Daveys Jeeps or equivalent

Looking at purchasing my first jeep....Wanting to stay in the TJ era but open.
I've been tossing around the idea of getting something a little banged up so I can 1, get it cheaper and 2, I want to work on it when I get it either way.

Do you think buying a jeep from a site like this: D A V E Y S J E E P S . C O M - Specializing in Jeeps & Jeep Parts
is a good idea ? (if so..do you have links to similar websites?)

Thanks....

That place has a good rep and lots of people use it for used parts....However, to buy an entire jeep it would probably be better to buy local so you can see what you're getting first hand....there's jeeps for sale everywhere and you would, i think, want to inspect and drive before shucking out the coin.....IMHO...check ebay and local craigslist for jeeps in you spec range.....

Yeah have to agree, buying a totaled Jeep can be an experience, and you really need to know what it's going to take to fix it, before you buy it.

My CJ5 looked like it needed a front bumper and the frame horns tweaked at the bumper, when the insurance company totaled it. Unless you looked close you could have easily missed the cracked trans case and transfer case.
