Kijiji is your best bet. That's where I got mine. But with YJ's... Cheap is the opposite of what you want. Unless it's for parts or a restoration project.
I paid 4000$ for mine. Had 230k on it. Now has 305k new engine in it now, has 97km
I don't know what kind of jeep you have now. I can't see that on my phone. But a few cautions, more like heads up about owning a YJ.

You will almost never find parts at pick and pull.
If you find a YJ or a Wrangler, it's picked clean in less than a day.
Runzers is a good place to look. And again, kijiji. Post what you want or need and wait. Otherwise, hope quadratec or 4wd has the parts. Then you have to wait for them and the international shipping quote.

But, they are funner than hell.
I've been looking to get some jeepers in Edmonton together ( not a group or club, just some off-roaders going out for a day)
I know a couple spots.

ended up finding a 94 for 700$ in a trailer park its rusty but it runs and drives really good, the old man I bought it from said it was rebuilt at 200k and its at 252, frame seems solid. even with a hardtop she's damn chilly though I cant wait for summer so the snow melts and makes mud and I can take the top and enjoy the sun until then buurrrrr.
