my buddy is wanting an XJ

my buddy is turning 16 soon and he wants an XJ. he's not real sharp with cars but he wants to learn, so im helping him out.

we looked at a few today, and i think we found the one he wants to buy.
its a 91 laredo 4 door, 4x4 with the 4.0 HO. its got 178xxx miles on it. body looks good, no rust, interior looks perfect as well. only problems i could find were the tires are bald (and mismatched, its got 2 michelins and 2 uniroyals) and it leaks some oil. im thinking the oil leak is the oil pressure sender though since the gauge is broken (stuck at 40psi).

we didnt actually meet the seller, we called him and he was out of town, but he said the jeep was in front of his house if we wanted to go take a look at it, so we did. he has it listed for 2600 (crazy, i know), and on the phone he said the lowest he would probably go was 2300. still crazy. my buddy really wants this jeep. he has 2100 cash. i told him to offer the guy 1700, and i wouldnt go higher than that. sound about right?
