Yeah in north texas (Dallas area) so rust isn't an issue. The problem with a yj is finding one even remotely stock

I've owned both a Tj and a Yj. My Tj was ok I had a bunch of issues with it , My YJ I had for 7 years and it never let me down once. I loved that jeep I regret selling her every day. Soon as I can save up enough I plan on Buying another red 95 YJ but this one will be a DD do it'll have a mild build. OME lift and 31's m/t classic 2's chrome grill overlay with chrome headlight bezels , and chrome hood hinges . And some LOD bumpers front and rear. That jeep will be a pavement pounder since the XJ is the wheeling toy

Having owned both, I can say that they both have their places. The first thing that needs to be established is your goals for the Jeep. Next is your mechanical aptitude. If you plan on a lot of road driving and don't see yourself going wheeling often (or ever) A TJ is the way to go. They are newer, have more creature comforts and are way more refined on the road. On the flip side, If you are wanting something to cut your teeth on and get into wheeling, a YJ is the best route. Simple suspension design will allow a novice to perform all his or her own work. They are typically cheaper, and can be made to perform. Leaf springs doesn't always mean BAD. That said, I just bought an 03 TJ with a 4 cyl... Opt for a 4.0 or 4.2 in whichever you go with... The 2.4L is an absolute dog in this jeep.

Seems like there's a lot of good argument for a YJ.

1991 YJ: Daily Driver
1992 YJ: Pile of crap sitting in the garage.
