How hard to finish?

http://newyork.craigslist.org/lgi/cto/4989022528.html

How hard would it be to finish this project? It seems to be a good price for all of the parts in it. I have pics of it but can't figure out how to post them

I have learned, over the years, not to try to finish some else's project. Even if it has a ton of great parts and seems like a good deal. Too many times you end up with a bunch of hidden problems, or a whole rig that was done poorly.

With that said, if everything is really done, and all it needs is wiring and the interior installed, then thats not a whole lot. Wiring can be a hell of a job though, and if you don't know what you are doing, then it can be hopeless at times. Also, the seller claims that it runs perfectly once its wired, but there is no real way to prove that, and if you get it wired up and it runs like crap or doesn't run at all, there is not much you can do. You are basically buying a ton of parts with the hopes that you can get it running without much more invested.

It's worth it for the parts alone, nevermind the fact that it's a Comanche.

Its a 2 door Cherokee. MJ beds arent part of the unibody and unless thats a realllly big tire the entire thing is way too short. Its a very, very well done chop.

I noticed the tail lights. I thought the project Jeep was going to have '97+ lights and header panel?

And rockers that run past the cab, an XJ rear bumper, and the gas door is in front of the rear wheel on MJs,
