Default 88 yj, bent frame and other issues

Hello, I'm new here...and I just had a question. I've stumbled across an '88 sahara for sale. It was sideswiped by an SUV and the frame is slightly bent near the right passenger door. Also, since being hit, it will only shift into 1st, 3rd, and 5th gear. The title is clear, but it obviously still needs repaired. Do you have any general idea of what may be wrong with it, and if so, is it an expensive fix? He's asking 2500 for it, and it's got low miles and is in perfect condition aside from that...

Tell him hes on crack, and offer $800. $2500 for a hit, fucked up, undriveable pile is a lot of dough.

2500 for a busted up yj??? Ha Haha hahahahaha. I agree with toivo, I wouldn't pay more than 800. If you look around for a while you should be able to find a fairly clean undamaged yj for 2500.
