New member from Iowa (still shopping)

A couple of years ago I gave up my Silverado for a Subaru Outback after taking a new job 45 miles away and did not want to foot that Silverado gas bill. I gave up the Subaru after the headgaskets went and now I'm shopping.

I have a 40 acre playground in sorthern Iowa that I mainly use for deer hunting but enjoy just being outdoors down there the rest of the year. I was considering some sort of UTV but now am leaning more towards a Wrangler that I can use as a street legal UTV.

I grew up rebuilding corvettes with my Dad, with our biggest project a full body off restoration of a 1958. That was over 20 years ago but I still think I remember how to use a wrench. So I am shopping for a drivable project vehicle that I can turn into something more down the road.

I have found a few threads on what to look for as far as frames rusting etc. Would love to hear other ideas on starting a new project. I am sure this is a common theme so pointers to some old threads would be appreciated as well. In the mean time I will keep browsing, lots of good stuff on here.

Thanks!

welcome dckelley! So many places here to look for that info, I suggest narrowing it down to which Wrangler (CJ/YJ/TJ/JK) first, and checking out those specific forums.
