well first, do you want round head lights or square ones??? really it comes down to which jeep you like better. if you are looking for a more comfortable ride (comfortable is a relative term when talking jeeps) than you will want the 97. it has coil springs instead of leaf springs, it more than likely has a/c and the heating / cooling system is a little better. if this is a daily driver i would take the tj over the yj any day. like i said before, it comes down to whick you like better.
i have a yj i love it he is right about the interior. but my interior gets trashed. the only thing that i don't like is the factory flex. mind you my jeep is far from factory. i got it cause i am doing a coil over shock conversion. i say for a starter go for the TJ. i don't like there headlights. but that's about it, lifts are not cheap but are more complete. its just all around easier to work with. plus you don't have to deal with vacuum.
94 yj, 4" procomp lift, 3" body lift, sliders, cshr corners, d44 e locker rear swap, 35" bfg at's, 4.10 gears, crown 7 layer brake lines, jks discos, jks track bar disco, 97cherokee 4.0 swap.
next up twizted soa full widths. 14bolt and dana44

you are talking about 2 different worlds. i love yj's but they aren't for everyone. tj rides a little smoother, and is a little more refined. yj is rougher, less car like. drivelines are basically the same for the years you're talking about
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president." http://mybroadband.co.za/photos/data...re_cowbell.gif
