty good other than that. Just wondering if it seems like a good deal?

Just want to see if it's worth it.

What model is it as in SE Sport or Country? What's the guy want for it? What upgrades does it have if any? What are the positive things about it? Pics

No pics. Positive things is that the transfer case has been replaced and has a 5 year warranty. It runs and drives smooth.

He want's $1200 and it's the Country Model. I want it, but finding the Country leather seats are hard to find. At least for me that is.

I'm looking into lifting it anyway, but I want it nice and clean. I'm OCD about it. Im not worried about the paint anyway.

Windshield leaking you say? Check those floor boards really well for rust/rot. And $1200 with that laundry list of issues? I'd rather spend twice that and not have to deal with the issues...

Yeah that's what I'm saying too. I'm going to go back and check it once more. If not I'll find another one that's probably cleaner. I'd rather have the Cherokee seats unless I can find a nice seat of Grand Cherokee seats too.I don't want it looking ghetto. haha

Nope. Sounds like something the owner should pay you to take away. Depending on just how VA is about making cars rust, the floors are probably rusting out of it, and if it's a Country, I wouldn't be surprised to find the doors rusting away behind that plastic washboard cladding crap in addition to whatever other rust may have piled-up on this thing and been ignored by the owner. I just see a bunch of things the owner couldn't be bothered to take care of but still wants $1200 for. Pass.

P.S. For whatever the info is worth to you, not all Countries had leather seats. Mine has tan cloth/vinyl.

Va can be bad for rust but Not terrible. Mine is in good shape but still needs front floorpans. But ive looked at some way worse than mine.
And with all those problems id say its no deal too.

If you can do it yourself then the labor is cheap. Here in Panama I paid $2500 for my 94 Cherokee Sport automatic with 170K miles and that was a great price, as mostly they run about $5000 and up. Plus it had all the problems you described. The thing is mechanics here get less then $5 per hour and parts generally are less then in the States. I got everything fixed and still came in at less then $3300 (my total investment) including a complete automatic transmission re-build and new AC condensor unit and charged, 4 new shocks, and 2 new front tires, and the rest. By the way, to change and mount a tire costs $1.50, a replacement blower fan for the AC/heat/defrost was $35 installed, to give you an idea. Oh yeah, and a loaf of home-made banana bread for the mechanic. Ah, paradise.
