I look every day foir a second YJ

I should have bought the 88 with a seized engine 3 months ago for 1200...
I backed out because the BA10 was bad too.

Id buy #2 personally

haha funny because I was always looking at number 1. It seems like there has been a lot of improvements and accessories added onto it. If I were to get number 1 to $4000, would that be a much better option than 2, 3, and 4?

for number two, the guy told me the clutch needs to be bled and the housing for the transfer case needed work. is that an easy fix? does it cost a lot?

thanks again for the help

number two would be the best if you have money to invest. it has the 4.0 which is worth waiting for if number 2 dosen't work out.

Too much money for 3 and 4(plus salvage title, ew).

1 sounds high too but work a look. IMHO 2 is still too much if it's broke.

I got my 95' 4cyl 5 spd. $2600. It needed nothing really, not that i left it alone but thats my fault. LOL!

I'd look in to #2 some more. What is the milage? Is it an auto or manual (if it matters to you)? Interior condition? Over all condition? If everything checks out I'd still talk him down on it. #1 might be worth $4k if it had a 4.0 6cyl. Just me...

Gravity is not a law... it's a option so get use to seeing my taillights!

I laugh out loud when some one says they have a '96 Wrangler they want to sell me...
