1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport

Hello everyone, I am new here but I definately plan on sticking around because I am a Jeep kinda guy! I currently own an 88' Jeep Cherokee which has 222,000 miles on it and is frankly on its' last leg. Not far from my town is a dealers lot with a 1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport. The details are as follows:

Make/Body: 1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport Utility
Mileage: 72,998 miles
Engine: 4.0L V6
Transmission: 5 Speed Manual
Drive Type: 4 wheel drive - rear
Doors: Four door

Installed Options

* Air Conditioning
* Cloth Upholstery
* Front Bucket Seat(s)
* Cruise Control
* Cassette Player
* Tachometer

* Day-Night Lever
* Dual Sport Mirrors
* Fold Down Rear Seat
* Luggage Rack
* Power Outside Mirrors
* Dual Air Bags

* Leather Wrap Steering Wheel
* Power Door Locks
* Power Windows
* Tilt Wheel

The asking price is currently $5,995. Any ideas on if this is a good grab? I believe I can make a guess that it has a lot of life left in it because my 88' has 222,000 miles and is still running. Kelly Blue Book said it is worth $4,975 and I know KBB overprices sometimes. What would you all recommend asking for it? Is it a good pick? Thanks everyone!

this is definately a good find. Just make sure you look under the jeep and inspect it very well to make sure theres no hidden damage. Other than that i'd buy it

Thanks . I'm thinking about saying I'll give them $4,900 for it because KBB says it is overpriced by one grand. What kind of things should I look for under the Jeep, or in the hood, or inside the Jeep?

Did you end up buying this? Sounded like a nice jeep. Priced a bit high but worth it for the low mileage.
