I am a 17 year old who has worked his butt off to be able to afford a car. I have about $9000 and am ready to buy a jeep (my dream vehicle). I have come across a 1999 tj with 57000 miles. It has a small lift and 32x11.5 AT's on it. I'm in love with the way it looks and seems to be in pretty good condition with minimal rust. They are asking 8.5. Is this a good buy and what should i offer? Thanks!
New fenders? Paint works fine. Suggestions? Talk them down like I said. Even with low miles, I would question the front rake. Are they wanting more because of the mud tires, tube bumper, and light bar? See how it rides before offering anything. Report back on vibes, steering shimmy, tracking, and sounds.
Thanks Everyone! The only problem is that i have to drive about a hour and 1/2 to get to the dealership, so its more of a one and done thing. if it drives well and i get under the vehicle and there is minimal rust ill offer around 7000. What will rust do to the vehicle overtime, and is there anything i can do about it?
