I am looking to possibly purchase an '89 K5. A small dealer has it and is asking $5995. It has 112,000 miles on it and according to Kelly Blue Book, the price is right on the money for my area (southcentral PA). The interior looks to be in mint condition and there is very little rust (under the tailgate, which seems to be common, and a small spot on the corner of the passenger door.) I have not driven it yet. I did not try the magnet test, but all the seams match up. Only exterior damage is a crack in the front plastic grill. The frame looks pretty solid and does not look as if it has been recently painted to hide anything. It has been sitting on his lot for the past month or so, and I am kinda waiting till I get my tax refund check because I do not want to finance an 11 y/o vehicle. Besides, if it is still there, maybe fate wants me to get out of this Cherokee (Jeep XJ) and into something a bit bigger. (No Jeep bashing, though. My '88 has 207,000 miles on it and still gets almost 20 mpg.) Any tips on what to check for? I did read the other post on purchasing, but just thought I 'd put mine up, too. Thanks for any help.
