Decisions...need advice

I have a real decision to make!

I currently have an 84 CJ-7 and an 88 GrandWagoneer. The CJ has a very bad body but perfect drive train. The GW has a perfect body but blown engine and may need tranny work. Both will cost around the same to fix and both get around the same gas mileage. Both are fun to drive (the CJ is a little more fun in the summer but the GW has air and "feels" a little safer to my wife). I have to get rid of one. I think I know the advice from this group, but I am on the fence and need advice...

Thanks!!!

You thought right... save the CJ, ditch the Waggy... However, before you do, grab some of the Waggy's parts...

I say ditch the wife and keep em both!!!!!

j/k, in this forum, you keep the CJ, but keeping anything off the other one that is usable isn't a bad way to go.
