ehh. there's not much to go off of. looks like a nice jeep but it could use some tuning. $2500 if it's in as good of shape as it looks. motor swaps always worry me

Looks pretty nice for the cash. Needs way more tire with that much lift though.

He don't say what lift is on it that kinda bothers me,As long as nothing major is wrong with it i would buy it.And that gas mileage sounds about right remember a 4x4 is always hard on gas.A friend of mine has a bone stock 90s wrangler with the 4 cylinder and he only gets 18mpg in it.

the truck by itself in "good " shape books at 1,700 so for another thou you get a couple thou worth of extras
but be warned obviously this trk is off roaded which means its subject to alot more stress than youre typical daily driver and you can and should plan on alot of little things going bad, not to say dont buy it just know what to expect.if you dont have the skills to fix it or the money than it might be good to look for a stock truck that hasnt been off roaded and do the mods youreself. just something to think about. good luck with whatever you decide

Rough country and rusty's are two different companies, lol. Does it still have Stock Gears? Junk Yard Motor? at 6.5" and only on 31's? I think 31's look too small on my 4.5". Really the only thing it's got going it is the new steering components if that's true, Control arm drop brackets if you never plan on going long arms, the bumpers, skids, and safari rack.
