When do you turn 18? Save untill then and then you will have a nice downpayment and you can finance the rest and get a much newer one. You may still have a hard time getting financed though without a cosigner having 0 credit history to your name, but the large downpayment can only help, and you have to build credit somehow anyway.

Im in the same dilema ur in. Im 16 and have a 89 yj 4 cly and want to sell it and get a 4.0 6cly. I have about the same price range as you do, 4-6k. Ive done some researching and shopping and found that you can find a clean, low mileage, lifted yj priced less than a stock tj, most of the time. but like some of the other ppl said, there are deals out there, so search around(craigslist). ive found that tjs are just a more modern jeep and i think thats y ppl like them so much. but if ur interested in a yj, search for a 91 and up model, bc 87-90 6cly were carbuerated. Another thing to consider when looking at prices is to see if the jeep comes with a top and doors. good luck

Well found another jeep 1997 4.0l it has full doors and a hard top its also and automatic (really want a 5spd). It has 136,000 miles and its $5,000. I went to see it and it was very clean only problem I found was that the driver seat was torn. Is it worth it?

I'd buy a last year yj (95) for I believe it was honestly the most reliable year (for all jeeps in general) But thats just me
