What condition is the Jeep in? How much rust on the body? Why did it stop running? Was it used for plowing (frame cracks)? How is the frame, much rust or rot? Is this a project Jeep and will need a lot of work? Is there a top that is in gd condition? How is the interior? Do you need a new top and interior?
This is the kind of scenario if your neighbor wants too much you say 'No thanks, but keep me in mind' and you wait. Unless you are really gung ho then pay his price (but use the things I mentioned above to get the price down)
My Jeep was an old plow Jeep when I bought it. The body was shot, but it ran. The frame was cracked but all the original drivetrain was intact. I paid $500. Then she got a 5 year professional restoration. Now it is like brand new (even better).
What are you planning on doing with the Jeep? Daily driver, restore or off roading?
