Looking to Buy my first jeep

hey guys,

wanted to get some information on what the best years for jeeps are to buy? this will be my first jeep, looking for something I can have fun with in the summer and plow my driveway and a few investments I have in the winter. I like the CJ's and also the YJ, everything I have found online so far has been 4 bangers, found a decent 86 cj, not sure if going the carborated route is good or bad.

Also looking for one that hasnt been lifted and moded to much is tough also.

this is one I am looking at

Jeep CJ-7

any help would be greatly appreciated, looking forward to joining the jeep life style (they have been taunting me driving to work, every other car has been some variation of a wrangler!)

Thanks for any help

The thing about the wranglers is they are probably the most modifiable vehicle on the planet. Not only that they are a blast to drive. If you are looking to have fun but use it to plow snow, you are definitely want a bigger engine then the 4 banger.

Take your time and keep looking. Don't rush into buying anything. Its also good your looking for a near stock one. Means when you mod it you will know how things are done, plus its fun to do it yourself.

Took me like 4-5 months of craigslist hunting to buy the one I have now. I just was patient and waited for the right deal. Welcome to the forum!
