Choices.... Waaaay too many... Help please!

Newbie of course. Read everything I could search and find but just so much info and my lack of mechanical knowledge makes picking a particular model of jeep, year, etc... Impossible! Please point me in the right direction!,....

Looking for these things:

Year: doesn't matter, like the cj7 look, and I'm 6ft tall and someone here said something about the cj5 being limited room wise
Price: 3000, ish, will just be a toy basically
engine: ... I just don't want to go up a hill and worry about not making it, I don't care about gas mileage, I do care about it working and being relatively maintenance free.... I mean that as in difficult or a lot of wrench work required

Anything else I should be concerned with or think about? Any ideas ? I love the lifted look with 33's also... Looking for just a particular year, range, engine, etc I should look for to meet the above stated things I mentioned, please help...

all jeeps are basically the same, some got better axles, better motor but basically the same, just buy the first one that looks pretty to you

That's what I'm asking... What's more dependable...?

Or is there a more dependable setup vs whatever? Help a newbie out...

I would suggest saving another $3k and purchasing a TJ. I've owned CJs, YJs, and TJs. The fuel injected 6 cylinder coupled with coil springs is tough to beat.
