Thanks for adding me. We recently moved to the mountains and we want to buy a used Jeep for exploring the Appalachians. Usually trips of a couple of hundred miles or less. I am 75 years old, so will not be doing serious off roading. Joined this group to learn more about which model will work best for us (wife and two dogs). Budget is 5k or less, able to do some mechanical work. Any recommendations from the group?

Just remember, all good things come in time..

^^^This will give you a look at the different Years and Models.

Probably a YJ, OR TJ. But a more realistic price maybe 7-$8000. Look the frames over for rust..VERY IMPORTANT. Good luck with your search..........
