Doesn't look like a bad deal to me. The parts are worth that. It could be a major pita depending on what is wrong with it. Just wondering what "needs TLC" involves. If it will run and drive and 4wd works I say it is worth 800

While there could be a million things wrong with it, $800 for a running Laredo sounds like a great deal to me. Hop on that ASAP. If all it needs is a little TLC to be a real daily driver, loads of folks wil plop down a few grand for a decent CJ. If so, sell it for a profit and use the coin for a trail rig. Otherwise, use it as a trail rig for your self.
