97 TJ - Good deal?

I'm looking at a 1997 Wrangler Sport, 4.0L, 5sp, Alloy Wheels, A/C, Sound Bar, 69,600 Miles. Asking price is $9,595.00 Condition is excellent

How's it sound to you Jeep guys?

I want something to drive back and forth to work (80 mile round trip on interstate) and get 18-20MPG and still be able to get to the woods and hunt the weekends. I understand the TJ's are comfortable on the road. How good are they off-road in stock form? I'll be running on sugar sand trails with creek crossings of 6-18" of water.

I've found several 4cyl wranglers in the '92 to '95 range for $6k-$7k. Some seem to have acceptable power but most feel very underpowered.

I'd appreciate your opinions.
