Tell your parents that instead of a new Jeep you want your $10,000 put into a Roth IRA. When you are 67 you will be a millionaire and your sisters car will be long gone......

Keep the YJ

Like many others have posted you will be putting a lot more cash into the rubi cause of extra payments. Insurance payments on the YJ will be less and seeing as its most likely already paid off and hopefully in your name you can do anything you want to it with out asking permission. So keep it and hav efun with it

Yes sir paid $3,000 for it up front. Great running motor, solid front end, solid frame. Just need a bit of body work to make it ideal. And yeah, my dad said I can do what I want with it, but if I break it I fix it. And I can add what I want to it, but he still throws in his suggestions like going with a 2.5 inch lift instead of a 3.5 or 4 lol.

That's the best case (politically ) so when next one come around you can possibly get better support and help from them (since you've been a nice kid, kinda Santa approach )

I would keep the yj. Yea you might have to put some $ into it but it will be nowhere near the $ you will put into just buying the other. And if you go with the newer jeep and want to lift it. It can cost twice as much as a yj. Yj parts (factory and aftermarket) are cheaper. Just think what you could do to a yj with $10,000 (the cost of the new jeep)

I'm sure that you can find the resources that you need. I know guys that will work on a Wrangler for pizza because they just love to work on them.
That is so true. I have done that. Pizza and keep me supplied with gatoraid. A friend of mine lives 300 miles away and one day he called me up and said he finally bought a 89 yj for $700 not running and wanted to know when I can come down to help. I said I was out the door. Got there and got it running with a carb swap. Got all I could eat crab legs for that trip. But most if all I have a new riding buddy

Keep the YJ, it has more space in it, the TJ's a all plastic in side, & are a smaller interior due to that. Plus, I sure you can find someone in you area with a welder that you could make friends with.... I did an 8.8 Ford Explorer w/ Disc brakes swap in a Saturday + it came with a Limited slip. Hell, I go more places in 2WD now, than I used to in 4WD. I just need to get the Front-end re-geared & locked, then I'll be set. You can do the same, cheaper that buying a Rubi.

That's my 2 cents worth, No Car payment is AWESOME!!!!

PLUS, the insurance is CHEAP!!
