Should I trade for a TJ?

I paid $4,500 for a 4.0 '92 YJ a year and a half ago. I've loved it since I got it. I enjoyed the maintenance that came along with it. Parts are cheap and I had the time, tools and space to do the work. Now, I don't really have the tools or space to do the work and I think I need to replace the slave cylinder I'm getting pretty tired of having to fix something every other month. Should I just spend a little bit and upgrade to a TJ? Will I have less repairs or do they share the same amount of attention as the YJ?

I think it depends on how well the TJ was taken care of. Also, TJ's started in 97 is its not like they are a crazy improvement over a YJ, just redesign.

You can swap in a external slave on the 92 to make future repairs a bit better. as for the TJ, as stated depend on how well it was taken care of.. I have a both and prefer the simple nature of the YJ.
