Just joined the site and had a few questions to ask. First off, I don't own a Jeep yet. I am looking to trade off my F150 and buy one though. The main reason for getting a Jeep will be to pull around a pulling tractor (9200 Lbs) through the pits at the pulls.
As an added bonus I would occasionally like to take it to the river and do some mild riding.
Finally, it will most likely become my semi daily driver.
I definately don't plan on turning it into any kind of trail rig and will probably keep the customization pretty mild (rims/tires/and anything cool I see that is CHEAP).
I'd like to keep the budget around 3-5K. Hence why I am thinking that the YJ is the vehicle for me. The CJ's are cool, but it seems the price of them are just as high or more than the YJ's. I've read that the 4.0 is the motor to get. Is this because of power? Reliability? Serviceability? Also is there a certain transmission to stay away from?
Sorry for so many questions, I just hate buying a vehicle and later realizing a vehicle with a couple different options would have been so much better.
Thanks for the help, any questions just ask.
