Default 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee *Price Drop $2750*

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo: 144,xxx miles
This is my daily driver and has been a great car since I've had it. I bought it to daily drive instead of my wrangler, but I drive 170 miles per day for work so I need something a little better on gas. The jeep is in great condition for a '97 with very little rust. It is not in perfect shape and does have some minor scratches and dings, but overall very good shape. It has never been offroad since I have had it(or at all to my knowledge). It could use a few little things that just havn't bothered me enough to fix, which I will list below.
The Good:
-Relatively low milage for the age
-4.0L inline 6 still runs good
-New muffler
-Very little rust
-Interior is in good shape (all power windows, seats, and locks work)
-Roof rack goes with it
-Great daily driver or project vehicle, it is ready to go and really needs nothing
-Extra set of wheels and tires go with it (2 good tires, 2 are not good)

The Bad:
-Trunk lift gate supports could be replaced. They are like $23 for new ones. (I just prop the truck open with a broken hockey stick)
-Muffler should be welded or clamped better(I replaced the muffler at school and had minimal tools and a couple of the clamps were not the right size so it sounds like the muffler is bad but it's just not a good seal from the muffler to exhaust pipe)
-Only bad rust is on the front of the hood(shown in pics)
-AC needs a recharge (I prefer windows so I just havn't bothered)

I would like to get $2750 for the jeep including the extra set of wheels and tires. I would consider partial trades for guns (looking for a 1911 or AR15 in particular) or Jeep TJ parts.
