That would be the place ~~~~
Every thing listed for Calif, will have the CA in BLUE as the prefix
to the listing. You may have to go back several pages to see listings
in a paticular State, as all listing are listed as they are posted.

I'm going to assume that your also watching Craigslist, in and around
your buying area. There would be a larger selling pool to choose from
on that site.

You can change the classifieds to show only the CA section.

Also check Auto Trader and Carmax. Even check Ebay. I know a few people that have found really good deals on Ebay. If the seller is a dealer, many can arrange to have it delivered to you. Of course, you probably want to take a look first though and take it to a mechanic. Never trust the seller on a vehicle that old.

You can even go to Jeep.com and search used vehicles according to how far you're willing to drive. Dealers might not be as likely to have one that old though.

Before buying my Jeep I wish someone had given me the heads up on all the mods. If I had know then what I know now I would of spent more for a more trail ready Jeep.
ARB Lockers - 1K each
Winch - 1K
Lift - 500
Tires and Rims - 1K
Bumpers - 1.2K
Air Compressor - 500

You might be better to spent a little more if possible and get a Jeep with this stuff installed. Normally the cost of the mod is pennies on resales.

Idk much but I'd disagree with the above poster.
A $500 lift? Idk about that... I wouldn't feel safe lol an ok lift Is around 1k+ (I want one but still can't afford it)

Besides, you, building your rig... That's the fun part. U wanna know what YOU have and know that's well done u know?

The lockers? Ya that's good but other than that? I would buy it as stock as possible and build it up little by little at your own pace/budget.

But that's just my 2cents

I'm not sure you'll find a '97 or earlier for 7,000. I may be wrong, but I looked for a long time and couldn't find a '97 or earlier that was in even decent shape for that price in CA. Maybe open up your search to out of state just a little. Be patient though, you may get lucky.

Here in LA I have seen several for around 7k, when I was looking for a wrangler I had $3700 and knew It had to b a YJ and so I filtered by price up to $4500 so I could talk him down to around what I had... But didn't work lol (bad negotiator I am)
The guy wanted 4100 for mine and he took 3700 I think.

So I'd say filter for $7500 and below and depending on where in CA u live, u might score something nice.

Here's a few examples:

All good advise thanks everyone.I have found a dozen of goods buys but I'm very picky about what I'm buying.as far as bumpers and all the fabrication side I can do. I have been into the desert racing scene for a while so I can save there. As far as all the lockers and gears,shocks,lights,winch,tires,wheels,ect....I'm gonna have to buy,so I would love to find one with some mods.I think all the money is in axles and transfer case.hopfully I can chime in soon with my new jeep.this money is burning a hole in my pocket.

You biult that? Very nice, it looks like all the tire weight is carried by the bumper, is that working? Powdercoat or paint? Is it on the heavy side? Nice work.

4 cylinder ugh! Not that the 6 is a race horse but 190HP vs 125HP. Get some larger tires and a tiny 4 might struggle.

Suggest that you test drive both. When I started looking I was shocked how some short arm lifted TJs drove. One with a 4" lift was hard to hold straight going down the street. Others were so soft you thought they would roll over with a gust of wind. Even if they are out of your budget it gives you different ideas as to what you want.

I got a 2003 hard top rubi with full doors for sale. It has nice mods on it. But no winch...I'm sort of anti winch....but if you can add some more $$ to that 7k then you might want to check it out? I am looking to get a 2012 4 door Rubi

...send me your email and I can send you pics and a brief write up. I need to find a good home for It.

Cheers,

I have a YJ and it is rough, but it has stock suspension and chances are.. Ur gonna lift it and add shocks/leaf springs.
I mean, it's rough but u get used to it, it grows on u. At first I doubted it but it really does. I also have a 1yr old puppy and she rides with me no problem. I'm sure u can handle it.
