ya its a bit high, i ran a KBB for your area and "excellent condition" for that vehicle is 8,065 while "good" (which it sounds like this vehicle is) is at 7,520. so i would try to talk him down some, show him the KBB and go from there.

good luck on your search

Good job. I bought my son a 95 SE (Rio Grande) two years ago and it has run like a top since then. Mom's like the fact that it is only a 4 cylinder (not knowing that is way plenty to get into trouble with....).

The cut in the window is nothing - plenty of replacements out there.

And gee, you've got all that nice back country just south of you....

Sounds like a good deal, I picked up a 98 Wrangler SE in Chesterfield a couple of weeks ago. Sounds like yours is in a little better shape than mine, I need a new top and have some work to do on the radio.
