Hi everyone, I'm from NC and considering purchasing a Wrangler or a XJ. I am looking at 1998 - 2000 year models and was wondering what your guys input was I love playing off road, but I am also going to be using this for daily transportation for the next 2 tears until I get outta school. With that said when I do purchase one I am defiantly going to do some mods lift, rims/ tires, etc. Is there any suggestions one verses the other, problem areas, etc. The particular Wrangler I am currently looking at is a soft top any downsides to them also. Thanks in advance for your input.
