looking at buying first xj

Looking at a 1999 with 83,xxx miles on it. It is a classic with power everything. It also has the select-trac II i believe that is the one. With 4 hi full time and part time, 4 lo and 2 hi. I am looking to get it for $6000. Has the usual amount of scratches and dings, very minimal rust. Being in the midwest we have alot of rust here. Is there anything I should be aware of. How does the price sound?

Pretty low miles, but for a 99, theres better deals.

yeah thats a little high. i would think something like 4k is a better price, even for that one.
Completely stock, and keeping it that way...
