Tough call.

5 grand would do ALOT for a YJ.

New Jeep would last for a long time. But probably not get modded for a while.

Depends how much you like your YJ. If I had your option with my TJ, I would take the 5 grand.

If your YJ is kinda a crapper with cancer and it chokes when running id take the new wheels .

that's tough man, i would take the 5k, because i'm going to be doing a hardcore build in the next couple years anyway. but if my jeep was already pretty stock like yours, i would take the new one.

Your parents have seen the price tag on a new rubicon right?

Anyways, as much as i love my yj, i would prob say go for the jk. It will last longer.

So you're really thinking over picking between $5k for YJ parts (which is awesome) or a $35k Rubi (which is like Jessica Biel showing up at your house naked AWESOME)? I don't understand how there's even a decision to be made. Go for the Rubi and keep the YJ. Or sell the YJ for JK parts.

Tell your parents to call me if they want to adopt......

Or... get the Rubi, sell it, and have 35K in YJ parts? OR SELL THE RUBI AND GET $35,000 WORTH OF COCAINE! YES.

Ask your parents if they could give you the $5000 for parts and put the remaining $30,000 and put it into some kind of investment for you.....ah I'm sure if they're willing to buy you a brand new vehicle you're probably already set there anyway.

If we had 35K worth of pure cocaine, we could do some ****. Kid, we have just secured your future. You know what to do.
