Dude, you can't get discouraged. I actually looked for over a year, and that's the God's honest truth, over a year, before I found my 84 CJ7. Keep in mind a few things when you're looking at any CJ's
#1) THEY ARE OLD. you're going to have some issues. Unless your wallet has no bottom and you can afford one that has been redone from the ground up.
#2) Be patient. The right jeep is out there, you just have to be willing NOT to settle for any old jeep. If there is something you don't like about a jeep and it's not an easy/cheap fix, then walk away.
#3) Unless you're fabricator, painter, and mechanic, you're almost always going to end up with more in it than you'll ever get out of it. It's very rear for someone to say that they made money on selling there CJ. LOL
Anyway, it's just my two cents worth, I hope it helps.
