2002 Jeep Wrangler salvage title

So I'm looking to buy a Jeep Wrangler I don't really care what year it is just as long as it's a manual, has under 115,000 miles, and is under $15,000.

I've found one on Craigslist about 20 minutes away from my house. A 2002 Jeep Wrangler with a salvage title on 35's. My question is, is it worth the 13,500 he's asking for it with the salvage title. Haven't talked to the guy yet but the way I look at it, a salvage title is a salvage title. From doing research I learned that a salvage title can be placed on a vehicle from anything like being completely totaled to having it vandalized. The jeep has 89,xxx miles on it just not sure about the salvage title. What are your thoughts?

I should probably mention I haven't talked to the guy yet so don't know what it's considered salvaged.

Thanks for your help!

IMHO, it isn't as simple as a salvage title is a salvage title. The type of salvage title can be very significant. For example, if it is a flood salvage title, there are many states where it can't be registered for tags/plates. Because of such, a flood salvage title could mean the vehicle has practically no value at all, let alone over $13K, because its basically limited to only off-road usage on private land.
