Is 171,000mile 2.5L to old to play?
I've had this YJ for a few years now and its been my daily driver the whole time. Its a little rough, which is to be expected for something with 171,000 miles and 15 years old. I'm from Michigan, so I got quite a few rust spots and holes. The engine seems to fire up nicely, never failed to start when it had a good battery. My friends laugh at ut, but over all I like it (other than my no power 2.5L)
I've gotten to a point in life now where I can think about getting a second vehicle. My delima is that I love the YJ, and just about any Wrangler, but I wouldnt mind a sport sedean or hatchback either. My question to this group is this: Is my YJ to old to get into the game? It is as close to stock as I think you can get. No suspension changes, no engine mods, 28" tires, original bumperettes. I do not go off roading with it as none of my current friends are into this, and being in southeast Michigan, there really isnt a lot of place to off road at, without being a huge hike to get to.
If I get a sedan or hatchback, I'd love to keep the Jeep, but I'd like to make it more "jeep like", it seems so small parked next to other jeeps.
My other route is to buy a newer Jeep, which seems to be a TJ, as YJs in decent condition seem to be either to far away or out of my price range.
What do you guys think? Is it to old to play?
