Need help please

Looking at buying my first jeep and have two great jeeps narrowed down just not sure which is the best. Looking at a 1982 CJ7 and a 1992 jeep wrangler YJ. Both are in great condition the CJ7 has 100,000 miles on it and the YJ has 169,000. Main use will be driving around the hunting lease and occasionally drive on the highway. Needing to know which one to go with they are both the same price so I couldn't rule one out because of that. The CJ 7 has a 6 cylinder and the YJ has a 4 cylinder. Both are already lifted and have nice extras. Any help will be greatly appreciated for this first time jeep owner thanks

You will not be happy with the fourbanger.
1. Stupidity should be more painful!
2. Don't believe everything you think!
3. Your post is as worthless as you!

Do any of the sellers have all of the papers for the work done? That's normally a sign they take great care of their vehicles...but you probably would have more fun 6 cylinders.

No one is happy with the 4 cylinder in a YJ. The cj7 is a carb on a 4.2 (going from memory) the YJ should be FI. If all you will be doing is low speed, you can gear the 4 down and get by. If you'll be on pavement the 4 will fall flat no matter what.
