cjs are fine jeeps. i myself had one for awhile but traded out for a yj just because it was a better daily driver for me. they do have a backseat or should for that matter, unless the guy got rid of it. it is the cj5 that has the limited back room. it also comes with a seat but there is not much room to put anything. from my experience they are good. there is a lot more play in the steering wheel than newer jeeps and the ride is a little rough but that can be fixed with upgrades. other than the carburator blowing up in my dad's face when we tried to rebuild it ( he had no eyebrows for quite awhile) it ran ok. all in all they are fine if they have been taken care of.

Thanks, that's the info I was looking for. Interestingly, I've got 2 97's and the CJ in the "works" right now, talk about dicotomy (sp?), it should be interesting, but at least I know how to work on a Chevy 350 engine, so we'll see.
