BigEZ since you're already on a budget, I'd just try to make sure you get one already geared/axled close to how you want it; unless you're a motorhead and can do it yourself for very little cost. Upgrading those will be (by far) my most expensive mod.

XJ Knight Probably out of your price range but it looks nice IMO

InfernoGirl A 99-02 TJ in that price range is gonna be well used or a 4 banger... I'd say get s 97ish i6 and save up/use any remainder mod it. FYI my 01 with 38k was over $11k private party a year and a half ago... There are better deals out there, but mine was cherry, bone stock and loved by her PO...

Any Benefits to Buying New(er)?

As I still wait for my tax return to come in, so I can get my Jeep, I'm faced with the decision to buy a '99-'02 TJ fully, or go newer and get financed for the extra $5,000-7,000ish.

I will be driving this 30 min. each way to work 5 days a week, and plan to also take it off-roading when I can, but nothing extremely serious. I'd like to go over fallen branches, through mud and over rough terrain, more so than climbing any rocks or going on advanced obsticles.

I was thinking about a 3" suspension lift, a 1" body lift and 33" tires. Maybe re-gearing and new axles if needed.

Now, if I go for the more expensive Wrangler ('04-'08) I would use just about all of my spare money on the down payment, and finance the rest, but if I buy a '99-'02 out right, I will have some left over to star working on it right away.

Besides the possibility of less rust on the body, is there a worth-while benefit to buying newer? I'm leaning toward the '99-'02 Jeeps I've been looking at that are going for around $4,000-$6,000.
