Thoughts on this used Jeep?

Hi everyone,

Looking at a used TJ. 7k, 140k miles, 6 cyl. 2004 TJ Sahara. I don't know anything other than what I can see in pics.

I'm mainly worried about rust. From what you can see is it just body rust or frame too?

Thanks

$7000 seems a little high but I'd definitely check the frame and body mounts

A couple of things pop out:
-Trimmed flares may indicate the PO ran oversized tires, which could have damaged or stressed stock components.
-That 2" receiver appears to attach to the crossmember. It should bolt to frame.
-It appears to have been owned by a posturing teen who probably values neon headlight bezels over frame integrity.

Is it high? I figured it might be a good deal considering the rust and high-ish mileage. Not sure though. What makes you say that?

What are similar jeeps going for in your area?

I'm seeing enough rust to make me concerned. You need to inspect the frame on it if you are interested and be prepared to walk.

Price seems a bit high but the local market may be dictating that.
