New to the forum

Hey guys,

So I am pretty new to the forum, jeeps and most things. I am tired, it is late, and the search bar is too much work. I am looking into getting a jeep in the next few months and I was wondering what I should be looking for exactly. I want a mostly daily driver, weekend mudder/rockcrawler sort of thing. I want one that is easy to work on and easy to find tons of parts for it. My price range is hopefully around 6k but it is possible to go as high as 10k though I don't wanna get that high. Thanks for any help guys.

Welcome!! I think that you will find out that most of the Jeeps have parts readily available for them & they seem to be pretty easy to work on too. I've learned a lot from this forum, & others too.

Welcome! I think you can find a decent TJ without outrageous miles in that price range but probably closer to 10 than 6.

Thanks guys,

Another question I have. Since I live in Minnesota and I am heavily in the rust belt for used cars, do you guys think it is worth it to find something way south/winter stored to avoid rusted frames etc... or should I be ok if it isn't extremely high mileage?

Thanks again.

If your looking for a Daily driver and want to find parts easy within your price range you can find a really nice fully restored YJ. They're easy to work on and you can go on Craigslist and find literally anything for them. I drive a YJ for a daily driver and I love it but I would recommend getting a 4.0 if you plan on driving on the highway much. You would even have money left over for mods if you find the right one! Good luck.

By the way real jeeps have leaf springs and square head lights!
