Lookin for a new jeep and I need opinions

my Red '90 YJ got totaled, rearended at a stoplight, she was in a 95 maxima, and going 35, totaled her car, My Jeep and the Taurus she pushed me into...
2xs's mods thread

So, Im looking for a replacement Jeep, kinda prefer a YJ, as I have TONS of YJ stuff already...

BUT, What color?

Yellow? or Black?

The Yellow one is in AWESOME condition (3 tops and CLEAN!), the black one is in decent condition, good paint, and CLEAN too, only a soft top, but my Hard Top and full doors survived the accident, so....

Im balking on the yellow one, its just SO YELLOW, I like it, but... will I get Barbiejeep shit for driving it?

there are other Jeeps im looking at, but these 2 are at the top of my list.

Yellow one looks like it's in great shape. But from the pics, kinda looks like the tires are out..

More info on the price and mileage? I painted my XJ yellow and love it..

Both are listed at $5500/BO
Both are 4.0L AX15

I have the wheels and tirs from my wrecked 90 and they are not bent.
Ill be lifting it 4ish inches and swapping my 4:10 geared front and rear axles over.

Another black one appeared in my area, clean (so far) and has a hard topa nd full doors, so I wouldnt have to paint my red doors...
