I have purchaced my lifted 87 Cherokee with a locked D44 and 4:56 gears on 32s for $2500, my 93 YJ stock was $2200 and I got a 95 YJ, 4cyl, auto for my son for $1200. Parted out a 90 YJ I got for $850 and made my money back. Also parted out a 93 Cherokee I got for $300, my friends call me the Craigslist whore, but the deals are out there. You just have to be dilgent, act fast and have cash.
