What do you guys think about this? http://lasvegas.craigslist.org/cto/4189520907.html
I'm trying to find my younger brother (16 years old) a cheap vehicle. This needs some work, but my brother only has to drive five miles a day and this could be a nice toy on the weekends for him.
Hopefully this isn't someone's on the forum, but I think the vehicle is worth about half the asking price? Given the risk factor in having to fix it up. I was going to make an offer but I'm wondering if I should just pass altogether.
Me likes them YJ's. Well......after you modify the pee out of them. BTW: Are you planning on being in JV prior to Turkey Day? Mike & I are hoping to get there early on Friday the week prior if at all possible.
I am considering selling my 2010 Rubicon and my 2008 Mazda3 together to get some money back towards school and then I would pick myself up a YJ (or a TJ) as a dedicated trail toy and a pickup truck like a Tacoma or something as my daily driver.
I'm not really sure what I should do. The Rubicon was actually my fathers and I inherited the title but I do not want to own two *new* vehicles and I don't want to daily drive the Rubicon. Like all Jeeps, it has held its value tremendously well and I am thinking about selling it before I destroy it on a trail.
People have already told me I'm being a brat for wanting to sell such a nice truck, but I can't justify wheeling a $25k Jeep while I'm still paying my way through school and taking care of my younger brother.
Any advice? Sorry, my thoughts are kind of scattered.
I would never pay over 3k for a YJ unless its got a 5.3 one tons.
I picked up my current TJ for 4k cash. 4.0 auto Dana 44, 33's. (I find good deals though)
I would love a TJ, it's what I originally wanted when I was in high school. I don't mind YJ's though, I think they're really cool. I'll try keep an eye out for a deal like yours but, from the market, it seems like you got really lucky. The nice TJ's I've been seeing are all closer to $8000+
I definitely want to keep the price down on it near $5000 because I will definitely have to buy something else. I do not want to use a wrangler as my daily driver.
And as for XJ's, I think I'm just more of a Wrangler guy. There's something about taking the top off that I would miss too much.
