Well ive recently come across a guy whos selling a 1990 Red YJ.
Only problem its an I4 5 speed manual with 215k on the engine,but it was rebuilt 10k ago same with the transmission(only 35k ago).Its got like 2" suspension lift and 2.5" body lift,with 32"s,6klb winch,working snorkel,and the body and frame are in really good condition.What im wonderin is,is this thing worth $2500 that he wants for it.I personally think it might be,because im looking for something that I can wheel every so often on the weekends(nothing major though) and drive every morning to work,i only need it to last me until next summer though.Any opinion helps,thanks.

Did you look it up in the Kelley Blue Book. Not sure what all options it has, but I came up with $2,900. Have you driven it though? The 4-cyl isn't a whole lotta fun as a daily driver, especially when you put larger tires on it.

oh yeah, here's the link to the blue book. http://www.kbb.com/

yea around $2500-2900 on KBB is what I got too.
I didnt drive it but i have started it up and rolled it a bit
just to check the clutch and transmission.
Any reason though why 4cyls arent as fun as a daily driver?
i mean i dont really care about it being fun as a daily driver
because im usually stuck in traffic anyways here in the boston area
so even if it was a 6cyl and still wouldnt be fun.

The 4-cyl with larger tires that hasn't been regeared can be challenging when trying to get up to speed (merging, passing, etc.) If you're prepared for it, it's not the end of the world, just something to think about.
