buying and shipping a jeep

I ran into what I think might be an AMAZING DEAL.

this guy from my neighborhood has a 1988 jeep that he has completely redone:

Fiberglass body
Power Steering
Hela Lights
Short shifter
Rebuilt Engine (inline 6)
Rebuilt Clutch
Dual Exhaust
2 inch lift
Custom tubular bumpers with spare tire mount
33" tires
Wedge speakers
New Top, full rag top, half top and rear compartment cover
Waterproof seats

I was looking for something in the 5-6K range. He is askng a bit more than that, but with all the mods -- I really like the car.

The car has been kept outside in New England so: the paint has dulled from the sun, especially the hood and the springs have rust on them.

I am moving to California, so I hoped to buy a rust free car in Cali.

I am really planning on using the car as a everyday car, so the fiberglass body and other mods sounds good, but the car is a little more than I want to pay and I would have to ship it.

Any guess how much this car is worth?

Anyone ever shipped a jeep cross country?

Are you buying a car or a jeep? Make up your mind Also, an '88 model is a YJ (this is the CJ forum). You might get a better response in the YJ forum, but my guess is that you can find a jeep with the same mods in the 5-6K range. Depending on a lot of other things, it might be worth what he's asking, but I didn't see anything you listed that would cost all that much. Oh, and why does he have dual exhaust on an inline 6?

I would steer clear of 87 and 88 YJ's

Haven't ever heard anything good out of them. For what he is asking you can get alot of nice JEEPS.

Here in Texas Jeeps sell for a Premium and an 88 YJ, with that stiff on it or not would never go for more than $5K.
I think it is a little overpriced.
just my .02, but like others stated you may want to try the YJ or Wrangler Forum since this one is for real Jeeps.

I'm putting dual exhaust on my I6, not due to the negligable performance gains but really just for looks.
