Default 88 MJ. might buy this later today

i was on my way to buy ammo when i seen this 88 mj at a car lot. its lifted but i didnt look to see what kind of lift...shows to have 262xxx miles. 4.0/5 speed. motor is really clean, had new ac parts and more. new tires but they do not match. they are 31/10.5. has salvage title but i didnt see anything other than the drivers door that looked like it was hit... drivers door is starting to rust under the bondo.... when you let it sit and idle for more then a few mins the rpms start to drop slow and will die.... also it has a part time 4wd light that is staying on. the seat dont match the rest of the truck and when i sat in it i felt like i was really high in the cab... they want 3250 for the truck.... if i can get them down to 27-2800ish ill buy it. ive been looking for a mj for a while now.

Looks like there is alot of potential there. That seet does look pretty tall considering the steering wheel is all the way up.

im going to agree with 89eliminator on this one. all the little thing and some big ones. mileage, salvage title, mis matched tires, torn seats.

it looks good, but even $2200 is pushing it for me. dont offer him more then that for sure.

$10 says that the exhaust manifold is cracked.

Honestly, I think AMC had to get a committee together to make a seriously bad manifold.

Oh, and yeah, $2200 is high. $2000 is better, but only if it passes smog. ( you guys have smog there?)

smart move, dude. it's not worth it for 2000, especially with someone else's lift job on it (are those coils on the rear shocks????), mismatched tires, and a salvage title. a 1989 MJ, auto with 4.0 and 4wd in CT, only missing front bumper, sells for 300 bucks. an MJ in damn good condition with a 5 speed, 4.0, and 4wd should peobably sell for about 1500
