I personally like CJs better...the square headlights bother me. However, finding a CJ in decent condition that's not going to cost an arm and a leg in repairs/restoration for less than $5000 is going to be hard. YJs will cost a bit more, but they shouldn't need as much work.

Ill sell you my YJ for $5000, lifted, locked, has a 258 with FI

Lots of new fresh parts.



Oh and I like YJ's better, CJs are cool, but YJ's have alot of parts that are just all around better.



If you really like the CJ look more I can give you a CJ front clip when you buy my YJ Mr. Green

My vote would be YJ with a 4.0. Before I bought mine last November I wheeled my grand cherokee with mostly CJ owners and when I was ready to get a swb I asked around alot. I got different opinions from many sources. Most of the CJ guys said I should go YJ, some others think that jeeps should have round headlights (purely cosmetic). I got my 92 YJ for $3500 and love it, all though I miss the soft ride and flex of coil springs. I live in central WA and wheel in the cascades, a huge benifit of my 92 YJ is fuel injection. The computer controls elevation changes and I don't have a problem with getting rich like CJ's, also steep hills cause problems with my CJ friends when their carbs load up.



Just my opinion. Hope it helps.


PS I do like the round headlights, but could not afford a TJ or a CJ.
