Owned a new 1997 TJ back in the day, sold it in the first year and am wanting to get back into a Wrangler. Just want to start off small with an inexpensive YJ as a winter vehicle and take it from there. Spotted a 1991 yellow 4 cylinder YJ with a roll bar, winch, fog lamps and soft and bikini tops.Asking price $2800. The body has 325 000 kms but the motor was replaced some time ago and has according to the owner 150 000 kms only.. The engine swap can be confirmed because of mismatched VIN numbers. That's all i know for now......am thinking that if all runs well a price of $2000-$2400 might work.....any thoughts ideas or advice. I know very little about the YJ's . I have been told to make sure the heater works because they tend to be a problem area making winter driving uncomfortable....I line in Vancouver Canada where winters are fairly mild.
P.S. For some reason i didn't give Jeep ownership much of a chance when i bought my 1997 TJ. It came with only a soft top, half doors and I bought it at the tail end of winter. Since then i have ridden jeeps from time to time and rented a new JK in Mazatlan for a week and had a good time exploring the beach and sandy areas of town. Any advice would be appreciated.....Should i skip the YJ and try for another TJ....JK is out of my budget right now. Also the YJ's seem to have a lot more character....older retro is better Ha ha .
