Stock yj suspension is easy as dirt to work on too. The hardest part is getting out the bolts

How come the XJ guys aren't coming in here? I would have thought they'd bum rush this thread with coil/leaf speak.

XJ would be the cheapest option, but only because they're garbage.

I'm not very mechanically inclined so I don't want something I'd have to dump a load of money into. I also want as close to stock as I can get so I know what I'm working with
Stick to a tj. If you don't like having to work on a project the newer, cleaner is better. Most yj's in my area have cancer issues.

This ^^
I had an '05 tj rubi before my yj. I beat on it for 8 years before I got the yj. I love my yj so much more than I ever loved my tj. Partly because all the reasons listed before (cheaper to buy, cheaper parts,easier to work on, blah blah blah) and partly because the yj guys here really are the best, and mostly because for some reason the yj calls to me the most emotionally. Its rough and ready, just comfortable enough to DD, and the square eyes are mean!

Get a yj and have fun

Cheers

I've got a 2 door jk, a 2001 TJ and am constantly under my friend YJ.


Honestly I like the yj. Bang for your buck the yj value and simplicity is irrefutable


I'll probably dump the jk in three years and build a cj. Makes me feel like I'm in high school when I'm in a cj. But that's another story.

Let me guess, you had a few dates in the back of your CJ?

I wouldn't think there's a big problem with rust in Texas wher the op is located but only he would know for sure. Here in the south most vehicles stay pretty cancer free. But I would still get a '95 because of the galvanized frame.

And better brakes. And a few other things they did better.

This.

I should have just bought the Rubicon sticker...would have been a lot cheaper.
