What to buy, Tj or Yj?

I'm 15 years old, turn 16 in exactly one week. I've always loved Wranglers, and im looking forward to finally getting one once i save up enough. I research them a lot and i thought for the longest time that i wanted to buy a yj for my first, but recently thats changed. I decided that i think i want a tj, but i figured id go here and ask for some help from you guys. i still have a little time before ill be buying one but itd be cool to have some feedback soon. Thanks!

If it will be your DD I would look into the TJ. They are newer and will be more reliable than most YJs.

I would agree go tj if you can they are newer and tend to rust less. If a DD in your part of the country I would look for a hardtop. If possible a 4.0 but they tend to bring a higher price. If you do get a 2.5 or 4 cylinder tj keep the tires under 31 inch tires and if it is a manual it will be good for around town. They cost less because they do not have the power for bigger tires. The drawback is 4 or 6 both get about the same mileage.

FYI TJ or YJ they are not good on gas.

Good luck in your search and as a father of a new driver please be carful!
