1993 YJ Sahara - Should I buy it?

Should I buy it? Do you see any red flags? Would it be very involved to get it back to stock?

Thanks in advance for your input!!!

Body rust indicates the frame may be rotted. You need to use a hammer and screwdriver to prove the frame for rot.

Doesn’t look very modified. Small lift and small tires. Easy to convert to stock but seems like a waste of time given the rig is barely modified.

Thanks for the reply. I'll give the frame a good hard look.

I'm not concerned about it being stock for collectability or anything. I just prefer the look.

I've seen a lot worse! Great color, nice hard top, and it looks to be in decent shape. As Duck said, be very cautious with rust. If the frame has any holes or areas that you can poke a screwdriver through, walk away. If it looks good underneath, check the tub for any other signs of rust. Look in the fender wells, floor pans, and anywhere near weatherstripping. If there's some spots, it isn't a deal-breaker, but it's good to know what kind of condition it's in. Other than that, you've got a post-Renix I6 which is extremely reliable, so aside from regular maintenance, there isn't a lot to look for mechanically. If the numbers are right, buy it. She's pretty

Check the frame where the power steering box mounts, drivers side front of frame. They had a tendency to rot in that spot. Good Luck!
