Does it have the options you want? That's the important thing. What are they asking for it? How are you going to use it?

His add ons are not worth a lot of money, they are worth maybe 10% of their original cost.

That "full roll bar with padding" is the factory sport cage. It's not really a roll bar.

Looks like a stock tie rod and drag link from the picture.

I'm not a fan of the 3.8L 4.88's are not the right gear for the auto on 37's. You should be running 5.38's with those tires. On 37's you really need to look at the front end carefully. Those tires will cause a lot of things to fail. Ball Joints, Unit bearings, track bar. If it's the stock steering gear (PS pump, PS box) and you plan on going off road, those won't cut it when locked. I'm also not a fan of buying a modified Jeep. You just don't know how well it was done.

If you want it, go for it but I wouldn't pay anymore for it that KBB pricing for a stock 08 Rubicon 2 Dr. which is between $10K and $13K

06 KJ
12 JK, 2.5" Teraflex lift, Bilstein 5100's, BFG KM3's 37x12.5/R17
17 WK2 Trailhawk
