So to build it the way he wants he will have 22.9K into it? I would consider it cost prohibited...I don’t think I would put 10k into it with that many miles, I doubt you could ever get it back out. With that being said with the mileage you’re driving per year in your Jeep I would look at maybe unloading both and maybe ponying up 10-15 for a TJ with decent miles. You’re in NC, right? The other day I saw a sweet 2003 X that was super clean with 57,000 miles on it. Location was Asheville I believe. The Wrangler was listed at 12,900...not much above the 10k you’re looking to put into this one.
