well... post pics or more details. Has it been wrecked, is it rusty, does it come with tires? HAHA. You people crack me up.

a couple small pieces of info...

THINK about the auto and if it fits your driving style. I would get down under it and check for the following leaks.
1. Oil Pan.
2. TransPan, bell housing, fill tube, etc.
3. tcase output yoke seals.
4. both diffs.

Check Engine light on?
Any exhaust leaks?
Engine ok from cold start(don't let the guy start it and warm it up for you)?
List of items replaced?
List of mods?
Condition of wiring harness and elec? (for some reason people like to remove things and not put them back as they were)
Take a look at the current emissions paperwork.

...I'll stop there for now...

Finding issues is not always a bad thing, you can make a lower offer if you have a valid reason like needing to replaced a broken part, etc.

I would add, take someone else that is familiar with jeeps to also look at it, sometimes someone that has no personal interest in the jeep might have a better view of things.

Good choice on the 32RH auto tranny.
