Xj what do u guys think? good deal?

I like to buy cherokees for cheap and part them out. I usually make out pretty good. Heres one on craigslist (http://anchorage.craigslist.org/car/766040720.html) asking $700 but he said he will take $500. I have to go pick it up 50 miles away.

Anyway it was flipped on its side and slid down a hill into a ditch, so the whole passenger front side is bad. He says he had a battery in it and it was still running and driving except for the radiator that kept leaking.

So, my guess is I could sell the engine, trans, transfer case, driveshafts maybe, back hatch, some other body parts, and some interior parts.

Whats your guy's opinions on this?

Do that and then sell the rest for scrap.

I've made some pretty good money parting out Caprice police cars. I've always made at least double my money if not more.
