Default 1998 zj ? NEW PICS! UPDATE

so im looking at a 98 zj, 318. auto, leather, i believe its a limited. pretty good condition, a couple small dents a few small scratches, hatch lock doesnt work, cracked windshield. not bad tho. has 185k. what do you guys thinks this is worth? are the 318s good for higher mileage?jeep is stock, with good tread on the tires,

EDIT:

Ok, this is a 93, it has been confirmed, the guy is older, and has some medical problems, and was confused. its is a 93!

The 4.0, in the Jeep world, is more tried and true, but the 5.2 seems to be a rather reliable engine as well.

I was concerned about it and made a thread: http://www.mallcrawlin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=17777

As for a fair price, I paid $2000 for my 98 ZJ with 176,XXX miles with the engine has been replaced. Small problems, like yours. I think anywhere from $1900-$2300 would be fair. Would like to see some bigger pics though.

I do want a wrangler, but im taking what i can afford, a jeep of any kind, is better than no jeep.

And i am still awaiting more pictures, the ZJ is in south bend so, yeah. ill update as soon as i get the other pics.

well good luck with the zj, i love mine. but first thing you're prolly gonna wanna do is replace the 249 cause it's pretty gay. if you do get into modding a zj, check out mallcrawlin, it's a grand cherokee centered forum, they have sick rigs on there.

I love my '97 ZJ..... I would say that if you could get it for under $3k, then it would be a pretty good deal.

Unfortunately, that's not a 98. 96+ had a different interior, and the badging was on the door, not the fender.

Which means, as newest, this is a 95, I'd say $2000 max.

That's what a 98 dashboard should look like. Then, like said above, the lack of flip window on the rear, and the fender badging - it's definitely not a 98.

93 or 94 with that Interior. 95 had the awesome fluffy pillow seats. 96-98 had a much more modern look.

Also on 96+ the front grill was bigger and the bumper dropped down to accommodate for. it.

Those are also the older rim Style.

This is a 1994, notice rims and grille


1996, notice Rims and grille
