I have a 96 and the price sounds decent. Sounds like it has had some money put into it and sounds like a decent daily driver. I would have a buyers check done on it. Good Luck.

I assume like a carfax, to check the history of the vehicle.

ultimately that is up to you to decide. To some people that dosent phase them and to others they would steer clear.

The mileage is up there for the running gear. But you can replace just about every piece of it. How new is the motor? What year was the donor Jeep or was it rebuilt? If the motor is rebuilt from a reputable rebuiler I'd cafefully consider it.
