Looking to get Jeeping
I've never been a motor head, but being kind of a no-frills guy, I've always admired the Jeep from afar. Now that kiddies are off to college, I want to get a Jeep. Here's the rub: I know little about the warhorses. I'm hoping some of the experts can clue me in on the relative merits of CJs, YJs and TJs for my purposes.
I am looking for an in-town runabout with limited OR use. And more: I want to get a diesel conversion--I've heard Jasper engines and their authorized installers can drop a small Cummins in a Wrangler that is torquey, long-lived and gets decent mileage. I've heard the conversion is $7K to $10K, which I would be willing to do if I got a clean, rolling Wrangler for under $3K.
My questions for you:
replying to myself
I've seen a lot of threads on diesel swaps in the forum, but I'd still like to find out the relative merits of CJ/YJ/TJ if anyone can help.
Also, spotted a rust-free '88 Wrangler for sale on Craigslist for $1,800 with a rod knock. This might be my start!
