It could be a little high, but the inside and outside of this jeep are very clean. I would say almost as clean as you can find. For everyone saying in the $6,500 to $8,500 range please send me the jeeps your finding lol.

I cannot find a clean jeep, under 130,000 miles for less than $10k.

I have a 2004 LJ I bought 2 years ago for 10,500 with 130,000 on it. My boss has has been trying to find a Jeep. He said the prices are so high right now that he would give me what I paid for it in a heartbeat. Not sure where y’all are getting y’all’s values from but he sure wishes he could find one for sale in that range. He said mine would go for 15k in this market. But I’m not selling.

It’s been a couple years since I’ve owned a TJ but sold my last one in 2015. I am of the mindset though from watching them since that 11,5 is way on the upper end.

I’m not sure what you are looking to do with the Jeep but if you plan to drive it on the highway for very significant amounts of time a hard top was an absolute must. At an absolute minimum would be full doors but you will never regret a hard top.

33” tires without 4:50+ gearing would be an absolute dog on the highway and a great way to break a Dana 35 if you are going to play on rocks.

Stay away from 00 and 01 4.0L due to the 331 head issues.

05 and 06 had an oil pump issues but there is a replacement part more readily available.

As others mentioned when I was test driving jeeps even the smallest list throw the suspension out of whack and death wobble is very horrible.

Find a clean 03 or 04 rubicon that hasn’t been lifted. It will go anywhere and be a pleasure to drive on the highway.

Last note, after I sold my 03 rubicon I wanted a ride for the lease. My budget wouldn’t afford me a TJ so I found a clean YJ. They aren’t on the same planet and it was a big let down that I sold a few months later.

that's a clean one for sure, looks like you've been doing your homework. if you like it, buy it - they are a blast. It seems high but my 2001 has a lot more miles and i won't let it go for under $9,500.

I bought this 97 TJ with 6 cylinder, manual transmission, 6 inch lift and about 110k miles for $7500 but it was several years ago.

I've had a bunch of G.P.'s,and I wouldn't give that for a '97.I would for a '98,if it was identical to it.
