Let's help him get/pay a better price. What are his price talk down points.
I have an 85 Laredo. That one is missing the graphics/decals. The front seats, not original. No side entry steps ($100.00 any day), no front driving lights, floor carpet missing (rear wheel well carpeting is there, I think). We did not see under the hood, or the condition of the wiring (if it has been hacked)
Mine has everything (original paint looks decent). I paid $4,000.00 but that was after a patient search and already having another good 83 Laredo.

Original faded paint, mild surface rust, and solid floorboards trump a pretty new paint job w/ welded replacement metal. If the body has been rusted out, the frame isn't far behind. Keep looking.

Guy sent me pictures of the underside and it looked pretty good. Now we all know in a CJ you have to poke around and hammer on stuff to make sure that rust isn't hiding, but from the pics he sent it looked like it was a pretty solid Jeep. Again, not a collectors item by any stretch, but a good solid Jeep with a lot of options on it.

I'll stand by my assesment of $6-7K tops around here. I'd offer him $5K, top out at 6K if I were looking and an in-person inspection didn't reveal any major problems.

Remember, a T5 usually means 3.31's. A Dana 44 with 3.31's = $750ish
Hardtop and doors $$$
Laredo steering Wheel, factory console with lock/key, clock tach, Laredo grab bar $$$
Chrome Wagons with BFG's $$$
Superwinch hubs $$

Lots of options on that Jeep, that if bought separately would add up quick.

Hi,
If that Jeep does not work out, I do have a 1986 CJ7 Laredo. Its never been off-road, is all original except for a Weber Carb has been installed - I still have the original carb. It has less than 3k miles on it. The only issue is the tranny slips a bit. I am in CO but can deliver. Its purple with all stainless steel. If interested, let me know. I'm putting it on Craigslist and Ebay as soon as the mechanic, a firefighter fighting forest fires here in CO, is back and I can pick it up - he was looking at the tranny. Although the purple paint job is awesome, there are some scratches.
Pat

Look at the underside very carefully since the floor pans were replaced. There has to be more under there.

Good Luck............

So, test drove the CJ yesterday. Mechanically it is sound! A few things to do but not much. I almost forgot just how loose the steering is on the CJ's! Been 12 years since I sold mine. Couple of things I have to think about, first is that the drivers seat would not go back far enough. It was already hitting the roll bar so I may have to swap out he seats. Some minor surface rust, nothing to bad. Undercarriage looked nice. I guess I have some decisions to make!! Thanks for the replys, will keep you posted.

Steering intermediate shaft is probably worn out. I need to replace both of mine (especially the one on the mud Jeep) and plan on going Borgeson.
