Need buyer advice!
 
I Am out to purchase a Jeep WK and found this one should I jump on it? It looks like he has done a rear bumper swap for a SRT8 bumper and exhaust which i don't mind because the rear end looks mean.. If you guys think I should try and pick this up what price? or should I stay away because of the miles being 124,000..? Thanks guys!!!

That seems like a good deal. I would try to feel the owner out and gauge if he/she seems like the type of person who took care of the Jeep, and didn't just thrash it and isn't trying to pass a whipped vehicle off on someone.

It says best offer. Try to see the lowest he will go.. It looks cool though.. See if he has receipts of work done. Bring a mechanic friend with you.. Good luck..

So judging by your comments I should be jumping on it right away? Ill call him up and tell him I was to see it right away! How much does a rear bumper srt8 and exhaust swap cost? I think it looks so good! I also have another 2005 jeep I can get for 8K it has 92,000 fully loaded no navigation it's the 4.7L but it stalls and that makes me nervous it stalls at the stop lights and signs...

Staying clear from this one finally got ahold of the seller and its a rebuilt title (Michigans Orange Title) I still love the cars looks but I can't trust it!

Exactly fish...run as fast and as far away from that vehicle as possible.

Thank you that looks great!! Mine will be a little darker I'm thinking but I am going to deffinently do the black and follow your look with the matte icons. Debadge the rear besides the 4x4 and Jeep and tint everything.

Cool, good luck !

I am having a bit of trouble actually painting the exhaust as the paint seemed to have flaked off, I think I need a higher temp rating paint, some industrial paint that is used for painting BBQs or blast furnaces perhaps :lol: ..

Everything was painted except for the door pillars which where vinyl wrapped in matte black. All trim was removed for painting, except for the window trim on the rear cargo area windows as they are glued on, so they where painted whilst on the truck.

post pictures once your done, looking forward to seeing the darker grey project !

Sounds good will keep it updated I'm excited about it Aswell! I would say for the exhaust look into the BBQ paint although after awhile that even starts to flake off so you will need some tough stuff.. Or maybe just give it a touch up here and there.
