New guy considering buying a Jeep...

Hello guys. Ive recently been tossing around the idea of selling my '94 Mustang GT and getting a Jeep. The main reason for getting rid of the GT is that it just doesnt fit my lifestyle anymore. For the past 1.5 years my and my friends have been constantly going out in the woods to hunt, cook, or just shoot, and frankly, a lowered GT just isnt the best vehicle for the woods. I cant even get to the gate to the property because of all the dirt roads leading up to it, so I always have to ride with someone else. This past weekend my friend flipped his lifted Chevy 1500, so now I guess we need another main vehicle to get there, and I have been wanting to get something else besides the GT.

How much should I be expecting to pay for a late YJ or an early TJ? Im not to particular on condition, as long as its not rusted, runs good, and has descent tires on it. I dont care about the paint, because Ill just paint it flat black or OD green.

Thanks for any info guys, Im sure Ill fit in great around here.

Those will usually run anywhere from $3000 to $10000. I'd get a TJ if I were you, because they seem to run better than YJs and have most of the kinks worked out. (No offense YJ'ers) You could probably find one on Craig's List around $5000 in pretty good condition.

If I wanted a Hummer, I would have asked your sister.

From what Ive seen, a YJ seems like it would fit into my budget more. Im hoping to get $3500 for my GT, and Im a college student working part time, so money will be an issue. I do not want a 4 cyl though, which is probably why Im seeing all the TJs out of my budget.

You should be able to find a decent YJ in your range... Keep looking, and you'll run across one eventually...
