Jeep purchase recommendations

I'm looking to buy a jeep as a second car. I live in NYC and this car will stay at a second home at the beach (form time to time, it may make the ~100 mile journey back to manhattan, but that's not the primary purpose).

I'm considering a CJ, YJ or TJ, but am not interested in anything newer.

Looking for advice on what to consider, years to avoid, etc., as well as what I can expect to pay for a jeep in really good condition (I'm uninterested in purchasing a POS, so I'm willing to pay for something decent).

Appreciate any insight!

the youngest model (TJ) you're considering is already 14-23 years old. the TJ is also the most refined, while still keeping the jeep feel. to find either model that requires no work may be a challenge. plus condition (rust) and price varies greatly geographically .

best advice, is start shopping craigslist, and go look at as any as you can. this is the best way to educate yourself and set your expectations. don't be in a hurry. it took me 4 months to find mine.

I am multi-talented, I can talk and piss you off at the same time.
