You can find one in much better condition for that price. I'd keep looking.

Mine was in about that state minus the locker and the lift. I paid $2500.

What I did was do a search on Craigslist, then sign up for an alert based on that search. Anything that gets posted in my city, plus about 6-8 other cities within a few hours, I get an email with a link to that posting. You'll have to do a separate alert in each city. For me, I did Birmingham, where I live, plus Tuscaloosa (45 minutes away), Montgomery (1.5 hours), Dothan (3 hours, but my Dad lives there), Huntsville (less than 2 hours), Gadsden (45 minutes), Meridian MS (closer to 3 hours, but have family nearby), and a few others. It is easy to just check your email every day, and most of the time there are several links in the email. I kept it pretty generic and just used the word Jeep as the search item, so I see Grand Cherokees, Libertys, etc plus folks selling rims, parts, and who knows what else. But it is nice to just have them emailed to me instead of searching and scrolling to see what might be new from the last time I hit up craigslist.

Found this. It doesn't have hard doors or top but price is right and looks clean. http://phoenix.craigslist.org/cph/cto/5011280424.html

You should definitely buy that one if it isn't too late. Good price, great shape.

That's a nice looking jeep. That price is even better. Unless something is wrong with it not disclosed you better jump on that one. In Florida that jeep would sell for 8 to 9thousand all day.
