Tired of rusted out jeeps in Michigan

I have been looking for an XJ or ZJ model jeep in Michigan for about a year. Most that I have looked at are all rusted out. If not rusted they are asking way too much.

Are there any good sites that specialize in Jeeps for sale that havn't spent their time in the rust zones? I have looked around but nothing has jumped out.

Unfortunately going this route I would have to buy without seeing or test driving. And I would also have to ship it to my location.

Just check out craigslists in AZ. There are a ton on Tucson and Phoenix all the time and they always have little to no rust.

If you want a rust free xj here in Michigan, prepare to pay quite a bit more, my friend payed $5300 for a rust free 2000 xj sport with 120,000 miles 4 years ago.

And I just sold my 1997 xj 5 speed for $4000 almost rust free with 114,000 miles. What some people I know do, is they go down to Tennessee or around there and they can find rust free Cherokees for half the price then up here because they're hard to find up here

Find one in Arizona and pay for my trip there and back and I'll take a week off work to do it. My buddy lives there and I'd love to go visit. He also builds off road vehicles hehe.
