2500 sounds pretty darn good, I'd buy it if he doesn't. At that price, even with all the extras, it would be fairly easy to drop in a new engine if that one is gone.

That is a very good price. I would go for it. I ran up to 35" tires with a 2.5, they are a good little engine for trail and around town, but a little underpowered for the highway. The good thing is, that when it comes time to swap the 2.5 out, you can lift it out by yourself with 1 hand.
I bought my 89 YJ about 6 years ago for $3700 with 89K on the engine.

I bought my 89 YJ with the 2.5 and 91k miles for $1500. It runs and has no rust. I think whenever people hear 4 cylinder they figure they should just stay the hell away from it. But it is a great lil engine, mine has 101k now on it and still runs beautifully, I have only had to replace a cracked manifold in the 5 years or so that I have owned it.
