Newbie from Wisconsin!

Greetings! Former 2001 Sahara owner here, and been missing it ever since we got rid of it a few years ago. Been looking to get a TJ for my wife and I to tinker on, which will be a toy for the wife in the summer and a winter car for me

Amazing what the dealers want for these things, we just looked at a 99 TJ yesterday with "only" 88k miles that needed brakes, u-joints, muffler, had all kinds of body and frame rail rust, passenger side floor pan was cruddy, and had a windshield leak - and they wanted $7k for it.

Apparently I need to look at the classifieds more
