New in NY

Hi All,
As I'm sure was true for most of you, I grew up obsessed with Jeeps. I've never had one (still don't), but 2 of my exes drove Jeeps and I stole keys all the damn time.
I'm ready to pick up a second car as a runabout while I overhaul my main set of wheels. I know it might border on heresy (blasphemy?) but I really want a diesel wrangler. Jeep says they're going to start offering them in the 2016 model, but I don't need or want new. I just want a solid truck with a diesel engine and a stick shift that I can drive in & out of the city when I'm not out on spirited drives. Or when I don't feel like riding on the lunar surface that is our potholed streets with a track suspension. Either/Or.
So, salutations all!

Common Qs?

i suppose i should also ask, are there certain questions i should always have in mind when looking to buy a wrangler? Im almost certainly going for one with a blown/dying/sh!t motor so i can pull it & do the diesel conversion, but any advice on shopping around, esp with earlier (pre ~2000ish) rigs?

Appreciate any & all advice, thanks.
