Re: Buying a Jeep
Well as far as labour is concerned, I can do everything but weld myself. I'm not certified (certifiable maybe) but have many years experience turning wrenches on my vehicles and those of my friend's...
The reason I asked about the coil conversion is that I could get a YJ, do the conversion for ~1500 (that's one price i found anyway), have a 5" suspension lift with that, and then I don't have to screw around with airbags and that interior. I don't know about you guys, but around here it's illegal to remove airbags from a vehicle, and I sure don't want to be stuck with that steering wheel.
As far as cost, I'll spend what I have to. As far as mods, that's just a constant over time. :-) Either the money's going into my race car or the rig. I'd prefer to not have to be stressing over the race car every weekend. I was just hoping there was going to be a definitive answer for YJ vs TJ. Sorry CJ guys, I need a sizable aftermarket. Remember, I don't know how to weld so I'm limited with what I can fab up. :-)
