I got a 97 zj off a family member about two months back, for damn near nothing. It was in pretty good shape to begin with, just needed some tlc.
No rust, no body damage, engine is good, tranny is good, just was neglected.
This will be pulling double duty as my dd and my offroad toy.
My goal is to be into it for less than $4k by the time i'm done.
