I'd say so far its been worth it. even though the one i got is kinda rough, it didnt run perfect and had some small rust areas. in the short time I've had it I've gotten it up to almost perfect running condition cause the engine is so easy to work on. It only cost me about 150 too for some vacuum hoses, valve cover gasket and a new radiator. the rust spots are next, followed by a couple coats of monstaliner.
Like I said I'm new to jeeps but it seems to me that so long as the frame is solid along with most of the chassis and its not too bad mechanically go for it I havent regretted my purchase at all despite the flaws. I'm liking the community too. everytime I drive it theres somebody waving or coming over to me to talk to me about the jeep whether or not they currently own one, everyones got a story about a jeep, at least where I'm at in the CO rockies.
