New member ready to jump all in, with a question

Just joined as I am ready to get back to jeepin'. Just as a starter, Jeeps have changed a lot since my CJ-5, but getting stuck on on the term "RARE" everywhere. I am reworking two jeeps. CJ-7 and an '88 YJ.
Question:While looking for parts I am finding mixed messages. '88 is a 6cyl, auto and A/C carburated. I keep seeing "RARE on ads and get told jeep not worth that much when looking for parts but then get offers to "take off my hands". 85 CJ is for me but want 88 for daughter and it runs and everything works. Is the 88 worth the trouble to make perfect again and daughter enjoy or am I getting flim flam info from schiesters about the "rare" thing and not able to get parts???

It's up to you, but if I had both of your Jeeps, I'd fix them up. Value is in the eye of the beholder. You can find ANYTHING on the internet so eventually you should find the parts you need.

In the mean time . . .
