Buying a 2000 disco II

I'm considering buying a 2000 disco 2 for the wife.It has 97,000 miles and they are asking $5,000 for it.
Does this sound like a good price? What should I look for??

Thanks,
Eric

price is a little bit high in my opinion, I'd expect more around 3-4k or so for a 2000..

Things to look for;

- Front driveshaft... needs to be replaced with one with grease fittings, and greased regularly, the stock ones are prone to failure, which can take out the transmission'

- find out if it's had its head gaskets replaced... most of these trucks have their head gaskets go, and need to be replaced before 100k miles... have to make sure that it was not overheated either... once they are overheated, the liners can slip and/or block can crack.. make sure there is no coolant loss, or smell of coolant in the exhaust

Thanks Ryan,

I think I might back out of it, but still plan on looking at it.
Aftrer looking on the discoweb, alot of people say the same thing about coolant leaks leading up to major work.
