Looks like a nice example, just depends on what you are looking to accomplish. This one looks pretty turn key, but does seem about 2K high for what it is. There are a few others in the Mobile craigslist that look nice and are a little closer to what I would expect.
As long as everything checks out on the one you posted (all the steering stuff is in good shape, T-case if smooth, trans is smooth, engine holds good compression) you would not go wrong for a weekend cruiser. Personally, my biggest concern on the one you listed would be the trans. At 115K a T4 or T5 is not long for the world before a rebuild. I would also check under the hood and dash to see how much of a mess has been made out of the wiring.
If you are looking to modify it I would look to one that has a little more groundwork done as it is exponentially cheaper to build off of someone else's project than tho start from scratch.
Building a Jeep is like playing golf, every now and then you get a good shot that makes you believe, hey I can do this!
I'd say $7,500-$7,900 would be a fair price for a dealer sale. $8,900 would make sense if it were a Laredo package in that condition, but the base version shouldn't be that high. If you need that particular Jeep, plan on keeping it because you'll most likely lose money if you try and sell it any time soon.
if you go for this one be weary of the body, i spy a new paint job and the remnants of bondo. go to your auto parts store and get a guage that tells you the thickness of the bondo. it is a little magnet that has a guage attached to it and it extends unill it breaks free giving you a good idea of how thick it is.
Only in America do you have the God given right to be loudly opinionated about something that you are completly ignorant of.
I'm with Davis. It's been molested enough to make it worth "less" than 9k, IMO. Rollbar is not factory, paint isn't original (you can see red paint in the front fender to tub gap), wheels are obviously not original, nor are the wide flares and chrome "accents". It's a nice Jeep, but I'd be wary of bondo. Getting a good look at the underside ought to reveal a good bit as well. Florida CJ prices run high just like South Carolina, but I'd try to avoid paying 9k unless you absolutely can't walk away from it.
