In Pgh, another noob

After a hiatus from a Cherokee, i am looking and lurking.
Figure i should say hello here since i don't yet have a Jeep to call my own.
Hoping to get into an old CJ or Wrangler (YJ or TJ). Looking for a project to an extent 2k-4k
Looking to do some wheeling and keep it streetable, but comfort and gas mileage are not a concern.
That said, anything you guys wouldn't do?


I love all cars and trucks honestly- big little old new. But always wanted a Wrangler or CJ so i figure now is the time. Why not.

My search continues....
Yj tj cj
All coming down to pricing and condition.
I am hoping to grab something with a few aftermarket parts on it.

Plus side- my wife is onboard with this, but thinks i should also keep my current toy as well ( 80s VW).

TJ 4.0. But I know what you mean about wanting something even older.

Cjs are cool but parts are pricey. And the rear amc20 sucks. But otherwise they're cool. Yjs are OK but lots of fie hard jeepers don't dig the square lights lol. Petty. Tjs have tons of aftermarket support.

Ditto on the TJ 4.0.But consider a YJ also. It is true that some dudes think that the square headlights are, well..square. I kind of like look personally, and there is kind of a panache about owning the red-headed step-child of the Jeep world. Also there is no doubt about what model Jeep it is when meeting a fellow Yankee Juliet on the highway.

Thanks all
The search continues....
I am too slow for the good ones and the ones i have been catching are rust buckets. :-/

I would like a 6cyl for sure, but wouldn't kick a 4-banger out of the driveway.
Side note:So much room under the hood of a four banger Wrangler!
